Wales Stats & Form
Wales had a debut at the UEFA European Championship in France five years ago, and the Dragons surprisingly made it to the semifinals. This time, they head to the EURO 2021 as 201.00 underdogs to win it all, and the Dragons hope they can make a few surprises this summer.
Back in the qualifying round for the EURO 2021, Wales finished second in Group E with four wins and a couple of draws and losses, three points behind Croatia and one point ahead of Slovakia. The Dragons had a 10:6 goal difference, and six of their eight contests produced fewer than three goals in total. Over their previous five matches in all competitions, the Dragons have recorded four wins and a loss.
The 31-year-old legendary winger Gareth Bale (90 caps, 33 goals) is the heart and soul of this Wales team. He’ll lead the way for the Dragons this summer, but keep your eyes on midfielder Daniel James (19 caps, 4 goals) who’s scored three goals in 14 games for Manchester United this season. Aaron Ramsey (61 caps, 16 goals) has had problems with different injuries over the last few months, but the 30-year-old midfielder should be ready to play.
Switzerland Stats & Form
The Red Crosses reached the EURO 2021 after finishing atop of the qualifying Group D with 17 points out of eight matches. They recorded five wins, two draws, and a loss along with a 19:6 goal difference, as 14 different players found the back of the net for Switzerland.
Vladimir Petkovic’s team is undefeated in four straight games in all competitions, recording three wins and a draw in that stretch including a terrific 3-0 victory over Ukraine. Switzerland has made it through the group stage only once in its previous five appearances in the European Championship, and the Red Crosses are listed as 67.00 dogs to become champions in 2021.
Switzerland hopes to enter the 2021 in full strength, as all the key players are healthy at the moment. The Red Crosses possess plenty of experience, and their best players are all in their late 20’s besides the 24-year-old Denis Zakaria (31 caps, 3 goals), Nico Elvedi (25 caps, 1 goal), and Breel Embolo (42 caps, 5 goals). Granit Xhaka (92 caps, 12 goals) and Xherdan Shaqiri (89 caps, 23 goals) will continue to drive the Swiss midfield.

Wales vs Switzerland Betting Odds
Switzerland is a slight favorite to win this game with the odds at 2.20 on Bet365 Sportsbook. The Dragons are 3.60 dogs to escape with a win, while a draw pays 3.05. This should be a proper hard-fought battle, so the odds on the Under 2.5 goals sit at 1.57.
Wales vs Switzerland Betting Tip:
This should really be a tight contest between a couple of defensive-minded teams. The stake is huge, so both teams will take it cautiously, looking to defend their net responsibly. Therefore, betting on the Under 2.5 goals in total looks like the best Wales vs. Switzerland betting pick. The odds are not tempting, but we would be shocked with three or more goals on the scoreboard.
