Euro 2016

Match Preview Albania vs Switzerland - Euro 2016

Albania vs Switzerland face up for the second game of Euro 2016 

With Switzerland being in England’s group for the qualifying stages and finishing second, with only England finishing above them. Meanwhile, Albania finished second in group I finishing above the likes of Denmark and Serbia but Portugal were the ones who finished top of the group. Out of the previous 6 times they have played each other, Switzerland have came out on top on 5 occasions and the other game finishing 1-1. It will also be the battle of the brothers between Granit Xhaka who plays for Switzerland, and Tauant Xhaka who represents Albania

Many will be expecting Switzerland to win with arguably more recognised players than the Albanians with some of their well-known players playing in the Premier League. Albania know that they are the underdogs for this match but will still be optimistic that they may be able to gain some points in their opening game in Group A.

I personally think that Switzerland will come out with a victory as with the players they have are more technical with the likes of Shaqiri will be the stand out player in the game so the final score will be 2-0 to the Swiss with Shaqiri getting a brace if you agree with me let me known on  Twitter @connor52revill or follow @OfficialTFF and let them know.


Here is the predicted line up for both teams (Source: Uefa)

Albania: Berisha; Hysaj, Cana, Mavraj, Agolli; Kukeli, Xhaka, Roshi, Abrashi, Lenjani; Sadiku.

Switzerland: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Schär, Djourou, Rodríguez; Behrami, Džemaili, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Seferović, Mehmedi.
