The group stage of the UEFA Euro 2024 has entered its final phase with Switzerland and Germany scheduled to face each other in the third and final Group A clash on Sunday night. The hosts have won both their opening matches in the European championship while Murat Yakin’s side are unbeaten in their two clashes with a win and a draw.

While Germany have already booked their Round of 16 spots, Switzerland are highly likely to qualify for the next round from Group A. In the Group A standings, Germany are at the top with six points followed by Switzerland in the second spot with four points in two matches. While Scotland have managed a draw to earn a point, Hungary have lost both their matches and are lingering at the bottom of the standings.

Switzerland vs Germany: Match Preview

Germany and Switzerland have squared off against each other 52 times with the three-time European champion dominating the head-to-head fixtures with 35 wins. The Swiss side have won nine matches against Germany while eight games were drawn.

Despite the dominance of Germany in the overall clashes, the Euro 2024 hosts are winless in their last three games against Switzerland (1W, 2D). Since the 1966 FIFA World Cup, this will be the first major competition between the two sides. Germany scored in 51 of their 52 matches against Switzerland, the only time they didn’t score was the 1968 friendly that ended 0-0.

Switzerland vs Germany: Match Prediction

Switzerland defeated Hungary 3-1 to commence their UEFA Euro 2024 campaign while star midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri’s strike helped them equalise the game against Scotland and salvage a point from the fixture. On the other hand, Germany scored five past Scotland in their opening clash and two goals against Hungary in their last clash. With seven goals being scored by the Germans and just one goal conceded in two matches, the hosts are among the favorites to reach the semi-final stage.

With the presence of veterans like Toni Kroos, Manuel Neuer, and Ilkay Gundogan among others, and young talent including Kai Havertz, Jamal Musiala, and Florian Wirtz, Germany are one of the most balanced teams in the European championship. Switzerland are a tough opponent and are expected to give a powerful competition to the hosts.

Considering all the facts, we predict Germany will beat Switzerland by 2-1.
