Switzerland Prediction – Can the Swiss bounce back ?

Having endured their first defeat in these Euro 2020 group matches away at Denmark, Switzerland will be desperate to bounce back at their St. Jakob-Park in Basel when they play host to current Group D leaders, Republic of Ireland.

That 1-0 loss away from home to the Danes has resulted in Switzerland remaining in 3rd place but now find themselves 4 points adrift of Denmark who are now level on 12 points apiece at the top of the group with Republic of Ireland.

Tuesday night’s clash with the Republic of Ireland therefore now has a lot more riding on it with the hosts looking to keep pace with the top two nations, in what is a real ‘six-pointer’. Switzerland have gained wins over Georgia and Gibraltar to date, but have been held to 3-3 and 1-1 draws by Denmark and Republic of Ireland respectively as well.

The hosts may have their work cut out here though against the Irish, and for this pick to lose, Switzerland need to win by 2 clear goals – something they’ve managed only once in the previous 11 meetings against the Republic of Ireland to date.

Rep. Ireland Prediction – Can the Irish avoid a heavy defeat?

The Irish were involved in a second stalemate on the trot in Group D on the weekend when they were held to a 0-0 draw away at Georgia, but nevertheless, Mick McCarthy’s side extended their unbeaten run in these group matches to 6 without defeat.

This solid start to Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2020 campaign has seen the Irish occupy top spot in the group, although they’ve now been pegged back by 2nd placed Denmark who registered what could prove to be a vital 1-0 home win against Ireland’s opponents on Tuesday night, Switzerland.

The visitors have gained 3 wins and 3 draws to date in Group D which include wins against Gibraltar (home and away) and Georgia, but they could move a big step closer if they take all three points in Basel on Tuesday night.

With just 2 away defeats out of their last 16 matches on their travels in European qualifiers, the Irish are a stubborn unit to overcome, and they haven’t lost by a 2-goal margin in any of their last 19 away matches at this level.


Key-Facts – Switzerland v Rep. Ireland
