Wales and Switzerland kickstart their Euro 2020 campaigns on Saturday as they go head-to-head in Baku.

The sides join Italy and Turkey in a difficult Group A, with Wales facing a tough task to replicate their semi-final run from Euro 2016.

Switzerland, meanwhile, were eliminated in the last 16 five years ago, beaten by Poland on penalties, and like Wales will possibly be competing for one of the four best third-place finishes in the group stage to progress.

How can I watch it?

The game will air live on BBC One in Britain, with Welsh channel S4C providing free-to-air coverage as well.

What is the team news?

The majority of Wales’ best players should be fit here, including Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Ben Davies and Dan James. The same applies to Switzerland, with Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri on call.

Confirmed line-ups

Wales: Ward; Roberts, Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Allen, Morrell; Bale, Ramsey, James; Moore

Switzerland: Sommer, Mbabu, Elvedi, Akanji, Embolo, Freuler, Seferovic, Xhaka, Rodriguez, Schar, Shaqiri

Prediction

Both sides will be desperate to avoid defeat, while simultaneously knowing that a win would put them in a great position to secure one of the four best third-place finishes and a spot in the last 16. The final score here might just be in between those results, however. Wales 1-1 Switzerland.
