Switzerland vs Andorra: Head to head statistics
Switzerland vs Andorra recommended bets
Switzerland vs Andorra match preview
Having thrown away points in both of their last two outings, can Switzerland get back to winning ways in Sion?
On Saturday, despite leading not once but twice in Pristina, the Rossocrociati were held to a 2-2 draw by Kosovo, conceding a 94th minute equaliser.
That actually made it back-to-back 2-2 draws for Murat Yakın’s team, following a complete collapse against Romania in June, in which the Swiss conceded twice in stoppage time, having been two up at Swissporarena.
Despite all of this, Switzerland do remain top of Group I, two points clear of Romania and three better off than Israel.
Given that they still have to visit Tel Aviv next month and then București on the final matchday, the group leaders will be desperate not to slip-up here.
This does seem unlikely, given that Andorra are rock bottom of the table, yet to pick up a victory.
Koldo Álvarez’s side did yield just their second point of this campaign at the weekend, holding Belarus to a goalless stalemate at Estadi Nacional.
The Tricolours previously left Kosovo with a 1-1 draw in March, courtesy of Albert Rosas’ equaliser at Fadil Vokrri Stadium.
Nevertheless, Andorra have now won just four of their last 30 competitive outings, these victories coming over Liechtenstein and San Marino.
Switzerland won their last outing at Stade Tourbillon in 2019, swatting aside Gibraltar 4-0, with a similar scoreline expected here too.
Switzerland team news
Zeki Amdouni was the match-winner when his team visited Andorra la Vella in June, one of five goals he’s already scored in this campaign.
Both Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri could overtake Switzerland’s all-time record appearance holder Heinz Hermann by the end of this year.
Andorra team news
Captain Ildefons Lima came off the bench at the weekend, winning his 136th and, potentially, final cap for the national team.
The centre-back is 43 years old, making him the oldest player to ever feature in a European qualifier, enjoying the longest international career of any man from any nation, having made his senior debut back in June 1997.
