Switzerland v Spain Match Preview & Trends

Can unfancied Swiss keep surprising everyone at the expense of Spain?

St Petersburg is the host city for this fascinating contest between Switzerland and Spain. Having beaten France and Croatia respectively in the last 16 to reach this stage both sides will be confident ahead of this vital quarter-final match-up. A trip to London awaits the winners of this game where they will play either Belgium or Italy at Wembley Stadium in front of an expected large crowd. 

The tournament has had many twists and turns so far, will the unpredictable trend continue in this fascinating knockout phase? With the quality of players on show, anything can happen and we are in for another rollercoaster ride as we approach the latter stages.

After causing perhaps the upset of the Euros so far by defeating the World Champions France, Switzerland will have no fear. They have momentum behind them and are looking like very dangerous opponents for any side they face. The belief gained from the shock victory over the French in the last 16 will be huge and now they have the world’s attention, not many would write them off now as they would have previously.

Spain have shown signs of growing into the tournament with some classy football which has finally produced an end product. For all their attacking and passing excellence they struggled for goals initially but no cannot stop scoring. The problem for Luis Enrique is that they are also conceding at a rate of knots. He will need to address this or face an unwanted exit at the quarter-final stage.

Switzerland have covered 439.1km in the tournament so far and has maintained a passing accuracy of 88% and averaging 52% possession. The Swiss have made 156 passes into the attacking third with 75 of those in key areas. They have completed 20/74 crosses, which left them at 27%. In comparison, Spain has covered 475.8km in the first four games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 89% and averaged 68% possession. The Spanish made 288 passes into the attacking third with 145 of those in key areas. They completed 27/110 crosses, which left them at 25%.
