Spain are ready to continue their good start to the Euro 2016 tournament when they take on Turkey on Friday 17 June
Spain had a solid start in this tournament than it has in recent years, the Spanish team held possession throughout their game against Czech Republic but they lacked quality finishing, squandering huge scoring chances, Spain attacked from all angles with different attacking modes and methods Which later provided a goal for the Spaniards. They will be looking forward to another victory against Turkey.
On the other hand, Turkey fell 1-0 to a good Croatian side with a goal from Real Madrid’s midfielder Luka Modric, his 41st minute goal was enough to condemn the Turkish side to a defeat in their first game of the Euro 2016, but nevertheless Turkey will be looking to redeem their face against the strongest opponents in their group Spain.
Spain: Predicted line up (4-3-3)
De Gea – Juanfran, Pique, Ramos, Alba – Fabregas, Busquet, Iniesta – Silva, Morata, Nolito
Turkey: Predicted line up (4-1-4-1)
Babacan – Gonul, Topal, Balta, Erkin – Inan – Calhanoglu, O Tufan, Ozyakup, Turan – Tosun
Spain vs Turkey: Head to Head
Spain’s 7 games against Turkey have seen 4 wins in favour of the Spaniards, 2 draws and a loss which happened in 1954 During World Cup qualification, since then Spain have dominated against Turkey.
Both teams have never played in the Euro championship game before or any major Tournament except qualification matches.
Spain vs Turkey: Prediction
Spain are huge favourites in this game and we believe that this is a straight win for defending Champions. Their unique and possession based style of play will be enough to break down the Turkish defence. But the only worry is their poor finishing and hopefully they may improve here. At the same time, the Spanish defense is pretty solid and a clean sheet is very likely.
I predict a clear victory from Spain and a score line of 2-0 or 3-0
- Spain win.
- Spain – Clean sheet.
- Under 2.5 goals.
