Turkey vs Wales: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Turkey and Wales go head-to-head in Baku for a key clash in Euro 2020 Group A on Wednesday at 5pm (UK time)..
Turkey vs Wales: Predictions
Wales are equally in need of three points here after only managing a draw against Switzerland. Rob Page’s men failed to show much attacking fluidity and were outclassed across the 90 minutes, but were able to salvage a point thanks to Kieffer Moore’s second-half header. With Italy to come in their third match, this clash with Turkey represents their best chance for a win. But with thousands of Turkish fans expected to head to Baku, Wales could face a hostile atmosphere.After being considered tournament dark horses by many, Turkey made the worst possible start to Euro 2020, falling 3-0 to Italy in Rome. But with the Group A big guns now out of the way, Şenol Güneş’ side will be fully focused on taking six points from their next two games to secure passage into the knockout rounds.

Caglar Soyuncu was shown the first yellow card of Euro 2020 and was one of two Turkish players to be booked against Italy. Kieffer Moore was Wales’ only booked player last time out.
