Switzerland vs Romania: Head to head statistics



Switzerland vs Romania match preview

Will Switzerland pull clear at the top of Group I by maintaining their 100% record in Euro 2024 qualifying?

On Friday night, Rossocrociati battled to 2-1 victory in Andorra la Vella, with Remo Freuler and Zeki Amdouni on target in a win that was far more straight-forward than the scoreline would suggest.

This makes it three wins out of three for Murat Yakın’s team, following a 5-0 victory over Belarus and then a 3-0 win against Israel back in March.

The Swiss were always likely to cruise through this group, given that they’ve appeared at nine of ten World Cups and Euros since 2002, the sole exception being Euro 2012.

Even with over half the campaign to go, another win here would leave Switzerland in a commanding position.

That’s because Romania kick off in second place, and are many people’s favourites to join the Swiss in claiming automatic qualification.

Although, the Tricolorii did slip-up on Friday night, only managing a goalless draw with Kosovo in Pristina.

Romania are aiming to reach a first major tournament since 2016, with Israel the team most-likely to rival them for second spot.

Those two will meet in București in September and in Jerusalem in November, with those head-to-head meetings likely to prove decisive.

Anything Romania yield from this trip to Swissporarena will be seen as a major bonus.

Switzerland team news

Gregor Kobel will be hoping for another opportunity in goal as he continues his bid to take over from long-standing number on Yann Sommer.

Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri have 227 caps between them, and both remain key figures.

Of the team that started for the Swiss against Romania at Euro 2016, only Ricardo Rodríguez, Xhaka and Shaqiri started in Andorra on Friday.

Romania team news

Ianis Hagi came off the bench in Kosovo on Friday, his first international appearance since November 2021 due to a long-term knee injury.

George Pușcaș and Dennis Man will be their main goal-threats from the start.
