Spain won all three of their World Cup tune-up matches and showed how solid their offense is with a 6-0 pasting of Poland in their last match. Even though Switzerland only played two tune-up matches and did not win one they played solid in playing to a 1-1 draw in their last match against 2006 World Cup champion Italy.
The great Spanish offense is led by Fernando Torres and David Villa and the offensive midfielders of Xavi Hernandez and Cesc Fabregas. Spain will attack all match long and the Swiss defense has a tall task to keep them from scoring. Even though the offense is the strength of Spain they have a good defense anchored by one of the most underrated goalies in the world in Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas.
Striker Alexander Frei is the leading goal-scorer for the Swiss and he will have to produce some offense for the neutral country in this match. One player that is key for Switzerland is G Diego Benaglio. He will be tested all match long by the dynamic Spanish offense and he has to have a great game for the Swiss to have any chance at the HUGE upset.
Spain has got a ton of press as the team to beat in the World Cup, but they have to perform on the field and they can get off to a good start with a win over a Swiss team they should have no problem beating.
