Switzerland plays Turkey in their final Euro 2020 group game on Sunday. After both teams failed to win any Group A matches so far, here are Euro 2020 predictions – Switzerland vs Turkey.
All three points are now required in Baku to ensure a place in the knockout stages by either team.
Neither nation has been able to handle red-hot Italy or defeat Wales, placing them in a precarious situation now.
- Haris Seferovic had another poor performance in midweek, and he was pulled off at half-time. So, it’s possible that he’ll not start here, especially because of the fact that his replacement, Mario Gavranovic, performed admirably.
- Denis Zakaria, priming up for a crucial role for Switzerland this summer, didn’t even start against Italy.
Switzerland possible starting lineup: Sommer; Elvedi, Schar, Akanji; Mbabu, Freuler, Xhaka, Rodriguez; Shaqiri; Embolo, Gavranovic
- Senol Guneş, Turkey’s manager, would be completely within his rights to pull up the team. He may instead replace it with others in his squad at this stage.
- And even though that it’s exceedingly unlikely to pass, it wouldn’t surprise us if they made some tweaks on Sunday.
Turkey possible starting lineup: Cakir; Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu, Muldur; Ayhan, Tufan, Calhanoglu, Under, Yazici; Yilmaz
Euro 2020 Predictions – Switzerland vs Turkey
- Switzerland must win this match to have a chance of qualifying as one of the best third-place Group A finishers. To finish second, moreover, they’d need a massive win over Turkey and Italy to beat Wales convincingly.
- On the other hand, Turkey has been the tournament’s biggest disappointment. Many predicted them to be dark horses, but they lost against Italy and lost much worse against Wales on Wednesday. So, for them, even a victory here is unlikely to be enough to secure a third-place finish.
- Because this location is steeped in history, it will natural for tensions to rise. Turkey, though, more so than Switzerland, haven’t come close to fighting for three points thus far in this tournament.
Despite the fact that we projected neither nation to make it to the finals, both have suffered humbling experiences.
Both teams can allow their flair players, like as Xherdan Shaqiri and Hakan Calhanoglu, to get forward at will. That’s because they know now that a win – maybe by several goals – is a necessary.
As a result, an open, furious match could be on the cards. It may eventually end in a draw, though, that would send both of them out of the competition.
