Switzerland have progressed through the group stages and into the knockout phase for the first time in four attempts. They are currently one of the few teams yet to be beaten this Euros, after drawing two and winning one of their three group stage clashes.

The Swiss, however, have not won a knockout match in a major competition since 1938 when they overcame Germany in a first round replay game at the 1938 Fifa World Cup. Vladimir Petkovic will be keen to overturn that record and take his team to their first quarter-finals.

Poland, similarly, are also making it to the knockout phase of the competition for the first time after having failed to win any games in a European finals prior to their win over Northern Ireland in their opening game of Euro 2016. Robert Lewandowski is yet to fire in this tournament and Adam Nawalka will be hoping that his star man rises to the occasion and takes them to their first ever quarter-finals.

Poland have an envious record against the Swiss, having lost to them just once in their 10 encounters thus far. They have won four and drawn five. Their most recent meeting was in an international friendly, which ended in a 2-2 draw. Penalties are a very high possibility in this game. The winners of the game will meet either Portugal or Croatia at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.

What manager's say

Vladimir Petkovic (Switzerland): History is behind us. You don't live on past achievements, we want to achieve something even more significant.

It's a notable achievement but the first step forward was this, it was a minimum objective. We showed good play and held firm. We've already played Poland in a friendly, they're an excellent side. We now need to recover our energy levels.

Adam Nawalka (Poland): We have prepared some information on Switzerland. They play at a high level and they're one of the more interesting teams at this tournament [but] we have faith and optimism that we'll go further.
