The EURO round of 16 was concluded with quite a few absences, and Switzerland caused one of them.
They will now face another big team in the quarter-finals, as they will lock horns against Spain on Friday.
Spain almost suffered an upset themselves against Croatia but still managed to get the job done in extra time. Let’s have a look at the first quarter-final of the 2020 EURO.
Switzerland’s emotions were really fluid in their match against France, and for a good reason.
First, they took the lead at the 15th minute with Seferovic, and then they missed a penalty kick at that would have given them a two-goal lead.
However, France managed to come back and saw Karim Benzema score twice in a 2-minute span to give France the lead, while Pogba made it 3-1 at the 75th minute. But the Swiss hadn’t said their final word, scoring two late goals to force an extra time, and eventually the penalty shoot-out.
Kylian Mbappe missed the final penalty kick, and Switzerland were ecstatic about their first ever presence in the quarter-finals of the EUROs. An important factor here is the absence of midfielder Granit Xhaka who accumulated two yellow cards and is suspended for this match, leaving a huge gap in the Swiss midfield.
Spain were also involved in a mouth-watering match in the round of 16 against Croatia, but eventually won and forced their way through to the quarter-finals.
A bad mistake in the defense led to an own goal at the 20th minute, but Spain pulled back even before the first half was over.
They went on to score two more goals (Azplilicueta 57th and Torres 77th) to take a two-goal lead, but here it was the Croatians who scored two late goals to force the match to go to extra time.
But Spain were much better there, scoring two more goals (Morata and Oyarzabal) for the final 5-3 win. Spain’s offense looked choky in the first two matches of the EUROs but they’ve scored 10 goals in their last two matches.
Switzerland vs. Spain Prediction:
The two teams last met in the UEFA Nations League back in late 2020, where Spain won by 1-0 at home before a 1-1 draw in Switzerland. Switzerland will be missing key man Xhaka in the midfield and that is a huge blow here.
Spain are coming off two very strong matches (at least offensively) and their offense looks reanimated after scoring just 1 goal against Slovakia and Poland combined. I like Spain to catch -0.75 here, while the Over 2.5 Goals is also a really good deal, with both offensive lines literally on fire right now.
