Switzerland seek their sixth consecutive victory across all competitions and a trip to the knockout stage when they face Scotland in a UEFA Euro 2024 Group A match on Wednesday at Cologne Stadium in Cologne, Germany. Switzerland have gone 3-2-0 since losing to Romania in a Euro 2024 qualifying contest last November, including a 3-1 victory against Hungary in their tournament opener. The Swiss will earn a spot in the Round of 16 with a triumph over Scotland, who suffered a 5-1 loss against host Germany in their first group-stage match and have won just one of their last 10 games overall. The clubs are meeting for the first time since 2006 when the Swiss defeated the Scots 3-1 in an international friendly.

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. The Swiss are -115 favorites (risk $115 to win $100) in the latest Switzerland vs. Scotland odds, while the Scots are +360 underdogs.

Why you should back Switzerland 

The Swiss have been strong defensively since battling Belarus to a 3-3 draw last October during Euro 2024 qualifying, allowing a total of five goals over their last eight matches across all competitions. The club began the year with three consecutive clean sheets before conceding just once in both a friendly against Austria on June 8 and the triumph over the Hungarians in the group-stage opener of this tournament a week later. At the other end of the pitch, Switzerland have converted eight times over their last three contests after scoring fewer than two goals in each of their previous five outings.

Breel Embolo made his first appearance with the national team since the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Saturday and made a major contribution. The 27-year-old forward scored his 14th career goal for the national team in stoppage time to clinch the victory against Hungary. Midfielder Michel Aebischer recorded a goal and an assist in the win and forward Kwadwo Duah also scored, while winger Xherdan Shaqiri tallied in two of his previous three contests prior to Euro 2024 to give him 31 goals in 123 career matches with the national team. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Scotland

The Scots have yet to officially score in the tournament as they only got on the board in their Euro 2024 opener courtesy of an own goal by Germany in the 87th minute. Midfielder Scott McTominay is the club's biggest offensive weapon, as the 27-year-old netted seven goals over nine matches in 2023 - including six during Euro 2024 qualifying. McTominay set a career high this past season with seven goals in 32 games with Manchester United of the English Premier League.

Scotland finished with two goals in each of their two international friendly matches prior to Euro 2024. Midfielder Ryan Christie opened the scoring against Gibraltar on June 3 in the 58th minute and forward Che Adams put the finishing touches on a 2-0 victory in the 85th. Striker Lawrence Shankland assisted on Christie's goal and netted one of his own four days later versus Finland, who produced an own goal in the 2-2 draw. See which team to pick here.
