Turkey vs Wales Betting PreviewTurkey were well beaten by Italy in their opening match at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Senol Gunes' men will be eager to bounce back swiftly after a such underwhelming performance as they struggling badly to keep any sort of possession in the face of the Azzurri’s relentless pressing. Turkey had been unbeaten in six previous games this year, including a 4-2 win over the Netherlands in a World Cup qualifier. So they are probably not as bas as they were in the first match.
Wales' Euro 2020 campaign began with a 1-1 draw with Switzerland on Saturday. That leaves Wales in a decent position after the first set of fixtures in Group A, with a victory against Turkey on Wednesday effectively enough to seal a place in the last 16. Scoring goals has become a real problem for Wales. They haven't scored more than once in 12 of their last 13 matches.
Best OddsTurkey are 7/5 to win on Wednesday with Betfair Sportsbook, with Wales are 7/2 with Unibet to claim victory in the match. A draw is priced at 11/5 with Tonybet.
Probable Line-UpsTurkey (4-5-1): Cakir; Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu, Meras; Under, Yazici, Yokuslu, Kahveci, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz
Turskish top scorer in qualifying Cenk Tosun is missing with a serious knee injury. Cengiz Under, Irfan Can Kahveci and Kaan Ayhan are pushing for starts. Should they start, Hakan Calahanoglu will be moved in a more central position behind the lone striker Burak Yilmaz. Caglar Soyuncu and Demiral seem likely to get the nod at centre-back once again. As a result, Ozan Kabak will be benched again.
Wales (4-2-3-1): Ward; Roberts, Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Allen, Morrell; Bale, Wilson, James; Moore
Ethan Ampadu is an option in midfield for one of Joe Allen or Joe Morrell on Wednesday. Harry Wilson is pushing for a recall in attack, and he is likely to replace a below par Aaron Ramsey. The likes of Dan James and Gareth Bale will complete the offensive midfield trio behind the central forward Kieffer Moore. Neco Williams and David Brooks will both be vying to come in but we don't expect them to feature from the off.
Turkey v Wales Predictions
Both Wales and Turkey will now know the importance of victory in this game if they are to progress to the next stage. The Turks will receive strong support in Azerbaijan, that gives them an advantage that's worth noting. They are set to improve here, and that there's every chance of them taking at least one point from the Dragons. As a result, we back the Turkish team in the "Draw No Bet" market. Both teams will be extremely cautious, so it should an "Under 2.5 goals" contest. As to the scoreline, we go for the 1-0 Correct Score.
