Nikola Rakojević's chosen team will play against Albania on Tuesday from 15:XNUMX at the stadium under Gorica and it will be their first match in this cycle in which they are the hosts. The first of three in a row - in March, namely, duels with Finland and Armenia await them.

"We are going to win, regardless of how strong the opponent is in the qualifiers, the expectations are always the highest. We analyzed Albania and saw that they have quality, they showed us that in the first game when they defeated us. In the qualifiers you have very few chances to make amends, I believe that we will reach the result that we all want," Rakojević said.
Switzerland has played four games so far and is the leader of the group with 10 points. Romania and Albania have nine each (the Albanians played five matches), Finland and Montenegro three each, and Armenia one...
"We have three matches in a row at home. This first one is, of course, the most important, then in March of next year we play against Armenia and Finland... I believe that the three games will determine what our chances are when it comes to the fight for qualification to the European Championship. Now everything is subordinated to Albania, we have the strength to make a good result," Rakojević pointed out.
