French-Swiss Matchup Caps Group A

The hosts of Euro 2016 relied on late magic in both of their first two group matches against Albania and Romania. France will not want to play things so close to the chest against a Swiss team that is significantly more talented than either of the two previous French conquests.

SHARK BITES
  • France has not lost to Switzerland since a 2-1 defeat in 1992.
  • France and Switzerland were also in the same group at the 2014 World Cup.
  • Switzerland has scored one goal in both of their 2016 Euro fixtures.

The last matchup between these two border nations produced a total of seven goals, five for the French and two for the Swiss. The total for this game has been set at two and has a good chance at going OVER given the attacking nature of these two squads.

Didier Deschamps has done his share of experimenting with the French lineup during group play and the results are clear, Dimitri Payet is really, really good. The breakout star who plays his club football for West Ham has two goals in France’s first two games and is basically a lock to be in the starting lineup from here forward.

The Swiss were disappointed to come away with only one point in their last match against Romania after owning 67% of the possession and attempting a ridiculous 19 shots. They will have to be more vigilant on defense against a French team that possesses a lethal counter.

Switzerland are currently laying +365 moneyline odds on Bovada to upset the French. A parlay between that bet and Switzerland to win Group A – which they would do with a victory over the French – would render a nice return.
