The two European countries have won their Europe-wide qualifying groups, but now the first position is just one, and it probably belongs to Brazil. Serbs and Swiss players are coming out of a direct clash to continue to the next phase of the championship, and a new success for our neighbors certainly places them.
In the following lines we will analyze the performance of both teams, we will look at their results so far and will give our bet and forecast for Serbia - Switzerland.
Serbia is the only leader in Group E after playing the first matches. The victory for our neighbors was expected, but came with a minimum of 1: 0 over Costa Rica. In the other clash, Brazil and Switzerland stood against each other and the points were equalized by 1: 1. Wines for this may be cast on the disputed equalizing goal of the Swiss, but the winning point for them was deserved.
The Serbia coach has great players in every line of the game. His graduates showed more class action than their Costa Rican opponents and deservedly achieved a minimal success by 1: 0. A great free kick by Aleksandar Kolarov after 56 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but the finish was just wide. Besides the goal, the Serbs had a few more good positions against the opposing goalkeeper, but Mitrovic and Sergey-Milenkovic Savic missed the scoring.
In defense, our neighbors were stable and the only worse offense was the start of the match when a Costa Rican player was forgotten on the back beam. The Serbs provided possession of the Costa Rican ball in a short period of the match and after the goal was scored. This, however, did not lead to dangers for Stojkovic, and Serb defenders acted calmly and securely.
Switzerland achieved nine victories in the Europa League qualifying, rising to number six in the FIFA rankings but the team was again underestimated against Brazil. This was due to the names of opponents in the past qualifying group, but here the Swiss played decent against the five-time world champions.
Periods in which the team was rewarded were to Brazil's first goal and the final 20 minutes of the match. Many speak of the poor play in the attack of Neimar and Gabriel Jezeus, but this is due to a good defense performance for the Swiss team. "Crusaders" did not impress an attack, but showed they could safely play the ball against Brazil's famous midfield line.

"White Eagles" not without question won the qualifying group D in the European qualification. Ireland ahead of only two points, but have achieved a good goal difference (10).
Preparation was smooth, except for lost matches against Morocco (1: 2) and Chile (0: 1). However, opponents in friendly matches were not extra- and even not just average. Only the South Korean team can be attributed to more or less serious teams.
In four of the last five fights, the "Crusaders" did not get into the opponent's goal frame more than twice per game. However, the Swiss can also defend themselves. For the selection, they missed seven goals, but the number of accurate strikes from opponents was usually not more than 30%.
Perhaps, this is what prevented the Serbian national team from showing the level in the first match of the world championship against Costa Rica. Despite the victory 1: 0, Mladen Krstajic's wards can not bring this match to themselves in the asset: half of the blows were due to the penalty, and only 30% of the shots hit the target.
Switzerland, on the contrary, may well consider the game against the Brazilians successful. Note: not successful, namely successful. Because almost the whole game the "Crusaders" spent in their half of the field.
