Serbia take on Switzerland at Stadium 974 in their third match at the World Cup. The last game of the group stage takes place on Friday.

Serbia have one point as number four after the first two rounds of group games, with Switzerland ranked as number two with three points. Serbia are looking ahead to their forthcoming match as number 21, whilst Switzerland are number 15 in the FIFA world ranking.

Whilst outsiders to go beyond the group, Serbia will, of course, be looking to cause a surprise and grab a place in the knock-out round. Seeing them go even further, though, would be a serious surprise.

Few people expect Switzerland to be challenging for the title, but with the right amount of luck, they have enough spunk to squeeze into the next round.

Serbia vs Switzerland Prediction

Serbia Form

In has been a bit of everything for Serbia in their previous three matches, where they first beat Norway by 0-2. This was followed by a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Brazil, before an encounter with Cameroon produced a 3-3 draw. Serbia claimed five wins in their last 10 matches across all tournaments, while also drawing two along the way. They endured three defeats in this run.

Serbia scored 2.1 goals on average in their past ten matches, hitting the target 21 times. They conceded 14 goals, an average of 1.4 and pulled off two clean sheets.

Switzerland Form

It is all or nothing with Switzerland, who only triumphed once in their previous three outings. They were defeated 0-2 against Ghana, before beating Cameroon 1-0. Unable to build on that, they lost 1-0 against Brazil. Switzerland claimed four wins in their last 10 matches across all tournaments, while also drawing one along the way. They endured defeat in five of the games in this run.

Switzerland scored eight goals, conceded 13 and kept their opponents from scoring two times in ten matches.

Tournament Overview

Serbia have only one point to show for their efforts in their first two group matches, which is not great. At least they are still in with a chance of going through, but only if they win this final group match. Switzerland are still optimistic of getting through to the next stage after picking up three points from their first two outings. A second win in the World Cup tournament would see them reach the knockout stage.
