Wales fans will still remember Euro 2016 dearly, when the Welsh Dragons reached the semi-final of the tournament, topping their group ahead of England and beating Northern Ireland and Belgium before Portugal brought the dream journey to an end. There would be no consecutive major tournaments as Wales failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup but they did make it back-t0-back Euros with a second-placed finish in qualifying Group E . Led by Ryan Giggs, Wales won four, drew two and lost to of their eight qualifying matches to finish a point ahead of third-placed Slovakia to reach just their third major tournament.

Euro 2020 will be Switzerland’s fifth appearance in the tournament, with all of those coming in the past seven editions. Since their first qualification at Euro 96, Switzerland have only failed to qualify for Euro 2000 and 2012, hosting the tournament in 2008.  Switzerland have, however, now qualified for the past four major tournaments including the 2014 and 2018 World Cups. They reached Euro 2020 by topping Group D, finishing one point clear of second-placed Denmark, with five wins and two draws from their eight games. Their only defeat came against Denmark, but a 6-1 win over Gibraltar on the final day of the group stage was enough to secure top spot.

Wales vs Switzerland: Match Stats

Although Wales secured second place in Group E in qualifying, they did it without showing too much in attack, scoring just 10 goals. Only Hungary (eight) scored fewer than Wales of the teams to qualify for Euro 2020, while Switzerland kept clean sheets in four of their eight qualifying matches. Wales also failed to score in their two Euro 2020 warm-up matches.

The main man for Switzerland at Euro 2020 looks set to be Haris Seferovic, who enters the tournament off the back of a good season with Benfica. Although he could not inspire them to the title, Seferovic scored 22 goals in 31 league games for Benfica, with only Sporting’s Pote (23) managing more in the Primeira Liga.

Wales vs Switzerland: Corner Stats

Wales haven’t found themselves taking too many corners in 2021, winning just 14 across their five matches. However, they have been known to concede corners, being on the receiving end of 27 during that same time. Switzerland, on the other hand, have taken a massive 39 corners in their five matches including 14 in their most recent game against Lithuania, while conceding just 11.

Wales vs Switzerland: Cards Stats

Wales have been in referees’ bad books this year, accumulating seven yellows and two reds in their five games in 2021. One of the reds came as a double-booking for Connor Roberts in Wales’ 1-0 win over Czech Republic, while Neco Williams was sent off for a harsh handball in the recent friendly defeat to France, conceding a penalty in the process. Meanwhile, Switzerland have been the good boys with just two yellow cards in five games in 2021, with one of those shown to Granit Xhaka for dissent. They have gone three of those five games without a booking.
