Switzerland are ready to face Spain today after Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer’s penalty shoot-out heroics saw the Swiss though to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020. Can Switzerland prove the doubters wrong a second time? The game is free to watch in HD on ITV and the ITV Hub online. Make sure you know how to watch a Switzerland vs Spain live stream wherever you are in the world.
The team news is in and Spain head coach Luis Enrique has settled on a mix of his previous XIs. Sarabia and Ferran Torres keep their places in attack, either side of Alvaro Morata, having proved instrumental in the win against Croatia. Both Pau Torres and Jordi Alba return to the back line. Switzerland remain unchanged apart from Monchengladbach’s Denis Zakaria who replaces the suspended Granit Xhaka in the heart of midfield.

”What a match! What an evening of football,” exclaimed goalkeeper Yann Sommer after saving Mbappé’s penalty to secure Switzerland’s first win at a knockout tournament since the 1938 FIFA World Cup.
Having eliminated the world champions, Vladimir Petkovi?’s men will be bursting with confidence ahead of their quarter-final clash with Spain this Friday. If Alvaro Morata is on form, the Swiss will have a fight on their hands.
”The game against France was almost too emotional,” said Petkovi?. “All my players gave 120 per cent. It was probably one of my team’s best games ever. We will need a similar performance against Spain in the quarter-finals.”
Spain have notched up 10 goals in their last two Euro 2020 matches, and came back against a strong Croatia side to win 5-3 in extra time. With France and Portugal knocked out, Spain will fancy their chances of making it to Wembley for the final. That said, when Spain last met the Swiss at a major tournament they lost 1-0, at the 2010 World Cup.
”The quarter-final is down to us, not our opponents. It wouldn’t matter if it were France, the Swiss, Ukraine – we are here to win,” said Spain goalkeeper Unai Simón. “We have to face and beat the best.”
The game kicks off today at 5pm BST at the Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg. UK fans can tune in on ITV but read on for more details on how to watch a Switzerland vs Spain live stream for free wherever you are in the world.
