Get our football experts' best bets at Euro 2020 on Wednesday including Wales' crucial clash with Turkey at 5pm and two other ties...

"We can back Italy minus a goal on the Asian Handicap at 6/5, and Berardi as an anytime goalscorer at 4.03/1, and I think that they are both options that we should take."

Finland v Russia: Resilient Finns can hold hosts in St Petersburg

Finland v Russia
Wednesday, 14:00
Live on BBC1

Finland are 1.4740/85 to qualify from Group B after winning their opening match against Denmark albeit in dreadful circumstances following the hospitalisation of Christian Eriksen. Now the Finns travel to St Petersburg to play Russia who will want a win after their defeat to Belgium.

Dave Tindall says: "'Yes' is a clear underdog at 2.3411/8 in the Both Teams to Score market and, on first glance, that's no surprise. Finland hardly created anything against Denmark and Russia fired blanks against Belgium.

"But Finland have now scored in their last 10 matches across qualifying and the finals itself so they do manage to find a way even when chances are sparse.

"Russia have to go for it a bit in this one and that could leave them exposed on the counter-attack. I won't go over the top about BTTS but it's worth pointing out that 'No' at 1.715/7 is far from a good thing.

"That said, if we do arrive at a drawn game, then 0-0 and 1-1 must be the most likely candidates.

"As with BTTS, that's reflected in the 2.5 quotes which are lopsided - Overs at 2.427/5 and Unders 1.674/6.

"Russia's errors against Belgium would give encouragement for Overs backers, as would Finland's March friendly against Switzerland which ended 3-2 to the Swiss."

Dave's bet: 1pt Draw in Finland v Russia at 3.8514/5

Turkey v Wales: Tournament kicks off here for the Turks

Turkey v Wales
Wednesday, 17:00
Live on BBC One

Wales are 2.226/5 outsiders to qualify from Group A after their draw against Switzerland. Now Robert Page's men face Turkey a team that was outclassed by Italy but are still 2.0811/10 to reach the knockout stages.

Dave Farrar says: "There's so much to like about Wales in terms of their endeavour and battling qualities, and they dug out that result against the Swiss without either Aaron Ramsey or Gareth Bale having any significant impact on the game, so there is room for improvement, but I just feel that the Turks have that little bit of extra quality that may just be the undoing of Rob Page and his side.

"Senol Gunes' team are trading at 2.447/5 for the win, in what is something approaching a home game against a team that started the tournament as favourites to finish bottom of the Group. All that Turkey have done wrong is fail at the Olimpico against Italy, and that has most certainly not turned them into a bad side.

"Plenty of the Turkish newspapers have made the point that Turkey's Euro 2008 campaign began with a defeat by Portugal, and that year they came close to reaching the final. I think that they are set to improve here, and that there's every chance of them winning their final two group games to qualify with relative ease."

Dave's bet: Back Turkey to beat Wales @ 2.447/5

Mark Hughes: Red-hot atmosphere will help Wales to a win

Mark Hughes is part of the Betfair Managers' Panel for Euro 2020, alongside Glenn Hoddle and Gordon Strachan, so read the former-Wales manager's views on Turkey v Wales.

Mark says: "Kieffer Moore is in a good place, he's got a bit of form coming into the tournament. His movement's good and he's demanding the ball, so that shows he's confident. He'll go into the Turkey game thinking he's going to have an impact.

"He's just got to do the fundamentals: protect the ball, retain possession high up the pitch so we can get out, because as we saw against Switzerland we were under pressure just because we didn't have an out ball. That was one of the key things we need to improve, our first ball when we win it back. Time and time again we defended very well but then that first pass after transition wasn't good enough or accurate enough. If we improve that element of our play, that's going to help Moore.

"Given how his career has gone it may be that people haven't considered him, but if he has a good Euros clubs are going to take notice. There's always players that have an impact at a tournament and people start talking about them, because they burst on the scene and burn brightly."

Wednesday Football Tips: Under shots can boost Turkey v Wales Bet Builder

Wales' match in Baku is also the focus of Andy Schooler's day six wager with Bet Builder.

Andy says: "A tight, hard-fought game therefore looks in store and immediately under 2.5 goals appeals.

"This has occurred in 23 of Wales' last 33 games, while 13 of Turkey's 23 competitive matches since the World Cup have seen two or fewer goals.

"Sticking with the stats, 20+ booking points for Wales also looks worth adding.

"Finally, Cengiz Under looks set for a start after adding greater purpose to Turkey's attacking play when he came on as a half-time substitute against Italy.

"The Leicester man loves to take a shot with 10 of his 11 competitive starts for club and country this season seeing him hit three or more."

Andy's Bet Builder: Back Cengiz Under 3+ shots, under 2.5 goals & Wales 20+ booking points @ close to 6.86/1

Euro 2020 Daily Report: Time for Wales skipper Bale to deliver

Finally on Turkey v Wales Charlie Mullan uses his daily Euro 2020 report to discuss the key markets on the match and the Welsh team's progress.

Charlie says: "Robert Page needs to figure out a way of getting Gareth Bale more involved. The Welsh captain managed just one attempt against the Swiss and nine of his 26 passes went astray. Wales have struggled for goals in the last three years and when that's the case, big time players need to step up. Bale was ranked 167th in UEFA's FedEx Performance Zone on March 24, but he's now 649th.

"Wales are 5.59/2 to make the quarter-finals for the second successive Euros, but if Bale under performs again, layers will be cashing in at 7.06/1. If Bale remembers how good a player he can be, Wales could have their supporters celebrating multiple goals for the first time beating Finland in the Nations League last November."

Italy v Switzerland: Azzurri set for another comfortable win

Italy v Switzerland
Wednesday, 20:00
Live on ITV

Italy are 8.415/2 to win Euro 2020 after they gave arguably the best display by an team so far in their 3-0 over Turkey. Now they'll try to confirm their qualification for the round of 16 when they face Switzerland on Wednesday.

Dave Farrar says: "I can see Italy once again controlling the midfield, and then they have enough quality in the final third, for all of their lack of a dominant goalscorer, to hurt the Swiss. Mimmo Berardi was exceptional against Turkey, and Lorenzo Insigne had one of his more impactful games in an Italy shirt.

"We can back Italy minus a goal on the Asian Handicap at 6/5, and Berardi as an anytime goalscorer at 4.03/1, and I think that they are both options that we should take. I think that, going forward, against better quality attacking sides, the Italians will become a "Yes" in Both Teams to Score option, but another clean sheet here would be no big surprise.

"Italy know a win here will guarantee their qualification for the Round of 16, so will barely make any changes to the starting XI that thrashed Turkey 3-0. Alessandro Florenzi should miss out, replaced by Giovanni Di Lorenzo, who impressed in the second half against the Turks."

Dave's bet: Back Italy -1 on Asian Handicap v Switzerland @ 2.35/4
