England vs Switzerland, The King Power Stadium, Tuesday 11th September
– England have 15 wins in comparison to Switzerland’s 3 in 23 meetings
– England have won the last two meetings 2-0
– Switzerland’s last victory over England came in 1981
– Over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 6 meetings
– Harry Kane scored as a substitute in their last meeting in 2015
– Switzerland lost to Sweden in the R16 at the World Cup after an unbeaten group stage
Vladimir Petkovic masterminded a 6-0 win over Iceland at the weekend; a feat not to be dismissed as Switzerland look to shake off their tag of being a strictly defensive side.
England’s fortunes were less so in a 2-1 home defeat to Spain. Southgate’s side showed positive glimpses throughout the 100 minutes, with a last-gasp Welbeck effort being ruled out for a foul on the keeper.
With England, there are always injury concerns during International breaks. For this friendly, Shaw, Rashford and Alli are all expected to join Lallana and Sterling on the sidelines as Southgate is forced to rotate more than he’d like. The beneficiaries of these omissions will be Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray who have been called up from the U21 side.
Friendlies are hard to gauge at International level, however, England seem to still be riding their World Cup wave with a positive performance only blighted by the result against Luis Enrique’s Spain.
England have failed to keep a clean sheet in nine of their last eleven outings, and with the Swiss on a high after netting consistently against dangerous sides, backing the BTTS market looks sensible and on the side of form.
The young Lions should be buoyed by the crowd inside Leicester’s King Power Stadium; an intimate crowd in comparison to the 90,000 at Wembley Stadium.
1.72 is a little short to be backing England to get the victory with any conviction. 2.00 is more temping for the BTTS market, with an England win and BTTS at 4.33 also worth a look.
