England have a superb record against Switzerland and are fancied to extend that hoodoo in Tuesday night’s international friendly at King Power Stadium.
The Three Lions have not tasted defeat in 10 straight head-to-head encounters, winning five of the last six meetings.
Gareth Southgate’s side can be backed at 8/5 to win to nil and that is our first England vs Switzerland prediction.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
England will be keen to get back on track after a frustrating start to the new Nations League competition in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Spain at Wembley.
That represented a first competitive home defeat since 2007 and a third straight loss following World Cup reversals versus Croatia and Belgium.
With daunting trips to Croatia and Spain to come in the Nations League next month, the Three Lions will be chasing a confidence-boosting success against the Swiss.
Southgate insisted the performance versus Spain was solid, though, with Danny Welbeck unlucky to have a late strike ruled out.
“I’m very proud of the way the players finished the game because it was a night when you know you are playing against a top team,” said the manager.
“I’ve seen teams fold in that sort of situation, but we finished really strongly, created a couple of very good chances, have probably had as many shots on target as they have.
“So, given where we’re at and we need those experiences to improve, I couldn’t ask any more of the players.”
A Look At Switzerland’s Betting Odds
Switzerland will admittedly travel to Leicester on a high following their 6-0 thrashing of Iceland in the Nations League.
Liverpool midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri grabbed a goal and two assists in that dominant display, proving a constant threat with some fine free-kicks.
However, they had previously disappointed when beaten 1-0 by Sweden in the first knockout round at Russia 2018 and remain just below elite level in our book.
Switzerland also struggled up front when only edging out Northern Ireland 1-0 on aggregate over two legs of a World Cup play-off.
Leicester star Harry Maguire will be keen to make an impact on his home ground, so 7/1 for the defender to net at anytime completes our England vs Switzerland betting tips.
The powerful centre-half was certainly dangerous at set-pieces during the World Cup.
ENGLAND 1-2 Spain – Marcus Rashford
SWITZERLAND 6-0 Iceland – Steven Zuber, Denis Zakaria, Xherdan Shaqiri, Haris Seferovic, Albian Ajeti, Admir Mehmedi
Head-to-head: England 2-0 Switzerland, Switzerland 0-2 England, England 2-2 Switzerland, Switzerland 1-3 England, England 2-1 Switzerland, England 3-0 Switzerland
