Switzerland vs Poland Team News
Coach Vladimir Petkovic has a full squad to choose from ahead of the clash and he is likely to field the best possible side against Poland. Admir Mehmedi is widely expected to return to the starting line-up, with Haris Seferovic pushing for a start as well. Manchester United target Breel Embolo is likely to drop to the bench. Vladimir Petkovic should stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation.
Jakub Blazczykowski came from the bench and scored against Ukraine and he is likely to return to the starting line-up. Bartosz Kaputstka will have to serve his ban against Switzerland, while goalkeeper Wojcieh Szczesny is rated doubtful and he faces a late fitness test. Coach Adam Nawalka has no other selection worries ahead of the Euro 2016 last 16.
Doubtful: Wojciech Szczesny (27/0)
Suspended: Bartosz Kaputstka (10/2)
- Under 2.5 goals were netted in Switzerland’s previous three matches
- Robert Lewandowski has yet to open his goal-scoring account at the tournament in France
- Over 3.5 goals were netted in last two meetings between Switzerland and Poland
- Poland are after their fourth consecutive clean sheet at Euro 2016 finals
- Lukasz Fabianski is likely to earn his 33rd cap for Poland against Switzerland
Switzerland vs Poland Prediction
Both Switzerland and Poland are undefeated at the 2016 European Championship finals and both teams have been impressive at the back at the showpiece tournament in France. There is every chance we will see a close encounter in Saint-Etienne and I would not be surprised if one goal separates the two teams in the Euro 2016 last 16. Taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals bet appears on the cards.
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.40 (3/5) @Betfair
