This will be the second meeting between Switzerland and Turkey at a major tournament. Their first encounter was in the group phase of Euro 2008 – the Swiss, as co-hosts, lost 2-1 to the Turks.
Turkey have won each of their last two encounters with Switzerland, with both victories seeing the Swiss open the scoring. The Turks have never won three in a row against the Helvetic nation.
The last five games between Switzerland and Turkey have produced 17 goals, an average of 3.4 per game.
Switzerland (D1 L1) are looking to avoid remaining winless in all three of their group stage games at a major tournament for the first time since Euro 2004.
Turkey have lost both of their games at Euro 2020, by an aggregate score of 0-5. In a full tournament, only Denmark in 2000 (8) have conceded more goals without reply.
Turkey have won their final group stage match at each of their last four appearances in a major tournament (World Cup and Euros), since losing 0-3 against Denmark at Euro 1996.
Switzerland’s loss against Italy on MD2 was their first defeat in all competitions in 2021. The Swiss last lost consecutive matches in October 2020 (vs Croatia and Spain).
Turkey haven’t lost three consecutive matches in all competitions since November 2010. They’ve faced 40 shots across their two Euro 2020 games so far, more than any other side in group A.
Burak Yilmaz was involved in 50 per cent of Turkey’s 18 shots against Wales last time out (6 shots, 3 chances created). However, just one of his six attempts was on target as Turkey failed to make a breakthrough.
No player has made more passes (153) had more touches (172) or made more tackles (5) for Switzerland at Euro 2020 so far than captain Granit Xhaka.
