Euro 2024: Switzerland vs Germany Preview

Switzerland v Germany | Sunday 23 June | Deutsche Bank Park | 21:00

This could be a lot closer than many people suspect…Germany is worthy favourites, but the robust approach of the Swiss might ask this German defence-worthy questions!

To Win (90 mins)
Switzerland 37/10
Draw 3/1
Germany 13/20


Switzerland made the perfect start in this tournament against Hungary, beating them 3-1 in Cologne and then consolidated that performance against Scotland at the same ground. The Swiss have settled nicely in this tournament, a lot has been said about their reliance on older players, but with the likes of Kwadwo Duah and Dan Ndoye coming to the fore – the future is securely bright!

Interestingly for me, the Swiss have shown they are happy to press the ball really early and look to disrupt their opponent’s last line. I wonder whether they will want to maintain this approach and take the initiative against Germany as well.

There is no doubt that the attacking three for Switzerland are tremendously exciting, they are then further supported by their wingbacks and if Germany allow easy entry into their final third, I think they could pay a hefty price.


The host nation has shown a real intent so far in this competition. Going back to their first game, they demolished the Scots and did so with five different scorers on the day! Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, Kai Havertz, Niclas Fullkrug and Emre Can all managed to get on the goal sheet.

Julian Nagelsmann might have had reservations about the intensity in their midweek game against Hungary, but as they push on to the business end of the tournament and continue to settle the inherent nerves of playing the European Championship at home, I think the Germans will just get stronger and stronger.

Insofar as this game is concerned, much like my position with Germany’s first game against Scotland – you have a powerful attacking line coming up against a defensive line which tends to give and take at times…

Prediction: Germany + Both teams to score: Yes (51/20)

The attacking threat of both these teams is undeniable, the goals market for me is a banker bet for every multiple ticket taken this weekend! The only reason I give Germany the slight advantage is the freedom with which they will likely play this game.  Get on!
