We are under two months removed from the Euro 2020 Finals, a game in which Italy overcame England. We know look ahead to Switzerland vs. Italy for Matchday 5 in the Euro 2022 World Cup qualifiers. It’s getting to the stage of the qualifiers were teams who are behind desperately need to pick up points in order to stay in the race for a World Cup spot. Let’s take a closer look at where the value is at in this matchup.

Key Points to Consider
Head-to-Head: These two teams last met on June 16 and Italy won 3-0 in the Euro 2020.
Switzerland hosts Italy at St. Jakob-Park this Saturday at 2:45 PM ET in a Group C game of the Qatar World Cup European Qualifiers. Italy is in first place in Group C with 10 points in four games. The reigning Euro 2020 Champions have scored seven goals and have conceded just one while Switzerland has a perfect record with six points in two games. A win could get Switzerland closer to first place, as they have played less games than Italy but this won’t be an easy task.
Italy is coming off a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Bulgaria last Thursday and they will look to bounce back and get a statement win on the road. Switzerland hasn’t played a Qatar World Cup European Qualifier since March 28, when they beat Lithuania 1-0 at home and in their last game they beat Greece 2-1 in an International Friendly on Wednesday. Italy is unbeaten in 35 straight games, which equaled the European record set by Spain from 2007 to 2009. Switzerland is playing well and they will be at home but their layoff from this competition can be costly. Italy is the better team and I don’t see them losing their streak here. The play I like is the Under, this seems to be a 1-1, 1-0, type of game.
Under 2, 2.5 at 1.95
