France v Switzerland Match Preview & Trends

France need to get back to winning ways

Bucharest is the setting for this last 16 clash between France and Switzerland. With the winners of this tie set to face the victor of the Croatia vs Spain match in the quarter-finals in St Petersburg, it should be a fascinating contest between two quality footballing sides. After two successive drawn matches, Didier Deschamps will be galvanizing his troops ready for the knockout phase. Switzerland turned on the style against Turkey and will be a threat to the French if they are anything less than their brilliant best.

Qualifying behind the rampant Italians in Group A, Switzerland have shown defensive responsibility and attacking flair. They can be a formidable opponent on their day and will not lie down for anyone. After a steady start against Wales and a heavy defeat to the Italians, Switzerland turned on the style to beat Turkey 3-1 and seal second place. Since beating Germany in the opening round, the French have flattered to deceive with two drawn games. With the quality at their disposal the World Champions will expect to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.

France covered 308.3km in the group stages and maintained a passing accuracy of 89% and averaged 51% possession. The French have made 143 passes into the attacking third with 79 of those in key areas. They have completed 7/39 crosses, which left them at 18%.

The Swiss made 116 passes into the attacking third with 55 of those in key areas. They completed 17/81 crosses, which left them at 21%.
