France vs Switzerland
World Cup winners France began Euro 2020 as clear favourites to lift the trophy this year and, while they only won one of their three group matches so far, there has been little to suggest Deschamps side aren’t capable of adding to their trophy.Their draw against Hungary last week was a disappointment but they were much more assured than the statistics suggest in their opening game against Germany and they finally showed some attacking prowess in their draw with Portugal on matchday three of the group decider.
Successfully navigating the Group of Death consisting Germany and Portugal was their first big hurdle and they head into the Round of 16 unbeaten in twelve. I still feel France have a few more gears to go through and they should have little problem making it nine wins in 12 on Monday.
Switzerland managed to make it to the knockout rounds thanks to a comfortable win over the dreadful Turkey in their final group game but getting any further would be a real challenge for them even if they weren’t drawn against the world champions.
The Switzerland looked very poor in their 3-0 defeat to Italy last week and they were the only team in Group A to concede to Turkey. They have never made it past the Round of 16 in the European Championships and another fall at this most familiar of hurdles looks to be on the cards.
Predictions France win
