Euro 2020: Turkey vs Wales Preview
Wales take on Turkey as both teams prepare for their second group match in Baku tonight at 5PM ON BBC One.
It’s fair to say that Turkey struggled against Italy in Rome on Friday night as they fell to a 3-0 defeat leaving them bottom of the group. As for Wales, they earned a point on Saturday against Switzerland thanks to their attacking spearhead Kieffer Moore.
Turkey have had an extra days rest, however they must travel to Baku, where as Wales have been there since Saturday. With Wales travelling to Rome to face Italy in their last group A game on Sunday , they could ease the pressure on themselves win a win, and take a big step towards the last 16.
Turkey’s predicted XI: Uğurcan Çakır; Mehmet Zeki Çelik, Merih Demiral, Çağlar Söyüncü, Cengiz Umut Meraş; Kaan Ayhan, Ozan Tufan, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, İrfan Can Kahveci, Cengiz Ünder; Burak Yılmaz
Wales’ predicted XI: Danny Ward; Connor Roberts, Chris Mepham, Joe Rodon, Ben Davies; Joe Allen, Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Dan James, Kieffer Moore

- The 2 sides last met in 1997, where Turkey won in a World Cup qualifier in Istanbul 6-4.
- Against Italy on Friday, Turkey only attempted 3 shots, all of them being off target.
- Losing their game against Italy meant that Turkey have failed to win their first match at all of the 7 major tournament they have participated in.
- Wales have only failed to score in 1 of their last 7 European Championship matches. (The 2-0 semi-final defeat to Portugal in 2016)
- Gareth Bale has failed to score in his past 12 appearances for Wales. His longest drought since 2010.
