Euro 2020 Prediction: Half Time Draw

Wales fans will always remember the 2016 Euros. Against the odds, the dragons reached the semi finals under Chris Coleman despite being chalked up at 100/1 in the outright market before it started. It was the togetherness and steely defensive resolve that helped them go far and it’s likely they’ll try rekindle that spirit this time around.

It’s a tight looking group they’re in and risk-averse football looks likely, a draw might even suffice for both as they’ll get another two cracks at getting further points on the board. Wales games have been notoriously dour in terms of goals. Since the 2018 world cup, Wales games have averaged just 2 goals per game (In competitive fixtures), a nod to their pragmatic approach. That rational approach is usually a benefit when in knockout football, yet they’re rank outsiders at odds-against to qualify from group A. 

Despite having plenty of attacking threats in Harry Wilson, Kieffer Moore, Dan James and Gareth Bale we should expect them to sit off and try contain and counter, happy for Switzerland to have the ball.

The Swiss come into the tournament in decent form, but have largely played inferior opposition, that won’t be the case this summer. Boss Vladimir Petkovic has altered the sides style to be a more possession focused, build out of the back team but their lack of a quality front man may hinder them in the final third.

It looks likely to be a tight and tense affair and will probably be played at a very slow pace given the late afternoon heat in Baku. The goal line is very low and understandably so, but we can get 10/11 on it to be all square at the break and that does appeal. Neither side will want to give anything away early doors and first round games in major summer competitions have tended to play out in a similar fashion historically.
