The UEFA Euro 2020 is back with a set of important quarterfinal fixtures this weekend as Spain take on Sweden at the Krestovsky Stadium on Friday. Both teams won gruelling knock-out contests earlier this week and will have to dig deep to get through this match.
Switzerland pulled off the upset of the tournament so far as they stunned France in a penalty shoot-out to reach the quarterfinals. The Swiss can pack a punch on their day and will need a similar performance to get to the next stage of Euro 2020.
Spain started their Euro 2020 campaign in an underwhelming fashion but have managed to bounce back and score ten goals in two games. The Spaniards pulled off a brilliant 5-3 victory against Croatia in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this match.
Switzerland vs Spain Team News
Granit Xhaka picked up his second yellow card against France this week and his suspension will come as a major blow to Switzerland’s fortunes. Denis Zakaria will likely replace the Arsenal star in midfield and will have to work his socks off against Spain.
Mario Gavranovic scored the equaliser against France and is likely to feature at some point in this game. Haris Seferovic was also impressive on the day and is set to lead the line alongside Breel Embolo.
Suspended: Granit Xhaka
Pedri admirably held his own against Croatia’s star-studded midfield and is set to feature alongside Sergio Busquets and Koke for La Furia Roja. Unai Simon made amends for his mistake with a string of excellent saves this week and is likely to keep his place in the team.
Eric Garcia was preferred over Pau Torres in the Round of 16 and Luis Enrique could persist with the Catalan defender against Switzerland. Ferran Torres was one of the best players on the pitch against Croatia and should play a part in this match.
