Euro 2016 will be the fifth time Switzerland have reached the Euro Cup competition, although they are yet to progress further than the group stages, a fact that should change at this summer’s finals thanks in part to being put in the weaker than average Group A. The Swiss’ qualifying campaign opened with a 2-0 home defeat to England and a 1-0 away defeat at Slovenia, but back to back 4-0 wins away to San Marino and home to Lithuania were backed up by a 3-0 win at home to Estonia to get them back on track.

Switzerland Online Betting Tips
Switzerland eventually finished second to England in qualifying Group E with seven wins and three losses from 10 games, scoring 24 goals and conceding eight.
While Switzerland excelled against much weaker opposition, they were easily beaten by England 2-0 on two occasions, which is a worry for them. Group A of Euro 2016 sees them take on minnow Albania, an out of sorts Romania team, and joint early favorites France. Going on the patters from their qualification route, those matches should end in a win, draw, and loss, which could be enough to see them progress.
We would expect the Swiss to finish second in Group A of Euro 2016 simply because they do have some players plying their trade in Europe’s top divisions, players who have an abundance of talent.
In Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri, Switzerland have a player who can turn a game on its head in an instant, while Josip Drmic of Hamburger SV has eight goals in 25 caps, with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Haris Seferovic enjoying a similar record of seven goals in 29 appearances.
The way Switzerland play and are set up makes them tough opponents during a group or league situation, but no team is going to fear them in the knockout rounds, they just are not that type of side.
You can get pre-tournament odds of +450 for Switzerland to top Group A but also +225 on them not qualifying, which shows how tight Group A is likely to be.
Expect to see an attacking Swiss team in their opening games against Albania and Romania because they do not want to play France in their final match needing to secure all three points, no team at Euro 2016 would want that on their shoulders.
