Tip Reasoning

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in four of Switzerland’s last five home games.
  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in three of Portugal’s last five away contests.
  • Portugal are undefeated in their last ten away games.

Spirited Swiss won’t succumb so easily to Portugal

Portugal’s eye-popping performance against Switzerland is still fresh in the memory and the evidence of last week’s 4-0 win is a persuasive argument for backing Fernando Santos’ side to win Sunday’s reverse fixture.

Portugal dominated the game in Lisbon, finishing with an xG of 3.55 to around that of just 0.18 produced by the Swiss.
There could be some mental battle scars on the hosts from that chastening experience when they go looking for revenge – and their first points of a disastrous Nations League campaign so far – in Lancy.

Murat Yakin’s men were better all around the park in their 1-0 home defeat to Spain on Thursday night, but one defensive error proved costly and they left it far too late to create any danger at the other end. Nati felt they deserved a penalty when the ball brushed a defender’s hand and their players were furious when the referee blew for full-time when they were about to take a corner.

At least there was some spirit in their play and the central defensive axis was much more solid than it was in Lisbon a few days before. With Thursday’s loss being their first in 12 home games, we recommend caution when considering the Portuguese at just better than evens for the win.

The goal markets may hold better value here with a very fair 10/11 available about fewer than three goals being scored at the Stade de Geneve. Nati have failed to score in two of their last five at home and the fact that they only hit two against Northern Ireland in last year’s World Cup qualifier looks a bit underwhelming in the light of their recent demise.

Fewer than three goals have been scored in four of Switzerland’s last five home games and in three of Portugal’s last five away trips, the last two of which have been drawn. Our belief is that Switzerland, who have conceded no more than once in their last eight home games, can eke out their first Nations League point here with a 1-1 result.
