Current odds:

All good: Switzerland are the 1.87 Favourites and under 2.5 goals is 1.52. Under 3.5 goals is 1.19.

Not good: 0-0 is 7.6 to lay and AOAW is 19.

Stats:

There are no alarming results from meetings between these two countries. Albania have not conceded 4 goals in any of the last 20 games and neither have Switzerland. Switzerland did concede 5 goals against France in the last World cup,  22 games ago.

Albania have not scored 4 goals in any of their last 20 games but Switzerland have twice against San Marino (I think we can disregard those games) and once against Lithuania.

Conclusion:

As far as odds and stats go, a fairly reasonable ASP game except in one area. The ANY OTHER odds are high. The 0-0 odds are low but just outside the filter and so I wouldn’t be overly concerned here.

My take on this game is that the odds say that this could be a bore draw but I was quite impressed with Switzerland during the last World Cup and I think they are more than capable of a goal or two here. I predict a win to Switzerland 1-0.

Switzerland have had a poor build up to the Euro’s and I think they have a tendency to play too many poor teams in their friendly games. When they have met solid opposition of late they have been beaten. I put them on a par with Romania and think they or Romania will take the second spot in this group after France. I would not want to bet yet on which of them goes through.

I know little about Albania except that this is their first major international tournament appearance and their build up to this has not been that impressive even though they were runners-up in their qualifying group behind Portugal. But the odds clearly do not reflect a total dominance expectation in favour of Switzerland.

It seems to me that Albania do not do well against the stronger, more established, competition. However, of note is a 1-0 victory against France last June and a 1-0 victory against Portugal in the September 2014. If they were to beat Switzerland they may think they have a chance when they play the French again on 15th June. That would be a very interesting game if Romania were to take points against France and Albania were to beat Switzerland.
