Switzerland v France tips, predictions, line-ups and free bets (World Cup Group E - June 20, 2014)
France face Switzerland as Group E's two opening day winners fight it out for pole position in the group at the Arena Fonte Nova.

Switzerland experienced some difficulties to overcome a well organized and hard working Ecuador team. They were a goal down to Ecuador at the break but got themselves level early in the second half before a last gasp winner gave them maximum points. After that win, Switzerland look likely to make the last 16. Ecuador were their main challengers for qualification, and since the Swiss have Honduras in their final game, they should pick up enough points to progress.

No reported injuries or suspensions for Switzerland manager Ottmar Hitzfeld to contend with, so we will probably see the same players that started against Ecuador although there is a little possibility that both Mehmedi and Seferovic, who started last match on the bench, will have their chance at the starting lineup against France, replacing Drmic and Stocker. Fabian Schar may have to settle for a place on the bench once more after Johan Djourou and Steven Von Bergen put in impressive performances at centre-back on Sunday.

France have started a World Cup well and their confident 3-0 victory over Honduras will have given them confidence going into this game. Benzema, who scored a brace, now has eight goals in his last seven international matches, so is bang in form.

Deschamps will play with his usual 4-3-3 approach with Griezmann and Valbuena acting as some sort of false wingers in support of Benzema as Olivier Giroud may have to settle for a starting spot on the bench once more. The absence of Franck Ribery hasn't been a problem so far

France are unbeaten in their last five matches against Switzerland (W2 D3) and haven’t lost against the Swiss since a friendly back in 1992. The last three meetings have all ended in draws between these two, and it was a 0-0 in their last meeting, which was at the 2006 World Cup.


Switzerland (4-5-1): Benaglio; Lichtsteiner, Djourou, Von Bergen, Rodriguez; Inler, Shaqiri Behrami, Stocker, Xhaka; Drmic.
