France vs Switzerland: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
France aim to stretch their unbeaten record against Switzerland when they face off in the last 16 of Euro 2020 on Monday (8pm UK time).
France vs Switzerland: Predictions
France have never lost to Switzerland at a major tournament; winning two and drawing two of the previous four such encounters.
However, when the sides take to the Puskas Arena turf in Budapest, it will be their first showdown in the knockout stages.
Though they were unbeaten in Group F – stretching their run to 10 matches in the process – Didier Deschamps’ France are still to catch fire at Euro 2020.
Les Bleus were held to draws by Hungary and Portugal – conceding three times along the way – while Kylian Mbappe is still seeking his first goal of the tournament.
A timely 3-1 victory over Turkey secured third place in Group A for Switzerland, who now bid to overcome the reigning World champions and give Vladimir Petkovic a first win in charge during the knockout stages of a major competition.

France vs Switzerland: Match Stats
France are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Switzerland and will be heavy favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.
Following his equaliser in the draw with Hungary, Antoine Griezmann has now scored four goals in his last six appearances for Les Bleus.
The Barcelona forward – then of Atletico Madrid – also bagged a brace at this stage of Euro 2016 as Deschamps’ men came from behind to see off the Republic of Ireland 2-1.
Mind, Switzerland are not in bad form themselves. In fact, the 3-0 loss by Italy – their only taste of defeat in 10 games – was also the first time during that span that they have failed to find the net.
