A win in Geneva on Tuesday would put Ireland through to Euro 2020 but defeat would undo all of their good work throughout qualifying.
📝 Match preview
Ireland is 90 minutes away from Euro 2020 qualification. They could also be 90 minutes away from a result that makes the long-time group leaders firm outsiders to book an automatic at next year's showpiece tournament.
Vladimir Petkovic's Switzerland team knows that wins from their matches with Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar will put them through too. A draw would put them in an uncomfortable position and Denmark into the finals, presuming they beat Gibraltar in the second last match. The Swiss would be vulnerable to elimination if Norway becomes complacent against Ireland in Dublin next month.
Switzerland must wonder how on earth they're in this sticky situation, having led 3-0 against Denmark to squander that advantage to draw 3-3. They dominated Ireland and ultimately drew 1-1, and lost to Denmark after a string of fine saves from keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
The Swiss must wonder why they are in this position. They led 3-0 against Denmark in March and shipped three in the last six minutes. They dominated Ireland in Dublin last month and conceded a late equaliser. On Saturday, they were thwarted consistently by the man of the match Kasper Schmeichel and came away with nothing.
