Wales and Turkey face off at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan in a big Euro 2020 match.

Wales and Turkey face off at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan in a big Euro 2020 match. For this matchday two of Group A, here are our Euro 2020 predictions – Turkey vs Wales.

In their first match, the Dragons drew 1-1 with Switzerland, just as we predicted in our football updates.

Meanwhile, hosts Italy thrashed Turkey 3-0 in both teams’ debut Euro 2020 fixture.

Team news

Turkey

  • Turkey’s performance against Italy was dismal. So, it will be surprising if they didn’t change their line-up for their match against Wales on Wednesday.
  • Cengiz Under, Irfan Can Kahveci, and Kaan Ayhan are all vying for a spot in the starting lineup.
  • After playing on the wing against Italy, on the other hand, Hakan Calhanoglu could start in the center here.

Turkey possible starting lineup: Cakir; Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu; Meras; Under, Yazici, Yokuslu, Kahveci, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz

Wales

  • After Kieffer Moore scored Wales’ equalizer against Switzerland, Harry Wilson may have to settle for a bench spot once again.
  • Danny Ward got the nod in goal for Wales’ opening and his solid performance justifies if he’s selected again here.
  • On Wednesday, Ethan Ampadu might replace either Joe Allen or Joe Morrell in midfield.
  • Beyond this, Wales is unlikely to make any other changes unless they switch to a back three.

Wales possible starting lineup: Ward; Roberts, Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Allen, Morrell; Bale, Ramsey, James; Moore

Euro 2020 Predictions – Turkey vs Wales

  • Many called Turkey a dark horse heading into the tournament, only for them to lose 3-0 against Italy on Friday.
  • Meanwhile, Wales were fortunate to draw 1-1 with Switzerland on Friday. And goalkeeper Danny Ward was instrumental in securing the one draw point.
  • For Wales, however, scoring goals has been a major issue. In as many as 12 of their last 13 games, they haven’t even scored more than once.
  • Turkey’s recent results have been more stunning than Wales’, therefore, but their performance against Italy is still cause for concern.

We knew, and predicted, that Group A was always going to be dominated by draws. That’s because there are so many closely ranked nations – heavyweights Italy apart – facing off here.

This time too, both teams will be looking for three points from this encounter, but we a draw. A tie in Baku on Wednesday will keep the outcome of this group wide open to speculation.

Our Prediction: Turkey 1-1 Wales
