Sunday's Euro 2020 predictions including Italy vs. Wales

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Sunday's Euro 2020 fixtures - Italy vs. Wales and Switzerland vs. Turkey.


Switzerland vs. Turkey (Sunday, 5.00pm)

With both having failed to win so far, Switzerland meet Group A's bottom side Turkey in their final Euro 2020 group game on Sunday.

To secure a ticket to the knockout stages, three points are now essential in Baku, as neither nation could handle red-hot Italy or overcome Wales - leaving them in a perilous position after the first two matches.

We say: Switzerland 2-2 Turkey


Though neither nation was expected to reach the Championships' sharp end, it has been a humbling experience for both to date.

Now freed by the knowledge that a win - potentially by several goals - is a must, they can both allow their flair players, such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Hakan Calhanoglu, the opportunity to get forward at will.

As a result, an open, frenetic encounter could be in store - ending in a draw which would send them both tumbling out of the tournament.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Italy vs. Wales (Sunday, 5.00pm)

Wales will be looking to make certain of their place in the knockout stages of Euro 2020 with a point against Europe's form side Italy at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

The Dragons have picked up four points from their opening two Group A games, while Italy have a perfect six from six and are already through to the next round.

We say: Italy 2-0 Wales


None of the previous nine meetings between these sides have ever ended in a draw, with Italy winning seven to Wales' two victories.

Not only have the Azzurri won 10 games in a row, they have kept a clean sheet in each of those matches, and it is difficult to see the visitors ending either of those runs.

Both teams will make a fair few changes, but we are predicting a similar outcome for Italy, with all three points and a clean sheet to sail through in top spot.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
