Andorra vs Switzerland: Preview and Prediction
Andorra vs Switzerland
European Qualifiers – 2018 World Cup
Date: Monday, 10th October 2016
Kick-off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadi Nacional, Andorra la Vella.
Switzerland have done themselves good in this campaign so far, winning 2 games from 2. They have defeated Portugal and Hungary in their first 2 games, now they will travel to Estadi Nacional to Andorra on Monday night.
Switzerland have racked up 6 points from their first 2 games to keep them top of the group B table. Their 2-3 away win against Hungary on Friday showed how much they have improved recently. Goals from Seferovic, R. Rodriguez and V. Stocker handed the Swiss side victory while Szalai’s brace pulled two goals back for Hungry but it wasn’t enough for the equalizer. The Swiss side will hope to continue their excellent campaign with a win in this game.
Meanwhile, Andorra was sent to the bottom of the group by Cristiano Ronaldo and his cohorts on Friday night as they beat them 6-0. Andorra have been so poor recently, and the Friday game reflected their poor form, showing how weak they are defensively. They need to look into their defense and also create scoring opportunities if they hope to get something out of this game.

Andorra vs Switzerland: Prediction
Switzerland are huge favourites in this fixture, they have been in a good form recently.
Switzerland are on an excellent form since the end of Euro Championship, they have won the 2 games played so far. They have lost just once in their last 5 games which extended to the Euro tournament, they have won twice and drawn twice.
Andorra despite playing at home soil are the under dogs in this fixture, they are currently on a win-less streak. They have lost 4 of their last 5 games and drawn 1, Also Andorra have failed to score in their last 5 games. Andorra have conceded a total of 10 goals in their last 5 games.
Switzerland have all it takes to go home with 3 points in this game and I expect a clean sheet from the Swiss team.
