Switzerland and Qatar are set to face each other in a friendly meeting at the Stadio di Cornaredo in Lugano, as the hosts look to extend an impressive 11-game lossless home run.
During the last international break, the Nati have lost to Belgium on the road by two goals to one, after which they’ve defeated Iceland in the UEFA Nations League with the identical score-line. However, the Rossocrociati have lost three out of the previous five meetings across all competitions, having achieved barely one triumph in the process. Moreover, apart from a 6-0 home win over Iceland, Vladimir Petkovic’s players have failed to keep a clean sheet in the remaining seven of the last eight matches, which seems to be their critical problem. However, Switzerland have bagged at least one goal in 10 out of the past 12 encounters, notching a brace 6 times in the process.
On the other hand, the visitors have clinched three straight victories over China, Palestina, and Ecuador before suffering a 2-0 defeat to Uzbekistan. The Maroons have featured in six friendly matches in 2018, having secured four wins while playing out one draw and losing once. Additionally, the aforementioned loss was the first time Qatar failed to find the back of the net after eleven consecutive matches across all competitions. Meanwhile, they are struggling at the back, having kept a clean sheet only three times in the last 17 games. However, Felix Sanchez Bas’ players have lost two out of the previous three encounters with the European teams, with both, the Czech Republic and Lichtenstein defeating the Asian side by a narrow 1-goal margin.
