The UEFA Nations League returns to the fold with another round of matches this week as Switzerland take on Czech Republic on Tuesday.
Both teams can pack a punch on their day and will be determined to win this game.
Switzerland are currently in third place in Group 2 of the UEFA Nations League standings and will be intent on keeping their place in League A. The Swiss side stunned Spain with a 2-1 victory over the weekend and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Czech Republic, on the other hand, are at the bottom of their group at the moment and could suffer relegation this year. The Czechs slumped to a 4-0 defeat against Portugal in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.
Switzerland vs Czech Republic Head-to-Head
Czech Republic have a flawless record against Switzerland and have won both the matches that have been played between the two teams. Switzerland have yet to defeat the Czech Republic in an official fixture and will look to create history on Tuesday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in June this year and ended in a 2-1 victory for the Czech Republic. Switzerland were in poor shape on the day and have a point to prove this week.
