Turkey vs Italy: Preview
Euro 2020 gets underway on Friday night when Turkey take on Italy at the Stadio Olimpico in Group A.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy, are in dazzling form going into the European championships having won their last eight in all competitions.
The four-time world champions, always known for stout defensive play, have been transformed under the former Manchester City manager to a more attack-minded outfit. They have netted a staggering 70 goals under Mancini and conceded just 14 times.
Having won all 10 of their Euro qualifying group matches, Italy have have been victorious in all three of their World Cup qualifiers so far, and have reached the semi-finals of the Nations League, where they will face Spain in October.
One of the clear favourites to win the tournament, the last the time the Azzuri were crowned European champions was back in June 1968 when they defeated the former Yugoslavia 2-0 in a replay on home soil.
Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli could be drafted in replacing midfielder Marco Verratti in the starting XI, with the Paris Saint-Germain star nursing a knee injury. Lazio striker Ciro Immobile is likely to be given the nod up front, with Torino’s Andrea Belotti struggling to find the back of the net of late.
A word on Turkey
Turkey, managed by Senol Gunes, go into the clash having lost just three from 23 matches since he returned to manage the national team two years ago.
Boasting an array of young defensive talents which includes the likes of Juventus’ Merih Demiral, Çaglar Soyuncu of Leicester City and Ozan Kabak, who spent last campaign on-loan at Liverpool from Schalke, the Crescent-Stars have conceded just three goals, keeping eight clean sheets during the European qualification stages.
One of the competitions dark horses, Turkey have taken four points out of a possible six against France in the European qualifiers, finishing 2nd in Group H with 24 points. They most recently defeated the highly-rated Netherlands 4-2 in a World Cup qualifier back in March.
Demiral is expected to partner Soyuncu in defence, and AC Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu will pull the strings in midfield. Roma’s Cengiz Under, who spent last season on-loan at Leicester City, will provide the width.
Turkey’s best ever run at the championships was in 2008, when they made it to the semi-finals only to be beaten 3-2 by Germany, with Philipp Lahm netting the winner on 90 minutes.
Turkey and Italy last faced each other in November 2006, in a 1-1 draw.
Prediction: Turkey 1 – 2 Italy
A close encounter between both sides, each team are going into the tournament in great form, but Italy have the upper hand having won all 10 of their qualifiers. Mancini’s men will have to get past a stubborn Turkey backline, however.
