The Group A clash will be the first meeting between these nations since 2006. It was a regularly-played fixture to that point, with Scotland holding an 8-5 head-to-head advantage with the two sharing three draws.

Scotland made the worst possible start to their Euro 2024 campaign as they were thrashed 5-1 by hosts Germany in the tournament’s opening match — finding themselves 3-0 down by half-time. There were no such problems for Switzerland, who put in a dominant performance to beat Hungary 3-1.

Murat Yakin’s side are the favourites to take all three points in Cologne but Steve Clarke will hope his side can pounce on any complacency with Switzerland already having three points in the bag. Scotland’s hopes of reaching the knockout rounds would take a huge hit if they were to lose again.

Ryan Porteus was sent off for a terrible challenge on Ilkay Gundogan in the opening match against Germany and unless Scotland mount an unlikely run into the knockout rounds, his tournament is over. Grant Hanley should replace the Watford man.

Clarke may also be tempted to start Brighton’s Billy Gilmour in a bid to improve Scotland’s composure on the ball.

Yakin faces a headache up-front, with Kwadwo Duah scoring on in his competitive debut against Hungary, while the talismanic Breel Embolo also netted despite playing just 16 minutes from the bench.
