20:00, Jun 11 2021
Turkey vs Italy predictions for this Euro 2020 battle on Friday at Stadio Olimpico. Turkey and Italy kick off Euro 2020 on Friday. In theory, the two teams who are favourites to finish in the top two places in Group A will meet in this match. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Turkey

Fourth Euro in which the Turks have participated, their greatest progress was in 2008, when they reached the semi-finals and were eliminated by the Germans.

The Turks come into this tournament with a younger squad than they are used to. We will see if this youth and inexperience does not affect them negatively at key moments.

As a historical fact, the Turks have faced the Italians seven times in history but never managed to beat them. 

Italy

Tenth participation in a Euro for the Italians. They have one European Championship in their trophy cabinet, won in 1968. In 2016 they were eliminated in the quarter-finals against Germany.

The Italians are not initially favourites to win this year’s edition, but they should always be taken into account, as they are a country with a lot of grit, which often gives them the motivation they need to win matches.

Among the players to watch out for in this Italian team are: Verratti, Barrella, Insigne and Inmobile.

Key Stats

  • Six consecutive matches without losing for Turkey, two draws and four wins
  • Four of the last six matches of Turkey ended with over 2.5 Total match goals
  • 27 consecutive matches without losing for Italy
  • Eight consecutive matches without conceding goals for Italy

Turkey vs Italy

Although the Turks do not have a bad team, we think that the Italians come to the Euro as a real team. This is what the statistics show. 27 consecutive matches without losing and eight consecutive matches without conceding goals, that can only be achieved with a team that is fully focused and lives every match as a final.

In a Euro, teams take fewer risks, defensive concentration must be greater. Being the first game for both teams, we don’t think it will be a very open game with many goals.
