Match in Focus


Switzerland v Qatar

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • The Swiss are unbeaten in 11 matches on home soil
Expert verdict
Switzerland hammered Iceland 6-0 in their last home game and should have no problems in this friendly against Qatar. The visitors failed to make the World Cup, finishing bottom of their third-round qualifying group in Asia, and lost 2-0 away to Uzbekistan in a friendly in October.
