The other half of Group A will lock horns on Saturday, when Wales will face Switzerland. The two teams will already know the result of the other match of the group, so that’s another reason to fight for the 3 points. Wales and Switzerland will fight for one of the qualification spots, and there is a good chance these two cancel each other out.
Switzerland will have a tough time against Wales in this match, but they are theoretically their easiest opponents in this group. The Swiss team consists of players who are scattered throughout Europe’s biggest leagues, like the Premier League and the Bundesliga. They were really good in the qualifiers for the EURO, winning their Group with 5 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws (against Denmark, Georgia, Ireland and Gibraltar). Moreover, they looked really good in the World Cup Qualifiers and their warm-up friendlies prior to the EUROs.
Wales are once again going to come to a tournament with their true grit, physical style of play and pacey attack. Tottenham’s Gareth Bale had a really good season and is looking to carry that form over to the EUROs. Him and Manchester United’s James are two very pacey players who will be Wales focal points in the offense. However, it’s their defense that has been impressive in recent tournaments. They only conceded 1 goal in their 4 Nations League matches, and just 6 goals in their 8 EURO Qualifiers.
Free Soccer Pick:
Switzerland have a slightly deeper roster than Wales, but roster doesn’t always win matches. Wales can play great defense at times, but Switzerland have a lot of quality players that can threaten the Welsh defense. The Over 2 Goals might be a good option here, but the Draw looks very juicy at +200.
