Wales vs Switzerland – Euro 2020 Betting Tips

Wales are the host in this Group A fixture against Switzerland. Baku Olympic Stadium would act as the host stadium situated in Baku on the 12th of June 2021 at 18:30 IST. Switzerland have a winning streak to keep while Wales have an objective to break the shackles they are presently in, both meet in a tempting Group A clash. 

Wales Form and Team News

Wales are coming into this year’s EURO with a second-place finish in the qualification rounds. They were part of Group E with the likes of Croatia being the only real threat in the group. Wales after the eight games they played managed to win just four games, and in the process scoring 14 points, just one point of the ousted third-placed Slovakia who got 13 points. Wales did manage to concede the least number of goals while also scoring a comparatively lesser number of goals as well. They are going into the EURO 2020 with an inconsistent recent record, they’ve lost two and won two in the last five games while drawing the last game. Wales can be a threatening outfit given they produce the type of football the squad plays in club football.

Coach Robert Page will need to regroup the squad quickly which should reflect on the team’s performance to have any chance in the tricky Group A. Former Real Madrid, present Tottenham striker Gareth Bale along with Cardiff city forward Moore are the only two recognised strikers for Wales going into the tournament. Daniel James, Ramsey, Wilson, Brooks and Levitt would need to fill in as the attacking front as well given the lack of forwards in the team. Ampadu, Williams, Ben Davies, Rodon and Mepham would probably constitute the defence line. Either Danny Wad or Wayne Hennessey are expected to keep the goal for the Welsh.

Switzerland Form and Team News

Switzerland qualified as the number one team from Group D with 17 points gathered from eight games played. They won as many as five games to go with just a loss. They also drew a couple of games in the process. Group D was a relatively easy group for the Swiss consisting of Denmark who finished as the second team to qualify, Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltor too in the ranks. The Swiss are presently on a five-match winning streak coming into the all-important EURO competition. Even though the opponents in these five games were smaller teams, the confidence gained through winning the matches would go a long way in increasing the Swiss confidence. They are part of a tricky Group A consisting of Italy, Wales and the Turks. Switzerland given their present form are surely expected to qualify nonetheless.

Coach Petkovic after the seven-match hiccup where the Swiss were not able to win any games has managed to turn around the form and turn them into the winning machine they are now. He would hope that the team carries the momentum into the EURO’s and go a long way into the tourney. Benfica regular Seferovic, M’gladbach forward Embolo along with Mario Gavranovic from the forward line for the Swiss. Shaqiri, Xhaka, Zakaria, and Freuler are expected to fill the midfield while Akanji, Ricardo Rodriguez and Nico Elvedi along with Mbabu and Schar are the defenders. Yann Sommer is most likely to keep the goal.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 Both teams are evenly matched on paper with just a slight difference in terms of their FIFA rankings. Switzerland starts as favourites in this fixture due to the above reason while also having a decent recent record compared to that of Wales. Wales on the other hand would hope for a turn in fortunes and try finishing in the top-2 at the end of the group stage in the comparatively tough Group A.

Tip 1: Asian Total Goals over 2

Switzerland in the last three matches has played out two matches wherein the number of total goals scored in the match was over 2. All three games coming as part of the International Friendlies played.  Playing away, Four of their last five games have had the total goals to be over 2. Wales being the defensive team they are even with the likes of Bale and co. in their ranks have not been able to score the number of goals they would expect to score. But in the last five games across competitions, they still had three games where the total goals were more than 2. One of the last two head to head games between the two teams have also turned out to have over 2 goals in total. So it’s quite likely that the match would have over 2 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be over 2 is 1.83.

Tip 2: Wales to Score Over 0.5 Goals

Five of the seven matches that Wales have been part of across competitions like Intl. Friendlies, Nations League and World Cup Qualifiers have had them scoring over 0.5 goals. In the last five matches that Wales have played the home side, Four matches have seen them satisfying the above condition. The last two head to head matches between the two sides i.e. Wales and Switzerland have also seen Wales scoring over 0.5 goals. While Switzerland has also conceded over 0.5 goals in two of their last three games across competitions. Playing away too, the Swiss have conceded over 0.5 goals in all their last five matches. So it’s quite likely that Wales will go on to score over 0.5 goals in the Sunday fixture. The odds for Wales to score over 0.5 goals according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.55.


A very edgy game on the cards with two equally matched sides on paper meeting in the group A fixture. Both teams would hope to get off to a winning start with the defence being the most probable factor likely to determine which way the match is going to swing. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Asian Total Goals over 2 @1.83
  2. Wales to score over 0.5 goals @ 1.55
