Wales vs Switzerland Euro 2020 prediction and lineup

As the Euro 2020 starts Wales will take on Switzerland in Baku on Saturday. Five years earlier they had a magical journey to the European Championship semi-finals. Both teams are hoping to progress to the first knockout phase of the pan-European competition. Here’s our prediction on Wales vs Switzerland prediction and lineup.

Team news

Wales lineup: Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Roberts, Allen, Ampadu, Williams; Bale, Wilson, James

Wales alternated between a back three and a back four in each warm-up game, but they may favor the former today.

Harry Wilson has recently been utilized as a central striker for Wales, with Gareth Bale and Dan James on either side.

For Wales, ahead of Neco Williams at left wing-back, Rhys Norrington-Davies may get the nod, while Danny Ward and Wayne Hennessey are battling it out in goal.

Ethan Ampadu of Chelsea has been a regular for Wales, frequently more than for his club, but he may not be selected here. In central midfield, Joe Morrell or Joe Allen are more likely to start alongside Aaron Ramsey.

Switzerland lineup: Sommer; Elvedi, Akanji, Schar; Mbabu, Xhaka, Freuler, Rodriguez; Shaqiri; Gavranovic, Seferovic

As Switzerland prefers to play with two strikers, Denis Zakaria and Remo Freuler are vying for a spot in midfield alongside Granit Xhaka.

Breel Embolo, Admir Mehmedi, and Mario Gavranovic are vying for the starting position. In one of their warm-up games, the latter scored a hat-trick against Liechtenstein.

Switzerland has an option to place Ricardo Rodriguez at left wing-back or as a third center-back on Saturday.

Wales vs Switzerland Prediction

In 2016, Wales reached the semi-finals of the European Championships for the first time and had set a high standard for themselves. This year their success depends on their hard work and they may even fail to move out of a tough group that includes Italy, Turkey, and Saturday’s opponents Switzerland.

In 2016, Switzerland has only ever progressed past the group stage in one of its four European Championships. Prior to Saturday’s match they are on a six-game winning streak, having drawn twice with Spain and once with Germany.

Wales is a difficult team to beat in competitive matches, however, Switzerland can defeat any team. Gareth Bale’s side has a strong record of keeping clean sheets, having kept three of their last four opponents scoreless. Group A could be dominated by ties, with Turkey in a position similar to Wales and Switzerland, and we can see this match in Baku ending all square.

Our Prediction: Wales 1-1 Switzerland
