Wales vs Switzerland Prediction: UEFA Euro 2020 | 12.06.2021
EURO 2020 finally kicks off on Friday night with the opener between Italy and Turkey. Wales and Switzerland are the other two teams in Group A, and they will start their campaign on Saturday afternoon.
Preview of EURO 2020
Wales and Switzerland will both realistically compete for second place in Group A, with Italy clearly the favorite for the top of the group. Both nations will feel they have a chance to make it happen, especially as Wales did well five years ago as they reached the semi-finals.
The good feeling that has focused around the camp during this race is not evident as the EUROs approach this year, as they will be without their manager Ryan Giggs, while questions about Gareth’s long-term future Bale also threatened to derail their preparations. It hasn’t been the easiest preparation for competition this summer as they haven’t won any of their warm-up matches. They were beaten 3-0 by Wales in their opener, before ending up in a stalemate against Albania in their final warm-up match last weekend.
Switzerland remain among the top-ranked teams in the FIFA rankings, as they currently have one spot ahead of Croatia and three ahead of the Netherlands. The Swiss are seen by most as black horses to have a strong EURO race this summer, and they have had almost perfect preparation. They won both warm-up matches they played and scored nine goals in total. After beating the United States 2-1 last week, they beat Liechtenstein 7-0. Mario Gavranovic scored an excellent hat-trick in this victory, while Christian Fassnacht scored a brace. Edimison Fernandes also scored in the big win.
Wales vs Switzerland Head to Head
Wales and Switzerland have met seven times, with the Swiss winning five of the matches. However, Wales won the most recent match between the nations, as they won a 2-0 victory in qualifying for EURO 2012. However, this was their first victory against Switzerland since May 1951. .
Prediction Wales vs Switzerland
The opening matches of major tournaments can often be difficult, but Wales and Switzerland will be aware that they will need to collect as many points as possible in their opening match. Wales have had a tough preparation for the tournament which means Switzerland could be a safer bet to win the opener this weekend.
