France vs Switzerland betting tips

France vs Switzerland Betting Tips

France are playing Switzerland as part of the round of 16 in the National Arena in Bucharest, Romania on the 29th of June 2021 at 00:30 IST. France again drew a game in the tournament while the Swiss are on the back of a commanding win. This match is going to be no easy ride for France for sure.

France Form and Team News

France finished as the top side from group F having drawn the last game against Portugal finishing with two goals each. France could’ve won the game if not for the two penalties conceded. France came back to draw the second game against Hungary but were quite disappointing to say nonetheless, with the sort of team they have. The attackers have to put their head down and start scoring from hereon. France were outplayed by the Germans with respect to the chances created and other aspects of the first game, but still, the World cup winners managed to find the winner in their opening fixture. The World Cup holders are continuing their quest for a EURO title which they narrowly missed in an epic final in 2016 at the hands of Portugal. France are widely tipped to go one better this time around and win the title. 

Didier Deschamps has had the luxury of having to coach some of the best players in the world that he can ask for. He made merry with them in the World Cup 2018 and won the title to create a legacy for his own. He now has the objective of winning the title that eluded them last time around. Benzema has glimpses of attacking prowess with his two-goal showing in the last game. Mbappe and co are still to show full potential in the leadup to the knockouts. The attack line needs to step up while the midfield has to keep the passes rolling.  

Switzerland Form and Team News

Switzerland had to win the last game against the Turks which they did quite magnificently beating them three goals to one. They have qualified into the next round on virtue of the win. Switzerland came undone against a dominant Italy in the second game not being to replicate anything they did during the first game. Switzerland was landing blows after blows in the first game against a clueless Wales in the first half and they continued to build on that in the second half as well netting in a goal also in the process, but let loose in the latter part of the game and conceded a goal to having settle for a draw. Switzerland after the loss in the second game has managed to score four points thus would be hoping to continue to build on this momentum. They are facing the world champs France in the Round of 16.

Coach Petkovic after the seven-match hiccup where the Swiss were not able to win any games had managed to turn around the form and turn them into the winning machine, the last match showed exactly what the Swiss are capable of doing. He would hope that the team builds on this and wins against the French side and throw in their hat for contention into the next round. Shaqiri showed flashes of brilliance with his showing in the last game while Seferovic too meant business netting in a goal in the process.

Our Tipster’s Angle

The current World Cup Champions are favourites to win this match given their superior head to head record against Switzerland where they are yet to lose any match while winning on two occasions. France are also the better team on paper while Switzerland seems a bit lost in this championship even though they won against Turkey, they did not turn up what they are used to in the past which could be something France would capitalise on.

Tip 1: France to Win

France even though for the tough draw in the last game, have not still been beaten even once in the last nine matches which shows the dominance by the world champions. They are expected to make a comeback against the Switzerland side in the first of the knockout games. Switzerland on the other hand had to be content with a draw in the first game while only winning against a depleted Turkey side. The second game showed how Switzerland could be opened up and can be beaten, Italy was brilliant in that game. France here have a dominant head to head stat as well going into this game where they have lost not even once against the Swiss in history. So given all of this, France can be expected to win this game. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for France to win is 1.55.

Tip 2: Total Goals under 2.5

France have not been scoring many goals recently even with the likes of their famed attack line in place. Mbappe and co. have failed to score much, the re-entry of Benzema is finally showing signs of reignition of the French attack nonetheless. Six of their last ten matches across competitions have all seen under 2.5 goals scored by both teams combined. While playing as the host, two of their last four matches have also been the same. The head to head between the two sides have also had four of their last five matches where the total goals were under 2.5. While playing with France as host, the head to head record stays the same as above, the last two games satisfying the condition. Switzerland on the other hand playing away, have had one of the last two where the condition was satisfied. So it’s quite likely that the total goals will be under 2.5. The odds for the same according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.68.

Conclusion

France could well make a comeback of sorts in this match given the Switzerland defence performs in the same way as they did against the Italians. The Swiss could also cause the upset of the season give they win here. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. France to win @1.55
  2. Total goals under 2.5 @ 1.68
