Switzerland impressed at the last Nations League, finishing top of a group that included Belgium and Iceland.
The Swiss found goals easy to come by in the group stage, putting five past Belgium and six past Iceland in their home fixtures.
However, their first match in the Nations League Finals was against eventual tournament winners Portugal, who secured a comfortable 3-1 win against the Swiss in which Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick.

Ukraine picked up three wins and one defeat from their four Group B1 games last season, claiming the top spot ahead of Czech Republic but only scored five and conceded five goals in the entire group stage. Ukraine will need to add goals to their game and maintain that strong defensive record to stand any chance of avoiding an immediate return to the Nations League B.
These two countries haven’t locked horns since 2010 when both teams looked completely different and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
Both sides are packed with international experience
The hosts have called upon the vastly experienced goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov (93 caps), main goalscoring threat Andriy Yarmolenko (86 caps), and the creative force of Yevhen Konoplyanka (85 caps) all of whom are now in their 30s but still have plenty to offer at international level.
The Swiss have an experienced spine to their starting eleven with goalkeeper Yann Sommer looking to earn his 54th senior cap, full-back Ricardo Rodriguez with 71 caps to his name, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka on 82 caps, and forward Haris Seferovic who has netted 18 goals in 64 appearances for his country.
Ukraine haven’t lost any of their last six international matches, picking up two draws with Nigeria and Serbia and securing wins home and away against Lithuania as well as home wins against Estonia and Portugal.
The Swiss have only suffered one defeat in their last six outings, going down 1-0 away at Denmark, but have beaten the likes of Gibraltar twice, Georgia, and secured a win and a draw against the Republic of Ireland.
Both teams are in good form and will be desperate to avoid defeat it what looks set to be a very tough group stage with games against Germany and Spain to come.
The visitors have only failed to score in one of their last six matches and the hosts have scored in all of their last six and we’re backing both teams to score on Thursday.
Both teams scored in each country’s last international outing back in November and three of Ukraine’s last five games also produced goals at both ends of the pitch.
