Wales and Switzerland get their campaigns underway on matchday 2 of Euro 2020 (2021) in the unfamiliar surrounds of Baku. Switzerland start as favourites, but the Welsh have plenty of recent big tournament experience to call upon.

Our Betting Tips

Wales have become accustomed to these big games in recent years having qualified for the last European Championships and World Cup. Indeed, five years ago the Welsh reached the semi-finals, in part inspired by Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale. Bale finished the season on fine form on loan at Tottenham, and we can expect the forward to get on the scoresheet here. It’s proving a popular bet with the sports betting sites.

GARETH BALE TO SCORE ANYTIME

The last time these two sides met was ten years ago and it was Wales who prevailed on that occasion, with Bale finding the scoresheet. In the last five encounters between these two teams, one of the teams has failed to score. We can expect that to happen again here.

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE – NO

Both Wales and Switzerland only conceded six times apiece during qualifying, so know how to remain resolute. The game may well be decided by one of couple of world class talents on the pitch, and goals in general will be at a premium. It makes smart sense to go under 2.5 goals.

TOTAL GOALS UNDER 2.5

Statistics

Head to Head

Wales and Switzerland meet in Baku for both teams’ opening Euro 2020 (2021) encounter. Here are some of the most interesting stats ahead of this match-up to help inform your online betting.

Stats

  • This will be the first time these two teams have met in ten years. Wales won that last encounter by two goals to nil. That was only Wales’ second ever victory over the Swiss.
  • The goalscorers that day were Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey – two players who can be expected to take their places in the Wales line-up for this encounter. Bale could be a good outside shout for tournament top goalscorer too after finishing the season in fine form on loan at Spurs.
  • Despite Switzerland qualifying as Group D winners and Wales getting through by finishing second in Group E, these two teams conceded the same number of goals across their eight qualifying matches: six.

Our Prediction for Wales Vs Switzerland

Wales to win

Switzerland, as regular finals attendees, are the firm favourites with the bookmakers but Wales shouldn’t be underestimated. The Welsh reached the semi-finals in 2016, of course, and have a genuine match winner in the shape of Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
