Serbia vs Switzerland : Team News, Preview, Probable Line Up, Betting Odds and TV Guide

Nemanja Matic and Aleksander Kolarov will be key to success for Serbia.


The World Cup 2018 has been one full of upsets and surprises with the so called big teams failing to live up to their expectations. The Group E has been interestingly poised with Switzerland stopping the mighty Brazilians to shake up things. They will be taking on a very talented Serbian side in their Group E encounter tonight in the 3rd of the day’s fixtures.

In the first round match, Serbia defeated a very stubborn Costa Rica on their return to the World stage via a brilliant Aleksandar Kolarov free kick. The match ended with that solitary goal from the skipper. After Costa Rica’s second defeat in the campaign, Serbia now need a victory to progress to the next round.

On the contrary, Switzerland will be in a tough spot to qualify if they lose this game. Their form will be in their favour though. The Swiss army showed great resolve to come from behind to hold a lackluster Brazil in their opener. All in all, it should be very evenly contested match when the two sides meet tonight.
