Turkey vs Croatia
Date: 11 November 2020, Wednesday
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park (Istanbul).
Turkey and Croatia, two teams desperate for a win, lock horns in a friendly on Wednesday.
Both teams had a dismal run in the current calendar year and especially Croatia who are almost confirmed a third placed finish in their UEFA Nations League group. They already lost 3 of the 4 games, positive in the win against Sweden, but were all over the park in two defeats to France (1-2 & 2-4) and totally hammered by Portugal (1-4).
Turkey are no better either and also considering they face lesser teams and judging by their performance in 2018 and 2019, they must be doing better. No wins so far this year, but 4 of the 5 games ended in stalemates.
Bookies are expecting a tight match and this is why Croatia despite favourites are priced at 2.20 odd while the home win can be backed at 3.20 odd.

Turkey vs Croatia Prediction
Friendly or not, this is going to a competitive game since both teams are in desperate need of a win to keep morale and confidence high ahead of the competitive round of fixtures later that week. Judging by the trend of odds, the bookies are also expecting the same.
