Wales v Switzerland preview

You may have heard of Wales and their unlikely semi-final at Euro 2016. That was a long time ago. Gareth Bale, the Dragons’ star player five years ago, will be 32 next month and Aaron Ramsey is 30 and often injured. Both are coming out of middle seasons by their former high standards.

This Wales national team are always competitive and win games they are supposed to win. But the Welsh lose games against the best teams like Belgium, England, France and Croatia. Switzerland (No. 13 in the world) are a better team with better training than the Welsh, and the Swiss are also on a six-game winning streak and recently drew against Germany and Spain.

The Welsh, who know how to keep games tight and low scoring, need to play the perfect game and hope the rebounds go the way they want. But a miracle like 2016 is unlikely to be in the cards:

Odds and Predictions (Chances courtesy of DraftKings):

  • Switzerland -0.5 Asian handicap: +108
  • Prediction: Switzerland 1-0

Denmark vs Finland preview

Finland make their debut in their first major tournament and hope it can be one of Euro 2021’s wellness stories. But the Finns haven’t won a game since last November and they are in a squad. B difficult. Finland opens by facing a team from Denmark which, since September 9, 2018, has lost only twice, both of these defeats against Belgium, world No. 1.

Especially since they will play their three group matches in the friendly venue in Copenhagen, many see the Danes as one of the potential winners of the darkhorse tournament (+2500 to win, +900 for the final). It’s also an opinion based on their roster: The Denmark squad is mostly made up of pros who start for clubs in Germany, Spain, Italy and England.

This game is the best opportunity for Denmark to make up their goal difference in the race for Group B positions against Belgium and Russia. The Danes won’t let him go.

Odds and Predictions (Chances courtesy of DraftKings):

  • Denmark -1.5 Asian Handicap: +125
  • Prediction: Denmark 3-1

Preview Belgium vs Russia

How important will the pitch be to Russia when they face the World No.1 team? The Russians haven’t really fought in international competition in the past two years, nor have they faced a Top 10 team during that time. The last time was against the same Belgian team in March 2019 and it ended in a 3-1 loss.

The Belgians didn’t even have Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne available for that one and they will miss the Manchester City man for the opener (facial fracture). But Belgium’s roster is well known and the Red Devils should find a way to get the job done against a weaker Russian side than the one we saw at the 2018 World Cup.

The hard-line Russians are sure to make their life difficult (and hope to score a goal from a set piece), but they are not at the level of Belgium. The cream will eventually rise in it.

Odds and Predictions (Chances courtesy of DraftKings):

  • Belgium scores more than 1.5 goals: -103
  • Prediction: Belgium 2-0
