5pm The Euro 2024 Quarter-Finals continue on BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE with the bottom half of the draw on Saturday! We have another two fascinating games, but all eyes will be England v Switzerland to start the evening! England’s performances have been the major talking point of Euro 2024 thus far – to put it bluntly they have been woeful but they remain favourites to win the tournament. The draw is obviously a key factor there, but there has been a huge debate around their Outright price of 5.0 this week. That does look on the short side given their performances but we all know they have the talent in the squad to produce some world class performances.

The criticism, given the amount of quality in the squad, has been directed at Gareth Southgate. As I said before the Slovakia game when you have a system where Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane and Phil Foden aren’t playing well you simply need to change it. They have been among the best players in the world this season for their clubs. In my opinion, the left back position has been a major issue for England and Southgate needs to change that. Southgate has shown over the past years that he is quite set in his ways however; I’m sure the England team news is going to be a hot topic!

We’re going to have an exceptionally interesting market here. This is probably the most interesting betting market of the year in my opinion; on one hand you have the group of people who will believe their eyes and go off the recent England performances while on the other hand you will have a group of people who place bets based off ratings and talent in the squad. It’s going to be very interesting to see does the market move before kick off, and which way it goes. England come into the game as favourites at 2.31 with Switzerland 4.0 and the draw is 3.05 at the time of writing.

England’s lack of chances created has been a big talking point; they have been pretty toothless going forward. Their games in the Group stage has the lowest xG figures – two games actually finished with a lower combined xG than any Premier League game last season. The positive to say about England is although they haven’t fired going forward, they have been rock solid at the back. Southgate is definitely a cagey manager, and he does focus on being solid at the back – he has achieved this but at the cost of creating good quality chances. Switzerland have definitely been better going forward and they have played better football too. They came very close to beating Germany in their final Group game and then beat Italy easily in the Last 16. That injury time goal for Germany actually worked out well for Switzerland given they ended up on the easy side of the draw!

As I said above, it’s really a battle here between the talent of the England squad v the actual performances. It’s not like they are creating a lot of chances and not converting them – they are really struggling to create chances. There’s no doubt that Switzerland have played the better football, and I feel the best option here is the England lay at 2.31. I’m not going to go crazy with the stakes because obviously they do have the players to produce a performance – the reality is I feel Southgate isn’t giving them the right system or platform to be successful. Another option is Under 2.5 goals – we have had plenty of success with Unders in England games at Euro 2024 – however this is trading 1.56 and I don’t feel that price offers as much value as the England lay at 2.31. A fascinating game ahead!

The Ultra Says:
Three points lay (liability) England to beat Switzerland at 2.31 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE.
