Stadio Olimpico Stadio Olimpico, Rome, Italy
Under 2.25 Goals (-125)
The 2020 EURO begins on Friday when Turkey and Italy will start the tournament in a crucial match for Group A. The tournament will last for a month, with three matches per day in the group stage. Turkey and Italy will have to make the best of the premiere, so let’s see how this will go.
Italy are actually playing this match on home soil, with the match taking place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy. Italy were excellent in their most recent competitive matches, winning all 3 in the World Cup Qualifiers, without even conceding a single goal. They were equally good in the EURO Qualifiers, where they won each of their 10 matches and easily finished at the top of their group (scored 37 goals and conceded just 4 in the process). They also went undefeated in the Nations League (in a group with Poland, the Netherlands and Bosnia & Herzegovina), with 3 wins and 3 draws.
Turkey went through the stone age when they decided to renew their roster, but their tactic worked out in the end. And Turkey bring a very solid team in this tournament. They were excellent in their recent 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with 2 wins (Norway, Netherlands) and a draw (Latvia). Turkey were also really good in the EURO Qualifiers, grabbing the 2nd spot in their group with a 7-1-2 record, scoring 18 goals and conceding just 3 in the process. They have a great coach in Senol Gunes, and some really solid players in Lille’s Yilmaz, Yazici and Celik, along with Milan’s Calhanoglu and Leicester City’s Soyuncu.
Free Soccer Pick:
The two teams were quite impressive in the Qualifiers, especially in the defense, where they had the best and the 2nd best defenses with 3 and 4 goals conceded respectively. This is not an easy match for Italy, no matter what the odds say. The two teams should be rather careful in the opener, so the Under 2.25 Goals is a solid option here.
