The Turks are relegated from Division B of the Nations League and find themselves in Division C. Here, the Turkish team can easily feel like a king, because in addition to the islands, the quartet includes such teams as – Luxembourg, Lithuania. But Turks are recent participants of the European Championships, and they don’t belong to those where they are now… It is quite possible that the Turks will now have a global review of their reserves. Why would they want to take their main squad to a match against the isles, or the Lithuanians? It is a friendly tournament on the whole, and there is no need to worry about the result. Actually, we don’t need to think that the Turks will be beating them all 4-0, 5-0. No, the Turkish team will rather test their reserves in these matches, and they in turn will beat their not the most difficult opponents.
The Faroe Islands have improved their results in the last few years. Now they are not the easiest of statists, although they still lose a lot, but with a much more modest score. Even against the mighty Danes on their own turf, the islands did not collapse and lost decently 1:3 at the end of last year. This year, the Faroe Islands have only played two matches so far, both friendlies, and both against the opponents of frankly weak level, with Gibraltar 0-0 and Liechtenstein 1-0. As for the matches against stronger opponents, we played such games in the end of last year, though we lost, but did it more than decently. As I have already said, we yielded 1:3 to the Danes, 2:3 to the Israelis, 0:1 to the Scots. And those were motivated opponents, while you cannot say the same about the Turks now. In fact, I’m not in a hurry to bet on a big defeat for the visitors, as the bookmakers suggest.
If we talk about the outcome of this match, of course the probability of victory here is very high, and the Turks win here. But the odds on an outright home win are tiny, and starting with a minus handicap for the Turks is a risky proposition. The islands are not as easy as they look and the motivation of the Turks in this match is not very high. Actually, I`m inclined to take a handicap (+3) on the Faroe Islands. A 4-0, 5-0 win for the Turks isn’t very much to be expected. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at promo code for 1xbet.
