Albania vs Switzerland is one of the earlier games in Euro 2016 and it will be a big game for the Albanians as this is the first time they have qualified in any big international tournament. For Switzerland on the other hand it will be business like usual and they will look to start their tournament of on a high.
Switzerland are a good side and they will know that if they fail to win this game, it will be tough for them to qualify to the knockout stage of the tournament. This group has France and Romania so this will be the easiest game for the Swiss and they should believe that they will win with the likes of Shaqiri leading the lines. This team has a lot of great talent from all over Europe and I think they will want to run deep in Euro 2016.
Albania on the other hand will be very proud already and a win will be a bonus. This will mean that the team has a lot of freedom but I think they just lack too much in the quality aspect and they don’t have enough goals in them. This all adds up to a loss in my opinion since their opponents are tough.
As established, Switzerland should win this match and they should do it with some ease. I think betting on them to win is a safe play but it has very little value involved with it. We are getting a very short price but at this stage of the tournament this is often the case. I think betting on under 2.5 goals is a better play since Albania will look to play a tight game which makes 1-0 or 2-0 results the most likely outcome.
