The winner of this match between Switzerland and France in Salvador on Friday is not only likely to finish at winners of Group E but will then almost certainly avoid Lionel Messi and Argentina in the Round of 16. If either wants to make it far in this competition you would have to suggest not playing Argentina in the next round should be high on their agenda. But which side will get the all-important three points from this one? Read on for the latest betting tips and analysis as well as our live betting odds comparison to make sure you get the best prices for every bet you place.

France looked very good in patches against a fairly brutal Honduras side (who were reduced to 10 men just before half time) but despite winning 3-0, they were never really tested by a side who will do well to win a single point in Brazil. Switzerland, meanwhile, were not wholly convincing as they relied on an injury time goal from substitute Haris Seferovic to earn a 2-1 victory over Ecuador, but they too had their positive moments.

The bookies expect Didier Deschamps’ men to triumph here, and we think the betting odds of 10/11 with William Hill for that outcome look like excellent value that should be grabbed with both hands. Switzerland are priced at 7/2 while the draw is available at betting odds of 14/5 (both with Bet365), but our money is definitely on France to win this one and march on towards the next round.
