Two teams that will fight hard for one of the qualification spots in Group A will lock horns in the second match of this tournament, when Wales will lock horns with Switzerland.
These two teams will know the outcome of the Turkey vs Italy match before they play, and Italy are expected to win. Should that be the case, if any of these two teams win, they will automatically have a great shot in qualifying.
Wales did not make a very good start in the 2020 EURO Qualifiers but were great when it mattered the most and managed to qualify as 2nd in that group. It was a tight call though, as Croatia had 17 points, Wales had 14, Slovakia had 13 and Hungary had 12.
Wales managed to get 4 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws, scoring 10 goals and conceding 6 in the process.
6 of their 8 matches in the EURO Qualifiers had Under 2.5 Goals, with a total of just 2 goals per match. The same thing happened in the Nations League right after, where Wales remained undefeated (3 wins, 1 draw), with 3 of those 4 matches going Under 2.5 Goals.
Wales made a great run in the 2016 edition, where they beat Belgium to reach the semi-finals but were eliminated by France. Now Gareth Bale and his company are back, bringing some very physical game and a very pacey front duo. Bale is expected to do the heavy lifting for Wales after having a really good season with Tottenham.
Switzerland are one of those multi-cultural teams with a lot of players having multi-national background. They did a great job in the EURO Qualifiers, finishing at the top of their group that also featured Denmark, Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar.
Switzerland had 5 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws, scoring 19 goals and conceding 6 in return.
They struggled in the Nations League, finishing 3rd in a Group that also featured Spain, Germany and Ukraine, with 1 win, 2 losses and 3 draws. But they started the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with a couple of wins and looked really good in their 3 friendly matches prior to the EUROs.
With a roster of players from Liverpool (Shaqiri), Arsenal (Xhaka), Gladbach (Sommer) and Seferovic (Benfica) among others, they have a great core of players that could easily leave a mark in this competition.
Beating Wales in the opening match is a MUST, while failing to do so would spell trouble really soon.
Wales vs Switzerland Prediction:
Wales are characterized by a strong backline that doesn’t allow too many goals, a solid midfield and two very pacey forwards. They do not destroy any opponent, but do not get destroyed either. Their matches are going to be very tight.
Switzerland have not been as good defensively, but they have a lot more options to rely on, especially at the bench. They have a better offensive line, at least on paper, and will not rely on their defence so much.
The totals line is set at exactly 2 goals, which might seem OK for a Wales match, but Switzerland are not like that. This match could easily finish with little or no goals at all, but I think that Switzerland’s style will open this match up.
