Switzerland vs Ukraine Betting Odds, Preview, Prediction and Picks for the UEFA Nations League Game on Tuesday November 17th, 2020.

 

GAME FACTS

- Switzerland heads into the final week of the Group 4 match with three points and winless in five matches. However, they drew twice with Germany and took a point over Spain. His two defeats were just one goal.

- Ukraine has six points from five games after victories against Switzerland and Spain. They are three points behind first place before Tuesday's final, but cannot finish first. There is a possibility that they will finish low in Group 4 if they lose to Switzerland.

- A win for Switzerland would bring them six points closer to Ukraine and mean that their record of one against the other equates to one win each. Then it would go to the goal difference in the matches played between the two (Ukraine won the first game 2-1). If they still cannot be separated, the team with the most goals scored in the two sets will finish third. There are even more tiebreaks, if they're still tied, after that.

- Switzerland is following Ukraine ahead of Tuesday's game, but it's hard to ignore them here, especially given Ukraine's casualty list. Whether they do enough to usurp Ukraine in third place remains to be seen.

 

 

Reason for Switzerland -150

Still without a win this season in the UEFA Nations League (UNL), Switzerland (FIFA ranking: # 16) are on a relegation run with Ukraine (# 23).

Taking into account the tie-break permutations, only a victory in which Switzerland scored 2 or more goals would be sufficient, although they would need a margin of victory of 2 or more goals to survive, if Ukraine scored two goals even.

Currently, Switzerland have won only one of their last five games against Ukraine, UEFA countries that are in five positions (G1, D2, L2).

In particular, games against teams of similar caliber have been prone to quick starts, with three of those five games in which both teams scored before HT, and only one was scoreless in the interval (HT: G1, D3, L1 ).

Reason for Ukraine +400

With a COVID crisis that sent four first-team players packing for the week, visitors to Ukraine are in dire straits.

They have lost five (G1) of their last six games, although they have been largely entertaining, with goals scored in both halves of five, a total of 3.67 goals per game on average.

Ukraine have also failed to win five of their last eight games against the fifth-ranked UEFA nations of Switzerland (W3, D1, L4).

Notably, five games saw goals before HT for an average of 1.0 first-half goals per game throughout the streak, though two of the three away games ended in a two-goal loss.
