Switzerland vs Germany Euro 2024 Prediction: Who will finish top of Group A?

There will be a battle for top spot in Euro 2024 Group A fixtures when Switzerland and Germany clash in Frankfurt.

Switzerland vs Germany latest prediction

Germany have already sealed their progression to the knockout rounds of their home tournament. The hosts have six points from two games, following up their 5-1 thrashing of Scotland by beating Hungary 2-0. With that on his mind, there may be a temptation for Julian Nagelsmann to experiment a little here. However, topping Group A offers a more favourable path through the tournament, so avoiding defeat will still be high on the list of priorities.

Die Mannschaft have only won all three group games of a European Championship once before, going perfect at Euro 2012. Then, Joachim Low’s side beat Portugal, Germany and Denmark, securing the 100% record late on against Denmark thanks to Lars Bender’s winner.

Germany are facing a Switzerland side looking to remain unbeaten and top the group themselves. Murat Yakin’s side came from behind to eke out a draw against Scotland in their last match, following on from an impressive display to beat Hungary 3-1 in their opening game. Even if the Swiss were to lose, only a disastrous turn of events would see them crash out of the tournament, while a win would see them leapfrog the hosts to secure a more winnable round of 16 match.

Switzerland have qualified for the knockout stages of the European Championship in each of the past two tournaments, making it to the quarter-finals at Euro 2020, beating France in the last 16.

Two of the standout players for their respective sides so far have been Toni Kroos and Granit Xhaka, with the Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen men continuing their fine club form to conduct things in midfield for their national teams. This will likely be where the battle is won and lost in this match.

Switzerland and Germany meet in the final round of fixtures on 23rd June at the Frankfurt Arena at 8pm (UK time).

Another player looking to influence the game will be Jamal Musiala. The Bayern Munich midfielder is the top scorer at Euro 2024 so far, the only player to score more than once. Musiala netted in Germany’s first game against Scotland before scoring the opening goal in their 2-0 win over Hungary. In doing so, Musiala became the youngest player to score in a nation’s first two group-stage matches at a single European Championship.

Musiala is also the first player to score in Germany’s first two games at a European Championship since Mario Gomez at Euro 2012. He’s now aiming to become the first German player to score in each of his nation’s opening three games at a major tournament since Miroslav Klose at the 2002 World Cup. Should Musiala achieve the feat, he’d be the first to do so for Germany at a European Championship.

Switzerland latest team news

Murat Yakin has stuck with a three-at-the-back system at Euro 2024 so far and it’s worked a treat, offering them a platform in possession and plenty of numbers and speed on the break. Although they’re almost certainly qualified, Yakin will want another strong performance so will likely stick with the same line-up he’s run at the tournament so far.

One area up for debate is whether or not Xherdan Shaqiri starts. He sat out the opening match against Hungary, but returned to the line-up against Scotland and did what he always does by scoring a screamer at a major tournament. The Chicago Fire man burned out quickly in the second half but had already left his mark on the game by then.

Germany latest team news

Nagelsmann has a conundrum with top spot in the group not yet secured, meaning he cannot rotate too heavily. That said, he may well be tempted to bring the likes of Leroy Sane, Niclas Fullkrug, Nico Schlotterbeck and Emre Can into his XI to give them valuable match fitness.

More likely, the Germans will stick with what has delivered success so far to complete their domination of Group A.

Switzerland vs Germany head-to-head

Switzerland have now gone three games unbeaten against Germany, including an incredible 5-3 victory in 2012. Indeed, this game seems to bring the goals, with 26 goals across their last six encounters.

How to watch Switzerland vs Germany live
