Wales vs Switzerland Betting PreviewWales will aim to recreate their magical run to the semi-finals at Euro 2016 when they famously beat Belgium in the quarter-finals five years ago, only to lose to Portugal in the last four. The Dragons subsequently missed out on qualification for the last World Cup but had a successful Nations League campaign, winning their group undefeated and recording several narrow 1-0 wins over Finland, Bulgaria and Republic of Ireland. Rob Page's side is not the most prolific team - they have scored just three goals in their last five matches.
Switzerland had a positive Nations League, obtaining six points in a group containing Spain, Germany and Ukraine. Their start to World Cup qualifying campaign was less solid, as they only recorded an underwhelming 1-0 victory against Lithuania. Anyway, Petkovic’s men arrive at this competition in good form - they have scored at least 3-goals in three of their last 5 matches during a 7-match undefeated run (6-1-0).
Probable Line-UpsWales (3-4-3): Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Roberts, Allen, Ampadu, Williams; Bale, Wilson, James
Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey remain the headline names for the Dragons but the former Arsenal midfielder is not expected to start the match. Bale will play out wide while Harry Wilson may be utilised through the centre-forward channel rather than his natural role as a winger or in the number-10 hole. Joe Morrell and Ethan Ampadu are in contention for a place alongside Joe Allen, as well as Neco Williams and Rhys Norrington-Davies for the left wing-back berth.
Switzerland (3-4-1-2): Sommer; Elvedi, Akanji, Schar; Mbabu, Xhaka, Freuler, Rodriguez; Shaqiri; Gavranovic, Seferovic
Steven Zuber and Ricardo Rodriguez will compete for the left wing-back role while Xherdan Shaqiri will start as offensive midfielder behind the offensive duo Haris Seferovic and Mario Gavranovic. The likes of Breel Emboloand Admir Mehmedi provide further offensive options. Remo Freuler and Granit Xhaka will anchor the midfield while the three man backline will be formed by Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji and Nico Elvedi.
Wales v Switzerland Predictions
Switzerland head into this contest on a six-match winning streak while Wales are a solid team and kept three clean sheets in their last four games. This match should not be a high-scoring affair and could be decided by the odds goal. We back Switzerland in the Draw No Bet market and Switzerland to win + Under 3.5 goals. The final score could be a 1-0 or 2-1 Switzerland victory.
