16:55 

Kick off is lees than five minutes away as both team take to the pitch

16:50 

Turkey's goal has been peppered with shots in this competition, they have faced 40 shots across their two Euro 2020 games so far, more than any other side in Group A.

16:45 

Swiss captain Granit Xhaka could be pivotal in the out come of the game today, no player has made more passes (153) had more touches (172) or made more tackles (five) for Switzerland at Euro 2020 so far

16:40 

Not only would a Swiss victory tonight give them a chance to qualify for the knockout stages, but it would also mean they avoid remaining winless in all three of their group stage games at a major tournament for the first time since Euro 2004

16:35 

Despite under performing at this years Euros, Turkey have won each of their last two international matches against Switzerland, even though they conceded the opening goal in both games.

16:30 

While Swiss coach Vladimir Petković, was realistic abut his side's chance of progressing "The most important thing is to be present. We need to improve what we can influence and, most importantly, win. With three points we have a realistic chance of advancing. We’re playing in front of 30,000 Turkish fans but we will try to turn that into a positive. It’s very important, a decisive game. There are no second or third chances."

16:25 

Before the game Turkey coach Şenol Güneş recognised his side's inexperience going into a major tournament "This is a young team. They haven't experienced a tournament like this before. I know expectations were high, but this team created those expectations with their good performances."

16:20 

And this is the Switzerland side selected by Vladimir Petković:

Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodríguez, Widmer, Freuler, Xhaka, Zuber, Shaqiri, Seferovic, Embolo

16:15 

Here is the Turkey side that is set to face Switzerland:

Çakir, Zeki Çelik, Demiral, Söyüncü, Müldür, Ayhan, Ünder, Tufan, Kahveci, Calhanoglu, Yilmaz

16:10 

Ranked 13th in the world, the Switzerland are in danger of under performing again on the international stage. After conceding a lead to draw with Wales in their opening game and then being comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Italy in Rome, the Swiss have now won only two of their 15 fixtures at Euros past and present.

16:05 

This Turkey side came into the Euros with high hopes, but after losing their first game of a completion for the fifth consecutive time on the opening night against Italy, things went from bad to worse on Wednesday, as they were beaten 2-0 by Wales, leaving their chances of progression in tatters

16:00 

Hello and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the Group A clash between Turkey and Switzerland. Both teams come into this game knowing that even a victory won’t guarantee them a spot in the knockout stages of the competition, with Wales needing to lose their game against Italy by a heavy margin to give them any chance.
