Euro 2008: Switzerland v Turkey odds and match preview

Euro 2008: Switzerland v Turkey odds and match preview The second Euro 2008 match on Wednesday is the second game in Group A - Switzerland v Turkey. Both teams began their European football with a loss and one of them will have the chance to get on its feet and keep the chance for quarterfinals alive. The great thing about underdog matches like this one - it's the punters dream come true, thanks to the high odds on either team. When we visited the U.K.-licensed online bookmaker Bet 365 we were quite surprised to learn that the Swiss are the favorite team to win the match on Wednesday night. At the British bookie Switzerland was sitting on odds 2.20, while Turkey was underdog at 3.25 with 3.40 for a draw.

 Switzerland will come out on the field without captain Alex Frei, who suffered a knee ligament injury. Rumour has it Frei will be replaced by midfielder Hakan Yakin, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Marco Streller also suffered a minor injury, but according to the latest reports he would be fit for the second game in Group A. But the situation in the Turkish squad isn't any better - captain Emre Belozoglu (photo) is out for the game against the Swiss, after tearing a hamstring muscle and will likely miss the final Group A game against the Czech, as well. Turkey's Gokhan Zan and Servet Cetin will likely miss the game, after both centre-backs suffered knee injuries. The Euro 2008 match Switzerland v Turkey will kick-off at 20:45 local time from St Jakob-Park, Basel. Live betting is available at Bet 365 online.
