Switzerland will be hoping for some revenge on Italy for the 3-0 loss it suffered when they last met. However, beating Italy is not an easy task. They have not been defeated in their previous five matches even though they have been held to quite a few draws recently. Switzerland is also going to be without its captain, Granit Xhaka, who was diagnosed with COVID-19 before its match against Greece.
Recent results suggest that we could be in for a game with plenty of goals and so that is something to look forward to for sure.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Switzerland vs Italy, World Cup 2022 Qualifiers. The match is going to be played at St. Jakob-Park, Basel, Switzerland on the 5th of September 2021.
Italy has been going through a bit of a tough phase when it comes to fluidity and attack. It has three straight Draws heading into this contest and has not kept a clean sheet in its previous five matches. That means Italy is making mistakes and the players are probably finding it hard to motivate themselves for the World Cup 2022 Qualifiers because they have one foot in the door already. Switzerland is tough to beat at home but it too has had trouble keeping clean sheets and is playing out a lot of Draws in recent matches.
We are going to stick with the trend and back another Draw in this contest.
Bet on the Draw in this match
Switzerland's previous ten matches have seen eight in which both teams scored. Italy too has not kept a clean sheet in the previous five matches it has played. We believe a Draw in which both teams score is a very real possibility.
