Georgia and Switzerland go head-to-head for the opening game of Group D of the European Championship qualifiers.
The hosts seem to be going through a purple patch having finished top of their respective UEFA Nations League (UNL) group, without suffering a single defeat in six competitive outings (W5, D1). Although they’ve sustained a disappointing 1-0 loss to Luxemburg in the build-up to their UNL journey, Vladimír Weiss’s men have been outstanding during the competition, scoring 12 goals while conceding just two in the process. What’s more, Georgia have put together six successive home triumphs, with five of those wins saw them beating their rivals to nil. The Crusaders now chase their elusive first win over Switzerland in the 21st century in their third H2H meeting (D1, L1) in the new millenium.
After concluding their World Cup participation in the round of 16, the Nati have endured mixed fortunes in the post-World Cup period, securing three wins in six games (W3, L3). However, all three of those victories have come in competitive meetings. The visitors have pulled off an outstanding 5-2 victory over Belgium to finish top of their respective UEFA Nations League group. The winners of Group A/2 have finished the competition with a record of three wins and a loss and +9 goal difference (S14, C5). Still, Vladimir Petkovic’s main concern ahead of this fixture is that his players have failed to preserve a clean slate in their last five games, allowing 2+ match goals twice along the way.
