Serbia have a chance to create history when they go head to head against Switzerland in an all European clash in Kaliningrad. A win will guarantee passage to the second round for the first time since they started participating as an independent nation, a feat quite astonishing for a team considered in the lower rungs of international football. Switzerland though will be a tough nut to crack especially after their performance in the opening game where they held Brazil to a 1-1 draw. Below are the relevant details of Serbia vs Switzerland live telecast, free live streaming online details in addition to start-time, venue details and their team standings in 2018 FIFA World Cup Group E points table.
There is also an edge to this game with Switzerland fielding players of Kosovan lineage like Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka and Valon Behrami who will certainly be fired up at the prospect of playing Serbia with so much history between the two nations. This could potentially overshadow the contest with unnecessary controversy especially with Shaqiri stepping on the field with Kosovo flag printed on his shoes. But the diminutive winger can let the football do the talking when he comes up against an ageing Serbian back line who can struggle to his pace and trickery.
Valon Behrami has a slight muscular problem but should be available for the game and both sides could field an unchanged lineup. The two sides boast of strong physicality which more often than not makes up for the lack of technical prowess. There could be feisty aerial duels in the middle of the park with Nemanja Matic and Valaon Behrami involved and the side that can grab on to the major share of second balls could dominate the game. Serbian captain Alexander Kolarov is dangerous with his set-piece delivery and crossing and can hurt Switzerland from the wide areas.

Serbian coach Mladen Krstajic spoke at length about how his side is not going to back down from the challenges and will be aggressive from the first minute to last, before the game. Expect plenty of pyro techniques in this one.
