England vs Switzerland Tips
Gareth Southgate’s men qualified for the 2022 World Cup at the end of last year and he will be keen to experiment in these friendlies before the main event kicks off later this year. Quite a few of his important men are ruled out due to injury for this game but that presents an opportunity for others to step in and impress ahead of the mega event.
They come into this game in splendid form having gone unbeaten in the World Cup qualifiers winning 8 and drawing 2 games with an impressive goal difference of +39. The visitors also booked their World Cup spot after topping their qualification group ahead of European Champions Italy, going unbeaten as well. They are a well drilled side that does not give away many goalscoring opportunities and England will have to be at their best if they are to break them down. It is a game with not much at stake but considering 2 solid defensive sides are clashing here, I am not expecting a goal-fest.
An exciting international clash awaits us and as usual, I have you covered with 2 of my best betting angles for this game included in the preview below:
Aaron Ramsdale, Sam Johnstone, Reece James, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Tammy Abraham & Bukayo Saka are out for England.
Yann Sommer, Philipp Kohn & Fabian Schar are out for Switzerland.
England possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Walker-Peters, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham; Sterling, Mount, Foden; Kane
Switzerland possible starting lineup:
Kobel; Mbabu, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodriguez; Xhaka, Freuler; Okafor, Shaqiri, Vargas; Gavranovic
- Harry Kane Over 0.5 Shots on target
- Over 1.5 goal kicks in the 1st half for Switzerland
- Over 2 corners in the match for England
- Match result will be England or Draw
Harry Kane has been in scintillating goal scoring form for Tottenham recently with 4 goals in his last 4 appearances. He has been in fine form for his country too with 12 goals in 8 appearances in the World Cup qualifiers and a shot on target here should be a banker. We should see at least 2 goal kicks for Switzerland in the 1st half as England will look to start on the front foot. England have had at least 3 corners in their last 9 consecutive competitive games and should do it for a 10th time in a row here. Finally, expect the hosts to get a positive result at Wembley as they look to continue the incredible run they are on. Combining these 4 selections gives us a solid bet-builder @ 4/5 and I am happy to stake 1pt on that.
Harry Maguire is a constant threat from set pieces and has scored 4 goals in 6 appearances for England in the World Cup qualifiers including 3 headers. Paddy Power has boosted the price for him to get 1 header on target to 4.33 which looks great value for a small 0.5pt stake and we will have that as our 2nd bet for this game.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
