Switzerland World Cup Outright Odds

Switzerland will be targeting a deep run at the 2022 World Cup when they descend on Qatar this winter.

Ever-presents since 2006, the Swiss have reached the round of 16 on three out of four occasions, but no further.

They could count themselves unlucky 16 years ago; going out to Ukraine on penalties having not conceded a single goal during regulation time throughout the tournament.

It took a late Angel di Maria strike to deny the Red Crosses in Brazil eight years later, while they also suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against Sweden in 2018.

Meanwhile, penalties also halted them at Euro 2020, with Spain advancing to the semi-finals at their expense.

Will 2022 be the year they get the rub of the green, and could that culminate in them launching a genuine World Cup challenge?

Switzerland to win 2022 World Cup odds

Switzerland are currently priced at 100/1 to win the 2022 World Cup.

It is safe to say that the Swiss are not realistically expected to challenge for glory in Qatar. Indeed, you must go back to the tournament they hosted in 1954 for their last venture to the quarter-finals.

Nevertheless, they demonstrated their ability to compete with big nations during the qualifying phase.

Murat Yakin’s side went unbeaten in Group C – holding Italy to two draws – before pipping the reigning European champions to top spot.

Switzerland’s potential path to 2022 World Cup final

Placed in Pot 2, Switzerland were always going to be drawn among one of the top seeds in the group stage. Indeed, they were handed five-time winners Brazil for the second tournament running.

Although, they did avoid facing the likes of the Netherlands, Germany and 2018 finalists Croatia as a result. Instead, it is Serbia and Cameroon that complete Group G.

And they did hold the Selecao to a 1-1 draw four years ago, so will be confident of progressing to the round of 16 in second place at the very least.

Switzerland Golden Boot odds

While it will certainly not be the only factor determining their progress, the form of Xherdan Shaqiri is likely to be key to how far Switzerland go in Qatar.

He is priced at 150/1 to win the Golden Boot.

Now plying his trade in MLS with Chicago Fire, Shaqiri is back for his third crack at the World Cup.

The well-travelled winger has delivered in his previous appearances on the biggest stage. He netted a hat-trick against Honduras in 2014, as well as a last-minute winner against Serbia four years later.

Shaqiri will be 31 when the finals commence, and it remains to be seen whether or not he will still be in his country’s plans in four years’ time.

Therefore, he will be eager to make the most of things and leave his mark in Qatar.
