A high 3.06 goals were scored on average per game, well above the global average of around 2.5, and a clear indicator towards 2.5 goals on betting coupons. In addition, 61% of matches produced 3 or more goals.
Swiss Football History
Although better known for Alpine sports, Switzerland has had a long history of football. In fact, the country has had a domestic league since the end of the nineteenth century. There has also been a competitive national team at various points in the nation's history, and there have been a handful of notable players which have emanated from this country in the middle of Europe.
A regular competitor in the early World Cup Finals tournaments, Switzerland found it more difficult to qualify for the world's premier internal football competition throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, reaching only one tournament between 1972 and 2002. The country had returned to being a more regular competitor in recent years. To date the teams' best performance was three quarter-finals appearance all before and in 1954, which was the last time the team reached that far.
In the UEFA European Championships, the national side failed to qualify for a finals until 1996, but since then has only missed out twice. Currently in Euro 2020, the Swiss are at betting odds of 50/1 to win the tournament outright, which seems low given the nation has never got past the Round of 16.
The Swiss women's national team have never reached a women's European Championship Finals, but reached their one and only World Cup finals tournament (to date) in 2015.
