    I believe Kaputska is the only player suspended for this round of games, which sucks as he seemed to bring creativity to Poland. I suspect this will go to penalties.

    Very curious to see this one. The Swiss haven't fired on all cylinders yet, and Djourou means they will always be vulnerable; but Schar has been fantastic, Xhaka is getting to do his thing, Embolo has gotten ahead of Seferovic up front, and Mehmedi has been really nifty.

    I think Poland can make a run to the final in this tourney, but this should be a tricksy test.

    Haven't been impressed with the Swiss since Petkovic took over while Poland too weren't overly brilliant in the group stage but kept three clean sheets and at least created chances which they missed. Think this is a game both sides won't risk much, that's what the Swiss usually do in the knockout stage anyway, play for penalties. I went with Poland only because Id rather watch them than Swiss but its a 50/50 tie

    Poland win this in penalties. 1-1 after extra time.

    Not the worst prediction. Unless Lewa finally arrives this could be a boring game.

    This one going to penalties is not a bold prediction.

    Milik's finishing leaves much to be desired.

    Switzerland isn't very good. Xhaka hasn't impressed so far IMO and Embolo was awful for most of the tournament.

    I see Poland as the clearly superior team.

    Lewandowski getting agressive, he wants that goal badly.

    No way. What a miss, but I thought it was a handball.
