This edition of the Euro is very peculiar. It will be marked by being played a year after it was initially scheduled, as unfortunately, the pandemic delayed the holding of the competition in 2020.
And it is not only the schedule that draws attention in the European Championship 2020. For the first time, the competition is not held in a host country. Initially, UEFA’s idea was that 13 different cities would host the matches.
But unfortunately, some were unable to meet the health requirements, so there will be matches in 11 European cities. The Turkey x Wales 2020 match will occur in Baku at 16:00h (UTC) at the Bakı Olimpiya Stadionu.
Turkey x Wales 2020: Qualifying performances
The group stage is very similar to the qualifying round. In both situations, all teams in the group face each other, and the best two progress. This is why it is always good to look at how the teams performed during the qualifying phase.
In this case, we can see that Turkey qualified as 2nd in their group. With a campaign of 7 wins and a total of 23 points out of 10 games. This performance allowed Turkey to play in this year’s competition. All in pursuit of the dream of achieving the highest glory of the continent.
Yet, another team also dreaming of doing well is Wales. The team comes to the 2020 European Championship after scoring 14 points and finishing in 2nd place in its qualifying group. Throughout the 8 matches of the qualifying phase, it was 4 wins that gave the team the credentials to play in the final stage of the competition.
Details about Turkey
Turkey is coming from a defeat in the last match they played. The team of coach Ş. Güneş failed to stand up to Italy and ended up losing by 0-3. In the light of this, the team arrives for this duel in 4th place of Group A.
In short tournaments with international teams, the tradition and name are usually a good indicator of what the team is aiming for in the championship.
So, considering that, we see a record where the team has never even reached a final of any of the European Championships. This makes Turkey a one of the teams who should fight only to make an honorable appearance at European Championship 2020.
Although historical data is an important parameter, it is not the only factor that should be considered when assessing Turkey’s chances in this European Championship. The momentum of the team coached by Şenol Güneş is also something that should be taken into consideration.
Therefore, the 29th position in FIFA’s ranking also serves as an indicator. As the current moment is not the best, Turkey arrives as a strong shooter in this European Championship 2020. That means the players come in without too much pressure, and they might even develop their best soccer.
Turkey Qualifying Numbers
Turkey’s offensive performance in the qualifying campaign provides another essential piece of information for this match to analyze. In the 10 game campaign, the team scored 18 goals, with C. Tosun as the main standout responsible for 5 of those goals.
However, C. Tosun is not the only player on the team to take a closer look. K. Karaman was the highest performing player on the team during the qualifiers. If he can keep up the same level of play, it is an excellent sign for Turkey, as he certainly can make the difference in this match.
Wales in detail
On the other hand, Wales’s team arrives for this match after drawing the previous match. In the previous round, Robert Page team faced Switzerland, and the match ended with a draw by 1-1. So for this game, the team arrives in 3rd place in the group.
Many considerations apply to both teams. So perhaps the most determining factor for Wales’s ambition in this European Championship 2020 is the team’s record in the competition as well. After all, it is expected that the more traditional teams will reach the finals. Wales has never even reached a European Championship final. Therefore, the fans expect that at the very most a decent competition campaign.
On the other hand, when we check the team’s position in the FIFA ranking, we see that Wales arrives for this European Championship in the position 17. This demonstrates that regardless of the number of titles they have won or not, As they are in a mid-ranking position, Wales can be a good surprise in the competition. However, expecting the team to reach the decisive stages seems too optimistic.

Wales scored 10 goals in qualifying for European Championship 2020. The team’s great offensive standout was A. Ramsey, who scored 2 goals. Moreover, in the 8 matches that the team played in the qualifying rounds, they conceded 6 goals.
