Wales will kick off their Euro 2020 journey against Switzerland in the Group A fixture at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan on Saturday, 12th June at 2:00 pm BST/ 6:30 pm IST.

WAL vs SUI Dream11 Prediction: Wales vs Switzerland Team Preview
Wales will be hoping for another bold performance at the Euros after a spectacular journey to the semi-finals in 2016 when they were defeated by eventual champions Portugal. This time, though, just eight members of that team have been called up, and even they are not the same players as before. However, with the mix of youth and experience, they might turn out to be a surprise package.
Meanwhile, Switzerland‘s appearance in the Round of 16 in the 2016 European Championship was their best in the competition. With a 2-1 triumph over the United States and a 7-0 thumping of rivals Liechtenstein, they extended their winning streak across all competitions. Switzerland is another squad that might emerge as the tournament’s dark horse, having enjoyed a strong run of play leading up to the Euros.

Gareth Bale will be leading Wales in Euro 2020 and will be a key member of the squad. He is coming off a decent run in Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur scoring 11 goals in 20 appearances.
Aaron Ramsey will be very vital for Wales in their clash against Switzerland. He’s known for his pushing sprints forward and offensive skills in the midfield and also has the ability of crisp passing.
Granit Xhaka has been an integral member of the Switzerland squad. He acts like a wall in the midfield and controls the gameplay. Xhaka can also make-shift as a dependable left-back whenever required.
Xherdan Shaqiri is one of the undoubted aces for Switzerland. He loves to play on the right-wing and cut in on his stronger left foot. Shaqiri is quick, technical, and physically strong which makes him a lethal weapon on any side.
