SUI Vs SPA Fantasy Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Top and bottom meet in a lopsided affair as Spain scour for salvation today.
Cantering their way into top spot in Group 4 of League A of the UEFA Nations League 2020-21, not even the biggest naysayers of Spain would have envisioned their unbeaten run being brought to thudding end by Ukraine.
In what was one of the most unprecedented results in the showpiece tournament in the bygone round, Spain were not only downed 1-0 by Ukraine but wiped the floor with on the day. In one of their worst performances in the last few years, the group leaders were dominated from minute one to last, a showing the club will be hungry to turnaround.
Its this narrative which doesn’t augur well for bottom placed Switzerland. While they managed to accrue an unlikely draw against Germany the last time around, the country will not have things as easy today given the beleaguered mood the Spanish side are set to come bearing in this contest.
Switzerland ended up shipping three to Germany the last time around, a backline which has time and time again let the team down in the competition. And it will be the reason for their defeat today as well with the country unable to spurn Spain from scoring the all important goals.

SUI Vs SPA Fantasy Team Picks
Time and time again, Yans Sommer has emerged as the saviour of this Swiss side. He was at it once again when the side took on Germany, ensuring his side were able to return in the encounter as he banished everything the Germans threw at it.
They conceded a shock goal to Ukraine the last time around but otherwise, Spain have been largely impeccable and immaculate defensively. The country has let in a measly two goals in four matches, a period which also sees the side induct in place two cleansheets.
This resilient and staunch brand of defending meant we were also going to rope in a string of players from Spain’s side for this contest. We begin with captain Sergio Ramos who has scored the two goals to see him emerge as the side’s top scorer.
Sergio Reguilon and Pau Torres link up with him, names who will sweep Switzerland under a mat today.
Given the injuries to have hit this Spain side, both Dani Olmo and Mikel Merino will hold crucial roles in the club’s gameplan today. With the one assist apiece for either of them, the two have shown that they are players capable of spurring the side’s attacking plays.
Granit Xhaka’s one assist sees us move in for him from Switzerland with the versatile and imperious Remo Freuler linking up with him.
Ferran Torres is yet to really hit the ground running this season but he’s coming into his own with each passing affair. A player who has managed to shun his howler of a form across the course of the last month is striker Alvaro Morata with his goals in the Serie A set to earn him a Spain recall today.
The opposition will see us move for the services of their top scorer with the two goals, Haris Seferovic.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The two goals for Ramos will see him captain our team for today while Alvaro is the vice-captain.
Yans, Ramos, Torres, Sergio, Remo, Granit, Olmo, Merino, Alvaro, Haris, Ferran
