Switzerland face Poland in the first match of round of 16. The match is taking place at Stade Geoffrey-Richard in Saint-Etienne on Saturday, June 25th.
Switzerland didn’t have much troubles to qualifying for the knockout stage, gaining five points after 1-0 win over Albania, and drawing two matches against Romania, 1-1 and France, 0-0. Such results got the team the second place in the group with only one goal conceded from the penalty kick. At the same time, the team failed to fulfill their potential and we should expect Saquiri, Mehmedi and their teammates to show much more in playoffs.

Poland also had no difficulties with advancing for the playoffs, gaining seven points in three matches. The White and Red defeated 1-0 Northern Ireland and Ukraine and drew clash with competition favorites Germany. Such result put the team also on the second position in their group behind the world champions. The key to success of Adam Navalka’s team was their exceptional play in defense as they haven’t allowed a single goal so far. On the other end of the field Poland can count on skills of their leaders Lewandowski, Milik and Blaszczykowski.
The opponents have met four times in their history. Three of this matches were won by Poland and the last head-to-head between the opponents ended with 2-2 draw. Both teams show excellent defensive football at the competition while their offensive lines combined four goals in six matches. It gives us the group to expect quite low-scoring result in this match as neither of teams should score over 1 goal.
Prediction for the match: Both teams under 1.5 goals.
