Germany vs. Switzerland – prediction, team news & odds
Germany and Switzerland, the two neighbouring countries, square off against each other at RheinEnergieStadion in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Germany host Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday night, when they continue their 2020-21 campaign, having just secured the first-ever win in the competition in Ukraine on Saturday night.
Switzerland lost 1-0 to Spain in Madrid. Switzerland have picked up just a solitary point so far, which was thanks to a draw in the reverse fixture against Germany. They lost to Ukraine last month, before the loss in Madrid on Saturday.
Germany started their League A Group 4 campaign with back-to-back draws against Spain and Switzerland but recorded a 2-1 win over Ukraine on Saturday night.
Germany are currently two points behind Spain, and with a trip to Madrid pending next month, it is imperative that they take the three points from this game.
Reason for Germany vs Switzerland predictions:
- Five teams have scored in Germany’s last five games.
- BTTS has landed in four of Switzerland’s last five matches.
- Three of the last four contests between these two have seen both teams score.
- Switzerland have lost three of their last four matches.
Germany have an overwhelming head-to-head record against the Swiss, having won 35 of the 51 matches they have played against them. Switzerland have only won nine.
They have played seven draws between themselves, with one of them coming the last time they faced each other, which was last month.
Germany won their first Nations League game at the seventh attempt at the weekend, although they needed a weakened Ukraine side in order to do it.
Germany have seen both teams score in their last five games, while they’ve conceded in each of their last six Nations League matches.
We expect the pair to continue their high-scoring record here, with three of the previous four meetings seeing both teams score, including their clash last month. On top of backing BTTS, we’re backing Germany to claim a 2-1 victory over a side who have lost three of their last four.
With enough firepower in their ranks in the form of Havertz, Werner and Gnabry, Germany will fancy their chances of winning this game.
Prediction: Under 3.0 @ 1.88
