Switzerland will be looking to bounce back from an away loss to Ukraine when hosting Germany in the second round of Nations League fixtures.
Die Mannschaft kicked off their campaign with a hard-fought draw against Spain in Stuttgart after letting slip a lead deep into stoppage time.
We think this has all the making of a close contest and 13/5 for a stalemate at St Jakob-Park is our first Switzerland vs Germany prediction.
A Look At Switzerland’s Betting Odds
Switzerland looked the stronger side for large parts of their opening clash with Ukraine in Lviv, physically out-muscling their opponents.
However, Haris Seferovic’s strike came in between goals for Andriy Yarmolenko and Oleksandr Zinchenko which saw the Swiss return home empty handed.
“We dominated, played with intensity and pressed up front, but we were not clinical enough in the final stages of attack,” said Vladimir Petkovic.
Switzerland reached the last four of the inaugural staging of this competition, before topping their Euro 2020 qualifying group ahead of Denmark and Republic of Ireland.
That tells us this is a solid outfit which should not be written off on the back of one slightly misleading result.
Let’s add 15/4 for a score draw to our Switzerland vs Germany betting tips.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany, who disappointed in the first Nations League competition, looked on course to beat Spain after Chelsea recruit Timo Werner netted on 51 minutes.
However, La Roja’s pressure in the latter stages finally paid off when Jose Luis Gaya levelled things up in the fifth minute of time added on.
Joachim Low commented: “Of course we finished a little bit sad, but we have seen lots of positive things.”
Both camps expressed the opinion that this was a high-quality affair and we are inclined to agree with them.
However, Germany are still looking for their first victory in this tournament following three draws and two defeats.
Taking odds-on for them to break that hoodoo in Basel is not for us and 25/4 for a 1-1 stalemate is preferred from the Switzerland vs Germany odds.
Ukraine 2-1 SWITZERLAND – Haris Seferovic
GERMANY 1-1 Spain – Timo Werner
Head-to-head: Switzerland 5-3 Germany, Switzerland 0-4 Germany, Germany 3-1 Switzerland, Switzerland 0-2 Germany
