Match Preview

The French national team will face Switzerland in the last 16 of Euro 2020 at the Arena Nationala, Bucharest, Tuesday (29/6/2021) at 12:30 midnight Indian time. In this duel, Les Blues are championed to win as well as penetrate the quarter-finals.

France faces Euro 2020 with the status as one of the seeded teams. However, the Rooster Team's move to qualify from Group F is not as easy as turning the palm of the hand.

After beating Germany 1-0, the French national team drew with Hungary (1-1) and defending champion Portugal (2-2). Even so, France can still finish as a group of winners with five points.

With this performance, Paul Pogba et al. need to make a number of improvements, especially in the defense. Switzerland, which is ranked third in Group A behind Italy and Wales, has the potential to be dangerous.

Breel Embolo who scored one goal against Wales, as well as Haris Seferovic and Xherdan Shaqiri who led Switzerland to beat Turkey 3-1, are some players that Les Blues have to watch out for.

The French national team may not be entirely convincing. However, France has the quality to beat anyone, especially if coach Didier Deschamps is able to restore the performance of his troops.

In addition, the history of the meeting is also in favor of the French national team. In 38 meetings between the two teams so far, France won 16 times, while Switzerland won in 12 matches.

It should be noted that all of France's defeats to Switzerland (12) were experienced in test matches. As for the major tournament against Switzerland, France has so far never lost (2 wins; 4 draws).

Therefore, it seems that the French national team still deserves to be favorites to win and qualify for the quarter-finals of Euro 2020. In the last eight, France or Switzerland will duel against the winner between Croatia or Spain.
