Watch Switzerland vs Turkey Live Stream

Euro 2020 Finals encounter, with Switzerland taking on Turkey on Sunday the 20th of June, 2021, at Baku Olympic Stadium.

After drawing 1-1 with Wales on their Euro 2020 finals debut, Switzerland visited Italy for their second game, one in which it was made all too obvious from early on that they were up against a… simply put, much better team; the Swiss went 1-0 down in the 26th minute, 2-0 down early in the second half, and all that changed after that was that the Italians added a third goal in the 89th minute. Switzerland’s current form reads; LDWWW. Things may look sort of bleak, 

being on just one point from two matches, but… realistically, they are one win away from qualifying for the last 16. They finish third even if they draw with Turkey, but on just two points, their chances of being among the four best third-placed teams would be… practically non-existent. Five years ago, in the Euro 2016 finals, there were two teams that qualified for the last 16 despite finishing the group stage on just three points. Four should be more than enough, but to reach that… 

magic number, Switzerland need to beat Turkey. Coach Vladimir Petković played a 3-4-1-2 formation against Italy the other day, with Seferović and Embolo up front. Just for the record, Switzerland can still finish 2nd, leapfrogging Wales, but their -3 goal difference, combined with Wales’ +2, means that the Swiss need to win by several goals, hoping that Italy will beat Wales by a couple of goals or more.

Turkey’s situation in the group table is much more complicated than that of Switzerland. After losing 3-0 to Italy and 2-0 to Wales, they have no point and a -5 goal difference. As previously mentioned, back in 2016, there were two teams that made it to the last 16 despite earning only three points from their group matches. Mind you though, both those teams finished on a neutral goal difference (0),

 not negative. In other words, to have real chances of being one of the best four third-placed teams, Turkey need A) to win (that is self-evident) and B) to win BIG. Their current form reads; LLWDW. Coach Şenol Güneş played a 4-1-4-1 formation against Wales the other day, with Yılmaz up front.

Switzerland and Turkey have met 15 times in the past and it’s the Turks who have a clearly favourable record; 8W, 3D, 4L. Goals in total, 21-20 for Turkey. They have actually met once before in Euro finals, back in 2008, on Swiss soil; the Turks won that game as well, 1-2. Coincidentally, that is the last game they played against each other, they have not met since, not even in a friendly.

A 2-1 victory for Turkey is predicted at full-time.
Date: Sunday, 20th of June, 2021.
Venue: Baku Olympic Stadium
Kick-off time: 18:00 (GMT+2).
