Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has revealed he is expecting a tough game from Switzerland on Sunday.
The Red Devils travel to face the Swiss team in their final game of the UEFA Nations League after a hard-fought 2-0 win over Iceland on Thursday night.
Roberto Martinez’s men struggled to break down the already relegated Iceland despite fielding a strong starting lineup for what was essentially a needless game with the result not affecting either side’s standing in Group 2 of League A.
A 2-1 win over Switzerland for Belgium in October put the Belgians in the driving seat to advance, but Martinez anticipates tougher test against Vladimir Petkovic’s side.
“I expect a very difficult game,” he said, according to FourFourTwo.
“The game we had in Brussels showed that Switzerland are a very strong group that have been together for a very long time.”
“They are a very strong tactical team that use the players in their best system.”
“They are playing at home, they have really good momentum in the Nations League. It is a game we are really looking forward to.”
“We expect the same level of performance as in the Brussels game.”
