Switzerland will lock horns against Turkey in the Group A match of the UEFA Euro 2020 on 20th June at Baku Olympic Stadium. Switzerland has performed poorly in the competition, with Turkey being the most disappointing and both will be looking to grab their first victory of the tournament.
Switzerland vs Turkey: Team Preview
Switzerland, who came into the competition on a six-game winning streak, have failed to maintain their rhythm. Indeed, the Swiss have only one point from their two games so far, drawing with Wales in their first match before losing 3-0 to Italy.
A huge win, along with Wales’ loss against Italy, would put Vladimir Petkovic’s squad through to the knockouts, but a draw wouldn’t improve their hopes of qualifying as the best third-placed team.
Turkey, however, came into the competition on the heels of a six-game undefeated streak. The Crescent and Stars have had a dreadful start to the competition, with back-to-back losses to Italy and Wales dropping them to the bottom of Group A.
A win here, on the other hand, might lift them over Switzerland and keep them in contention for a spot in the knockouts as one of the four best third-placed teams.
SUI vs TUR: Head to Head
Switzerland and Turkey have faced each other on nine occasions with Turkey having a clear edge winning eight games to Switzerland’s four victories. The two sides last encountered way back in 2008 in which Turkey came out on top defeating Switzerland 2-1.
