It’s a special day for both teams when on the 11th of June at 3 o’clock surprise team Albania meets Switzerland. In this match two brothers will meet on the playfield, Granit Xhaka who plays for Switzerland and Taulant Xhaka who plays for Albania. The Arsenal player and his team are the clear favourites in this match.
Current performance of Albania
The cheering has been big all over the country when it finally has been fixed that Albania is qualified for the EURO 2016. The father of this success is the Italian Trainer Giovani de Biasi he was able to finish the qualification group 1 with his team on the second position after Portugal. The even have beaten stronger teams like Serbia and Denmark. A good sign for the competition is that they have beaten France as guests with a score of 1:0 in June 2015. At the friendly matches one match against Georgia ended in a drawn with a score of 2:2 followed by a defeat against Austria with a score of 1:2 in March 2016. However they have been able lately to celebrate a victory against Luxembourg with a score of 2:0 and also against Qatar with a score of 3:1. Some of the main players haven’t played in these matches. One of the top players in this team is the defence player Elseid Hysaj from Lazio Rom. The 19 year old player Milot Rashika could become a rising star in this competition. He is traded as one of the biggest talents at the European soccer. At first he has to come through the final cut of the coach. It is definitely possible that they will ensure a surprise against Switzerland.
Current performance of Switzerland
On the contrary to their rival Albania, Switzerland has a lot of competition experience. They nearly have become a regular guest at the end rounds. Only at the last EURO 2012 they have been just members of the audience. However they have already a routine and this could be a little advantage at the first match for the team of Trainer Vladimir Petkovic. In addition the team has individual characters like keeper Roman Bürki (Dortmund) and Yann Sommer (Gladbach) or also top defender Riccardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg) and Neo-Arsenal-player Granit Xhaka. The latest results of the test matches could have been better. Even when they have shown a strong performance against Belgium they have lost the match with a score of 1:2 as well as the match against Bosnia (0:2) and Ireland (0:1). Trainer Petkovic is also a little bit undisputed insight the team which also has been recognized by the Swiss media. This leads to a tense atmosphere. He would prove everyone wrong if they would win their first match against Albania.
Betting tip for this match
