Switzerland v Ireland betting preview
Switzerland have taken only one win in their last six games and that was at home against GibraltarSwitzerland are currently third in the Group D, four points out of the top two, but they have assured a place in the playoffs through their efforts of getting into the semi-finals in this summer's UEFA Nations League. Only an inspired 90 minutes from Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel kept the Swiss at bay in Copenhagen on Saturday as they suffered a 1-0 loss in Copenhagen. That defeat ended a run of six-games unbeaten in qualifying for the European Championships. Last month, the reverse match in Ireland ended with a 1-1 draw.
Kevin Mbabu may come back into the team in place of Stephan Lichtsteiner, while Remo Freuler is also pushing for a recall. Haris Seferovic is expected to lead the line, supported by Admir Mehmedi and Breel Embolo in a 3-4-2-1 system. The likes of Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji and Nico Elvedi will form the three man backline while Denis Zakaria will partner Arsenal's midfielder Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park. AC Milan's Ricardo Rodriguez will start as wing back on the left side while Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri remains sidelined.
The Republic of Ireland are unbeaten in the last 9 outingsIreland are level on 12 points from 6 games with runners up Denmark and will battle to continue their unbeaten run. Anyway, after their slightly disappointing draw away in Georgia (0-0), they will know a defeat against Switzerland will deal an almighty blow to their Euro 2020 qualification hopes while a victory will be enough to earn a top-two spot in Group D. Given the scenarios which remain for each nation, it is likely that Republic of Ireland will have to record maximum points from one of their last two fixtures, the latter being at home to Denmark. Under Mick McCarthy, the side have now gone nine games unbeaten both in qualification and in friendlies. The Boys in Green are lacking in goalscoring power but their defence continues to stand strong, with the Irish having conceded only two goals in this Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
Manager Mick McCarthy could opt to select the same starting XI with Callum Robinson reverting his role to a central striker, replacing James Collins. Aaron Connolly, who made his international debut at the weekend, is expected to play at some stage during the second half. If that proves to be the case, either Alan Browne or Callum O'Dowda could come into contention for a starting position. Enda Stevens is back available following a suspension and could replace Matt Doherty in the starting XI. David McGoldrick has not travelled with the team.
