Live stream Sweden vs Switzerland – when and where
Switzerland and Sweden will go up against each other on Tuesday, July 3rd at Saint-Petersburg Stadium. The stadium was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurosawa who envisioned a spaceship landing on the shores of the Gulf of Finland!
The match is set to kick-off at 5pm local time (3pm BST, 10am ET, 7am PT, midnight AEST) today. For fans in Sweden and Switzerland, that’s 4pm.
Sweden and Switzerland will meet on the pitch today to face off in the Russia 2018 round of 16 with both teams fighting to earn an unexpected place in the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup. And getting a free live stream of the match is really easy.
Group F winner Sweden made it to the top of a difficult group that featured Mexico and Germany. Despite their loss to Germany in the last minute, they recorded two wins including that impressive 3-0 thrashing of an in-form Mexico.
Switzerland managed to finish Group E unbeaten after a win against Serbia and draws against Brazil and Costa Rica. The team is looking to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 1954.
