Switzerland and Turkey are trailing in Euro 2020 Group A and both teams need to go for a win in Baku to have any chance of advancing.
On the evidence seen so far in this tournament, the Rossocrociati are in better form and have to be rated a percentage pick to prevail.
Vladimir Petkovic’s side can be backed at 8/11 to come out on top and that is our first Switzerland vs Turkey prediction.
A Look At Switzerland’s Betting Odds
Switzerland were probably the better team when drawing 1-1 with Wales but then found Italy too strong in a 3-0 Rome reversal.
Substitute Steven Zuber had their only shot on target against the impressive Azzurri, who unsettled the Swiss with high-pressing tactics.
Petkovic said: “We played against a strong team, they caused us a lot of problems and we weren’t 100 per cent.
“We were insecure on the pitch, which is normally not in our character. It’s disappointing.
“But I have already talked to the team and we have to look ahead, be positive and ready for our decisive match against Turkey to have the chance to make the last 16.”
The tempo of this match should be much more suitable, allowing the likes of Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Liverpool playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri to control proceedings.
The omens are good for Switzerland as they have progressed past the group stage at the last three major finals – two World Cups and Euro 2016.
Borussia Monchengladbach forward Breel Embolo shone versus Wales and 5/1 for him to break the deadlock appeals from the Switzerland vs Turkey odds.
A Look At Turkey’s Betting Odds
Turkey were also dominated by Italy and even a vociferous support failed to inspire them to victory in a 2-0 loss to Wales.
Kaan Ayhan had a header cleared off the line while Danny Ward denied Merih Demiral from a corner but the Crescent Stars were all over the place at the back.
Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts struck for the Dragons, who wasted numerous other chances, including a penalty miss by Gareth Bale.
Veteran boss Senol Gunes said: “Qualification was a dream for us but it is difficult now.
“We just lost the ball on too many occasions and could not develop a clear attacking strategy.
“The players are responsible for their roles. I am responsible for the results.
“I tried to put the best players on the pitch and I know this team can play much better than this.
“But the rival was much more balanced and tried to control us.”
Turkey will again be cheered on by a large contingent of fanatical fans in what is almost like a home game for them and must adopt a positive approach.
However, that could leave them even more open in defence, so 23/10 for the Rossocrociati to win and both teams to score is added to our Switzerland vs Turkey betting tips, along with 15/2 for a 2-1 scoreline.
Italy 3-0 SWITZERLAND
