Turkey vs Wales – Euro 2020 Betting Tips

Turkey was expected to be the dark horses this year but came short against a rampant Italy on the opening night, while Wales earned a well-fought draw against Switzerland in their first game, this round two-game could well give us a fair idea of how the table will end. Turkey are hosting Wales at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan on the 16th of June 2021 at 21:30 IST.

Turkey Form and Team News

Italy continued to dominate the opposition like they have been doing after their WC’18 snub, Turkey were coming into the tournament hoping to put up a show but went unnoticed after the first few minutes of the game and consequently lost the game by three goals to nil. Turkey came into the Euro 2020 with a  second-place finish in the Qualification round getting 23 points from the ten games played in the competition. They were in group H along with France and Iceland being the other top teams. France qualified as the group toppers while Iceland failed to make the cut. Turkey during the process won as many as seven games losing just a solitary game against ousted Iceland. They drew against France in one of the games while also upsetting the World Champions with a thumping win playing at home.

Senol Gunes after that loss has still got to be positive about the rest of the matches and hope to win both to have any chances of qualifying for the knockouts. Yokuslu in the defensive midfielder position shone brightly in that game sending in accurate passes and making successful interceptions and tackles in the process. Captain striker Yilmaz was average on the night and would need to pull up for the team to have any chance in the rest of the games. 

Wales Form and Team News

Wales would have had also come into this game with almost a similar outcome as that of Turkey but found their groove in the last few minutes to score an equaliser in the last game against Switzerland in Baku on Saturday. They are coming into this year’s EURO with a second-place finish in the qualification rounds. They were part of Group E with the likes of Croatia being the only real threat in the group. Wales after the eight games they played managed to win just four games, and in the process scoring 14 points, just one point of the ousted third-placed Slovakia who got 13 points. Wales did manage to concede the least number of goals while also scoring a comparatively lesser number of goals as well. They are going into the EURO 2020 with an inconsistent recent record, they’ve lost two and won two in the last five games while drawing the last game. Wales can be a threatening outfit given they produce the type of football the Wales players plays in club football.

Coach Robert Page will need to regroup the squad quickly which should reflect on the team’s performance to have any chance in the tricky Group A. He would be happy given for the never-say-die attitude displayed by his troops on Saturday. Moore despite the injury he sustained to his head was able to carry on and eventually destined to score the equaliser with the same injured head. Captain Bale was ordinary while Daniel James provided ample evidence of his utility in the wings. Juventus stalwart Ramsey was invisible for the most part of the game and started to hit his ground running in the last part of the game.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 Turkey can be expected to make a comeback from the start they got at Paris in the competition opener against Italy. Wales on the other hand were clueless in the first half of their last game and making a good comeback in the second to get a stalemate. Here, Turkey look like favourites given their form in the recent matches barring the Italy game while Wales are still winless in the recent matches.

Tip 1: Draw No Bet Turkey

Turkey have been in top form until the last game, before coming into the competition they were on a six-match unbeaten streak. In the last seven matches, they were able to win or draw in six games to strengthen the above Draw No Bet concept in the next game against Wales. At home, four of their last five matches have also seen them getting at least a draw. Wales on the other hand in the last three matches have not managed to win any of the three, they have had to be content with a draw in the last two while losing the other two matches. Four of the last five away matches of Wales have also produced similar results which favour the above condition. So it’s quite likely that Turkey might return with at least a draw in the next game. The odds for Draw no Bet Turkey according to the Casumo Sportsbooks is 1.66.

Tip 2: Both teams not to score

In all three of the last three games, Turkey were involved across competitions like the World Cup Qualifiers, Nations League and the Intl. Friendlies have had both teams not to score. Playing at home, Turkey have managed to keep a 100% record of both teams not to score scenarios. They have had all of their last three matches where the above conditions were met. Four of the last five matches that Wales were involved in have had the above condition satisfied. Four of their last five away games have also had both teams not to score scenarios satisfied. Thus its is least likely that both teams will score in the Euro second-round match Wednesday. The odds for both teams not to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.67. 


Turkey are favourites to win this tie even though both teams playing here are almost in the same frame of mind, But Turkey wouldn’t mind a Wales instead of an Italy while Wales after having failed to win their respective tie against the Swiss would be hoping to turn it around here. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Draw No bet Turkey @1.66
  2. Both teams not to score @ 1.67
