Betting tip: Switzerland 2-1 Turkey

There is no question that neither Switzerland nor Turkey will be happy with their Euro 2020 campaign’s thus far. The Swiss really should have taken all three points against a determined Wales in their opening fixture, and their inability to stave off another rampant Italy performance in their 3-0 loss to the group leaders now sees them needing a win by multiple goals to give them any chance to progress. They will come to grips with Turkey who have hands-down been the worst team of the tournament thus far when compared to the noise around their camp before play began. Now with nothing to lose, and the likelihood of progressing into the knockout stages being slim at best, Turkey is free to play without fear but still has so much to prove. On balance, Switzerland should be able to get a result and hope it is enough, but as we have seen already this summer, anything is possible.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Switzerland – Yes

There have been few redeeming qualities with what Turkey has brought to the table this summer, and truthfully, Switzerland has not been all that impressive either. Both were completely run through by Italy to the tune of 3-0 defeats while the pair also struggled to truly make Wales sweat on a regular basis. The Swiss on balance is a bit better in possession overall (55.1% vs 48.9%) and can probably boast a squad that has better balance across all areas of the pitch, while goals can come from multiple (eight players have 8-goals or more for the national team) sources as opposed to Turkey who rely so heavily on Burak Yilmaz. Turkey has yet to score this summer but does have it in them if they’re on song. It should be close, but the Swiss should see it out.

Winning Margin: Switzerland +1

The fact that Switzerland and Turkey have just one goal between them through group play thus far does not fill many with confidence that this will be a barn burner, despite the desperate situation both nations face for their prospects of progressing to the knockout stages. Switzerland does hold the edge over their opponents across every basic data point (shots, possession %, passing %, and duels won %), and with more goal options across the squad, the Swiss really should find three points here when all things are considered.

Switzerland vs Turkey betting tips: Match preview

Despite Wales’ unexpected success at Euro 2016, Switzerland came into this summer’s tournament as a nation expected to advance to the knockout stages and brought a good run of results with them in the run-up to proceedings. But the same issues that have plagued the Swiss in years past have cropped up once again, namely, a real lack of consistency in front of goal.

Criticism must certainly be levied in the direction of both Haris Seferović and Mario Gavranović as neither has set the world alight thus far. In fact, Seferović has been downright poor thus far, and Gavranović can barely claim much better than that. Breel Embolo, so long touted as the forward to change Swiss fortunes in front of goal, is the owner of his nation’s only goal at Euro 2020 thus far, and questions still remain whether or not there is enough efficient firepower in Vladimir Petković’s squad to get the job done.

Other than Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka, the lack of other creative outlets certainly must bear a chunk of the responsibility for Switzerland’s tepid nature in the final third, and one has to wonder when the likes of FC Augsburg’s Ruben Vargas, or BSC Young Boys’ Christian Fassnacht, will be given a chance to add something to the Swiss attack at the tournament. The reliance on wing-back pair Ricardo Rodríguez and Kevin Mbabu has not panned out to the level that both of those players are capable (and have shown at club level consistently), and a change of shape on the pitch should certainly be considered by Petković if the Swiss are to have any chance of putting their names into the hat for progression to the knockout stage.

Turkey amidst a summer to forget at Euro 2020

Heading into Euro 2020 this summer, many labeled Turkey as a potential dark horse to watch. On paper, Senol Günes’ squad is both gifted and experienced, while the beginnings of a new generation of talent have begun to crack into the full national side as well. But heading into the last matchday of group play, Turkey has been the worst side of the tournament while having failed to find a single goal along the way.

A 3-0 demolition job handed down by Italy could not have been a worse start for Ay-Yildizlilar, and failure to bounce back against a determined Wales with defeat the result again has dashed Turkish hopes this summer. What remains frustrating is that thus far, Turkey has not been as good as the sum of their parts, and recent results for them dating back to 2020 show a side that is quite capable of finding goals, with high-scoring draws earned against Germany, Serbia, and Croatia added to big wins against the Netherlands, Norway, and Russia. But tactically Turkey has been stale this summer, and much of that has come down to one key factor; the over-reliance on Burak Yilmaz for the goals and Hakan Çalhanoglu to pull the strings.

There really should be much more attacking flair on offer, and perhaps that needed to require more faith in the young core that exists in this squad, with 10 of the 26 players being 23-years old or younger. The likes of Halil Dervisoglu, Kerem Aktürkoglu, Abdülkadir Ömür, Orkun Kökçü, Ridvan Yilmaz, and Ozan Kabak are budding youngsters in Turkish football but have not been given a real chance to help the reigns be stripped away. With nothing to lose in their final group match, Günes could go with a very young XI (the average age of Turkey’s squad is 24.5) and hope the added youthful exuberance of a new generation carries the day.

Switzerland team news vs Turkey

There are no fitness concerns for Switzerland boss Vladimir Petković as they go into the final day of group play needing a convincing performance against Turkey.

Some changes could be seen to the matchday XI, and though it is expected with a back-three to be kept, others the likes of Mario Gavranović, Denis Zakaria, Christian Fassnacht, and Ruben Vargas could be in contention to start if there is indeed a change in shape.

Turkey team news vs Switzerland

Turkey has unquestionably been the most disappointing combatant this summer at Euro 2020, and there is no excuse for head coach Senol Günes to not ring in the changes and hope something sticks.

There has been a real lack of true creativity from any corner of the side thus far, so Günes’ biggest task at hand must be to change one (or both of) his shape and the XI to try to find any and all avenues that they can find goals in a last-day performance that is still likely to not be good enough to see them finish amongst the best third-place nations.
