Scotland Vs Switzerland Prediction: The Panel's Best Bets, Tips And Preview

Scotland vs Switzerland Prediction 

Scotland endured a nightmare start to their Euro 2024 campaign and their future in the competition hangs in the balance against Switzerland on Wednesday night (8pm, BBC One). 

Steve Clarke’s men were hammered 5-1 by Germany in their Group A opener as Ryan Porteous was dismissed in Munich, suffering their worst Euros defeat. Scotland must pick themselves up as a second defeat in a row would all but end their round of 16 hopes. 

Switzerland can secure their spot in the knockout phase with a win. They were impressive in their opener to see off Hungary and UK betting sites make them firm favourites to see off Scotland at a best-price of 17/20

The Panel took note of the performances of both sides in the first round of fixtures and after looking at the betting odds have made three predictions for the contest in Cologne.

Scotland vs Switzerland Prediction: More Agony For Tartan Army 

Scotland were not ready for the German onslaught last Friday night. Once Florian Wirtz broke the deadlock, Clarke’s side were on the back foot and Porteous' dismissal for a poor challenge on Ilkay Gundogan epitomised their evening. 

Scotland are now in a desperate battle to remain in the competition and given their performance against Germany and form dating back to last year, their prospects are not encouraging. 

Switzerland, on the other hand, produced an eye-catching display in their win over Hungary. Murat Yakin’s side dominated the opening half and scored two good goals before Hungary worked their way back into the contest.

However, Breel Embolo secured the win in stoppage time. The Swiss played with intensity and a cutting edge in the final third that their opponents failed to combat until it was too late.  

Scotland’s defending was abject to say the least and The Panel believe that they will be exposed again by a confident Switzerland outfit. 

Backing an outright Switzerland victory does not have great value on football betting sites, but taking the win for Yakin’s men and pairing it with over 2.5 goals there are odds of 11/5 that are appealing. 

The Panel Tip: Switzerland Win & Over 2.5 Goals – 11/5 Bet365

Scotland vs Switzerland Betting: Duah To Cause Problems 

Kwadwo Duah was surprisingly given the nod in the final third for Switzerland ahead of Embolo and made his mark by scoring the opener against Hungary. 

The 27-year-old entered the tournament off a solid season for Ludogorets Razgrad, where he notched 14 goals in all competitions.  

Duah was part of Switzerland’s fluid performance and will relish the freedom that Scotland afforded Kai Havertz among others in and around the penalty area.

He registered three attempts at goal in 67 minutes, placing two of those efforts on target, including his effort to break the deadlock.

The Panel are optimistic that his pace and movement could trouble the Scotland backline, especially given the changes that will be required from Porteous’ suspension.

They like the value for Duah to register two attempts on target for the second game in a row at a healthy price of 4/1 on betting apps

The Panel Tip: Kwadwo Duah Over 1.5 Shots On Target – 4/1 10Bet
