England v Switzerland – Euro2024 Quarter Final Predictions & Betting Tips

Düsseldorf Arena (Düsseldorf) 06 July - 17:00
Recommended tip Switzerland Wins

After three woeful group matches, England fans were praying that Gareth Southgate would come to his senses for the Round of 16 match against Slovakia and change things around a little.

Unfortunately, it was a case of ‘same old same old’ once again, and there is no getting away from the fact that England should count themselves lucky to be facing Switzerland on Saturday.

Switzerland, on the other hand, fully deserve their place in this stage of the competition, they have been outstanding throughout the tournament and their victory over Italy in the last match proved that this Swiss team knows exactly what they are doing.

Odds and Predictions

Looking at the odds for this match, we have found it surprising that England are favourites, but we are not complaining.

The odds on an England win are 2.20, Switzerland are priced at 3.80 and the draw is available at 3.0.

If Gareth Southgate has the courage to drop some of the players who seem to start every match regardless of their form, an England win is more than possible, but the likelihood is that he won’t, in which case the first of our tips has to be a Switzerland win at 3.80.

As for the scoreline, 1 – 2 is our choice and at odds of 15.0, we feel that is a sound bet.

To cover our bases, the last one of our predictions is in the ‘To score at any time’ market and Cole Palmer is at odds of 4.75.

There is a provision on this recommendation, though, and that is that Cole Palmer must start the match for the bet to stand, so if you are placing the bet in advance, make sure you tick the ‘void if player does not start’ box.

Expected Line Ups

Most pundits believe that Gareth Southgate has not only made mistakes in his team selection but also in his training sessions because many of the players don’t seem to know what they are meant to be doing.

Luke Shaw is a prime example, he hasn’t played for Manchester United for a long time due to injury, yet he was included in the squad, and guess what, he hasn’t featured yet due to injury!

Let’s hope he starts this game along with Cole Palmer.

England (4-2-3-1): Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Marc Guehi, Kieran Trippier; Declan Rice, Kobbie Mainoo; Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden; Harry Kane.

Switzerland (3-4-2-1): Yann Sommer; Fabian Schär, Manuel Akanji, Ricardo Rodríguez; Silvan Widmer, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, Michel Aebischer; Ruben Vargas, Dan Ndoye; Kwadwo Duah.

How Far Will These Teams Progress in the Tournament?

All England fans are hoping that things change for this match, but we have been saying that since the second match in the tournament.

If there is a shake-up in the starting eleven, England will stand a chance, but if not, this Switzerland side will prove to be too good for them, and it will be the end of the road for England and their manager.
