Serbia vs Switzerland match preview

Group E continues on Friday night as Serbia take on Switzerland at the Kaliningrad Stadium.

Vladimir Petkovic’s Serbia side begin the day as Group E leaders following their 1-0 win over Costa Rica last week.

Former Manchester City full-back Aleksander Kolarov converted a free-kick to give Serbia the win.

Switzerland came from behind to draw 1-1 with Brazil in Rostov-on-Don on Sunday night.

Steven Zuber’s second-half goal cancelled out Coutinho’s opener. Goalkeeper Yann Sommer also played a starring role to deny Brazil a winner.

A win for Serbia would see them confirm their spot in the round of 16.

Serbia and Switzerland have never faced each other in international football.

Brazil face Costa Rica earlier in the day in Group E’s other match.

Serbia team news vs Switzerland

Mladen Krstajic has a fully fit squad to choose from. With no injuries, Serbia could field the same side which beat Costa Rica.

Filip Kostic, who made an appearance off the bench in Serbia’s opener, is the most likely to come into the eleven should Krstajic want some fresh legs.

Switzerland team news vs Serbia

Valon Behrami, competing at his fourth World Cup finals, is a minor doubt after suffering a knock against Brazil. The midfielder is still expected to be fine for Friday.

Like Serbia, Switzerland could very well name the same eleven that faced Brazil.
