Spain will clash heads with Switzerland at Estadio La Romareda on Saturday night, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The hosts will be coming into the match on the back of a 2-0 win against the Czech Republic, whereas the visitors recorded an encouraging 1-0 victory over Portugal on matchday 4 of the UEFA Champions League campaign.
Luis Enrique will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation; however, he is expected to make a couple of changes for the upcoming clash as Ferran Torres looks likely to get the nod over Dani Olmo.
4-3-3 Spain Predicted Lineup Vs Switzerland
Unai Simon is expected to start in goal for the upcoming home encounter. The Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.
Eric Garcia and Paul Torres might form the customary centre-half partnership at the heart of Spain’s backline as they look to prevent Murat Yakin’s men from finding the back of the net throughout the 90 minutes.
Full-backs Dani Carvajal and Jordi Alba will continue to operate down the right and left-hand sides, respectively.
Koke, Sergio Busquets and Gavi will slot in as the holding midfielders; however, the latter could be assigned with more of a central role as his ball distribution could turn out to be decisive if the Spaniards wish to dominate things at the centre of the park.
Pedri will have to settle for a place on the bench but might be called on in the latter stages of the game if needed.
Ferran Torres, Alvaro Morata and Pablo Sarabia will form the attacking trio at the top of the pitch.
The trio will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net when they face off against the Switzerland defence that has conceded seven goals in their last four matches in the competition.
