Switzerland is close to a direct ranking for the 2022 World Cup, which can support the barrage European Championship Italy. For this to happen, Murat Yakin’s team must succeed against Bulgaria, melting the lead of two goals by the Italians, who will play on it. In a conversation with colleagues from the Swiss “Blick” it became clear that the “watchmakers” are talking about the head of the fiesta against the “lions”. Here is what the Swiss journalist Marco Peschio told Sportal.bg:
Despodov trains separately from the main group
“Monday will be a big match for Switzerland! The whole will be better than Italy – it means that we have to enter Bulgaria, and that’s a lot of heads! The national team wants first place in the group, which is better and the tension.
We have some difficulties with the team, because Jaka, Embolo, Zuber, Elvedi, Seferovic, Fasnacht are out. Everyone. Ricardo Rodriguez is now injured and Manuel Acangi will not be able to win yellow cards. So our best duo in defense – Akanji and Elvedi, will miss the match with Bulgaria.
Georgi Kostadinov: We have to help ourselves
What do we know about Bulgarian football? In our country I am a football expert in the person of the former Bulgarian national Petar Alexandrov – now he is the coach of the strikers in Aarau. We also know CSKA, the opponent of Basel from last season, who recorded a victory in the playoffs of the Europa League. It was a heavy loss for Basel.
