The Swiss currently sit in third place in Group H behind Spain on goal differential. It is a tough call to make because there are quite a few scenarios that have to play out in order for the upset boys to go through.

Well first, the obvious has to happen, Switzerland needs to beat Honduras. A 2 goal margin of victory would be more than acceptable for the Swiss. Also, basically any result will do when referring to the Spain, Chile matchup. If Spain beats Chile, the Swiss should hope for a two goal margin of victory because that would reduce the Chilean GD (goal differential) to 0 and then the Swiss would advance through that tiebreaker. If there is a tie in that game, the Swiss are through because Spain would end the group stage with 4 points and Switzerland would finish second in the group with 6.

Finally, if Spain is upset by Chile, all Switzerland has to do is tie the Hondurans. So, will Switzerland go through? If I were a betting man, which I am, I would say yes. Their position right now is favorable because they more or less control their own destiny. Of course the Swiss should be more focused on their own game first, because without a win they will be saying goodbye to any chances of advancing to the Round of 16.
