Germany and Switzerland can solve this problem after two rounds of the group round.

It seemed like we were recently watching the opening match of the Euro Cup and it was time for the first matches of the second round of the group stage.

Croatia – Albania

The performance of the Croatian team in the first round was disappointing. It is clear that they were facing a strong Spanish team, but the 2022 World Cup bronze medalists conceded three goals before half-time. The Croatians had more possession of the ball and took more shots than their rivals, but does that matter? Furthermore, Zlatko Dalic’s team did not convert the penalty, but this episode could have been the beginning of a comeback.

The Albanians set a record in the first match – they scored the fastest goal in the history of the European Championship. It took them 23 seconds from the opening whistle to achieve it. It is true that this goal greatly encouraged the rival: in the 16th minute Italy was already winning 2-1. By the way, the spectators did not see any more goals in this match. Considering the position of the tournament, the next match is very important for both teams. The loser will seriously complicate their task of reaching the playoffs. Furthermore, in the last round the Croats will face the Italians and the Albanians will face the Spanish. The bookmakers consider Croatia the undisputed favorite for the second round match. The odds of her winning are 1.48 and Albania’s are 7.60.

Germany – Hungary

Few expected such a confident victory for the Germans in the opening match of the Euro Cup. Julian Nagelsmann’s team sent three-pointers to the Scots in the first half and the rival was left with ten men. In the end the Germans won 5-1, but the only goal for the British was an own goal by Antonio Rudiger. The main question is: will the Germans show such a brilliant performance in the second match? Or did they seem so powerful in the context of a weak Scotland?

The Hungarians lost the first match against Switzerland (1-3) and now find themselves in a rather difficult situation. A second defeat will seriously reduce the chances of progressing to the round of 16. Yes, you can arrive with three points, but to do so you need to improve your goal difference. By the way, the Hungarians already have experience in winning away games against Germany. In September 2022 they beat their rival (1-0) in the Nations League. In the last Euro Cup the rivals faced each other in the group and then did not determine the winner by 2:2.

Scotland – Switzerland

First of all, the Scots lost to Germany by a devastating score of 1:5. Secondly, during the entire match not a single punch was thrown. Thirdly, the expelled Ryan Porteous was suspended for two games. It is very likely that he will not play the tournament again. If the Scots lose to Switzerland, they will lose almost all chances of reaching the round of 16. In this situation, in the last round it will be necessary not only to beat Hungary, but also to do so with a very big score.

Switzerland, unlike its rival, started the Euro Cup with a victory. On June 15, Murat Yakin’s team defeated Hungary (3-1) and is currently in second place in the group. If they beat the Scots, direct access to the round of 16 will be guaranteed. The betting houses consider the Swiss to be the favorites of the match; You can bet on his victory with an odds of 1.90. In the 21st century, the rivals met four times: Switzerland always won.
