Match in Focus


Switzerland v Ireland

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Switzerland haven’t lost a competitive home match since 2014 – a run stretching 14 games
Expert verdict
Ireland will need to sharpen up in attack to take a positive result from their pivotal Euro 2020 qualification clash against Switzerland in Geneva. Ireland missed a huge chance to cement their place in Group D’s top two after a dour 0-0 draw against Georgia on Saturday, though one more victory from their remaining pair of fixtures will still see them qualify for next year’s showpiece. Switzerland have little to fear from the Irish frontline and should harness the energy of their buoyant support to break down the visitors.
