Turkey Italy Head-to-Head
Italy have an 8-0 advantage against Turkey in 11 meetings with three draws.
Italy beat Turkey in the most recent meeting between the sides in the European Championships. The Azzurri won 2-1 in the group stages of the 2000 Euros.
Turkey bounced back from a disappointing 0-0 friendly draw with Guinea and beat Moldova 2-0 in their final warm-up match.
Burak Yilmaz and Cengiz Under scored in the second half to cap a dominant display. Turkey were in complete control throughout, with 71% possession and 11 shots.
The win extended Turkey’s unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions, including a 4-2 win against the Netherlands and a 3-0 victory over Norway.
Despite impressive results, a recent 3-3 draw against Latvia and a stalemate against Guinea were disappointing for Senol Günes’ side.
Turkey Injuries & Team News
Turkey have no injuries or suspensions.
Italy completed their preparations for Euro 2020 by thrashing San Marino 7-0 and the Czech Republic 4-0.
The Azzurri were in complete control, with 17 shots and 63% possession. Their dominance paid off with two first-half goals from Ciro Immobile and Nicolo Barella. Lorenzo Insigne and Domenico Beradi sealed the win with second-half goals.
It was Italy’s eighth consecutive win without conceding in all internationals. Italy's defence has been resolute in recent matches as they recorded five straight 2-0 wins in recent Nations League and World Cup qualifiers.

Midfielder Stefano Sensi withdrew from the squad last week due to a muscle injury. Matteo Pessina was called up in his place.
Turkey will find chances hard to come by against Italy. The Azzurri should control the match and record a win in Group A. I am tipping Italy to win to nil again.
