Turkey vs Italy Match Preview and Team News
Turkey had a disappointing exit in 2016 after getting dumped out at the group stages and will be hoping for a better run this time. They warmed up for this tournament with friendly matches against Azerbaijan, Guinea, and Moldova, and they won two, only drawing with Guinea. The results in the three games extended their unbeaten run to six games as they head to the Italy clash. They have kept three clean sheets in their last six matches and should offer Italy some tough challenge, though the opponents they’ve faced lately can’t match what the Italians will offer. Apart from their 4-2 win over the Netherlands in the World Cup qualifiers in March, Turkey hasn’t faced an opponent of Italy’s caliber in the last six matches. Kenan Karaman enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and his most significant strength is speed. Burak Yilmaz is experienced, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he means a lot to the national team.
Italy is returning to a major competition after missing the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Theirs has been a somewhat silent rebuilding, and Roberto Mancini has done a tremendous job so far. Italy remains outside favorites to win the Euro 2020 title, and their form going to this game will leave really little doubt. They played two warm-up games and did superbly well, scoring 11 goals and conceding none. The most crucial was their 4-0 win over Euro 2020 bound the Czech Republic, a statement of intent and a reminder that they are back. Italy has won all in their last eight matches with clean sheets, and they have nine of those in 10. They went through the qualifiers unbeaten, collecting 30 points in the ten games played, scoring 37 goals, and conceding four. Jorginho is an excellent defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from him. He plays excellently for Chelsea and performs well on penalties. Domenico Berardi creates a lot of problems for the opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles.
