The European Championship for the Swiss national team begins in a week. On Saturday at 3 pm, Murat Yakin's team will face Hungary in Cologne. But before that, there is one last test: one day after the final 26-man roster for the tournament in Germany was announced – with Andy Zeqiri being the last player left out – the national team welcomes neighbors Austria to St Petersburg. Galen. Yakin will be without Xherdan Shaqiri and the ill Fabian Schar in the starting line-up – but Zaki Amdouni will have the chance to prove himself from the start after his goal against Estonia.

The task will not be easy for the Swiss, who did not play convincingly in the qualifiers, but they recently beat Ireland (1-0) and Estonia (4-0). However, the Austrians have a completely different scale, having only lost once in their last 15 matches (2:3 vs. Belgium). Thanks to victories over countries such as Germany (2:0), Italy (2:0) and more recently over European Championship participants Serbia (2:1), Turkey (6:1) and Slovakia (2:0), the Austrian Football Association is strengthened. The team is one of the secret favorites in the upcoming European Championships.

In addition to players such as Marcel Sabitzer (Dortmund), Konrad Laimer (Bayern) and Marko Arnautovic (Inter Milan), this is also due to coach Ralf Rangnick, who has reshaped the team since his arrival in May 2022. Thanks to his success, he has been considered a candidate for the coaching job in Bayern Munich, but the 65-year-old decided to stay with the Austrian national team. In the European Championship, they will already face France, the Netherlands and Poland in the group stage, so reaching the last 16 should be seen as a success.

There is uncertainty about the Swiss group's competitors:

Thanks to their strong performance, Austria looks to be the perfect opponent for the Swiss national team in the European Championships dress rehearsal. If they can prove themselves against Sabitzer and Co., captain Granit Xhaka and co can be confident that they are also prepared for duels with Hungary or Scotland.
