Switzerland vs France Team News
Coach Vladimir Petkovic has no fresh injury worries ahead of the France game, but he could make some changes to the team that faced Romania. Breel-Donald Embolo came as a substitute and produced a fine display in the 1-1 draw against Romania and he could be recalled to the starting line-up. As a result, Haris Seferovic, who has been playing below expectations at Euro 2016 finals, should drop to the bench. Vladimir Petkovic should stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation.
France coach Didier Deschamps rested Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann against Albania, but the duo should start against Switzerland. Kingsley Coman and Anthony Martial are both likely to drop to the bench. Didier Deschamps has no other injury concerns ahead of the Switzerland game. It is well known that Raphael Varane and Jeremy Mathieu were forced to withdraw with injury.
- France are on a six-game winning run at the moment
- Under 2.5 goals were netted in three of previous four meetings between the two teams
- Didier Deschamps’ men scored 2+ goals in each of their previous six matches
- Antoine Griezmann scored his eighth goal for France against Albania
- France crushed Switzerland (5-2) at the 2014 FIFA World Cup
Switzerland vs France Prediction
Both France and Switzerland are with one foot in the Euro 2016 knockout stages and seeing that both teams will be happy with one point from the match, there is every chance we will see a low-scoring affair at Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Switzerland have conceded no more than one goal at the European Championship finals to date and, taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals appears on the cards.
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.50 (1/2) @Betfair
