Another day in Germany and another eagerly-anticipated game from Euro 2024 as we continue with the quarter-finals. We’ve enjoyed some mouth-watering appetisers this week already. Still, tonight it’s time for the main course as England take on Switzerland in Dusseldorf in a game you can follow live on television and the best live-streaming apps, including the BBC iPlayer.

Which nation will keep their dreams alive and book a spot in the last eight? England has failed to impress so far despite starting the tournament as the hot favourite with major bookmakers. They needed extra time to get past Slovakia in the last 16, and fans demand better from Gareth Southgate’s troops. Will we see it on Saturday evening? Keep reading for our big match preview and predictions.

England Team News

England remains unbeaten in Germany, but morale is low amongst the supporters who have watched a tame Three Lions stumble from one poor performance to the next. England beat Serbia in their opening game but have drawn each of their outings since, including that uninspiring 1-1 with Slovakia.

England fell behind in that match and needed a late goal from Jude Bellingham to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. They aren’t looking like the team that made it to the finals of Euro 2020 and certainly don’t look like the pre-competition pundits’ pick. Is there more to come from Southgate’s squad?

Southgate faces an enforced change with Marc Guehi suspended after picking up another yellow card against Slovakia with Joe Gomez a possible replacement.

Switzerland Team News

Switzerland has surprised more than a few people in Germany after battling through behind Germany in a tricky Group A, despite drawing with the locals and Scotland. Critics call them an ageing side with not much more to offer, but they’re still going and have every chance of beating England and making it through to the last four.

We last saw the Swiss in action last Saturday when they upset the odds to beat Italy 2-0 and dump the holders out of the competition. Few people saw that win coming for the Swiss, but they were fully deserved victors and never looked like losing the contest. Beating the champions would’ve given the Swiss fresh confidence and belief.

The Swiss breathed a sigh of relief when learning captain Granit Xhaka was passed as fit while Silvan Widmer returns from suspension.

England vs Switzerland H2H Record and Key Numbers

Regular readers of our articles and followers of our 2024 predictions already know we like to trust the trends when attempting to call the result. This tactic has brought us joy in the past, and we’re happy to check the history books ahead of England vs Switzerland on Saturday.

The H2H numbers show these nations have met 27 times already, with England currently boasting 18 wins, with three for Switzerland and six ending in a draw. The most recent clash produced a 2-1 win for England in 2022, with the goals scored by Luke Shaw and Harry Kane. The England fans would surely accept a repeat, knowing the result is much more important than the performance.

Possible Lineups

  • England (4-2-3-1): Pickford – Trippier, Gomez, Stones, Walker – Rice, Alexander-Arnold – Foden, Bellingham, Saka – Kane
  • Switzerland (3-4-2-1): Sommer – Widmer, Elvedi, Akanji – Schar, Freuler, Xhaka, Ndoye – Duah, Zuber – Shaqiri

Where to Watch England vs Switzerland Euro 2024 – TV and Online Live Streaming

Ready to watch the big match live on television or the best live-streaming apps? English fans can follow the live play on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The fans in Switzerland can watch the game on RSI and SRF.


England has failed to live up to expectations at Euro 2024, while Switzerland is performing much better than expected. There’s no doubt the Swiss have been the better team so far, but England aren’t cooked yet, especially with the likes of Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham in their ranks.

We expect another tight game between England and Switzerland after seeing no more than one goal separate the nations in their last three meetings. Back both teams to score, and the game to end as a draw for your shot at great odds.
