At the National Arena on Monday, France and Switzerland will take center stage to decide worthy entrants to the quarterfinal of this showcase.
France started the competition well with a 1-0 victory over Germany but went on to record draws against Hungary and Portugal.
Switzerland had a rough start, drawing 1-1 against Wales and losing 3-0 to Italy. However, the Red Crosses bounced back in crunch time with a 3-1 victory over Turkey. The game should be a real cracker.
France to win fairly easily
Although they experienced some bumps in the group stages, France have exhibited an all-round quality which would come in handy during the knockout stages.
Kylian Mbappe will doubt cause some problems. However, Karim Benzema has been arguably the brightest star for France so far and will be expected to lead his team to the win.
Switzerland have the likes of Granit Xhaka and Shaqiri but the duo lack the needed firepower to truly trouble Les Bleus.
France are huge favorites to win this game, with their odds priced at 1.61 by Betway. Switzerland, in comparison, are pinned at 5.77. A draw has been priced at 3.77.
France predicted XI: Lloris, Hernandez, Kimpembe, Varane, Kounde, Kante, Pogba, Mbappe, Griezmann, Tolisso, Benzema
Switzerland predicted XI: Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodriguez, Widmer, Freuler, Xhaka, Zuber, Shaqiri, Seferovic, Embolo
