The Czech Republic
The Czech Republic is a regular participant in European championships, but they have not been able to qualify for the World Cup since 2006. In the 2022 qualifiers, the Red and Blue had a good chance of success. They finished only third in the group, but made it through the knockout stages, but lost in the semi-finals to Sweden in extra time, 0:1. In late March, Jaroslav Šilhavý's charges had a friendly fixture with Welsh but the opponents could not determine the winner - 1:1.
Switzerland is having a great time. At Euro 2020 they managed got out of the group and outplayed the reigning world champions France in the last 16 - 4:3. Then the team almost broke the quarterfinal barrier, but still in a penalty shootout they lost to the Spaniards - 1:2. After that, the Red and Whites had a change of head coach, Vladimir Petkovic was replaced by Murat Yakin who did not worsen the situation. The Swiss were excellent at qualifiers taking first place in their group and leaving behind a formidable Italian team.
Expert Betting Tips
Switzerland is currently one of the strongest teams in Europe, as evidenced by Euro 2020 and the qualifiers. The Czech team can at best be considered the average one so they are unlikely to win. The stats of their head-to-head encounters speaks in favor of the Czechs, but they all took place a long time ago. We bet on the victory of Switzerland.
Switzerland has played bright and productively in recent years, but after the arrival of Murat Yakin as head coach the situation has changed dramatically. In the six official meetings only 12 goals were scored (2.00 on average). Besides, the Red and Whites won two games over Lithuania and Bulgaria - 4:0 each. The Czech national team is much more organized and reliable in terms of defense, so the best option for the prediction seems to be a total under 2.5.
Breel Embolo is in great shape. He scored nine goals for Borussia Mönchengladbach last season, his personal best in the Bundesliga. He was particularly productive in the closing stages, scoring five goals in the last seven rounds. For the Swiss national team, the 25-year-old also plays very actively, with four goals in the previous six meetings, so it is worth betting on the goal of Breel Embolo.
