This is a UEFA Group E World Cup qualifying match between Albania and Switzerland. Albania finds themselves in 5th place out of 6 teams in the table, but surprisingly they’re not out of contention yet. They’re only 3 points behind the second place team and a World Cup playoff.
Unfortunately they’re trying to get three points from the team atop the table, Switzerland. The Swiss don’t have the top of the table locked down, they could be caught if games played out perfectly but they seem to have a trip to Brazil locked up.
Date: October 11
