Scotland vs Switzerland prediction, odds & betting tips – 19/06/2024

Switzerland will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in Euro 2024 on Wednesday night when they take on Steve Clarke's Scotland.

Scotland were awful in their opener against the hosts Germany, going down 5-1 and having a man sent off, while Switzerland put in a great performance to defeat Hungary 3-1.

A point is a must for Scotland in this game but a win would give the Tartan Army a big chance of progressing out of the group stage for the first time in their history. However, this Swiss side is packed with talent and experience and they rightfully head into the game as the bookmakers' favourite to win.

Last five H2Hs: Switzerland edge it

The Swiss have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games against Scotland.

Scotland preview: Lacked an attacking threat against Germany

Scotland's heavy defeat against Germany, the worst opening game defeat in the history of the European Championship, was a real disappointment for the Tartan Army fans who expect more fight from their team.

Steve Clarke will have to change things up if he is to get a decent result against Switzerland on Wednesday with one option being bringing Billy Gilmour into the starting lineup for added creativity.

This is a ‘must not lose' game for Scotland and with that comes the danger of a defensive-minded approach but really Clarke should be sending his players out there to beat Switzerland.

Predicted lineup: Gunn (GK), Robertson, Tierney, Hendry, Ralston, Hanley, Gilmour, McGinn, Christie, McTominay & Adams

Switzerland preview: Could go far at Euro 2024

The manner of their 3-1 win over a decent Hungary side will have given the Swiss fans belief that their side can go far at Euro 2024 this summer.

Kwadwo Duah opened the scoring against Hungary with his first goal in just his second appearance for his country. The 27-year-old, who was a surprise selection by Murat Yakin, led the line really well and put in an excellent overall performance.

Switzerland will now be extremely confident in their ability to defeat Scotland and book their place in the knockout stage.

Predicted lineup: Sommer (GK), Rodríguez, Schär, Widmer, Akanji, Xhaka, Freuler, Aebischer, Vargas, Duah & Ndoye

Player to watch – Kwadwo Duah

Switzerland striker Kwadwo Duah became an instant hero for the Swiss fans when he opened the scoring against Hungary on matchday one.

The Ludogoretz striker had only played once before for his country and was it was considered a shock by most when he was called up to the Swiss squad for Euro 2024.

Switzerland's surprise hero

However, the 27-year-old, London-born, striker has scored goals in his homeland, Germany's second tier and Bulgaria over the last few seasons and proved his worth with a top-notch display against Hungary. We're backing Duah to score against Scotland on Wednesday and help guide Switzerland to another three points.
