Turkey vs Wales – Euro 2020 Finals Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Euro 2020 Finals encounter, with Turkey taking on Wales on Wednesday the 16th of June, 2021, at Baku Olympic Stadium.

Turkey faced Italy on their debut, last Friday, did well in the first half, at least defensively, kept the Italians quiet, but once Demiral inadvertently sent the ball into his own net in the 53rd minute, it was rather obvious that Turkey simply did not have what it took to avoid defeat. Italy’s second goal in the 66th minute felt… normal, and it was no surprise that they went on to win 3-0, as they were clearly superior onto the pitch. Turkey’s current form reads; LWDWD. No point for them, but of course things in the group table would change drastically with a win of theirs over Wales. Coach Şenol Güneş played a 4-1-4-1 formation against Italy last Friday, with Yilmaz up front. As previously mentioned, it was a Turk, Demiral, a Juventus player, who inadvertently opened the scoring in the 53rd minute, doing a very… clumsy job in his effort to clear the ball.

Wales debuted in the group against Switzerland on Saturday, looked… annoyingly passive until early in the second half when they went 0-1 down, changed their attitude, started visiting Switzerland’s box, equalized in the 74th minute, and right after that they went back to being the… annoyingly passive team we had seen in the first 49 minutes. Inexplicable… Switzerland is a more than decent team, but they are not… France, it is hard to understand why a team like Wales played like that, sort of being unfair to their own self. Their current form reads; DDLWW. Coach Robert Page is the one to blame for Wales’ approach to the game, but at the end of the day, they earned a point, so… he may well feel vindicated for asking his players to sit back, not just in their half of the pitch, but in the one third of the pitch closer to their goal. Moore scored Wales’ goal.

Turkey and Wales have met six times in the past and the Welsh have a slightly better record of 3W, 1D and 2L. Goals in total, 10-7 for Wales. More recently, they met in the 1998 World Cup qualifiers, when Turkey won 6-4(!) at home and drew 0-0 as guests.

A 2-1 victory for the Turks is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 16th of June, 2021.

Venue: Baku Olympic Stadium

Kick-off time: 18:00 (GMT+2).
