Switzerland will host Belgium on Saturday 28 May 2016 in an international friendly game as both side prepare ahead of the Euro 2016 in France.
Switzerland finished second in the Euro qualifiers group which featured England and Slovenia, they were able to score 24 goals and finish 5 points above Slovenia. They were victorious in 7 of their last 8 games in the qualifying campaign.
Belgium last played in the Euro competition in 2000 making it 16 years they last played in the tournament, but with their current squad and young talents, like Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Divock Origi e.t.c they will go far if properly managed.
Switzerland: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)
Sommer – Rodriguez, Schar, Klose, Lichtsteiner – Xhaka, Behrami, Dzemali – Mehmedi, Seferovic, Shaqiri.
Belgium: Predicted Line Up (4-3-3)
Courtois – Vertoghen, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Lombaerts – Fellani, Dembele, De Bruyne – Hazard, Mertens, Lukaku.
Switzerland vs Belgium: Head to Head
The two teams have played 6 games together, but this will be the first non competitive game they are playing against each other, the previous games have either been world cup qualification or Euro qualification.
Their last game was in 1989 during World cup qualification for Italia 90, the game ended in 2-2 draw.
Switzerland have won 3 of their games while Belgium have won 2.
Switzerland vs Belgium: Prediction
With the handful of talents in Belgium squad, Belgium seem to have the edge over Switzerland but with the team spirit Switzerland showed in the qualifying campaign, they ate no push overs.
I think the game will end in a stalemate, but that is a high risk bet as its preferably to go for a double chance.
Best bet: Belgium win or draw
Recommended bet: over 1.5 goals
