Serbia vs Switzerland preview

Serbia absolutely must win this match to have any chance of going through to the next round of the competition.

They have just one point heading into this match, having been bested by Brazil and then surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Cameroon.

Serbia will have to cut out the errors in their final match of the group stage to get the win against a difficult opponent in Murat Yakin's team.

Switzerland, meanwhile, will progress with a draw as long as Cameroon do not beat Brazil in the other match.

Serbia vs Switzerland tips and predictions

This should be a tight and nervy affair so don't expect many goals. Backing under 2.5 goals has paid off in all of Switzerland's last three matches so it's worth doing so this time around at odds of 4/5 (1.80).
