Hungary vs Switzerland preview, ticket info, tv channel and team news

Posted by

Dominik Szoboszlai will be the man tasked with unlocking a very experienced Switzerland defence on Saturday.


The Liverpool playmaker delivered four goals and three assists in Euro 2024 qualifying. But that was against the likes of Bulgaria, Lithuania, Montenegro and Serbia.

Switzerland are expected to start two Premier League centre-backs in Manuel Akanji and Fabian Schar on Saturday, with Remo Freuler and Granit Xhaka providing extra security in midfield.

However, this Swiss side is more than just a solid defensive unit.

Xherdan Shaqiri has more than 30 international goals to his name and could form part of an unpredictable attack alongside Augsburg’s Ruben Vargas and Burnley’s Zeki Amdouni.

Also watch out for winger Noah Okafor, who could play a key role off the bench. The AC Milan ace is a master dribbler, who is known for using his fresh pace to exploit tiring defences in the later stages of games.
