Spain and Switzerland produced one of the most memorable nights in European football, overcoming the Ro16 hurdle. Spain won against a resilient Croatian side in extra time. At the same time, Switzerland stunned the world champions France in a penalty shoot-out to set up an exciting quarter-final encounter in Russia. Here at Betting.co.uk, you can get a gist of the preview and betting tips on this match and other matches of Euro 2020 too.
Switzerland had a mixed start to the campaign with a win, draw and loss each in their 3 group matches. They entered the round of 16 as one of the four best 3rd placed teams in Euro 2020. Coming into the game against France, they were still searching for their 1st victory in knock-out matches at international competition. The Switzerland performance on the night showcased their determination to end this dismal run. They went toe-to-toe with the world champions and won the penalty shoot-out to book a place in the country's first-ever quarter-final. With ever-present Xhedran Shaqiri and now with the duo of Haris Seferovic and Steven Zuber catching form, the Rossocrociati do look a formidable side that can go deep.
Miserable! The only word which flashed across everyone’s mind after watching Spain in their first two group games. They lacked the firepower to score goals and struggled to break down Sweden and Poland, scoring only a single goal in the two matches. But La Roja managed to silence everyone, scoring five goals in back-to-back matches against Slovakia and Croatia, the first time this has happened in a European Championship. And now they fight for a place in the semi-finals, the country's first in almost a decade and are one of the favourites in the Euro 2020 Winner Odds. Though Spain have exciting talent in Ferran Torres, Pablo Sarabia and Pedri, to name a few, they still rely on Alvaro Morata as their main man.
The Spanish boys have found their scoring boots and head into this quarter-final tie as the favourites among bookmakers to progress into the semi-finals. Almost all the football predictions and betting odds platforms have Spain as favourites to win this match. 888Sport are offering La Roja an odds of 7/10. Even after a historical performance in the R16, the Swisse are not the favourites against Spain and hold an odds of 43/10 to register a win. A draw in regulation playing time looks highly unlikely, with the stalemate having an odds of 14/5 in 888Sport. Alvaro Morata is a very good bet to score at any time in the match, being offered an odds of 13/10 to bag a goal in this quarter-final.
Switzerland vs Spain Euro 2020 will be an exciting contest, as both teams saw out a brilliant clash in their respective Round of 16 fixtures. Switzerland, yet again, are the underdogs here as they take on a reignited Spanish side, who have finally found their mojo towards the business end of the tournament. However, Switzerland are a side not to be taken lightly after their performance in the last game against the World Champions. It looks like a close contest is on the cards, with the previous four meetings between these two sides averaging just over a goal per match. Hence we are going for a -1 Asian Handicap for Spain at 11/10 offered by 888Sport.
