Betting prediction: Germany 2 – 1 Switzerland


Die Mannschaft welcomes Switzerland to the Rheinenergiestadion in Stuttgart on Tuesday for this UEFA Nations League match.

Tuesday’s match is the 53rd meeting between these neighbouring countries. Germany dominate the head-to-head with 36 wins to Switzerland’s 9.

Switzerland come into this undefeated in their last two matches against Germany. Their 5-3 win in Basel back in 2012 ended a run of 18 matches without a victory in this head-to-head. A run stretching back into the 1950s.

Germany vs Switzerland: What are the betting odds?

Die Mannschaft have won 5 of the last 6 matches between these two nations on home soil. Therefore, it is no surprise to see them start the match as the favourite to win at 1/2 on.

Germany and Switzerland played out a 1-1 draw when they met in Basel just 5 weeks ago. Odds of 16/5 are available if you see Germany and Switzerland cancelling each other out on Tuesday once more.

Switzerland are the last team to pick up a victory in this head-to-head. Their 5-3 home win back in 2012 was a remarkable game. Despite this, they start the match as underdogs at 5/1.

Germany vs Switzerland: Match preview

This is the second meeting of these two sides in little over a month. They played out a 1-1 draw at St. Jakob-Park in Basel back in September in the Nations League.

Granit Xhaka suggested after the match that Switzerland were the better side and deserved to win the match.

“I think we had a good game against Ukraine as well, especially in the first half. Today, in my opinion we were the better team. We’ve got a tough group, but let’s hope for the best in the next three matches.”
– Granit Xhaka, Switzerland captain

His statement has some merit also. While possession of the ball was pretty even, Switzerland led the shot count 20 to 14, and shots on target 6 to 4.

Perhaps the most telling evidence to how well they managed to open up Germany while limiting the Germans to half-chances at the other end is the fact they had 5 big chances in the game to 1 for Germany. ‘Big Chances’ are what Opta deems as any scoring chance that carries a ~30% or better chance of resulting in a goal, based on the rate previous similar chances were scored at.

This suggests that Switzerland were very unlucky or wasteful not to get on the scoresheet at least once. While Germany were fortunate (or clinical) in getting on the scoresheet.

Despite the poor run of results, including defeat against Spain last time out making it four games without a win in 2020, Vladimir Petković seemed upbeat about Switzerland’s performances.

“We want to go there, produce another positive performance (similar to against Spain) and pick up points while we’re there.”
– Vladimir Petković, Switzerland Head Coach

It seems he is happy with performances and believes that good results will naturally follow as a by-product of the performances soon. This suggests he will have patience with his players but will the Swiss FA have patience with their Head Coach in this increasingly results-oriented industry?

Germany team news vs Switzerland

Joachim Löw has plenty of talent to call upon should he which to keep players fresh against Switzerland.

Emre Can, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner all had brief cameos against Ukraine of a few minutes. They would be hoping to benefit from any rotations in the German starting XI.

The German’s also have plenty of other talent who didn’t even feature against Ukraine, such as Florian Neuhaus, Luca Waldschmidt, Robin Gosens, Jonathan Tah and Julian Brandt.

However, in his press conference, Löw suggested he wouldn’t be making any unforced changes to the starting XI.

“It makes sense to play with a similar team on Tuesday (as the one who started against Ukraine). It’s the first time in ten months we have been able to play with this team. If no-one has picked up an injury, I won’t be making many changes.”
– Joachim Löw, Germany Head Coach

While it will be good for the German National Team to settle on a side to find some rhythm playing together, this will likely frustrate the club managers of these players who run a high risk of injury or burn-out in this condensed season.

Switzerland team news vs Germany

Vladimir Petković has options in the squad to shake things up as he looks to break a four-game winless streak.

Xherdan Shaqiri made a 30-minute cameo from the bench against Spain at the weekend. The Liverpool forward had missed the previous 9 matches for the Swiss due to injury. Will he be ready to start against Germany here?

Edimilson Fernandes only managed a brief cameo of 4 minutes against Spain. The Mainz midfielder could offer fresh legs should Petković opt to rotate out one of Freuler or Xhaka.

Ruben Vargas could provide fresh legs for the forward line. The 22-year-old Augsburg winger also played the final 30-minutes of the defeat against Spain.
