Switzerland vs Greece – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see value on exploring the Swiss side, considering this is a friendly preparation match for the World Cup, competition where their opponents won’t be playing in.
Besides that, Switzerland is a more mature team, with more individual and collective quality, and they have the home advantage on their side.
Greece will struggle to win this match, because on the last 18 matches played by the Swiss, only Portugal was able to defeat them on the 90 minutes, on an absolutely decisive match that ended up giving the 1st place in the group to the Portuguese side.
I believe that, in the worst-case scenario, our bet will be void.
