Matchday 2 of Group A Euro 2020 starts today at 12:00 PM (ET) with the game between Turkey and Wales at Baku Olympic Stadium. After a draw with Switzerland, Wales, with Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, have the opportunity to get in a comfortable position to reach the next round. Here, find out what you need to know about this soccer match: the preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds and how to watch in the US.
In Matchday 1, Wales was kept in the game against Switzerland thanks to the saves from Danny Ward, which then allowed Kieffer Moore to score the equaliser 16 minutes into the end of the match. Now, Wales wants to add three points to secure a spot in the last sixteen.
But, of course, Robert Page’s side won’t have it easy in Baku. The stadium will be filled with Turkey supporters who will try to help their team get the victory. Turkey couldn’t do anything against Italy, who crushed them 3-0 in the opening game. But now, they are in need of points to keep with hopes in the tournament.

Turkey vs Wales: Storylines
In the Euro qualifiers, Turkey and Wales have faced each other two times, with one victory per side. The last time they met was 24 years ago, when Turkey won 6-4. As a curiosity, Robert Page was on the field that game.
It certainly won’t be an easy match for Wales. They haven't beaten Turkey since 1981, when Gunes was in the goal for Turkey and Carl Harries scored the only goal of the match.
