Preview: Switzerland vs Ireland
Currently in third spot, but with a game in hand, Switzerland will be hoping to put themselves in contention for a spot at EURO 2020 as they host Ireland. La Nati haven't beaten the Boys in Green since 2003, and although the visitors haven't been exactly setting the pitch alight, with a measly six goals scored so far, they are still getting the job done with a formidable defense that has seen them concede just twice in qualifying.
Ireland come into this game off the back of a dull scoreless stalemate against minnows Georgia, but they'll be happy with that result as it keeps them in the running for a spot at EURO 2020. Alongside Denmark, Mick McCarthy's side are the only team in this group who have yet to lose a game, and they are actually unbeaten in their last eight European qualifying matches (nine across all comps).
That being said, they have actually won just two of their last eight games on the road, but are still unbeaten in their last four away fixtures in qualifying, with three draws and one victory from those matches. Switzerland will certainly find Ireland very tough to break down as they have clearly built their success off defending, and the fact that La Nati have won just one of their last six matches - against floundering minnows Gibraltar - could make this a very closely-fought and tough affair.
