Wednesday's Euro 2020 predictions including Italy vs. Switzerland

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Wednesday's Euro 2020 fixtures, including Italy vs. Switzerland.


Finland vs. Russia (Wednesday, 2.00pm)

Finland will aim to carry the momentum forward from their bittersweet win over Denmark when they travel to the Krestovsky Stadium to take on Russia on matchday two of Euro 2020 Group B.

Markku Kanerva's side secured a 1-0 win over their Scandinavian neighbours on a day where football came second, while Russia's first game of the tournament ended in a comprehensive 3-0 loss to Belgium.

We say: Finland 1-2 Russia


Having to play another gruelling 90 minutes against stiff opposition is a monumentally difficult ask for Finland's players - all of whom could never have imagined being forced to witness what they did on a football pitch against Denmark.

Changes may be afoot for Kanerva's side depending on what sort of headspace his team are in, and while Russia will be forced into some alterations themselves, we can see their superior quality shining through in a hard-fought win.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Turkey vs. Wales (Wednesday, 5.00pm)

Wales and Turkey meet at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan in a huge Euro 2020 contest on matchday two in Group A.

The Dragons earned a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in their opening match, while Turkey were well beaten 3-0 by co-hosts Italy.

We say: Turkey 1-1 Wales


Group A was always likely to be dominated by draws with so many similarly-ranked nations - heavyweights Italy aside - facing off.

Both teams will be targeting three points from this match, but we can see the points being shared in Baku on Wednesday - a result that will keep the group wide open.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Italy vs. Switzerland (Wednesday, 8.00pm)

Having impressed the watching continent in their opening win, Italy now take on local rivals Switzerland on Wednesday, at Rome's historic Stadio Olimpico.

While the Azzurri effectively need only a point to progress, their less illustrious neighbours are seeking their first win of Euro 2020, following a frustrating draw with Group A counterparts Wales.

We say: Italy 1-0 Switzerland


As Switzerland are expected to pursue only a point, the impetus will be on the hosts to create chances and move the ball as fluently as they managed in the tournament-opening game.

Italy are well versed at probing patiently, though, and not only have Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne to unlock the most tightly-bolted back door, but can also turn to the likes of exciting winger Federico Chiesa if required to make the difference.

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)
