Scotland – Switzerland Predictions and Preview

  • It was a disappointing start for Scotland in their Euro 2024 match against Germany on Friday night. They lost 5-1 to the German team.
  • Defender Kieran Tierney, speaking before the match against Switzerland, said that the team still believes they can qualify for the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time in their history. However, any result less than a positive one will make those prospects very unlikely.
  • Steve Clarke’s team is not showing the form of a team that can silence their doubters. Friday’s defeat means that only one of their last ten matches has resulted in a victory (D3, L6). And that victory came against a small team, Gibraltar.
  • Late lapses in concentration may be behind their defeat. Conceding seven goals in their last six matches after the 70th minute highlights their vulnerability in the latter stages, which could continue to be costly here.
  • This is especially true considering that Switzerland have already scored late in their match against Germany. Breel Embolo’s stoppage-time strike against Hungary helped them open the match with a 3-1 win. That capped off an impressive performance for Murat Yakin’s men, who must be growing confident that they can match or even go one better than their best performance of reaching the quarter-finals of the 2020 edition of the tournament.
  • The Swiss know that adding to their solid record of just one defeat from their last 15 matches (W7, D7) will all but see them into the knockout stages again. However, they would be unwise to let overconfidence creep in, particularly as it was Scotland who came out on top in the last meeting between these two at the Euros back in 1996 (1-0).
  • Players to watch: There have been calls for striker Lawrence Shankland to return to the starting lineup for Scotland after he dropped to the bench against Germany. He directly contributed to five goals (G4, A1) in five matches for club and country before that. Midfielder Michel Aebischer made a brilliant start to the tournament for Switzerland with a goal and assist in Saturday’s win.
  • Hot stat: Scotland’s last win at a Euros finals was that aforementioned success against Switzerland. However, including that, they have still not managed more than a single goal in any of their last seven Euro tournament matches (D2, L4).
