Gareth Bale wants Wales to be able to silence fans when playing against Turkey in Baku

Gareth Bale says Wales plans to silence what will become Turkey’s home cloud in the Euro 2020 clash in Baku.

As far as securing the last 16 qualifications, what is a potential winning clash for both sides is that Turkey will dominate the support within Baku’s Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.

After the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed, the stadium with a capacity of 69,870 will be nearly half full and is expected to be attended by approximately 34,000 people.

Only a few hundred Welsh supporters opposed the Welsh government’s advice and traveled 3,000 miles to the Caspian coast.

Thousands of Turkish fans are expected to make a relatively short trip to Baku, but the close relationship between their country and Azerbaijan makes Crescent Star also rely on the support of the locals. Means you can.

Captain Vale said: “Obviously, I want to play in front of 34,000 Welsh fans, but I’m not going to do that.

“You nourish the atmosphere. Of course, they’re not saying great things, but you want to silence them.

“We feel like an away team at an away stadium. You will be a little more abused.

“All of us soccer players have dealt with it in the past, it’s normal, and you’re enjoying it.

“If anything, it drives us to be a little more ruthless on the pitch. Hopefully we can silence them.”

Both sides need points because they didn’t win the opening game.

Wales drew 1: 1 with Switzerland in Baku and Turkey lost 3-0 to the group’s favorite Italy in Rome.

Interim Manager Robert Page said:

“The staff has changed, but we are against a very good team.

“We have identified where they are good, but we stop there because there are players who can hurt the team.

“We have a game plan that we want to stick with. We think it can cause problems in Turkey.

“Opposite managers looking at that team sheet can respect what we have there and threaten them.”

Regarding the status of Group A before the second round of the match, the page added:

“They will be considering our game to earn three points, and we are completely ready for that.

“But we aim to win. If you score 4 points in 2 games, you can set it up well.”
