International Friendly betting tips: England v Switzerland

AC Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez says Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing him this summer.

England look to bounce back from defeat to Spain, but face a Switzerland side who will be no pushovers. Our best bets for the night include a 22/1 each-way shot.


England and Switzerland to draw at 13/5
England weren’t bad in their 2-1 defeat to Spain, but they weren’t great either. This is in many ways a tougher test, a game they will be expected to win against a country that churns out the results year after year.

Switzerland come into this game on the back of a thumping 6-0 win over an Iceland side shorn of several big names by injury and post-World Cup retirements and certainly won’t fear takin on the Three Lions.

They drew 1-1 with Brazil at the World Cup and away at Spain just before it and look decent value to leave Wembley with honours even against an England side that has now lost two and drawn one (in 90 minutes) of their last three games.

Even if we exclude the third-place play-off defeat with a changed side against Belgium – and we probably shouldn’t given England will make changes again here – then there are two 1-1 draws at 90 minutes in their last four matches.


1-1 draw at 11/2
And those stats for both sides suggest it’s also worth taking a stab at the correct score market here.


Ricardo Rodriguez e.w. first goalscorer at 22/1
Looks a big price for a man who scored in successive friendlies against Spain and Japan as recently as June, just before the World Cup, and also takes penalties.
