Bayer Leverkusen is in a devastating form in the Bundesliga this year as they are unbeaten in 11 matches with 34 goals and only conceding 10 times. However, during the time the tournament must give way to international matches, coach Xabi Alonso has the right to be concerned about the physical condition of the players assigned to the national team in the EURO 2024 qualifiers.
Die Werkself’s remarkable progress has been greatly contributed by Swiss player Granit Xhaka, who has appeared in every match for Leverkusen after moving from Arsenal last summer. The fact that the 31-year-old midfielder will play 3 matches in 6 days in the EURO 2024 qualifiers is something that could increase his risk of injury, who is already susceptible to injuries when he played for the Gunners abroad. English class.
However, Xhaka has confirmed that he believes he is in perfect shape for the upcoming matches: “I feel comfortable and energetic, I am completely healthy. The fact that we have three matches with the national team now is like that. The most important thing is to think every day, every match and prepare professionally for every match. And I’m doing it very well at the moment.”
Last night, the Swiss team had a 1-1 draw on Israel’s field. After that, Xhaka’s team will have two matches against Kosovo on November 19 and Romania on the final day of the international series.
