Wales vs Switzerland: Prediction

Looking at the recent forms of both the teams, the Swiss hold the edge over Welsh. If we look at the history of Wales national team in major tournaments, we can see they have always managed to cause trouble until the later stages. 

We certainly expect an open and entertaining game, filled with goals.

For the prediction of the game, we believe that the game will end with the scoreline of Wales 2-2 Switzerland.
