Switzerland v Denmark Euro 2020 betting preview and tips
There’s an intriguing clash taking place at St Jakob-Park in Basel, with Switzerland clashing with Denmark and these are the top two-ranked teams in Group D.
Switzerland were one of the shining lights in the Nations League, scoring a bucketload of goals to finish top of a section that also included Belgium, with the Swiss coming from two goals down in the final game against the Red Devils to win 5-2.
They also put six past Iceland in their other home match in the Nations League, with the Swiss winning in Reykjavik and they need to be respected as far as a European nation is concerned.
There will be no Xherdan Shaqiri who has withdrawn from the squad due to a groin injury, although Granit Xhaka, Steven Zuber and Denis Zakaria offer plenty of quality in the midfield department.
The Switzerland team are also highly experienced in defence and they could have the beating of a Denmark team who continue to rely heavily on the attacking instinct of Christian Eriksen.
However, Lasse Schone is a wily operator enjoying a fantastic season with Ajax, while Thomas Delaney enjoyed a fantastic 2018 World Cup and plays at a high level with Dortmund.
The Danes have a brilliant collective spirit and Kasper Schmeichel is doing a grand job between the sticks, while Simon Kjaer marshals the team excellently and we’re leaning towards the visitors winning this clash.
With the Swiss missing some influential players, we think that Denmark are capable of landing a victory in this game and setting themselves on the way to qualifying for Euro 2020.
With the Republic of Ireland also in this group, it’s imperative that both teams try and get a positive result, although the Danes came through their Nations League in comfortable fashion, outclassing Wales in both of their games.
