One of the three countries that went undefeated in the opening window of UNL action was Spain. After opening their 2022-23 campaign with a pair of draws, the Spanish team posted victories over Switzerland and the Czech Republic, finishing with eight points from their first four matches, scoring six goals in that span, not allowing a goal in their two victories

The Swiss enter Saturday at the bottom of A2, although they picked up a win in the first set of matches in June, with an impressive 1-0 result against Portugal in the final match before half-time. However, Switzerland have only two goals so far and are all but eliminated from knockout stage contention.

Spain won the first meeting in June, beating Switzerland 2-0, and is 18-1-5 all-time against Switzerland since 1925.

That Portugal loss hurt their chances of going into the break with the group lead. Instead, they trail Spain by just one point, as they are 2-1-1 going into Matchday 5. Portugal’s two wins came against the aforementioned Swiss team, as well as the Czechs. Their offense has been solid, scoring seven goals in the first three matches before Switzerland held them scoreless.

The Czechs are definitely not out of the game, but they will need help if they want to have a chance in the semi-finals. They are third in the group with four points, thanks to a victory over Switzerland and a draw with the Spanish team. However, they lost their last two games before the break, and failed to score in both.

This will be only the fifth all-time meeting between the two countries, with Portugal going 3-1-0 against the Czechs, with victories also at Euro 2008 and 2012.

If Spain were to win and Portugal lose to the Czechs, Spain would reach the Nations League semi-finals for the second time in the tournament’s short history.
