Germany are well placed to challenge for top spot in their Nations League group and that should inspire them to victory against Switzerland in Cologne.
The visitors are struggling at the bottom of the table, although they did create plenty of chances in a 1-1 Basel draw versus Die Mannschaft last month.
Memories of that entertaining encounter make 21/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game a solid Germany vs Switzerland prediction.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany secured their first ever Nations League victory at the seventh attempt when battling to a 2-1 away win over Ukraine at the Olympic Stadium.
Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter put Die Mannschaft in front in the 20th minute when stabbing in a low cross from Antonio Rudiger.
Ukraine goalkeeper Georgiy Bushchan produced some fine reaction stops, but his handling error allowed Leon Goretzka to head in a second after the break.
Ruslan Malinovskyi’s penalty set up a tense finale, but Germany saw out the closing stages to collect all three points, which moves them two behind Spain in second place.
“I am pleased that we managed to win,” said Joachim Low. “We could have decided matters earlier. We hardly allowed them any chances from open play.”
However, it still wasn’t the most convincing display against a weakened Ukraine team and Germany were very sloppy at the back in last Thursday’s 3-3 friendly draw with Turkey.
Looking at the Germany vs Switzerland odds, we reckon 19/10 for a home win and both teams to score is a good option.
A Look At Switzerland’s Betting Odds
Switzerland made the semi-finals in the inaugural Nations League event but have picked up just one point from three matches this time after a 1-0 defeat in Spain.
Bordeaux defender Loris Benito forced David De Gea to make a fine save early on in Madrid.
However, the Swiss defence gifted La Roja a 14th-minute opener when Sergio Busquets latched onto a stray pass in the penalty area and Mikel Oyarzabal fired past Yann Sommer.
The hosts went close again with a header by Manchester City’s Ferran Torres and Oyarzabal hit the woodwork, but could not conjure a second goal.
Goalkeeper Sommer confessed: “In the first half especially, we played ourselves into difficult situations…It was part of a pattern of us looking unsure of ourselves at the back.”
Switzerland have established a reputation for being hard working and organised in recent years, but trying to implement a new system of playing out from the back is proving troublesome.
Let’s finish off our Germany vs Switzerland betting tips by taking 15/2 for a 2-1 home victory.
Ukraine 1-2 GERMANY – Matthias Ginter, Leon Goretzka
Spain 1-0 SWITZERLAND
Head-to-head: Switzerland 1-1 Germany, Switzerland 5-3 Germany, Switzerland 0-4 Germany, Germany 3-1 Switzerland
