Preview

Matchday 2 of the UEFA Euro 2024 kicks off on Wednesday, with Switzerland facing Scotland in the final fixture of the day. These two nations lock horns at RheinEnergieStadion in a 3 p.m. ET showdown that could decide who progresses and who crashes out of the tournament with one game to spare.

Scotland had the honor of kicking off the tournament, facing hosts Germany in the opening game on Friday. Unfortunately, despite boasting legions of admirable and vibrant supporters in Munich, the Tartan Army was treated to a historic defeat, losing 5-1 to the continental giants.

Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz tormented Steve Clarke's men, with the Bundesliga starlets grabbing a goal each to leave Scotland 2-0 down inside the first 20 minutes of the game. 

And to make things worse, Ryan Porteous was shown a straight red card after conceding a penalty thanks to a horrendous tackle on Ilkay Gundogan, with Kai Havertz converting from the spot. An unfortunate Antonio Rudiger own goal gave Andy Robertson and Co. something to smile about but even that was short-lived as Niclas Füllkrug and Emre Can also got on the scoresheet to leave Scotland bottom of the table.

This means anything but a victory on Wednesday should rule out a top-two finish for the Scottish. A third-place finish could still see Clarke's crew progress to the round of 16 but Group A's bottom team must avoid defeat.

Sadly, their form makes for a gloomy read. Despite enjoying an electric start to their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, Clarke's men have been atrocious recently, winning only once in their last 10 matches. That sole victory came against Gibraltar in a friendly earlier this month, with Ryan Christie and Che Adams getting on the scoresheet.

Switzerland, on the other hand, enter this fixture high on confidence after kicking off their campaign with an impressive victory in their opening game.

Nati faced Hungary a day after Scotland's historic defeat to Germany and came away with a 3-1 win to move level on points with Julian Nagelsmann's Group A leaders. However, this does not mean Switzerland were without fault.

Murat Yakin's men entered half-time with a 2-0 lead thanks to lovely goals from Kwadwo Duah and Michel Aebischer. However, Xhaka and Co. let control of the game slip and endured a nervy ending after conceding in the 66th minute.

Fortunately for the central European nation, Breel Embolo, who came off the bench, killed off the game after dinking the keeper deep into stoppage time to get on the scoresheet. This means the Swiss are one win away from securing their round of 16 spot with a game to spare — though a draw could still suffice.

That win was Switzerland's seventh victory from their last 14 group-stage matches at a major tournament, with Nati losing only twice during this run (D5). Additionally, Yakin's men have gone unbeaten in all but one match since their 2022 FIFA World Cup round of 16 elimination at the hands of Portugal.

The odds favor Xhaka and Co. on Wednesday. However, they were troubled by the Hungarians for large portions of the game in their Group A opener and will need a disciplined performance if they wish to avoid a repeat on Matchday 2.

Team news

Scotland: Ryan Porteous is suspended for this game and their final group-stage tie against Hungary following his straight red card on the opening day. In his absence, one of Grant Hanley or Scott McKenna is expected to deputize, most likely the earlier. Che Adams will lead the line despite being anonymous against Germany and will be joined in the lineup by Premier League trio Kieran Tierney, Andy Robertson, and Scott McTominay.

Switzerland: Steven Zuber is a doubt for the Swiss. Meanwhile, Denis Zakaria has returned to training but is unlikely to start this game. The biggest question is whether Breel Embolo will return to the lineup or not after overcoming a lengthy ACL injury.

Key stats 

  • Friday's 5-1 loss to Germany was the heaviest opening-day defeat in history at the men's European Championship.

  • That result was also Scotland's second-heaviest defeat ever at a major tournament, with their 7-0 loss to Uruguay at the 1954 FIFA World Cup sitting ahead.

  • Steve Clarke's men are at risk of losing their first two matches of a major tournament for the fourth time, having done so at the 1954 World Cup, 1986 World Cup, and Euro 1992.

  • This will be only the second encounter between these two nations at a major tournament, with Scotland beating Switzerland 1-0 in the group stage of Euro 1996.

  • However, Nati boast a superior head-to-head record in their last five encounters, winning two and drawing two (D1).

  • The last run-in between these two teams was in March 2006, with Switzerland winning 3-1.

  • Breel Embolo became only the second Swiss player in history to score at three major tournaments for his national team following his goal in the 3-1 win over Hungary.
