Turkey and Italy get the EURO 2020 (2021) tournament underway, with the two football giants clashing on the big stage later this week.
TURKEY VS ITALY BETTING
Roberto Mancini will be hoping that his Italian side hit the ground running and showcase their talent against Turkey this Friday. Expectations to produce on the biggest stage are typically high for the EURO 2016 quarter-finalists, who frequently find themselves well past the initial stages of international competitions.
The Azzurri come into the tournament off the back of two wins against San Marino (7-0) and the Czech Republic (4-0). Considering the incredible talent they possess, Italy fans will demand their side come away from the first fixture of the tournament with all three points – and a toe safely in the Round of 16.
Turkey head into their first EURO 2020 (2021) fixture against Italy with two wins against Azerbaijan (2-1) and Moldova (2-0), and a draw against Guinea (0-0) under their belt.
Although not an outright favourite to make it into the final and take home the EURO 2020 (2021) trophy, the Turkish national team has incredible young talent from some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including: Leicester City centre-back Çağlar Söyüncü, Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral, AC Milan attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu and LOSC Lille striker Yusuf Yazici.
Should manager Şenol Güneş wish to see his side make it past the group stage, a win against Italy could go a long way towards making that happen. With fierce Wales and Hungary national teams also forming part of Group A, Turkey fans will be putting the pressure on their side to produce in front of the world and steal vital points from the Azzurri in any way, shape, or form.
If you fancy the opener to be a game full of celebrations, we’ve got the teams to score over three goals at 29/4 (8.25), with Turkey’s Burak Yilmaz at 7/2 (4.50) to find the back of the net for his side.
