Euro 2016: Albania vs Switzerland

Albania vs Switzerland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second match of EURO 2016 in Group A, Albania take on Switzerland at Stade Bollaert-Delelis, Lens. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Albania vs Switzerland.



Albania had never participated in any major UEFA or FIFA tournament, so UEFA EURO 2016 will be their first big tournament in history. They are underdogs on this tournament, but they still hope that can make good result on their debut big tournament and finish the group phase at the second position or at the 3rd position and eventually go through. Albania finished the qualifications for EURO at the second position and the greatest result that they made is the victory against Portugal 0-1 in the first match. They have played two prepare matches before they went to France. In the first friendly match they beat Qatar 3-1, while in the last test match against Ukraine they lost 3-1. Switzerland have stronger squad, but Albanians will probably do their best in order to stay unbeaten.

Switzerland have very good squad and they hope that can go through in the phase of EURO 2016. They finished the qualifications for this competition at the second position, beside England. In this group they will face Romania after this game and at the end against host France, so three points is very important for them and they will do their best in order to win this game. They have improved their performance and make good progression in the last few years and became very good national team. Interesting fact is that Switzerland have few very players who are Albanians, such as Shaqiri, Xhaka, Dzemaili and Behrami. Without any doubt, Switzerland are favorites to win this game, but it won’t be an easy job for them to take all three points.
