What is the magit equivalent of git switch branch?

I'm particularly interested in the situation where you cloned a repo, and want to checkout a remote branch locally.

From the commandline that usually looks like:

$ git clone repo
$ cd repo
$ git branch -a
  remotes/origin/branch 
$ git switch branch
  Branch 'branch' set up to track remote branch 'branch' from 'origin'
  Switched to a new branch 'branch'
