Germany has finally won the UEFA Nations League. Will Switzerland be able to take points away from Joachim Loew’s team for the second time in a row? The answer will be given by the forecast of our experts. How will the confrontation between the teams in Cologne end on October 13, 2020?
In the last UEFA Nations League, the German national team performed disgustingly. In the first group of the elite division with France and the Netherlands, the team scored only two points and deservedly settled in last place.
The Germans began the current tournament with the aim of rehabilitating themselves for past failures, and in the opening match they shared points with their direct competitor for leaving the group, Spain (1: 1). Then the wards of Johaim Lev went to Switzerland, where they also could not keep the winning score (1: 1).
Germany’s Victoria made her debut in the tournament last Saturday. While visiting the Ukrainian national team, the Germans scored three points thanks to goals from Ginter and Goretzky (2: 1). At the moment, the “Bundestim” is the second in the group, two points behind the Spaniards.
The Swiss national team was one of the highlights of the UEFA Nations League last season. Few believed that the “crusaders”, in company with Belgium and Iceland, would win a ticket to the playoffs, which provides the first place in the group.
As a result, the charges of Vladimir Petkovich scored nine points and overtook the Belgians due to a major victory in the decisive match (5: 2). At the semi-final stage, the Swiss lost to the future winners of the tournament to the Portuguese (1: 3), and in the match for third place they lost to England only in a penalty shootout (0: 1).
In the new season of the UEFA Nations League, Switzerland will fight to maintain its registration in the elite division. In the opening round, the team lost to a direct competitor in the face of Ukraine (1: 2), after which it drew at home with Germany (1: 1) and minimally lost to the Spaniards at a party (0: 1).

Joachim Löw continues to work on the rotation of his squad, looking for the best combinations of players in different zones. The coach of the German national team could afford certain experiments in the match against Ukraine, but for the upcoming match the hosts, obviously, will exhibit the most fighting composition.
Switzerland is now clearly not in those conditions and game form, which allowed the team to shoot in the last draw of the League of Nations. Taking into account the inexpressive play of the guests in the attack, we suggest taking a bet on the home win with a minimum handicap.
Our forecast is an Asian handicap (-1) for Germany for 1.77 in Marathonbet BC.
