Switzerland odds: To win Euro 2020, how far will they go, top scorer and more
Switzerland head into this summer’s European Championships Quarter Finals having already bested their greatest tournament performance.
The Rossocrociati have only made four European Championships prior to this summer, with their best return the round-of-16 berth they enjoyed last time out at Euro 2016.
Switzerland are a growing force on the international stage, becoming tournament regulars and a tricky prospect nobody wants to face. Nothing proved that better than their run to the semi-finals of the inaugural Uefa Nations League – it took a penalty shootout for England to wrestle third place from their grasp.

To get here, Vladimir Petkovic’s men finished top of what proved to be a very competitive qualifying Group D, losing just once and picking up 17 points from their eight games. Switzerland finished a point above runners-up Denmark.
And although they were held to a draw by Wales in their opening game and beaten comfortably by Turkey in their second, Switzerland progressed to the knock-out stages thanks to a win over Turkey in Matchday Three.
And then they were to shock the footballing world in the Round of 16, beating tournament favourites and World Cup holders France on penalties after a remarkable 3-3 draw in Bucharest.
Switzerland Euro 2020 odds
Switzerland still not among the favourites at this summer’s tournament despite that win over France but, as mentioned, they have a talented squad growing in experience at international tournaments. Their Nations League exploits two years ago are proof enough that they should be considered dark horses for a deep run this summer.
Lifting the trophy may not be realistic, as they sit in the more difficult side of the draw, but confidence will be high after their shock win against les Bleus. So who knows?
As winners of their qualifying group, Switzerland were placed into Pot 2 for the Euro 2020 draw. Joining them in Group A were Italy, Turkey and Wales, with one defeat, one draw and one loss enough to send El Nati through.
Having progressed from there, they have since faced France in the Round of 16, scoring twice in the final 10 minutes of normal time to force extra-time and penalties, which they eventually won against all odds.

Switzerland Golden Boot odds
Better known for his hold-up game and ability in open play, Benfica striker Haris Seferovic is still Switzerland’s best-priced option for the Golden Boot this summer. The 29-year-old has three goals to his name in this tournament after a prolific campaign in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
