Scotland vs Switzerland

Scotland-vs-Switzerland-euro2024Scotland aims to get their first win of Euro 2024 on Wednesday night as they take on Switzerland at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne. Steve Clarke’s men came into the opener with hosts Germany with plenty of hope rather than expectation, but that hope had rather fizzled out by halftime with the score at 3-0 and the Scots down to ten men. After such a crushing 5-1 defeat on Friday, this now becomes a must-win for Scotland if they are to have any hopes of progressing to the knockout stages. Clarke will have to shuffle the deck a little, with centre-back Ryan Porteous suspended.

In stark contrast, Switzerland settled into their campaign rather quickly, with two first-half goals against Hungary in their opener. The Hungarians struck back, but Breel Emoblo secured the three points late on. Assuming Germany beat Hungary in the other game, a win here could see Switzerland be among the first sides to progress to the knockouts, so there’s extra motivation for the Swiss here. They showed in their opener that they have plenty of quality, and their forwards are already firing, so it all seems to point to a good win for Switzerland.

The bookmakers have Switzerland as the favourites, but their price is still very good in the match result market. Our advice is to jump on that before it’s reduced. Striker Breel Embolo was given 17 minutes after returning from injury and notched a decisive goal against Hungary. If he features from the start, he’d be our pick to score the game’s first goal. Scotland showed a lack of discipline against Germany and Scott McTominay loves a tackle in the middle of the park, he’d be our pick to get a booking.
