Serbia vs. Switzerland: World Cup 2018 Live

24’: Swiss Controlling Ball, But Few Chances

Switzerland has actually possessed the ball for longer because they are attempting to build attacks, while Serbia is far more direct. But the best shot Switzerland can manufacture is a speculative one from outside the box.

19’: Mitrovic Again!

This time Mitrovic decides to chest down a cross and attempt a bicycle kick from the edge of the box. It’s unsuccessful, but how much longer can Switzerland keep him at bay?

16’: Heavy Pressure by Serbia

Switzerland is just under relentless pressure here, with keeper Yann Sommer forced into action twice before offside is called.

When they do manage to possess the ball, the Serbian press quickly takes it away from them.

14’: Serbia’s Mitrovic Again

Swiss defenders might have nightmares of Mitrovic in their sleep. He gets his noggin on another cross, but is too far from goal and his header loops over.

12’: Best World Cup Ever?

In some ways, this is the most exciting World Cup ever!

10’: Chance for Switzerland

Switzerland’s best chance of the match so far goes wasting. Ricardo Rodríguez did well to chase down a ball near the touch line, beat his man and put a pass on the floor toward the penalty spot, but Blerim Dzemaili’s shot went wide of the goal.

8’: Swiss in Catch-Up Made Again

Switzerland is generally thought of as a defensive and organized team, and thus going down early and needing to chase the game is a disaster. But they went down early against Brazil too, and still managed a draw.

5’: GOAL!!! Serbia Up, 1-0

Goal for Serbia! Aleksandar Mitrovic heads it into the back of the net.

Dusan Tadic put a nice left-footed cross into the box, and Mitrovic out-jumped Fabian Schar to put it past Yann Sommer. Switzerland can’t say they weren’t warned. Just 20 seconds earlier Sommer did well to parry away a Mitrovic header. The second time he wasn’t so lucky.

0’: Kickoff!

We’re underway! Serbia in the red, Switzerland in the white.
