In their second of four matches in ten days, Israel will return to play on Wednesday when they take on Switzerland in Euro 2024 qualifying. After losing in Kosovo on Sunday, Israel would find it very tough to advance automatically if they don’t win, while a victory would guarantee the Swiss a spot in the finals the following year.
Israel vs Switzerland
Israel and Switzerland, the second and third-placed teams in Group I of the EURO 2024 qualifying tournament, will play each other on neutral territory on Wednesday at Pancho Arena.
In their most recent meeting, which took place in March in Geneva, Switzerland triumphed 3:0 to take all three points.
Despite their most recent defeat to Kosovo, Israel’s dreams of making it to the European Championship for the first time since joining UEFA in 1994 remain. Due to the hostilities between Israel and Hamas, the game that was initially slated for October 15th was canceled. For Primoš Gliha’s team to maintain their hopes of qualifying, they need to defeat Switzerland this coming week.
While Israel must win to maintain their chances of qualifying for EURO 2016, Switzerland, if they win all three points on Wednesday, can qualify for the tournament for the third consecutive year. The Red Cross were held to a 3:3 tie at home against Belarus last month, despite having the lead after 26 minutes, which resulted in a humiliating international break. It was the third occasion in the previous four games that Murat Yakin’s team led but ultimately only managed a point.
Israel will be trying to extend their four-game winning streak this week after their most recent setback. They might have trouble here because they have only triumphed once in their previous six games played on foreign soil.
Switzerland has won four games and drawn three in their last seven games to go undefeated. They should win on Wednesday since they are the superior team going into the midweek match.
Although Switzerland is the clear favorite to win this game, Israel shouldn’t be taken lightly. In their last five games in this competition, the Chosen Team has only lost once, winning three and drawing one. Additionally, Alon Hazan’s team has a strong record against Switzerland, having lost just one of their previous five games.
But considering their previous defensive issues and Switzerland’s strong away results in this tournament, we think the Red Cross will be able to prevail by a slim margin.
Switzerland has scored at least twice in each of their first group I games, demonstrating their excellent scoring form throughout the 2023 qualifying campaign.
In their seven games this year, Switzerland has scored 20 goals, including a 3-0 victory against their rivals in March. The Swiss are well-suited to the neutral Hungary setting of the game, and they should be able to add a few more goals to their impressive scoring record in this match.
