Serbia are targeting their second win in Group E of their 2018 FIFA World Cup match as they meet Switzerland on Friday night.

The Serbians are in high spirits having beaten Costa Rica last Sunday and will hope to bag their second win.

For the Swiss side, they are also confident heading to this clash after their hard fought draw against Brazil who are seen as favourites to emerge as group winners.

From the draw against the Selecao, they now occupy the third spot with a point whilst Costa Rica occupy the bottom of the table.

Meanwhile, the European sides will be meeting for the first time in history on Friday night and with winner going to thesettle top of the group.

However, that result will depend on how Brazil and Costa Rica finish earlier on the same day at Saint-Petersburg at 17:00 (CAT).

Kaliningrad Stadium is the venue for the clash on Friday at 20:00 (CAT).
