Switzerland Form and Team News

Switzerland along with Italy are the only team in the group who have not lost a single game and also have won all their played games. The Swiss are part of Group C in the world cup qualification round. They are placed along with Italy, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Lithuania. They have played a couple of games so far and have won both these games coming into this game. Switzerland did have a decent EURO outing where they lost against Spain in the quarterfinal. But they literally caused the upset of the season when they knocked out World Champions France in a classic Pre-Quarter clash. They are now up against an Italian side who had the measure of this Swiss outfit when they faced off in the group stages, nevertheless, The Swiss will be hoping to cause an upset of sorts here. 

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 match against France in the Euro showed exactly what the Swiss are capable of doing. He would hope that the team builds on that and wins against the Italian side and throw in their hat for contention into the next round.  Seferovic had been quite spectacular for the Swiss and him combined with Zeqiri could have a major impact in any game. And with the likes of captain Xhaka too playing brilliantly in the middle, the Swiss could be a hard side to beat. 

Italy Form and Team News

Italy have seen it all. They are in the middle of a record which no other national side can boast of presently, 34 matches without a defeat is some feat!  They won the Euro this year to top it off. The Italian side showed a tremendous amount of character to win that against not just the English side on the pitch, but even the people in the stands who turned a bit hostile towards the end. They are presently part of Group C and have played three qualification games thus far and naturally winning all of these games. They are now facing the Swiss side in the next qualification game and would hope to keep this momentum going. The recent record as mentioned above just says wins and this also reflects in not the last ten matches but across the last 15 matches where the Italians have astonishingly finished on the winning side. 

Coach Roberto Mancini has been quite magnificent with his tactics and strategies in the recent games of Italy and would hope to keep the same momentum in the next set of games as well. They have arguably the best defensive combination presently going around in International football with the likes of Bonucci and Chiellini, and this they would hope to continue in the coming years as well. Chiesa has been a revelation. Ciro Immobile barring some unnecessary overreactions is also a force to reckon.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 Italy look set to go the distance while the Swiss need to keep their head down and don’t be complacent. They would want to showcase the game they played against the French in this game and that would be the only option against this rampaging Italian side. The recent record heavily favors Italy. The head to head also reads the same. Switzerland don’t need to think of all these, they just can focus on playing some good football on the given day and try winning. 

Tip 1: Italy to win

Italy as said above are displaying the brand of football they are famous for in the recent matches and are looking like they are probably likely to continue with the same in the upcoming matches given the form of the players. The Swiss, on the other hand, have not been able to translate their play into consistent performances and that might come back to hurt them in the games against stronger oppositions. The Italian side have a better record against Switzerland in the head to head matches as well. Playing head to head against the Swiss, they have won two of the five games played so far. And whilst this, they are yet to lose a single game against this opposition. The recent record too says a lot about what we can expect from this Italian side. So it’s quite likely that Italy will win this game. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the same is 2.04.

Tip 2: Italy total goals over 1.5

Italy in the last ten games they have been part has had seven games where they have scored over 1.5 goals in total during the match. This includes the friendlies, Euro and also the qualification matches. Playing as the away side, they have had all five games in the last five where they have scored over 1.5 goals as a team in the match. Both of the last two matches Italy played as the away side in this tournament also saw them help strengthening the claim for the above condition to be satisfied. Switzerland too has conceded over 1.5 goals in the last two head to head games as well. They have also conceded over the limit in two of the last four matches across competitions as well. So we can expect this game to see over 1.5 goals from Italy. The odds for Italy’s total goals over 1.5 is 2.10. 


A mind-blowing record at stake, will the Italians be able to hold their nerve, or will the Swiss break the jinx. We will find out in Basel on Monday when these sides meet. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1.     Italy to win @ 2.04
  2.     Italy total goals over 1.5 @ 2.10
