Euro Final Group Stage Matches Scheduled for Sunday AfternoonPublished June 20, 2021 by Florin P
Wales and Switzerland fight for the second place in Group A against teams that have nothing to play for but pride at this stage of the competition.
Group A is the first one to usher in the third and final stage of this phase of the Euro 2020. Italy will have to fulfill a simple formality after defeating both Switzerland and Turkey by 3-0. Wales and Switzerland have plenty to fight for, whereas Turkey is already out of the competition with two consecutive defeats.
Wales Aim for a Draw against Unstoppable Italy
The Italians have showcased their incredible defensive prowess once again by preventing opponents from scoring. At the same time, they exceeded expectations by scoring 3 goals in each game to advance to the playoffs in style. They could push for a perfect start against Wales, but are more likely to rest key players.
The Italians don’t have any footballers injured or suspended and they intend to keep it that way. This explains why bet365 Sports only gives them odds of 1/2 while pricing a Wales victory at 6/1. The latter can settle for one point as they have the goal advantage over Switzerland, against whom they split points.
Switzerland Clings on to Faint Euro 2020 Dream
Switzerland needs a comprehensive victory over Turkey to keep their chances to promote alive. Everything will be lost if Wales defeats Italy, but this is an unlikely scenario so the Swiss will keep on fighting. They are better than the Turks, so the odds of 3/4 offered by bet365 Sports are justified.
Turkey is the first team eliminated from the Euro 2020, with nothing left to fight for but pride. Victory over Switzerland would salvage their morale, but it wouldn’t make a difference in the European championship. This unlikely event benefits from odds of 37/10, only slightly higher than the draw.
Girona Hopes to Revert First Leg Loss to Rayo Vallecano
Away from the glamorous Euro 2020 matches, a game of extraordinary importance for Spanish teams is about to unfold. Girona and Rayo Vallecano play for a spot in the La Liga, with the latter having an advantage after the first leg. Girona will try to make amends after losing the opening match and rely on their strong performance at home. A narrow margin victory for the host would be enough to secure qualification, so the game is likely to feature few goals. 888 Sport offers identical odds of 17/10 on each team to prevail, but 2/1 on a draw is an equally tempting proposition.
