Betting tip EURO 2016: Switzerland - France
Sunday, 19.06.2016 at 21:00 o’clock
Duel of the neighbour countries
The duel between the host France and the Switzerland could be the duel about winning the group but only when both teams win their first two matches. France is the favourite in this match although they stand under a lot of pressure. Kick-off on the 19th of June is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of Switzerland
Even when Switzerland had some troubles at the beginning of the qualification, in the end they have shown a sovereign performance. At the first match against Albania the performance could have been better. The best player at the swiss team was goalkeeper Yann Sommer. Especially at the inner defence the team of Trainer Vladimir Petkovic had some real troubles. This could be really dangerous against the lively team from France which plays very offensive. The currently matches against their neighbours haven’t been in their favours. Out of six matches France has won three times and three matches have ended in a drawn. Beside the victory against Albania they also have won the last test match right before the EURO. This was against Moldavia and the score has been 2:1. To succeed against France they need to improve their defence as well as using their goal chances.
Current performance of France
The pressure of the hosts was very high before the first match against Romania. Not even the whole country wanted to see a victory, the whole soccer world was expecting a victory. However this shouldn’t be that easy as we have seen. Thanks to a header goal from Olivier Giroud and a dream goal of Dimitri Payet closely before the end they have been able to win the match. Maybe this sets new energy free because they could stand the pressure at the first match. However the „Equipe Tricolore“ still has to worry about their defence. That their central defender Raphael Varane wasn’t able to play against Romania was clearly visible at their performance. Even when the player from Real Madrid is very young he could have given the team some solidity. As we could see France didn’t show a good defence but neither has done the Switzerland. Nonetheless the self-esteem from the team of Didier Deschamps is fine. France is unbeaten since four matches. Before they have won against Romania they also have won against Scotland (3:0), Cameroon (3:2) und and Russia (4:2). With Didier Deschamps they have at least a trainer who knows how to celebrate titles in his own country because he joined the world championship in 1998.
Betting tip for this match
At the offensive play France has more quality in his squad. At the defence both teams had some trouble. Especially Switzerland acted not very sovereign and has missed some chances. The weak of the defence will decide about victory or defeat in this match. Our tip for this match: tip 2.
