Turning their attention back to Nations League duties on Saturday night, Spain will be looking to maintain their stellar record on home soil when they welcome Switzerland to Madrid this weekend.

Making a host of alternations when they made the trip to Portugal for a friendly showdown earlier in the week, the former world champions had to settle for a 0-0 stalemate, despite creating a string of chances.

However, while Spain were last seen on Nations League duties picking up a 4-0 romp against Ukraine last month, Switzerland have struggled to find their best form since opening 2020.

Throwing away the lead and hit with a 2-1 defeat against an inconsistent Croatia on home soil on Wednesday night, the Reds have failed to win any of their last three matchups across all formats.

However, while they might be a real underdog with the bookmakers on Saturday night, Switzerland do hold a shocking record against Spain over the past decade.

Unbeaten in back-to-back meetings against the European giants, collecting one draw and one defeat, you might be interested to know a surprise Switzerland double chance can be found priced at 2/1 with Bet365.

Spain’s defensive resolve

While Spain’s altered squad would have been disappointed to have eventually had to settle for a 0-0 stalemate away at defending Nations League champions Portugal in a friendly contest earlier in the week, La Roja have impressed since Luis Enrique returned to his role as Head Coach.

Coming from behind and opening this year’s tournament with a 1-1 draw away at fellow former world champions Germany last month, the Reds stormed their way to next year’s European Championships and have impressed many with their recent performances at the back.

Limiting Portugal to just a single shot on target on foreign in midweek, Saturday’s hosts have conceded just a single strike in their last five matchups across all formats after signing off their qualifying campaign with a 5-0 romp against Romania last year.

Even more impressive, the former Barcelona boss has also seen his side record five clean sheets on home soil on the bounce, a run that stems all the way back to March 2019.

Switzerland’s away day issues

While Switzerland might have taken a 1-0 lead against 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia in a friendly showdown earlier in the week, they once again couldn’t hold onto their lead and a 2-1 defeat in St. Gallen summed up what has been a lacklustre 2020 run.

Although Head Coach Vladimir Petković might have seen his side manage to salvage a point against Germany on home soil last month, Rossocrociati opened this year’s Nations League with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Ukraine.

Failing to win any of their three matchups since opening the New Year, Switzerland also have a real reputation for their issues on the road.

Including that defeat away in Kyiv on September 3rd, Saturday’s guests have managed to win just one of their last five contests on foreign soil, a run that has seen them drop points away at the likes of Denmark and Ireland.

With that sole victory coming against Gibraltar last year and managing to muster just a single away clean sheet since March 2018, you might be interested to know that Switzerland can be found priced at 1/2 with Bet365 to ship over 1.5 goals this weekend.
