Both teams to score at Switzerland vs Spain 5/6 for Friday’s European Championship matchup

Competition: European Championships

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

In a matchup that on paper could be another lively meeting, Switzerland and Spain will face off in Saint Petersburg on Friday evening with a spot in the semi-finals up for grabs.

Starting with Switzerland, while The Reds might have opened this summer’s delayed European Championships with a stutter, there is no doubt that La Nati will be on cloud nine after their famous victory last week. Mounting what was nothing short of a stunning comeback against defending world champions France in a 3-3 draw, Vladimir Petković’s men booked their spot in the quarter-finals thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s penalty miss. With the mood in their camp now set to be at a red-hot high and also signing off their Group A campaign with a crucial 3-1 romp against a struggling Turkey on foreign soil, The Swiss have suddenly found their feet in the final third. Bagging over 2.5 goals in back-to-back contests, they also managed to sign off their pre-tournament preparations with a thumping 7-0 victory against Liechtenstein on June 3rd.

As for Spain, also involved in their own thriller after throwing away a two-goal lead against Croatia earlier in the week, La Roja almost found themselves enduring another major tournament nightmare. Eventually landing an action-packed 5-3 victory against the 2018 World Cup finalists after extra-time, Luis Enrique’s side have suddenly gained a reputation for their lively affairs. Signing off their Group E campaign with a thumping 5-0 win against Slovakia last week, the former world champions bounced back from a pair of sluggish opening draws against Sweden and Poland. However, while Spain might have bagged 10 goals in their last two matchups of the summer, the one-time Barcelona boss would have been concerned by his side’s defensive issues on Monday. In a contest that could be another lively affair this weekend, we’re backing both teams to find the net.
