After suffering a humiliating defeat to Italy, Switzerland come into matchday three in search of their first win in this showcase. Manuel Locatelli’s brace and a strike from Ciro Immobile ensured a 3-0 defeat for the Red Crosses.
Switzerland have earned just one point so far but still have a chance to reach the round of 16 via one of the best third placed teams if they manage to grab all three points on Sunday.
Turkey go into the final round of matches on the back of two straight defeats without registering a goal. Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts found the net for Wales on matchday two, leaving Turkey’s chances of qualifying to the knockout stages hanging on a thread. They will need nothing less than a victory.
Switzerland to register first win
Switzerland have not enjoyed a good campaign so far but will likely find some joy from their upcoming battle against Turkey.
The likes of Breel Embolo and Granit Xhaka have enough quality to overpower The Crescent-Stars who have endured a worse run in this competition.
In the end, Turkey are expected to exit the tournament early with no point to their name.
Switzerland are huge favorites to win this one, with their odds priced at 1.66 by Betway and Turkey have their odds pinned at 4.85. A draw has been priced at 3.95.
Switzerland predicted XI: Sommer, Akanji, Schar, Elvedi, Rodriguez, Xhaka, Freuler, Mbabu, Shaqiri, Embolo, Seferovic
