With a win on Tuesday in Romania, the SFV selection could take a big step towards direct qualification for EM 2022 in England. If the Swiss win the second leg after 6-0 in the first leg, one point is enough to secure their group victory at the end of qualifying on 1 December in Belgium.
Notice in real time
Follow the match between Romania and Switzerland on Tuesday from 16:20 on SRF zwei and in the SRF Sport app.
Even the best 3 runners-up in the group qualify directly for the final stage, the other 6 compete for the playoffs for a further 3 places. “We all know that if we get 3 points, it looks very good,” says national team manager Nils Nielsen.
Wälti has to defend again
On defense, however, he is plagued with injury concerns. In addition to long-lasting injuries Rahel Kiwic and Viola Calligaris, Noelle Maritz and Luana Bühler will also be out of the game in Mogosoaia, a suburb of Bucharest. As in the 2-1 victory over Belgium in September, captain Lia Wälti will play again as central defender. FC Barcelona’s top scorer Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic would be an alternative for the defensive outside track.
