Italy’s sizzling win at the Euro 2020 opener was a perfect start to the weekend. But that’s not all as another mouth-watering encounter between Wales and Switzerland is lined up for today. The two teams will cross swords at the Baku Olympic Stadium. Both teams are laced with some top quality players who will be keen to get their team off to a winning start.

Wales, on the other hand, forms an impressive forward line with Gareth Bale, Harry Wilson, and Daniel James up their ranks. However, their recent form is not that great.
