Germany vs Switzerland
Germany and Switzerland go head-to-head at the Tivoli Stadion Tirol in an international friendly match as part of their preparations for the upcoming Euros.
Since being held to a 3-3 stalemate to Switzerland in October 2020, ‘Die Mannschaft’ haven’t drawn any of their subsequent six matches (W4, L2), four of which saw the victor keep a clean sheet. However, Germany head into this encounter on the back of a disastrous 2-1 home defeat to North Macedonia in the World Cup Qualifying, meaning they’ve now failed to register a shutout in nine of their last 12 games, including friendlies. Topically, they haven’t kept a blank sheet in any of their previous six meetings with Denmark. Curiously, though, Germany have gone from three consecutive losses to Denmark to three matches against them without defeat (W1, D2). Joachim Low’s men have shown two different faces in the front third lately, netting under 1.5 goals in four of their last seven outings while scoring precisely three per game in the other three.
On the other hand, Denmark have put together three successive victories by an aggregate score of 14-0 since suffering a 4-2 away defeat to Belgium in the UEFA Nations League back in November 2020. That loss to Belgium remains Denmark’s solitary failure across their last ten matches, friendlies included (W8, D1). Virtually impenetrable at the back, the ‘Danish Dynamite’ kept a clean sheet eight times during that ten-game sequence. Another bright spot has been Denmark’s propensity for scoring, with Kasper Hjulmand’s side bagging 2+ goals in each of their last six fixtures at an average of 3.33 per game. Against this backdrop, they have netted precisely once in three of their previous four clashes against Germany.
