Why Bet on Portugal

Portugal qualified first in Group H, although in the last game they lost to South Korea (2-1) in a game they played with their substitutes. The Portuguese team achieved their spot in the next round thanks to their victories against Ghana (3-2) and Uruguay (2-0) but they are not a convincing team, although they already won with this style the Eurocup and the UEFA Nations League not long ago.

Despite having Cristiano Ronaldo, at the moment the great star of the team is Bruno Fernandes and Portugal is going at the pace he sets. He was the figure in the two games that were victorious, giving 2 assists against Ghana and scoring 2 goals versus Uruguay.

Something that Fernando Santos will have to deal with his injuries. The center-back/midfielder Danilo Pereira was unable to play the last 2 games and it is believed that he could return against Switzerland, but it is still a doubt, as is the midfielder Otávio, who was not there this Friday either. On the other hand, Nuno Mendes will miss the rest of the World Cup.

Why Bet on Switzerland

Don’t get stuck with the fact that Switzerland qualified second and in the last game. The European team had a good group stage, where they beat Cameroon (1-0) and Serbia (3-2), and lost against Brazil (1-0), although it should be noted that they played well against the South Americans and that the goal came in the last part of the game.

The Swiss have a base that has been playing for some time and is quite orderly. Also, Breel Embolo is in a very good moment. Both when attacking and defending, there is a lot of camaraderies, something important in these short tournaments, where any setback sends you home.

Against Serbia, in the last match, they could not count on two of their best players such as Yann Sommer and Nico Elvedi, who were ill, but coach Murat Yakin hopes to count on them for the round of 16.

Final Betting Analysis: Portugal vs. Switzerland 

Great match in the round of 16 between two European teams that have good players and also have some shortcomings. It will be very even and although we believe that the Swiss are a bit better as a team, the individualities of the Portuguese will come out and it will be a draw.

At MyBookie.ag we find that Portugal is the clear favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -114, while Switzerland has +346 and the draw is +242.

The last time they met was on June 12 of this year in the UEFA Nations League and Switzerland won, in Geneva, 1-0 with a goal from Haris Seferovic after a minute of play. A few days earlier, Portugal had won 4-0 in Lisbon with a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Go for a draw in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the draw at +242, you will gain $242 for a total payout of $342.
