The UEFA Euro 2020 is back with another set of knock-out games this weekend as Spain lock horns with Switzerland at the Krestovsky Stadium on Friday. Both teams have been impressive this week and will need to step up in this match.
Switzerland pulled off one of the most important victories in their history as they stunned France to reach the quarterfinals. The Swiss are a robust outfit and could give their opponents a run for their money this weekend.
Spain, on the other hand, have shown tremendous improvement over the past week and have scored ten goals in their last two matches at Euro 2020. La Furia Roja have a unique blend of youth and experience and could potentially pull a few surprises this summer.

Switzerland (SUI) vs Spain (SPN) Dream11 Fantasy Suggestions
Spain's defenders have been among the goals at Euro 2020 with both Aymeric Laporte and Cesar Azpilicueta finding the back of the net over the past week. Jordi Alba was benched against Croatia and should return to the team for this match.
Switzerland have a few concerns to address at the moment and with Granit Xhaka suspended, Xherdan Shaqiri will have to bear much of the creative burden for this team. Haris Seferovic scored a brace against France and is an excellent choice going into this match.
Spain have their own prolific striker in Alvaro Morata and the Juventus man scored an exceptional goal against Croatia in extra time. Ferran Torres was virtually unplayable on the day and is a must-have in this team.
