Tip Reasoning

With Iceland relegated, the only thing left to sort in Group A2 of the Nations League is the winner. Will it be Belgium or Switzerland going through to the finals in 2019? As it stands, the visitors are on course for top spot, having moved three points clear of the Swiss on Thursday. The Red Devils beat Iceland 2-0 to continue their perfect start in this group, but will they be finishing up with a 100% record? They come into this game aiming to add to a brilliant campaign so far, in a tournament which could bring them silverware.

The hosts have hit their minimum aim of avoiding the drop, and they’ve put themselves in a position where a victory puts them through. Having outscored the Red Devils so far, the hosts have exceeded expectations in one department, and they’ll be looking to finish on a high. They have already confirmed a place in the top pot of seeds for the Euro 2020 qualifiers, so they aren’t likely to face a major side in the race for a place at the Championships. However, could they put themselves in the frame for glory in June?

From the start, this tournament has looked perfect for the Belgians. There were many words about building on their World Cup run back in the summer, but we all saw them having to wait two years to do it. However, as a rising power in world football, any silverware is huge for them. Any trophy would be a validation of manager Roberto Martinez, too. They aren’t going to look down at this like many superpowers of the sport, they could make a big statement by winning the Nations League. Given that drive, the competition needs them in the semi-finals almost as much as they need the trophy.

Since the start of the group, Belgium have looked like a side who are determined to win the Nations League. They’ve scored seven goals and conceded once, part of a six game unbeaten run. They exited the World Cup with a record finish and as the tournament’s top scorers, boosting their profile in the international game. They’ve risen to joint-top of the world rankings as a result, and their good form should continue here.

Since the World Cup, the Swiss have really struggled. Their 6-0 win over Iceland was a huge result, but following that they’ve lost away to England, away to Belgium and narrowly beaten Iceland again. Thursday brought a 1-0 loss to Qatar, a damning result which isn’t a good sign ahead of this meeting with Belgium. That makes it four defeats in six, while the Red Devils are moving from strength to strength. With the visitors in great form and gunning for glory, we think they’re great value to claim a win on Sunday.
