Switzerland v Turkey Match Preview & Trends

Swiss hoping for qualification as Turkey wave goodbye

For all their efforts last in the first two matches, ultimately Turkey came away with nothing and was outclassed by the Italians in the opening game before getting outplayed by Wales. The Turks ran their socks off in each fixture and made life extremely difficult for their opponents but that kind of pressing and sustained pressure cannot be sustained for 90 minutes in the heat they encountered. Senol Gunes’ men will hope to end their tournament in a more positive fashion against Switzerland this time around.

Switzerland were not at the races in Rome but will hope a return to Baku will reignite their qualification hopes having played fairly well there against Wales in their opening round 1-1 draw. A victory against Turkey would see them in a decent position of achieving a third-place qualification spot or even better finishing second should Italy defeat Wales by enough goals to cancel out the current goal difference.

Switzerland covered 193.3km in the opening two rounds and have maintained a passing accuracy of 88% and averaging 56% possession. The Swiss have made 68 passes into the attacking third with 36 of those in key areas. They have completed 13/37 crosses, which left them at 35%. In comparison, Turkey has covered 209.1km in the first two games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 82% and averaged 48% possession. The Turks made 68 passes into the attacking third with 40 of those in key areas. They completed 13/37 crosses, which left them at 35%, exactly the same as the Swiss at this stage of the competition.
