Faroe Islands vs Switzerland
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group B)
Date: Friday, 9th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Torsvollur, Faroe Islands.
Faroe Islands lie in 4th place on 5 points and they already know that they won’t be playing in the World Cup in Russia next year. The best result that they have achieved at home was a 0-0 draw against Hungary. But they have only won 1 game in the group which came away at Latvia by 2-0.
The problem is scoring goals where the Faroes have managed just 2 in five games. They will be up against it when they host group leaders Switzerland. The Swiss have a 3 point advantage over Portugal and will know that by beating the likes of the Faroes they will be on the right path.
Switzerland have a 100% success rate in the group with 5 wins from 5 games and there is no reason that they can’t come away with a good victory in this game. The Swiss have won their last 6 international games in a row, conceding just 3 in that time and that includes victory over Portugal.

Faroe Islands vs Switzerland: Prediction
The Swiss are massive odds on to win the game and they should have little trouble in doing so in this match. Because we will search for value we think the 2nd half will create most goals. The Faroes have been impressive in defending at home, but as the game goes on they will become more tired. For this we will look into maximum stakes.
