Switzerland vs Denmark
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Tuesday, 26th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park (Basel).
Switzerland has quite a tough task at hand, as they take on Denmark this Tuesday. The former had begun their campaign on the right note, with a win over Georgia, and rightfully adorns the top spot in the group.
One thing that might worry them is the fact that Ireland has also posted the same number of points as the Swiss, and is going against Georgia for their upcoming fixture. A game against Georgia provides a minimum guarantee of a win for the Irish, and this forces Switzerland to go all out against Denmark.
This is the opening tie for Denmark in the qualifiers. It’s unfortunate that they are introduced into such a high-pressure situation. But the fact that they put on some good performances in the World Cup, and the Nations League, provides them confidence.

- All h2h wins have come for a margin of one goal.
Switzerland vs Denmark Prediction
The game is going to be close. Both these teams harbor hopes for qualification and have put on good performances in recent games. But still, it needs to be mentioned that the upper hand goes to Switzerland.
Reasons being – h2h ties have never returned an away win. Going on, the Swiss has an unbeaten record at home. Also, they are currently one of the hottest prospects in world football, after securing qualification to the inaugural Nations League Finals. Despite the presence of World Cup semi-finalists Belgium in their same group, the Swiss managed to progress to the subsequent stage.
Additionally, Switzerland has just one loss in their last 16 home ties, and the lone loss came in a friendly. Meanwhile, Denmark recorded just two wins in their last nine games on the road. These observations point to the inference that a narrow home win is in order.
Furthermore, the Swiss kept nine clean sheets in their last thirteen home games, whereas, Denmark failed to score in two of their last four away matches. Coupled to this the need for the hosts to win the game, expect them to keep a clean sheet in the first half.
