The Helvetians are the second team in history to knock out France in a high-scoring match. They got it with a draw (3-3) after 120 minutes of play and prevailing (4-5) in the penalty shoot-out.

They have gone from less to more, starting with doubts (1-1) against Wales and unable to stop the gale (3-0) against Italy. The victory (3-1) against a disappointing Turkey allowed them to finish in third place in the group and the aforementioned knockout stake gave a great boost of morale.
Vladimir Petkovic will have the delicate loss of the captain, Granit Xhaka, suspended, since he received the second warning of the tournament in the round of 16. In addition, in case of accessing the next round, the warned Manuel Akanji, Nico Elvedi, Breel Embolo, Kevin Mbabu, Fabian Schär, Ricardo Rodríguez and Mario Gavranovic could miss the hypothetical semifinals.

Yan Sommer – Nico Elvedi, Manuel Akanji, Ricardo Rodríguez – Steven Zuber, Remo Freuler, Denis Zakaria, Kevin Mbabu – Xherdan Shaqiri – Breel Embolo, Haris Seferovic

Although the historical balance is favorable for Spain, the three most recent games have left two draws and a victory of The Red very tight (1-0). In addition, the recent elimination of the big favorite to win the tournament is an important wake-up call, so we do not expect anything that is not a close contest.
Prediction: Switzerland 2 – 3 Spain with extra time
