Switzerland v France Betting

2014 World Cup - Group E
20th June - KO: 8pm BST -
Salvador

An all European tie takes place at Salvador on June 20 as Ottmar Hitzfeld's Switzerland take on Didier Deschamps' France in what could be a defining match in who finishes top of Group E and the winner could potentially book their place in the second round of the 2014 World Cup and gain confidence from a positive result. Both teams got off to a winning start on Sunday with France comfortably beating Honduras 3-0 whilst Switzerland came from a goal down to beat Ecuador 2-1.

Switzerland comfortably qualified through their fairly straightforward group as seven wins and three draws saw them progess unbeaten and they showed when beating subsequent World Cup winners Spain 1-0 in the 2010 qualifying stages that on their day they can be a tough side to break down at the highest level.

On the contrary, France were forced to come through the play-off system having finished second to the aforementioned Spain in their qualifying group, but a 3-2 aggregate success over Ukraine booked their place in Brazil and they will hope they can recapture their winning mentality and look to emulate their World Cup success of 1998 with a win against the Swiss in this intriguing clash.

France have been installed as the favourites with the bookmakers for this clash.

Mathieu Valbuena - The Marseille play-maker has the skills to unlock defences and he could well be called upon here against what is usually a well organised Swiss outfit.
