Turkey vs Italy: Make your prediction
Betting tip prediction: Turkey 0 – Italy 2
Italy will compete at their first major tournament in five years following their failure to qualify for the World Cup in Russia.
However, Roberto Mancini’s new-look Italy appear primed to really make their mark on this summer’s European Championships.
The Italians head into the tournament on a 27-game unbeaten run, having won ten of ten in qualifying and coming off the back of topping their Nations League group.
Turkey’s form in 2021 has looked much more promising following a shocking Nations League campaign which saw them relegated from League B.
Senol Gunes’ side currently sit top of Group G in World Cup qualifying having beaten both Holland and Norway.
Despite their improved form this year, it is unlikely that they will bring to an end Italy’s remarkable unbeaten streak on Friday.
Recommended Turkey vs Italy betting tips
Italy to win and keep a clean sheet. Since the arrival of Roberto Mancini, the Italians have look formidable in defence.
The Azzurri have kept a remarkable 20 clean sheet in 32 matches under Mancini and are on a run of eight games without conceding.
Last Friday they thrashed the Czech Republic 4-0, producing yet another impressive defensive display.
Italy have combined experience, in Florenzi and Bonnuci, with youth, in Donnarumma and Bastoni.
Mancini’s back-line is likely to play a key part in any potential success at this summer’s European Championships.
