Martinez expects tough game from Switzerland

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.
