Switzerland vs Turkey: Euros preview and predictions

Letting a lead slip against Wales before being brushed aside by Italy has left the Swiss licking their wounds, while Turkey went down timidly to the same teams.

Switzerland can still finish second, though will need Wales to lose to already qualified Italy and have a better goal difference, while Turkey’s best chance is as one of the four best third-placed teams.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Switzerland vs Turkey is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off today (Sunday, June 20, 2021).

The match will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Switzerland vs Turkey team news and lineups

Switzerland shuffled their defence while Turkey refreshed their midfield. The Swiss, who have one point after their opening two matches, changed their back line formation with Silvan Widmer preferred to Kevin Mbabu, while Fabian Schar was dropped, moving Ricardo Rodri­guez into defence and allowing Steven Zuber to come in on the left wing.

Turkey, who lost to Italy and Wales, have a new-look midfield trio of Kaan Ayhan, Ozan Tufan and Irfan Can, with Hakan CalhanogŸlu occupying the left flank. Can comes into the line-up along with Merih Demiral and Mert Muldur.

Switzerland vs Turkey prediction

Switzerland must pick their heads up after a humbling by Italy, but have the quality to do so against the weakest team in Group A.

Turkey’s hopes have quickly evaporated and are hanging on by the skin of their teeth.

I expect a nervy Swiss win. 1-0.
