Italy vs Switzerland: Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips

Italy seeks a second win at EURO 2020, while on the other side, Switzerland hopes to stay unbeaten. Check out our preview and pick for this event.

Italy won the opening match of the EURO 2020, starting its adventure positively. On the other side, the Swiss team had a nice chance to take all three points in their first appearance but failed to use it. That puts them in a nasty position before the battle with one of the biggest favorites for winning the tournament, as they need to win, or at least to stay unbeaten. On the other side, with three points from this match, Italy will probably secure first place in Group A.

Italy

The Italians were clinical in the attack against Turkey, scoring three times and providing numerous chances. Even if Demiral didn’t hit his own net, everything on the pitch suggested that the Italians would eventually win the game. 

Ciro Immobile was efficient as always, with Lazio’s striker scoring a goal and delivering an assist, being the focal point of Italy’s attack. The experienced striker is working perfectly with Lorenzo Insigne, and we are going to say again – this duo is underestimated a lot. 

As for the backline, you saw how Chiellini and Bonucci work together. The “old guys” are flawlessly synchronized. Didn’t we say that they have 70 years combined? The match against Turkey was the 28th in a row in which Italy didn’t lose, and the ninth straight with them keeping clean sheets. 

Switzerland

Instead of finishing off Wales after their first goal, the Swiss team stopped, trying to calm down the game, and allowing the rivals to get back on the horse. It was one big mistake made by their head coach Vladimir Petkovic. 

Though, the players on the field need to take their share of the blame. They missed at least two good chances to score while leading, either because of their indecisiveness or poor assessment, which eventually came back hard at them. Once they turned up the tempo near the end, it was already late to change anything.

Switzerland didn’t lose for eight matches, posting six wins and two draws. Yesterday’s one was only the third during that stretch.

Italy vs Switzerland Head to Head

Even though these countries share a mutual border, they haven’t played too often in recent years. The last contest was in 2010, a friendly international match, which ended 1-1. Interestingly in the past 22 years, Italy and Switzerland met five times, and we saw a draw on four occasions. In the remaining game, Italy won, 1-2.

Italy vs Switzerland Pick

Our first thought here is low efficiency. Italy won’t chase to reach three points at all costs but will patiently wait for the rival’s mistake. Even with a point here, they are controlling the situation in the group. Switzerland, too won’t attack aggressively because they know that the same outcome leaves them in contention for the knockout stage. So all this points towards low efficiency.

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
