Turkey at a Glance

The team of Turkey played an impressive campaign through their way to EURO 2020. The team finished second in a group that involved also France and Iceland. Turkey managed to beat France (2-0) at home and got a point at Stade de France (1-1). The Turkish team is full of young and talented players, especially at the back front – Caglar Soyncu, Ozan Kabak, Merih Demiral. We should mention also the names of Cengiz Under, Hakan Calhanoglu, Burak Yilmaz, Orkun Kokcu, Zeki Celik.

8 Clean Sheets in a Row

Italy is definitely one of the favourites for winning EURO 2020. Currently, the team has been in sensational form recording 8 straight wins in a row without conceding a goal. The Italian team looks strong and balanced in all positions. There are huge expectations that Squadra Azzura will bring the title home.

Our Verdict

There is no doubt that the team of Turkey has undergone a massive improvement. Turkey could be the unexpected team to continue in the knock-out phase of the tournament but we think that their start will be tough and they will lose the opening match of EURO 2020.
