Switzerland vs Spain, Euro 2020, 02.07.2021
Switzerland’s dramatic last-16 exploits has earned them a quarterfinal date with Spain in St Petersburg on Friday night with both teams keen to advance to the final four of Euro 2020.

In what was undoubtedly the biggest upset of the tournament thus far, underdogs Switzerland, trailing 3-1 down with 10 minutes to play against world champions and prohibitive Euro 2020 favorites France, pulled level through Seferovic’s and Gavranovic’s late efforts and ultimately won on penalties when Kylian Mbappe failed to convert a 5th decisive spot-kick after the Swiss had gone a perfect 5/5 with theirs.
Vladimir Petkovic’s team have to be commended for making their first-ever quarterfinals but they will need to dig even deeper against the Spaniards who have had their number on speed dial in recent years.
Not to be left behind in the action, Spain were also involved in some terrific late drama in their own last-16 match against Croatia. They choked away a 3-1 lead with 5 minutes left on the clock as the Croats made a furious comeback to force extra-time. However, Morata and Mikel Oyarzabal’s unanswered efforts in that extra period put the tie to bed.
La Roja haven’t quite lit up the place this summer but with a number of heavyweights falling by the wayside in the tournament, they will fancy their chances of bagging this Championship for the fourth time, which would make them the most successful team in the competition, surpassing Germany’s three trophies.

SWITZERLAND VS SPAIN MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS
This might turn out to be a tricky fixture for Spain given the fact that Switzerland will be full of confidence after claiming the scalp of pre-tournament favorites France. Having had a close shave themselves, we expect the Spaniards to be a bit more cautious here. Those awaiting another 6 or 7 goal thriller here will sadly be disappointed. These teams tend to be involved in close and low-scoring encounters whenever they lock horns. We feel Spain has an edge here in terms of sheer talent and quality and we are backing them on the double chance with less than 4 goals in the game @ 1.60 as the first of our Euro 2020 prediction.
La Roja had a sluggish start to the tournament but they seem to have come alive in the final third in their last two matches. To avoid any pitfalls, they need to establish themselves early to calm nerves. Except for the goalless draw against Sweden in the opening match, they have opened the scoring in all the three other matches. A repeat of the same here is priced @ 1.51 with Betway and we are going with it as our final call.
