The battle of Group A goes on!
It’s time to start gathering points for passing the group stage. The national teams of Wales and Switzerland will face each other in their first match of the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament. Both teams are aware that 3 points in this duel will determine their future in a good way for the rest of the group challenges. So today's match must be a great battle where both national teams will be heading for a winning outcome of this game.
The national team of Wales was gradually developing and improving through the years, and finally, they achieved a point where they can be part of a big competition like the UEFA Euro tournament. Ryan Giggs turned out to be the right choice for leading this young and ambitious squad ahead. Their captain Gareth Bale is the superstar of the team and the experienced leader of the Welsh crew. His teammates and the fans are expecting him to step up at the key moments in this tournament, and also to be the guy who'll attract many defensive players in order to open free space for the rest of the squad on the offensive end. The Dragons have young and athletic players such as Daniel James, who must be their strong side in terms of crushing the opponent's defensive line and creating goal-scoring opportunities.
Switzerland’s national team on the other hand is more experienced in terms of computing in big tournaments. They are on a winning streak since the match in November of the UEFA Nations League against Ukraine (3:0). The Red Crosses won six matches in a row, and in their last match, they beat Lichtenstein with a score of 7:0. This gives rightful confidence for Vladimir Petkovic’s crew to bring a great football performance today against Wales, and attack for the 3 points. Their great compilation of talented and experienced players, who are playing at great clubs, brings diversity in the game and tactical opportunities for their manager. So in Group A, they will have an answer for any opponent.
We are expecting big pressure for the Walesh team since Switzerland has gained more confidence in the preparation process for this tournament. But still, both teams are going to be fighting hard at this match, and do their best to avoid losing the opening match, so plenty of goals are not expected.
