Scotland play Switzerland in Group A on matchday two on Wednesday evening in prime time as the game is set to kick-off at 20:00 and will be broadcast live on BBC One.

The Scots must improve massively after losing 5-1 against Germany on Friday but our tipster still nailed the BTTS winner in that encounter. Betfred’s Frank Monkhouse previews the action and provides his Scotland vs Switzerland Predictions for us here at Betfred Insights...

Scotland takes on Switzerland in game two of Euro 2024 Group A. The pair had very different fortunes on matchday one. Scotland suffered the humiliation of a 5-1 defeat to Germany, while the Swiss impressed by beating Hungary 3-1.

Will the Scots win and blow the group wide open, or will the Swiss claim the points needed to move towards the knockout stages?

The football experts working on the Betfred trading floor have Switzerland as strong favourites to win on Wednesday, and that’s no surprise following the weekend’s results. The Scots faced Germany with high hopes of catching their big-name opponents cold, but they were 3-0 down by the interval.

Much better is required from Steve Clarke’s men, with Kieran Tierney telling members of the Tartan Army the players owe them one. Scotland is 18/5 to win at the second attempt.

Switzerland is in a position of strength following its hard-fought but deserved win over Hungary on Saturday. Kwadwo Duah's opening goal gave the Swiss the lead inside 12 minutes. Michel Aebischer made it two on the stroke of half-time before Breel Embolo wrapped things up with a third in stoppage time. It was a confident performance, and you can stick with the Swiss at 5/6 while the draw is 5/2.

Both teams to score

Those who followed my picks on Friday evening enjoyed two wins from three picks, including a bet on both teams to score. I wasn’t confident Scotland would beat the Germans, but I knew they had the ability to score, and I fancy more of the same here. Take both Scotland and the Swiss to find the net in an entertaining game.

Backing both teams to score would’ve earned you a profit when the pair last met. It was also a profitable approach when Scotland lost to Germany and Switzerland beat Hungary.

Add both teams to score to your midweek bets and enjoy a shot at 10/11. That’s good enough as a single but is sure to be popular with football bettors playing midweek accumulators. Follow our thinking and hope this game lives up to the hype.

Both score and Switzerland win

Despite expecting Scotland to improve drastically on Friday’s performance and score at least one more group goal, I’m backing the Swiss to show their class and collect a crucial three points.

Victory for the Swiss and Germans would see both nations secure their passage to the next round, leaving the Scots and Hungarians to battle it out on Sunday to avoid the wooden spoon.

With an enjoyable 90 minutes expected, I provide another tip with better odds attached. Back both teams to score and Switzerland to win at 16/5. That would’ve been a winning bet when the teams last crossed paths and also in Switzerland’s weekend win. It's a great bet at attractive odds that’s sure to make this game even more interesting.

Switzerland 3-1

We wrap things up with a correct score bet at 14/1 when taking Switzerland to win 3-1. Interestingly, 3-1 was the score when the Swiss beat the Scots last time and in their win over Hungary on Saturday.

After seeing Scotland lose 5-1 to Germany, we’re happy to shoot for a win at big odds. We must see improvement from Scotland from front to back if they are to avoid another heavy defeat and embarrassing result.
