Team News

  • Wilson Palacios returns from suspension and is expected to come into the starting XI.
  • Juan Carlos García replaced the ineffective Emilio Izaguirre at the left-back against Ecuador at half time and may start this one.
  • Carlo Costly and Jerry Bengston are expected to lead the attack, despite having scored just 1 goal between them in Brazil.
  • Steve Von Bergen was substituted off early in the 5-2 defeat to France and could miss out here, with Philippe Senderos expected to partner Johan Djourou in his absence.
  • Blerim Dzemaili came on at half time and netted late on and could be rewarded with a start.
  • Haris Seferovic was handed a start on the back of his match winning strike against Ecuador, but may drop the bench here.

Prediction

  • Honduras' World Cup campaign came to an end late on Friday with the 2-1 defeat to Ecuador. The Central American nation looked out of depth in Brazil and were never expected to make it out of their group.
  • Switzerland on the other hand are tipped to progress from Group E. Despite a 5-2 defeat to France, the Swiss still have the quality to make it to the second-round.
  • The likes of Josip Drmic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Ricardo Rodriguez have the quality to punish Honduras in this one.
  • Despite looking defensively suspect, Switzerland have the ability to win here.
