Switzerland head into their match with Turkey on Sunday. This is their third and final match in their group stage at the Euro 2020 and scene of the action is Baku Olimpiya Stadionu in Azerbaijan. Switzerland head to the Euro 2020 as 13th in the FIFA world ranking. Meanwhile, there is a pretty big gap to their opponent as Turkey go into the competition ranked number 29.
A group win is not within reach any longer for Switzerland who are looking for a win to have a chance of staying in the tournament. Booking a place at the Euros perhaps provided a little more excitement than Switzerland dreamed of, but they proved to have enough quality for a 1st place in the group.
Turkey arrived with lots of optimism, but must now rely on Lady Luck if they are to see the next round at this tournament. They won enough matches in qualifying to top some groups, however Turkey had to settle for 2nd place. So far the Euro 2020 have provided nothing but disappointment.
