Switzerland and Spain travel to Saint Petersburg, Russia, on Friday night for a Euro 2020 quarter-final matchup many were not expecting. Betting Planet’s soccer expert presents his best bets and match analysis for what will be the 23rd meeting between the two nations.

Switzerland vs Spain match analysis

Switzerland head to Russia having caused the upset of the tournament when knocking out pre-tournament favourites France in dramatic circumstances. Having trailed 3-1 in the 80th minute, the Swiss clawed their way back when Haris Seferovic (81’) and Mario Gavranovic (90’) found the back of the net to force the match into extra time and then ultimately penalties. Goalkeeper Yann Sommer proved the difference in the shootout, stopping Kylian Mbappe’s penalty to send Switzerland through to the last eight.

Friday’s match against Spain will be Switzerland’s first in the quarter finals at a European Championship. If they bring the same dogged determination as they did against France, it may not be as straightforward as the current Euro 2020 betting markets suggest. Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri is the star man in a solid line-up consisting mostly of German Bundesliga players, but Switzerland’s depth will be tested as captain Granit Xhaka serves a suspension.

Spain were given the fright of their lives in the round of 16 against Croatia. The Spaniards led 3-1 in the 84th minute, but they had to go through extra time after conceding goals in the 85th and 92nd minutes. Spain’s blushes were saved when Alvaro Morata (100’) and Mikel Oyarzabal (103’) found the back of the net in the first half of overtime to secure the 5-3 win.

In a Spanish squad on the rebuild, youngsters like Ferran Torres, Dani Olmo and Pedri have proved critical. If they wish to get the better of this Swiss line-up, la Roja will have to put on a similar performance in attack to what they showed against Croatia. With Morata finally netting himself a goal at Euro 2020, his confidence will have been restored, whilst Pablo Sarabia, Torres and Oyarzabal will be looking to get their names on the scoresheet once more.

Switzerland vs Spain betting tips

Match handicap: Spain (-1.0)

Despite Switzerland’s remarkable win against France, the loss of captain Granit Xhaka seriously hurts their chances of progressing in Euro 2020. This Spanish have youth on their side mixed in with some strong, experienced players, and considering they have scored 10 goals in their past two matches, they may just be hitting their straps at the right time. We expect Spain to win, but with their being little to no value in win-draw-win markets at most soccer betting sites, the -1.0 handicap looks the smart play in this tie.

Anytime goalscorer: Pablo Sarabia

Having found the back of the net in both of Spain’s last two matches, Pablo Sarabia finds himself in a purple patch at just the right time. The winger from Paris Saint-Germain has been pivotal for Spain’s form reversal with those goals, and he has two assists next to his name as well. With all eyes being on Alvaro Morata, it may be Sarabia who sneaks under the radar of the Swiss defence.
