Switzerland and Spain, the two victors from a barnstorming night of Euro 2020 action, meet on Friday in the first quarter-final.

The Swiss dispatched the tournament favourites France on penalties after a 3-3 draw, having already seen Spain see off Croatia in an eight-goal thriller.

It's to Saint Petersburg next, then, with a place in the semi-finals, where the winner will face either Italy or Belgium.

Switzerland vs Spain is scheduled for an 5pm BST kick-off on Friday, July 2, 2021.

The match will be held at Gazprom Arena in Saint-Petersburg.

Switzerland vs Spain prediction

The absence of Granit Xhaka is huge for Switzerland and likely to be crucial to the final result. The Arsenal midfielder has been influential throughout the tournament and Spain are firm favourites, if they weren’t already, with him ruled out.

Spain have found their scoring touch, but are still so weak at the back. Expecting goals in this one.
