Turkey vs Italy
The thrills of European Football return on Friday when Turkey takes on Italy in Group A. Turkey’s pre-tournament form has been impressive as they are unbeaten in their last five games, winning three during that run. Turkey would be hoping to continue that form in the group phase of this continental showpiece.
Meanwhile, after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Italy will be seeking to make a big statement this time around. Mancini’s men are currently on a superb 26-game unbeaten run as they are yet to lose a game since September 2018. In fact, they have won their last five games without conceding a goal. We expect this form to put them in advantage position, as they begin the hunt for a first continental triumph since 1968.
Despite Turkey’s current form, we are backing Italy to pick all three points in this match with at least 3 goals scored.
Predictions: Over 2.5goals
