This will be the second game for both of these squads and the results were predictable. Switzerland got a victory over Albania in their opener while Romania lost to host France. Both were one goal games but that doesn’t always mean it was close. The Swiss are looking to be perfect heading into their final match against the French while Romania might be content with a respectable draw. Different motivations for sure.
The Swiss may have benefitted from a shorthanded Albania squad (they had a player sent off in the first off) but the result would have likely been the same even if they had been at full strength. Romania is not expected to be much tougher. There is not a lot of history between the two. They have split two matches.
Given that they had the man advantage for more than half of the game you would figure the Swiss would have controlled the game more aggressively but they were happy with the victory. They had some chances but did not press the action.
The lone Swiss goal scored in their opener was by Fabian Schar. Given that is just the second goal of the year scored by the defender I think it qualifies as an unlikely source as the lone goal in a game in this tournament.
The Swiss are considered to be in the middle of terms of rating of teams for this tournament while Romania is near the bottom. They might not have the luxury of the extra man the way they did against Albania but they should need it either.
Romania has the unenviable task of taking on host France in the first game of the tournament. I am not saying they gave the hosts a layup to start the contest on purpose but it would have taken near perfection from Romania to win under those circumstances.
In fact you have to give Romania a little credit. They scored less than 10 minutes after getting down to France and nearly held out for the draw. Perhaps they should be given more consideration than they have been.
Against France Bogdan Stancu got the only goal. He may not be a household name but he is one of Romania’s better goal scorers. He is streaky too. Twice in Turkish league play he had three game goal scoring streaks.
In terms of competition the Romanian side definitely could be more ready than the Swiss coming into this one. At the very least they will not have to worry about the crowd influencing play and the butterflies could be gone.
Free Romania vs. Switzerland Euro 2016 Prediction:
The Swiss are the favourite for good reason but I think we should have seen more from them in their opening round match. If this Romania team is better than we know they might not be ready for the challenge.
This is a tough one to call. I am tempted to go for the upset but in soccer you have those pesky draws to worry about. The good thing is that they come with a pretty good payoff.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Draw
I think that Romania will stun the Swiss and get out to an early lead in the first half. The question is what will they do with it. So many teams sit on a lead and try to ride it out.
My hunch is that they are going to make the conservative mistake of playing cautiously as this might be their only hope for some points in the Tournament. They will get one but it will be a mistake when they yield a Swiss goal in the final 20 minutes.
