The Baku Olympic Stadium will host Wales versus Switzerland on Saturday 12th June at 14:00. This can be viewed on BBC. Can the dragons reach the semi-finals again, like they did in 2016?
We’ll give you our thoughts below, as well as our tips and the latest betting odds available. A loss in this game could mean curtains for any chances of these teams surviving past group A. How will this affect the game?
Wales aren’t the force they were back in 2016. But with Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey anything is still possible. With the speculation of Bale retiring, will this fire him up? Bale is 23/5 odds with 888 to bag the first goal in this game. Wales have netted an average of 0.75 goals per game in the last four meetings with the Swiss side. Wales know the Swiss side is collectively the better side. We think Wales may opt to try to counter the Swiss attack and Bale could be the hitman for the job and is 41/20 odds with 888 to score anytime.
Switzerland will know they have the best overall team. They’ll also be desperate not to lose this game. They’ll know Bale and Co. may be up for taking chances on the counterattack. So, will this encourage the Swiss to defend or attack?
Harris Seferovic is the slight market leader for the goalscoring markets, followed by frontman Embolo and Gavranovic. Gavranovic has already netted four goals during the friendlies so far this year. He’s built plenty of confidence with Dinamo Zagreb, banging-in 16 goals from 21 starts. Gavranovic is 9/4 with 888 to score anytime. For confirmed team news view our Euro 2020 News and Updates page.
Outright Euro 2020 Winner Odds see the Swiss priced at 70/1 and Wales a whopping 170/1 with 888sport! These two teams have not played since 2011, so comparisons are limited. We can only consider that the Swiss have done very well in their latest Euro 2020 outings. Switzerland are understandably the 6/5 favourites with 888, while Wales are 29/10 to win. A draw is another possibility, priced at 2/1. This is a tough call, weighing-up if the Swiss hold value at their 6/5 odds? Other options could be a goalscorer bet, an over/under bet, or the option of a both teams to score bet.
Logic would state that the Swiss’ latest good form would make them the wisest team to bet on. But we think there's a possibility that Wales will look to counter the Swiss attack. So, we thought that the 6/5 odds on the “both teams to score” market [BTTS], offered by 888 sport, was probably the better option, in terms of value. We don’t feel there will be much in this game regarding the number of goals scored. But the combination of the superior Swiss side and the Welsh counter may point to the BTTS bet being an option worth considering.

If it is true that Bale is retiring soon, it would be a delight to see him go out with a Euro 2020 bang! We think this game may start off slow, before any sparks fly.
