Euro 2024 – Group A: Switzerland vs Germany Tips, TV and Betting Preview

The top spot in Group A is on the line in the other match in Euro 2024 on Sunday night when the tournament hosts Germany look to make it through unscathed when they take on Switzerland in Frankfurt.

Germany go into the final group game knowing that if they avoid defeat they will top the group whereas a Switzerland win would see them leaving the group in top spot. Winning the group is likely to run you into Denmark while coming second could see a clash with Italy or Croatia.

Where to watch

The match will be shown live and in full on the BBC 2 channel in the UK with the build-up to the contest beginning at 7.30pm ahead of the 8pm kick off.


The Swiss go into their final group match knowing that barring a real bizarre set of events they are through to the next stage in the top two so they can attack this clash and see if they can pick up the win which would make their route deeper into the latter stages in the competition. They largely broke the back of this group with their win over Hungary in their first game and then they avoided catastrophe against Scotland in their second one.

Switzerland have really looked a much more vibrant side going forward in this tournament than they have done at previous competitions they have qualified for. A much younger, vibrant attacking set of players are expressing themselves well and with no major competitive pressure on this one you would imagine that will remain the case here. The question mark as they move deeper into the tournament will be whether their defence is strong enough and the jury is out on that one.


It has been a wonderful tournament so far for the host nation Germany. In fact, if you had asked any German person what they would have wanted from their opening two matches their team have pretty much delivered it. Their opening win against Scotland was the sort of win that made an early statement and although they weren’t quite as emphatic in beating Hungary in their second one they were more than good enough to get the job done and now they can approach this last group game as they wish knowing that they have already qualified.

You would imagine that there will be a bit of squad rotation at some point in this match so we will find out just how strong the squad depth is for Germany at this tournament. We have certainly seen that they can offer plenty in the attacking parts of the pitch. We haven’t really seen their defence tested too much but Hungary created the sort of chances that bigger and better teams would exploit later in the competition so that might be a concern.

Team News

Murat Yakin has suggested that every player in his squad is available for this match but he didn’t confirm that Breel Embolo would be available from the start having come off the bench in the first two games. If he can start he might be given the nod here.

Julian Nagelsmann has suggested that he won’t be rotating his squad for this match even though Germany have already qualified. Whether he stays true to that line remains to be seen when a booking for Jonathan Tah, Robert Andrich, Antonio Rudiger or Maximilian Mittelstadt would rule them out of the last 16 match.


I’m never a big fan of betting on these matches where although managers tell us they will play their strongest side, when we see the team sheets come out that isn’t actually the case. We might not know for sure how the two teams line up in this one but the one thing we do know is that there is no competitive pressure on the game and so two attacks which have impressed so far in the competition can continue to flourish without having to worry too much about the consequences.

The one thing I have noticed in the matches these two have been involved in is the amount of corners they have racked up. Germany have earned 16 corners in this tournament despite their opening game being an absolute rout while Switzerland have 14 to their name even though their primary aim in their second match was avoiding defeat. An average Scotland side who played largely on the counter won five corners against Switzerland while Hungary enjoyed seven of them against the Germans. With two teams who attack with quality and can be got at out wide I expect the corner count to reach double figures here.
