Switzerland vs Spain – Euro 2020 Betting Tips

Switzerland and Spain are playing each other in the first quarterfinal on the 2nd of July 2021 at 21:30 IST in the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The Swiss after the epic win over France will have their tails of toppling any team while Spain are slowly returning back to old ways. 

Switzerland Form and Team News

You could argue that the Czech Republic caused the upset of the season with their win over the Dutch, But the Swiss have deemed their win over France to be well over the Czech win. Switzerland had to come back from two goals down to equalize which showed the unshakeable grit and determination of this team, eventually winning on penalties. Switzerland had to win the last group game against the Turks which they did quite magnificently beating them three goals to one. Switzerland came undone against a dominant Italy in the second game not being to replicate anything they did during the first game. They drew in the first game against Wales. 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. After the win over World Champions France, Switzerland could be well on the path of glory, they are now facing former champions Spain in the quarterfinal.

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 Spanish side and throw in their hat for contention into the next round.  Seferovic was just unbelievable in the last game against France netting in two goals with the likes of captain Xhaka too playing brilliantly in the middle. Sommer finally saved Mbappe’s penalty to send the French packing. 

Spain Form and Team News

Spain finally turned up against Croatia with full determination to just win and nothing. The Croatians still managed to force extra time after coming back from two goals down to equalize in the dying minutes, but Spain still had enough legs to net in two more goals to eventually win the thrilling round of 16 game. Spain let loose in the last group game against Slovakia and scored the highest number of goals for any team in a match. They netted as many as five goals against a hapless Slovakian defense and could’ve added more given they did not miss the penalty. They qualified with four points and are now facing Switzerland in the Round of eight. Spain did manage to keep producing dismal performances game after game and the second game was nothing different. They had pretty much everything in their control but when it comes to the attacking third, they are flattering big time. Spain had to be content with two draws in the first two group games. They now need to keep doing what they did right in the last game and build on the momentum.  

Former Barcelona superstar manager Luis Enrique had taken over the coaching duties of the Spanish national team some time ago. He has so far been decent with his strategies and team selections. He has a very young side at his hands which can be made into the world-beating side that Spain in the early 2010s’ were in some years time. This team has the potential to reach that point. One major setback is that their talisman captain Sergio Ramos would miss the tournament. Morata finally managed to find the back of the net, Ferran Torres was splendid in the last game with the likes of Azpilicueta and Sarabia. Bosquets along with Pedri and Koke were brilliant in the middle as well.
