We’re back with Euro 2020 signing Statman Dave today as he continues looking into all the biggest clashes in the Round of 16.
Following on from his Belgium vs Portugal predictions, he’s taking a look at pre-tournament favourites France as they prepare for their clash with a Swiss side who have never made it past the last 16 in the European Championships.

Statman Dave’s France vs Switzerland preview
Unfortunately for the neutrals, I think this one may be as straightforward as it looks.
Switzerland were pretty mediocre in the group stages and their path into the next round was bolstered massively by the fact that they came up against one of the worst sides in recent memory in Turkey.
Things may not have quite clicked for France in the way that many would have predicted but it’s worth remembering that they were pretty underwhelming in the group stage in 2018, as were Portugal in 2016. The fact that they haven’t quite looked like a real force in the competition shouldn’t worry fans too much.
What might worry fans of Les Bleus, through, is Kylian Mbappe’s form in front of goal. The PSG phenom is yet to score in the competition and never really threatened to against Portugal: he completed just one of the five dribbles he attempted and took just one shot.
I think this will be the game that we really see France hit their stride and you’d hope that their main man can do the same against a side that were statistically one of the easiest to find quality shots against in the group stage. Mbappe really came to life against Argentina in the Round of 16 in the World Cup, scoring a decisive brace, and he’s overdue a big performance in this competition.
I think we have expect France to win this one, although given their clumsy moments against Portugal I’d go for France to win, both teams to score and Kylian Mbappe to score.
Statman Dave’s best bet: France to win, both teams to score and Kylian Mbappe to score
