UEFA Nations League Live: Dream11 Prediction for Switzerland vs Spain @ 1.15 AM IST live streaming on Sony Sports on 15th November, 2020.
Spain coach Luis Enrique recalled Juventus striker Álvaro Morata on Friday for upcoming Nations League matches against Germany and Switzerland in hopes of getting more out of his attack. Last month, Spain struggled with just one goal in three matches: a 0-0 draw with Portugal in a friendly, a 1-0 win over Switzerland and a 1-0 loss at Ukraine in two Nations League games.
Atlético Madrid’s Marcos Llorente, who has become an attacking option for his club, may join Morata up front after earning his first call-up to the national squad.
Spain visits the Netherlands in a friendly on Wednesday to warm up for two Nations League matches at Switzerland on Nov. 14 and against Germany on Nov. 17.

Morata has scored six goals in seven matches for Juventus after starting his second stint at the Italian champions. He transferred from Atlético in the summer. His last appearance for Spain was a year ago.
“Morata is a different player since his return to Juventus, both in his confidence and goals,” Luis Enrique said. “From afar, I believe this new version he is showing is superior.”
Arsenal playmaker Dani Ceballos was dropped from the team after Atlético midfielder Jorge “Koke” Resurrección was brought back after a two-year absence.
Switzerland vs Spain Predicted Playing XIs
Spain: David De Gea, Dani Carvajal, Jesus Navas, Sergio Ramos, SergioReguilon, Dani Ceballos, Ferran Torres, Sergio Busquets, Ansu Fati, Gerard Moreno, Rodrigo Moreno.
Switzerland: Yann Sommer, Kevin Mbabu, Silvan Widmer, Nico Elvedi, Manuel Akanji, Michel Aebischer, Granit Xhaka, Breel Embolo, Haris Seferovic, Ruben Vargas, Christian Fassnacht.
As they stand
• Switzerland are at the foot of Group A4 with two points; they have recorded two impressive draws against Germany, but lost their remaining games. Defeat here would spell relegation to League B, but the Nati are unbeaten in 17 competitive home fixtures (W14 D3).
• Spain top Group A4 with seven points but their 13-game unbeaten competitive run (W10 D3) ended last time out with a shock 1-0 defeat to an inexperienced Ukraine team.
Highlights: Spain 1-0 Switzerland
• Mikel Oyarzabal scored the only goal as Spain beat Switzerland 1-0 on Matchday 3. Switzerland have won just once in the sides’ six competitive meetings (W1 D1 L4) – 1-0 in the group stage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
• The sides’ only previous encounter in Basel was a 1-1 friendly draw in 1988; Genar Andrinúa gave Spain the lead, but Beat Sutter levelled for the home side.
What the coaches say
Vladimir Petković, Switzerland coach: “At the end of this special year, we once again have the opportunity to play against top teams. It was and is our goal to stay in the UEFA Nations League. In addition, we must now win against Spain and Ukraine. This is difficult, but not impossible. We are optimistic and at the same time realistic. Against the best teams in Europe, we have to call for 120 per cent performance to win.”
Luis Enrique, Spain coach: “We have been top of the table for almost the whole campaign and we have to make that count now. The group is open and all four teams can finish first and go through to the finals. Two years ago we were left with the feeling that we could get through, but England got the better of us. Since [Álvaro] Morata returned to Juventus, he is a different player both in attack and in defence. Meanwhile, Marcos Llorente is very powerful and very versatile.”
