Switzerland VS Turkey LIVE Football Match Score June 6/20/2021
For both these teams it is win or bust. Switzerland, who drew with Wales then lost to Italy, can still finish second on goal difference if they win and the Dragons lose to the Azzurri in Rome, though victory is required regardless to at least stay in contention to be a best third-placed team. After two losses, Turkey need victory to end in third place and will probably need to improve their goal difference with none scored and five conceded.
All or nothing for Switzerland, who need a win against Turkey to have any hope of a place in the next round. There are positive vibes in the training camp, and the team is convinced they’ll play well. Goal difference could be crucial, so expect an attacking approach, with Xherdan Shaqiri the key man in setting up the two strikers. Vladimir Petković won’t change his system, but we might see some different faces from the start.
Having been eliminated at the group stage three times before a last-16 exit five years ago, Switzerland are in danger of underperforming on the continental stage again, after a lacklustre start to their Group A campaign.
Ranked 13th in the world, La Nati had won six games in a row coming into these Championships – in a run which stretched back to last November – but have now picked up only one point from two Euro 2020 outings.
After conceding a lead to draw with Wales and then being thumped 3-0 by an impressive Italy side last time out in Rome, the Swiss have now won only two of their 15 fixtures at Euros past and present.
At Stadio Olimpico, on Wednesday, Switzerland barely threatened the well-drilled Italian rearguard despite sharing possession almost equally, with Haris Seferovic and Breel Embolo labouring fruitlessly up front.
Following that deflating defeat, coach Vladimir Petkovic will be dismayed that his team’s destiny is no longer in their own hands, but they could yet finish second in the group and assure safe passage to the last 16.
However, Switzerland will require Wales to lose to a potentially much-changed Azzurri to do so, while also needing to post a better goal difference than Robert Page’s buoyant side.
