Switzerland vs Serbia match preview, FIFA world cup 2022

Switzerland and Serbia will square off for the final position in Group G’s knockout round in a replay of their 2018 World Cup match, which was hotly contested but marred by political tensions.

On three points, Switzerland appears to be in a good position to join Brazil in the round of 16. Unless Cameroon pulls off an unexpected victory against Brazil

in which case goal difference would be the deciding factor, a win over Serbia would assure them a spot in the next round, while a draw would also be sufficient.

Serbia’s path to the knockout round is far more difficult. They must defeat Switzerland by a wide margin and then hope for a very specific result in the Cameroon-Brazil match

Serbia’s path to the knockout round is far more difficult. They must defeat Switzerland by a wide margin and then hope for a very specific result in the Cameroon-Brazil match

preferably a victory for Cameroon by a tight margin so Serbia may surpass the African team in goal differential.

But when the Swiss and Serbs meet, stress will also come from other factors. They only faced up against one another once, during the World Cup’s group stage. Fans still recall that game as having significant political overtones.

Granit Xhaka, a Swiss midfielder who was born in Basel to ethnic Albanian parents from Kosovo, formed a double-headed eagle with his hands to symbolize Albanian nationalism as he celebrated his goal against Serbia.
