Forecast Turkey vs Italy in an international friendly match

Turkey will take on Italy in a friendly on Tuesday evening on 29 March. Both sides suffered setbacks last week, so the upcoming encounter might be an outlet for the players. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be found at how to register with 1xbet.

Turkey

The home side completely failed at the last UEFA EURO, suffering three defeats in all three of their group matches and leaving the tournament. In qualifying for the World Cup, everything was much better – the team finished second in their qualifying group, only giving way to the Netherlands. In the entire cycle, Shenol Güneş’s side suffered only one fiasco, a 6-1 defeat to the Orange in Amsterdam. The Red and Whites have won three of their last three games in November, leaving Norway far behind in the final table.

The first round of the play-offs, however, was the end of the story. The Red-Whites lost 3-1 to Portugal at the Dragau and were left out of the Mundial. The Turks were 2-0 up, but they had every chance of getting back into the game – but Burak Yılmaz missed a penalty in the 85th minute before the opponents added more in the closing stages. The starting line-up is sure to include a number of reserves, for whom the upcoming game will be a real chance to prove their worth (1,ru.).

Italy

The Scuadra Azzurra will miss their second World Cup in a row! Contrary to expectation, they finished second in their qualifying group, losing outright to Switzerland in Qatar. Roberto Mancini’s side have scored 16 points in 8 games. The team started the spring part of qualification well, winning 3 victories out of 3. Then, the country went to a victorious UEFA EURO, where the Italians were undefeated and beat England at Wembley in the final. Possibly too much emotional energy was left in the continental competition – in September, the team from the south of Europe were out of sorts: first, they drew twice in the World Cup qualifiers (Bulgaria and Switzerland), then left the Nations League semi-final losing to Spain (1:2).

Two further draws (at home to Switzerland and away to Northern Ireland) were the apotheosis, after which the Bilo-Syni slipped down to second place in the group. It seemed that the Italians would have no problems in the first round of the play-offs as they faced modest Northern Macedonia. Mancini’s side played the entire game in the away half, hitting 32 shots on goal but failed to unlock Dmitrijevski’s goal. In the 92nd minute, the worst thing happened – a rare counter-attack by the opposition ended in a dodgy effort from outside the box (2.5 minutes).

Head-to-head encounters

The last time the two teams faced each other at last year’s Euros, the Italians crushed the other side 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Turkey vs Italy

It is always difficult to guess at the mood of national teams for friendly matches. However, it is reasonable to assume that the encounter will be productive. There is no pressure on the teams, they can play at their own pace and enjoy the spectacle. Both sides have quality attacking potential and top-flight stars. Our prediction is goal total over 2.
