Wales vs Switzerland – Euro 2020
Euro 2020 – Saturday 12th June 14.00
It’s Wales vs Switzerland in the second game of Euro 2020 at the Bakı Olimpiya Stadionu – Baku. We take a look at the stats and best football tips.
Euro 2020 kicks off on Friday and Wales vs Switzerland is the second game in Group A after Turkey vs Italy on Friday. The historic stats favour Switzerland who have won five of the last seven between the two but Wales did win the most recent game back in 2012 qualifying. In the last Euro’s Wales reached the Semi Final whilst Switzerland reached the round of 16.
Turkey and Italy make up the group and a win in this game will be a huge boost for the qualification hopes of whoever can get it. The bookies rate Italy 1/20 to qualify, with Switzerland and Turkey both 4/7 and Wales 5/6.
The last match between the two was in EURO 2012 qualifying, Valentin Stocker scored twice as Switzerland won 4-1 with Gareth Bale getting the Wales goal. Bale also scored in a 2-0 win for Wales in Swansea, with Aaron Ramsey scoring the other goal.
Wales – PL 8 | Won 4 | GF 10 | GA 6
Last tournaments Semi Finalists come into this Euro’s with the bookies expected them to finish bottom of their group, it’s up to Wales to again prove them wrong. They are in good form and have only lost two of their last ten. Those losses came against Belgium and France whilst they managed a draw with England’s opponents Croatia. Wales have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven games and will need to be at their best defensively to recreate last years tournaments incredible achievement. Wales have averaged 2.6 bookings per game.
- Dan James – 3 bookings in 7 appearances
- Joe Allen – 3 bookings in 7 appearances
- Gareth Bale – 2 bookings in 7 appearances
- Ethan Ampadu – 2 bookings in 4 appearances
Switzerland – PL 8 | Won 5 | GF 19 | GA 6
The Swiss have been in great form winning 8 games in a row and have only lost one of their last thirteen matches. When you look at the quality of the opponents though it’s pretty poor. The best team they faced was Denmark who they lost to 0-1 and drew 3-3 at home in qualification. Their wins mostly come against the smaller nations such as Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Gibraltor and Georgia. Switzerland have kept the majority of possession in their recent matches mostly around 60-70% and i expect that to continue in this match. Switzerland receive 1.4 bookings per game on average.
- Ricardo Rodríguez – 2 bookings in 7 appearances
- Granit Xhaka – 2 bookings in 7 appearances
Betting Tips: I expect Switzerland to dominate possession and Wales to look to break on the counter. Both sides have been good defensively and i think we will see the Swiss win plenty of corners and for the game to feature plenty of bookings.
