On Saturday, March 25, 2023 the Belarus national team will compete against the Switzerland team in the Euro 2024 Qualification. Belarus vs Switzerland live streaming, preview and how to watch it can be seen in this article.
Belarus and Switzerland started their campaign in the first round of Euro 2024 qualifying Group I on Saturday evening, 25 March 2023 at the Karađorđe stadium, Novi Sad. The group also includes Andorra, Israel, Kosovo and Romania.
This will be their fourth meeting overall. In the three previous meetings, Switzerland won continuously! So no surprises here as Switzerland are the clear favorites in the head-to-head tie. Their last match was played on 1 June 2017, and ended in a narrow 1-0 for Switzerland thanks to a goal from Xherdan Shaqiri.
Belarus actually has a pretty good team. They are in second place in the 2022 World Cup qualifying group, losing only one point to super strong Belgium. They also managed to beat Wales 2-1 in September last year, even though Wales had Gareth Bale. They also beat Estonia and Belarus by the same score.
Meanwhile Switzerland also had an impressive run at Euro 2020, where they reached the quarter-finals after eliminating world champions France via penalties. They eventually lost to Spain by the same score after extra time.
Belarus and Switzerland have different playing styles, with Belarus relying more on solid defense and quick counterattacks, while Switzerland prefers to have the ball and create chances from the flanks. Both teams have quality players on every front, but Switzerland have the upper hand in terms of experience and squad depth.
Welcoming a much stronger, coach of the Belarus national team, Mikhail Markhel has prepared his troops. One of his mainstays is Vitali Lisakovich. The 25-year-old has scored three goals in four qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup so far. According to FIFA.com, Vitaly Mikhaylovich now plays for FC Rubin Kazan in the Russian Premier League.
On the other hand, Switzerland, which has a myriad of reliable players, will still be hoping for their star Xherdan Shaqiri. Coach Murat Yakin needs a creative and dangerous midfield mover who can score goals and provide assists. Once at Liverpool, Shaqiri now plays for Chicago Fire FC, Major League Soccer in the United States.
