Reason for Wales vs Switzerland Predictions
Wales finished second in their qualification group while Switzerland was top in theirs, but at Euro 2021, all that won’t matter much, as they seek the Group A ticket to the next round. Drawn in a pool with Italy and Turkey, these two nations will also hope to go to the second game with three points in the bag. The two nations had contrasting outcomes in their warm-up matches; Wales bad, Switzerland good. Wales lost one and drew the other of their two warm-up games. They were thrashed 3-0 by France before playing to a 0-0 draw with Albania; further, they haven’t scored more than a goal in 12 of their last 13 matches. However. They have seven clean sheets in their previous ten games, while seven of their last ten matches have produced under 2.5 goals. David Brooks enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and his most significant strength is speed.
Switzerland goes to this game having won their two warm-up matches, the most recent a 7-0 thrashing of Liechtenstein. They’ve actually won each of their last six games and are unbeaten in the previous seven. Switzerland has scored two or more goals in five of their six straight wins, and three of the six have produced clean sheets. The recent matches, though some against very weak opponents have shown a massive improvement for Switzerland. In the earlier seven games before going on a six-game winning streak, they had no win nor clean sheet and had in four matches, conceded two or more. The Swiss will be hard to break down, with goalkeeper Yann Sommer and center-back Nico Elvedi plying their trade at Borussia Monchengladbach, while Manuel Akanji has impressed at Dortmund. They are not blessed with attacking talent, though, and Xherdan Shaqiri struggled for game time at Liverpool this season. Haris Seferovic is experienced, plays in Benfica, played a great season, means a lot to the national team, and is expected to score more goals and bring joy to his nation. Vladimir Petković has been on the bench of the Swiss national team for a long time, and he is doing great. He has excellent support from the federation.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
