Czech Republic and Switzerland get their respective Nations League campaigns underway in Prague in Group A2. In a difficult group alongside Spain and Portugal, this is a must win game for both sides if they realistically want to make it through to the finals of the competition.
The Czech side will be hoping to put their failure to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar behind them, but will come up against a Swiss side that went unbeaten in their qualifying group, finishing top ahead of Euro 2020 winners Italy.
Switzerland made themselves tough to beat, keeping six clean sheets in their eight games and conceding just two goals on their way to qualifying for the World Cup finals in November. They will be hoping to improve on their last showing in the Nations League though, after finishing bottom of Group A4 on three points after drawing three and losing two of their five games.

Czech Republic vs Switzerland match stats
Czech Republic will be without Euro 2020 star Patrick Schick against the Swiss, who misses out through injury.
The Bayer Leverkusen man has been in fine form in the Bundesliga this season, scoring 24 goals and providing three assists in 27 appearances. He finished as the second top goalscorer behind goal machine Robert Lewandowski and averaged a goal every 87 minutes.
The forward finished as the joint top goalscorer at Euro 2020 and has scored seven goals in his last eight international games for the Czechs and will be a huge miss for the Nations League.
