World Cup

Serbia v Switzerland – what the stats say

Serbia and Switzerland met in the 2018 Fifa World Cup. The Swiss came from behind to win 2-1, with Xherdan Shaqiri netting a 90th-minute winning goal.

In each of their previous three Fifa World Cup appearances as an independent country, Serbia lost its final group stage match, surrendering at least twice.

A victory for Switzerland will ensure their spot in the World Cup’s knockout rounds. In any of their previous four appearances, they have never lost their final group game.

Switzerland is attempting to avoid losing two straight World Cup games for the first time since 1994, losing to Colombia and Spain, following a 1-0 loss to Brazil on MD2.

The last time Serbia played (W2 L8), they drew their first World Cup game, drawing 3-3 with Cameroon. This was the first time Serbia had ever scored three goals in a game.

Even though they recently fell 1-0 to Brazil, Switzerland has only lost four of their last 17 World Cup group stage games (W8 D5). Since 1966, they haven’t dropped more than one group match in a competition.

In their 1-0 loss to Brazil on MD2, Switzerland managed just one shot on goal in the first half. Five of their six attempts came in the second half. In the first half of games during the opening two games of the 2022 World Cup, only three teams had fewer shots than the Swiss.

The only player to have scored more than one World Cup goal for Serbia is Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has seven goals in his last six appearances for the nation in all competitions.

At the 2022 World Cup, only Manuel Akanji (124) and Nico Elvedi, a central defensive pair for Switzerland, completed 100+ passes. They’ve also passed to one another 46 times, which is more than any other pair of Swiss outfielders.

In his last eight games for Serbia in all competitions, Dusan Tadic has contributed to eight goals, including an assist in the most recent matchup between Serbia and Cameroon.
