Ace Football previews the Group A match between Switzerland and Turkey in Euro 2020 and offers betting tips, odds, predictions, and form guides.
Switzerland take on Turkey with Baku Olimpiya Stadionu, as the stage. It is one of 12 matches in round 3 of the group stages at the Euro 2020 and takes place this Sunday. The Swiss enter the tournament as number 13 in the FIFA world rankings, thus signifying the gap between these teams as Turkey come here with a ranking of number 29.
Booking a place at the Euros perhaps provided a little more excitement than Switzerland dreamed of, but they proved to have enough quality for 1st place in the group.
Turkey head into their match knowing they have real quality in their ranks even if results suggest otherwise. They will most likely exit the tournament, with the team down in 4th place in Group A without a single point. But odds suggests a result in Baku is not beyond them.
Stats and Analysis
Switzerland would have hoped for more than 1 point to show after their first two matches, and definitely need a win to have a chance of seeing the next round.
It has so far been a disappointing tournament with two defeats for Turkey, who will be eager to claim their first point at the Euro’s.
