Switzerland Euro 2021 Odds & Predictions

Switzerland Euro 2021 Odds & PredictionsMost bookmakers rank the Switzerland Euro 2020 team pretty low in terms of winning the tournament. With prices around 67.00 (66/1), it places just above Poland and below Ukraine. The Swiss have become regulars in the last decade in competitions like the Euro and the World Cup. However, they have failed to make a breakthrough success, and that reflects in the odds. The most successful runs were to the Round of 16 in the 2014 & 2018 World Cups and the 2016 European Championship. 

When you look at your sportsbook’s odds, a legit question is ‘’ Can Switzerland break the barrier this time?’’. That seems complicated; nevertheless, Vladimir Petkovic has some aces up his sleeve. The vast majority of Swiss footballers play abroad in competitive leagues. That gives them experience in challenging games, valuable in a tournament like Euro. Moreover, the Switzerland Euro, 2020 Qualifiers squad was pretty successful, finishing first in the group, which could be a sign of good things to come. Feel free to explore our top picks and predictions from top-ranked betting sites.

Switzerland Euro 2020 Fixtures & Schedule

Switzerland Euro 2020 Fixtures & ScheduleThe Switzerland group in Euro 2020 includes Italy, Turkey and Wales. With the Azzuri as the heavy favorites, the rest will fight for a qualification place. The Swiss have almost equal odds with Turkey to finish second. However, we have to consider that Turkey will play two games in neighboring Baku, Azerbaijan. At the same time, Switzerland will play the first match in Baku; then, it will travel to Rome and then back to Azerbaijan.  So many long trips in a short amount of time can take a toll on the players. At 6.00 (5/1) odds, Switzerland ties with Turkey as a winner in the group. Italy stands at 1.50 (1/2) odds and Wales at 8.50 (15/2).

The silver lining for the Swiss is that should they grab that second place, the Round of 16 does not look insurmountable. Denmark and Russia emerge as the most likely opponents. While no easy task, they do not seem like a mountain to climb. A third-place finish could very well mean the end of the road for the Switzerland Euro 2020 team. Possible opponents include Group F (France, Germany or Portugal), Spain and Belgium. Our table provides all the fixtures of Group A concerning Switzerland.

Switzerland's Group Matches Date Venue
Wales vs. Switzerland 12th June 2021 / 15:00 CET Olympic Stadium, Baku
Italy vs. Switzerland 16th June 2021 / 21:00 CET Stadio Olimpico, Rome
Switzerland vs. Turkey 20th June 2021 / 21:00 CET Olympic Stadium, Baku

Can Switzerland win Group A 

Can Switzerland win Group A That seems very difficult, at least on paper. Italy is the undisputed favorite, and Turkey is the joint favorite with the  Switzerland Euro 2020 squad as runner-ups. The latest odds for the place that Switzerland will take in Group A are shown below.

To Win Group @6.00 (5/1)
To Qualify Group @1.53 (8/15)
To Place 2nd @3.10 (21/10)
Not to Qualify Group @3.10 (21/10)

Switzerland's Group Place Last-16 Probable Opponents
1st Runner-up Group C (Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia)
2nd Runner-up Group B (Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia)
3rd* Winner Group F (Hungary, Portugal, France, Germany) / Winner Group E (Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia) / Winner Group B (Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia)

*If Group A gives one of the best 3rd-placed teams to advance to the Last-16.

As you can see, the Swiss have every good reason to fight for second place. A matchup with Russia or Denmark will place them against equal opponents in a close game. A third place will probably make Switzerland kiss the quarter-finals goodbye. The winner of the group of death with France, Germany and Portugal, Spain from group E or Belgium from Group B are frontrunners for winning the tournament. That translates to a mountain to climb should Switzerland finish third.

✔️Our prediction: The Switzerland group in Euro 2020 has three teams fighting for one spot. Playing all matches away is a drawback, but the motive and the experience are there for the Swiss. A second-place finish has 3.10 (21/10) odds, entirely worth a shot.

What odds & bets bookies offer for Switzerland 

What odds & bets bookies offer for Switzerland The long chance of Switzerland winning Euro 2020 is only a tiny fraction of the available wagers. Bettors can find a multitude of daily and outright markets for Petkovic’s team. Group A is quite competitive, but if the Swiss manage to grab second place, the road to the quarter-finals is open. And several players can make that happen.

The captain, Granit Xhaka (92 caps), is the undoubted leader of the Switzerland Euro 2020 squad. A regular at Arsenal for the last five years, he will bring his Premier League experience to the national team. Coming from a full season with 43 matches at the Gunners, Xhaka wants to guide his teammates to a successful tournament. Known for physical play and endless stamina, he will be the connecting tissue between defense and attack.

Xherdan Shaqiri (89 caps) will be another reference point for Switzerland, with vast international experience at Bayern Munich, Inter and Liverpool. Aside from his playmaking skills, Shaqiri has an eye for goals, as he has scored 23 times with the Swiss. His 2020-2021 season with Liverpool has had ups and downs, but he never lost touch with the first team. Shaqiri will be a constant threat to the opponent’s rearguard.

✔️Our prediction: The Switzerland Euro 2020 team is heavily dependent on Xhaka and Shaqiri. Should they be on top form, the Swiss have a shot at reaching the quarter-finals. The odds for that market fluctuate around 3.75 (11/4).

The Key Players & Tactics

The Key Players & TacticsA well-balanced team across all lines is the main strength of Switzerland. Players like Elvedi, Akinji will cover the defensive line, while Seferovic and Embolo will be responsible for scoring goals. As we mentioned above, Xhaka and Shaqiri will be the masterminds in midfield. An essential element is that they have all played for years in top-tier leagues. Furthermore, the core of the national team has been together for a long time, giving them unmatched chemistry.

The preferred tactics of the coach Vladimir Petkovic include a 3-4-1-2 formation. He has used it almost exclusively in the Nations League and the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. Also, it seems that he has a clear idea of which players to deploy. In the last matches, he only changed one midfielder. If all players are fit and healthy, the lineup is almost confirmed.

The Probable Lineup 

The Probable Lineup Since Switzerland Euro 2020 team will use the 3-4-1-2, Yann Sommer will be the goalkeeper. Nico Elvedi, Ricardo Rodriguez and Manuel Akanji will comprise the defensive line. Silvan Widmer, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka and Ruben Vargas will coordinate the game in the midfield. Xherdan Shaqiri will act as the secret ace behind the forwards, Haris Seferović and Breel Embolo. On the bench, Denis Zakaria, Edimilson Fernandes and Admir Mehmedi will give a much-needed boost to challenging games.

The Manager 

The Manager Vladimir Petkovic is the longest-serving manager in the history of Swiss football, and there are many good reasons for that. He has led the squad for the first time to the Round of 16 in Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup. A midfielder in his playing years, he made the transition to a manager in 1999. He enjoyed a successful sting in Lazio, where he won the Coppa Italia in 2013. Since 2014 he serves as the manager of the Switzernal national football team. During his tenure, in 71 games, he has scored 38 wins, 15 draws and 18 losses. With the Switzerland Euro 2020 squad, he wants to surpass the barrier and qualify to the quarter-finals for the first time.
