Serbia v Switzerland- World Cup 2018

Serbia v Switzerland Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 22nd June – 7.00 p.m

This will be a pretty intense battle in Group E between the two European sides in the race for a qualification spot. With Brazil expected to take one of the two slots, this could well decide who follows the Selecao through to the next round. Serbia holds the advantage of having collected three points from their opener and they will be taking on the Swiss who earned an excellent draw against Brazil in their opening game.

Serbia have three points on the board then after taking an opening win over Costa Rica. That was only a narrow 1-0 victory but that frankly doesn’t matter. It means that Serbia are in contention for a place in the round of sixteen and a draw in this one would edge them closer to doing that. This is just their second ever appearance in the World Cup as Serbia and all of their World Cup matches have seen Serbia fail to score more than one goal in. For our Serbia v Switzerland predictions were are looking under 1.5 goals is at 6/4 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 20th, 2018 at 8:11 p.m.). This should be a tight fixture and the Serbians are carrying good form with three wins in their last four played and that win over Costa Rica means that they have conceded just one goal in those four games. So that’s a pretty good defensive record and suggest that they will keep Switzerland at arm’s length. Another clean sheet here would be a massive boon for them.

They will want to push for the win though because they have to take on Brazil in their final game. So the incentive here is to get another three points, secure qualification and not have to worry about getting anything out of that final game. A Serbia 1-0 option in the bet365 correct score market is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 8:11 p.m.). You only have to look back at the qualification campaign that Serbia put together to see how well they fought and battled, as they topped their group ahead of the likes of Austria, Ireland and Wales and deserved huge credit. They have some good strengths, blending experience and young talent. Up front, their main man is Aleksandar Mitrovic but it was Aleksandar Kolarov who got their winner against Costa Rica.

Switzerland News and Form

The Swiss surprisingly got a point out of Brazil in a 1-1 draw in their opening game of the tournament although there was some controversy about their equalizer. Three points here would leave them in a strong position to qualify as it would move them above Serbia and Switzerland only have to face Costa Rica in their final game whereas Serbia would face Brazil. So the Swiss too will know the importance of getting three points here. They are carrying a bit of form with a W3 D3 record in their last six and they are a very well drilled side and know what they are doing. They have four clean sheets in their last six and that’s just another clue that this will be a low scoring fixture so both teams not to score at bet365 is at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 8:11 p.m.). Switzerland have scored in five of their last six games and so should stand up to the Serbians. The question is, can they do enough going forward to get a win against a side who will match up well against them and who will also be very hungry for a win?
