Turkey and Italy will play in their first Euro 2020 match in Portugal, which will start at 22:00 Bulgarian time on July 11, 2021. After being absent from the World Cup in 2016, when they failed to qualify, the Azzurri led by Roberto Mancini managed to renew the team, and now they have the difficult task to show what they are one of the strongest teams in the world.
Turkey, for its part, ranks 2nd, 2 points behind world champions France, and also claims a good Euro 2020 ranking. The Turkish national team is the youngest in this European Championship with an average age under 25. Returning coach Shenol Gunes, who led Turkey to 3rd place at the World Cup in 2002, made changes to the team and bet on young players, asking her to build a new team, looking forward to the next World Cup. Although the Turks are guests in this match, the team has every chance to make a point, and why not something more, given the good form and the results so far. In the groups they had only one loss, so we can expect everything in this match.
Italy has returned and improved its performance after being eliminated in the groups of the last World Cup and now the team will have the opportunity to prove that it is no coincidence that it is one of the contenders for the title. The Azzurri have not become European champions since 1968 when they defeated Yugoslavia at home. Mancini, who took office in 2018, has made many changes and built an almost new team that is performing very well so far. Under his leadership, Italy has scored 70 goals and conceded 14, and is currently in a series of 8 victories, including the friendly match with the Czech Republic, which was won with 4:0, which speaks of the good defense of the team. The Italians have not lost at home since 2016 when they were last defeated by France.
Prediction – both teams to score – 2.55 from 22bet
