France were stuck at a draw against Portugal despite their good performance, but still made it through as the top seed in their group.
They will now lock horns with Switzerland in the round of 16, who destroyed Turkey in the final match and qualified as one of the best 3rd-placed teams. The two teams last met in the 2016 EURO, where they played for a goal-less draw in the group stage.
France were really unlucky in their match against Portugal, as they conceded a penalty kick at the 31st minute and Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t fail to convert.
However, it was France’s chance to score from the penalty spot at the end of the first half, when Benzema converted for the 1-1.
At the start of the second half, Benzema scored another goal and gave France the lead, but Cristiano Ronaldo scored another penalty kick at the 60th minute for the final 2-2 draw that left both teams happy.
France are one of the best defensive teams in this tournament, despite conceding twice against Portugal. They need to be careful against Switzerland though, as they have numerous players that have individual quality and could get past their defense.
Switzerland are coming off a really good performance against Turkey, blasting them by a comfortable 3-1.
They were already leading by two goals at the 26th minute, while Turkey cut their lead down to 1 goal at the 62nd minute.
However, Switzerland had their eyes on the prize and kept pushing, creating one scoring chance after the other. They scored another goal at the 68th minute and had numerous chances to increase their lead.
Now up against France, Switzerland know that they will have to be very careful if they want to steal a ticket to the quarter-finals. But with just 2 clean sheets in their last 12 matches in all competitions (against Lithuania and Ukraine), Switzerland should not hope for a defensive match here.
France vs. Switzerland Prediction:
Switzerland’s best bet is to attack early and attack fast against France, otherwise it’s going to be a tough time for them. They cannot base this match on their defense, simply because they don’t have a good defense.
France have a ton of quality up front and they can destroy this defense on any given moment, so Switzerland know that they will have to attack if they want to have a fighting chance.
Taking the Over 2.25 Goals here, in what looks like a 2-1 or 3-1 win for France in my eyes. Also, catching France with -1 is also something to consider here, worst case scenario it sould be a push.
