class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>No team has been crowned European champions on more occasions than La Roja and Goal is backing the three-time winners in their Euro 2020 quarter-final
Switzerland’s reward for spectacularly knocking out France in the last 16 of Euro 2020 is a quarter-final clash with Spain in St Petersburg on Friday.
Vladimir Petkovic’s side are clear outsiders against the European champions from 1964, 2008 and 2012, yet having prevailed against the current World Cup holders, the Swiss will fear no side in the competition.

Switzerland vs Spain preview
Few would have had the Swiss down as quarter-finalists before the tournament started and their historic triumph against the overwhelming favourites for the trophy is one of the biggest shocks in recent memory.
Indeed, progress to the last eight looked even more unlikely after Switzerland were beaten 3-0 by Italy in their second group game, and defensively Vladimir Petkovic’s men have been far from solid.
Yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition, the Swiss on Friday face a Spain side that have really clicked in the final third with six different Spaniards getting their names on the scoresheet in the last two matches.
Luis Enrique’s men have been steadily improving and, after stuttering to two draws in their opening two matches, La Roja have netted five goals in each of their last two games.
Having conceded three times to both Italy and France, there could be some interest in backing Switzerland to ship some more goals in Russia.
Switzerland vs Spain tips & predictions
Spain can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) to score over 1.5 goals which looks like an appealing option, while combining this with a victory for La Roja sees the odds rise to 23/20 (2.15).
