Scotland – Switzerland betting tip, prediction & odds Euro 19.06.2024

Scotland Switzerland betting tip & the best odds for matchday 2 of Group A

Will some groups be decided on the second matchday? The last teams have only just played their opening match at the European Championships and we are already ringing in the hot phase with the Scotland Switzerland betting tip in Group A – the DFB team will also be watching on TV!

The Swiss national team have made a successful start to the tournament and could book their ticket to the knockout phase with a second win if Germany can put in a convincing and victorious performance three hours earlier.

Can the Nati build on their performance from the first match? The game against Scotland kicks off on Wednesday evening, against the very nation that started this European Championship with a 1:5 defeat against Germany, including a sending-off.

The Scotland Schweoz odds at our bookmakers are correspondingly high, with the Nati averaging odds of 1.85 to 4.55. Knowing full well, of course, that another three points could mean an early place in the round of 16.

In my Scotland-Switzerland prediction, I now take a look at all the details of the match. Will the Scots go down again or will the national team take it easy?

Let’s find out together and also see why I’m betting on “both teams score” despite the odds of 2!

The bookmakers’ Scotland – Switzerland

After the Scots took a real bath in the first match, they must also accept the role of underdogs in the second game. Should the underdog win on Wednesday, the odds would jump to an average of 4.55.

Switzerland, on the other hand, put in a composed performance against Hungary. Now that they have advanced to the round of 16 early, the players are likely to be suitably motivated. This explains the odds of 1.85 for a win.

A draw would probably only help the Swiss to pursue their European Championship goals. In the Scotland Switzerland odds, the value of a draw averages 3.70.

Scotland vs Switzerland odds: Where are the highest Scotland vs Switzerland odds?

Of course, you can simply place a win bet on Switzerland, but of course our bookmakers also offer one or two boosts to increase the odds.

Let’s take a look at Bet365 and see that it’s really worth betting on a Swiss victory in both halves of the match. If the national team wins both halves, the bookies boost the odds to a strong 6.00.

At the same time, you can also bet on Breel Embolo scoring the first goal of the game, as he was responsible for the last goal against Hungary. The odds boost spits out a 6.50 for you here.

Oddset, on the other hand, thought: We’re not entirely happy with the defensive performances of both teams. A Swiss victory with goals on both sides? That is boosted here and provides odds of 4.40.

Analysis: Scotland vs Switzerland

Once before, the Swiss national team has reached the quarter-finals of a European Championship, but can they do it again? The national team vacillates between a world-class team and one that can’t really categorize itself.

Three years ago, the national team was extremely unlucky to fail in the round of the best eight against Spain, before which the world champions were knocked out by France. History is of no use to the Swiss, who are starting from scratch in 2024

And with the knowledge that qualification was anything but brilliant. Although the group with Romania, Kosovo, Israel, Andorra and Belarus was anything but particularly challenging.

Four wins, five draws and one defeat, leaving them five points behind Romania at the end. One win from the last seven qualifying matches was the nation’s record as they bid farewell to 2023

The impression from the test matches before the start of the tournament was good. 1:1 against Austria, 4:0 against Estonia, 1:0 against Ireland and 0:0 against Denmark, unbeaten and with only one goal conceded, the team traveled to Germany.

The Red & Whites are not considered co-favorites, but they are determined to finish in one of the top two places in Group A. The opener was successful, but Switzerland have yet to shine in terms of play

Analysis of odds

I can’t really imagine that Scotland can spring a surprise. Switzerland seem to be too settled, so I would clearly back the Nati in the 1×2 bets.

Both teams have started the tournament relatively offensively. Since the Scottish defense is anything but solid, I would again consider a bet for Wednesday that revolves around goals, “Over 2.5 goals” seems realistic to me.

I’m also in favor of a result bet in this game. Switzerland only put the lid on it against Hungary shortly before the end, so I would bet on a 2:1 for the favorite at odds of 8.50.

Scotland vs. Switzerland: Will Swiss efficiency win?

Scotland won 3:1 against Hungary, but the third goal was only scored in stoppage time. In a very even match, the attacking subtleties were to be found on the Swiss side, so the decisive moments were just right.

Kwadwo Duah, Michel Aebischer and Breel Embolo were responsible for the three goals. Can one of the trio also net against Scotland? In any case, duels against the Bravehearts have been in short supply in the recent past.

The last time they faced each other was in a friendly in 2006, which the Swiss won 3-1. The last competitive match? That also took place as part of a European Championship and was played in 1996

Scotland going down again?

The Scots won 1:0 back then, also in Group A. So from a purely historical point of view, I can’t give you any facts about what game awaits us on Wednesday.

Scotland, who have never made it past the European Championship group stage, are already on the brink of elimination. The Scotland Switzerland odds also see the Bravehearts as underdogs because the game against Germany went completely off the rails.

The score was already 0:3 at half-time, and on top of that Ryan Porteous was sent off with a red card and will now be missing on Wednesday. A single shot was fired towards the German goal, but none directly into the box

Naturally, Scotland were considered underdogs from the outset, but not everyone expected such a weak performance. The one goal against the DFB team? That was also scored by Antonio Rüdiger.

Even before the start of the European Championships, it was clear that things would not work out, especially defensively. 0:4 against the Netherlands, 0:1 against Northern Ireland or 2:2 against Finland, the Scots conceded far too many goals.

It’s hard to believe that they kept up with Spain in last year’s European Championship qualifiers, losing 2-0 on one occasion and even celebrating a 1-0 win on the other.

What makes Scotland strong is above all the home crowd. Although many fans have traveled to Germany, that alone does not make the European Championship games home games.

Incidentally, there have been exactly two victories in Scotland’s European Championship history, one of which was in 1996, the aforementioned 1:0 against Switzerland. It’s a long shot, of course, but: If there was a 1-0 win now, the odds would be in double figures

My Scotland Switzerland betting tip:

Is the 2024 European Championship too big for Scotland? The Bravehearts had no chance against Germany, remained pale offensively and conceded a lot defensively.

Switzerland got off to a 3:1 start against Hungary, only winning the game relatively late on. In my opinion, therefore, the Swiss are synonymous with relatively close results, including in the qualifiers.

This leads me to opt for a classic among the tips. As I expect the Scots to put up a great fight and Switzerland are not completely solid in defense, my prediction is: Both teams will score!
