Betting tips Czech Republic vs Switzerland

While the visiting Swiss have a World Cup to prepare for, Czech Republic missed out on qualification for Qatar having lost out to Sweden in the play-off semi-finals earlier this year.

Currently ranked 14th in the FIFA rankings, Switzerland arrive in Praha in solid form, losing just 1 of their last 12 matches (120 minutes), that a narrow defeat against England in March. and only 2 of their last 20 since 2019.

Hosts Czech Republic find themselves 33rd in the FIFA rankings, while they have lost just 1 of their last 7, that an extra-time defeat against Sweden earlier this year and given both side's comparative form, we expect a tight occasion with the visitor's priced up as narrow 2.3 odds against favourites. Czech Republic are available at 3.3 odds with the draw a similar price.

Ultimately, this one looks pretty evenly balanced and a share of the spoils could well be on the cards. The Czechs have drawn 3 of their last 7 while Switzerland have drawn 6 of their last 11 and both nations would probably be happy to start their Nations League campaign with a point.

Both sides have plenty of attacking threat though and we do expect goals with the Swiss scoring at least 1 goal in 10 of their last 12 and the Czechs achieving something similar in 9 of their last 11 but the draw looks to offer some value here, particularly with Switzerland so prolific in that market over the past twelve months.
