Turkey vs Italy Prediction & Betting Tips

Euro 2020 Betting Tips: Turkey play Italy at Stadio Olimpico on Friday 11 June, Kick-off: 22:00. Read on for our free match preview and prediction for this football fixture.

The waiting is nearly over and on Friday 11 June 2021, the delayed 2020 European Championship will take place across several countries, with the continent’s leading nations battling it out for an honour which is second only to the World Cup in terms of prestige.

The first two teams in the spotlight are Turkey and Italy, with the latter among the Euro 2020 betting favourites and Roberto Mancini’s side will have home advantage at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome as they look to make a winning start.

Turkey vs Italy Preview

Italy have previously earned a reputation for playing a pragmatic brand of football, with the team having even been labelled “Catenaccio” for their art-like defending, although Mancini has set about creating an attack-minded Italy team who scored an incredible thirty-seven goals in their ten Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Our prediction is that Italy might run into brick walls for the large part of their match against Turkey and the group stage opening matches are not games that any teams want to lose, with the home side having kept an excellent seven consecutive clean sheets at the time of writing.

Expert Turkey vs Italy Betting Tips

Let’s face facts, Turkey would gladly walk off the pitch at the final whistle with a point in the bag against the Group A favourites, with Şenol Güneş' side looking to keep things tight and it’s encouraging to see that they only conceded three goals in ten qualifying matches.

Indeed, there were eight matches out of ten where the visitors kept a clean sheet and we anticipate Çağlar Söyüncü will be part of a defence that can keep chances to a premium as far as the opposition is concerned.

Protection will be afforded in midfield by the likes of Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Ozan Tufan, with this game potentially decided by a single goal and you could look at the 1-0 victory for Italy if you wanted an alternative betting angle.
