Switzerland Vs Spain: Confirmed Lineups Are Out

Switzerland will take on Spain in St Petersburg in the first quarter-final tie this evening (Friday) for a place in the UEFA Euro 2020 semi-finals.

Switzerland produced THE shock result of UEFA Euro 2020 so far, as they came from two goals down to beat France on penalties after their Round of 16 tie had ended in a 3-3 draw.

Having only made it to the first knockout round with a win over Turkey on Matchday 3 of the group stage, the result against Les Bleus definitely came as a huge surprise.

Spain, on the other hand, also saw their game go right down to the deep end, as they needed extra time to get the better of Croatia, with the pulsating encounter ending in a 5-3 win for them.

The last two performances have been quite promising on the offensive front, although defensively, they did leave a lot to be desired during Croatia’s late onslaught.

Otherwise, Spain have been quite solid at the back.

Switzerland Vs Spain Lineup

Switzerland XI (3-4-1-2): Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodríguez, Widmer, Freuler, Zakaria, Zuber, Shaqiri, Embolo, Seferović

Spain XI (4-3-3): Simón, Azpilicueta, Laporte, Torres, Alba, Koke, Busquets, Pedri, Torres, Morata, Sarabia
