Czech Republic VS Turkey Prediction 21.06.2016

In Group D Euro Cup by on June 13, 2016


On the 21st of June the Czech team will meet the Turkish national team on the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens, France. This is their last match of the group stage and depending on this outcome, hopefully, one of them will advance to the knockout stage of the final tournament. They’ve met on several occasions so far. These encounters never finished with an even score, there always was a winner and a loser. Due to the importance of the outcome of this game we do not expect to see a draw, instead one of these will dominate the score sheet.

Czech Republic

No one can deny the quality this football team has. However, considering them as a team of high quality doesn’t help them much. Despite their capabilities and past performance the Czech squad is known for showing inconsistent performance when it’s most needed. These two teams encountered in the qualifying round of the Euro Cup 2016. In the first game which was played in Turkey, the Czech were the better team with a score of 1:2 and in the Czech Republic the Turkish squad was the winning one with a landslide victory of 0:2.

The Czech must go the distance and try to win every point they can. Group D of the Euro Cup is probably the one in which we cannot predict clearly what two teams will advance to the knockout stage. Each and every one of them has the means, the will and the players, to move on to the finals.

Probable line-up:


A decade ago, the Turkish national football team made history when they managed to play in the semi-finals of the World Cup that took place in South Korea and Japan. However, it seems like the Golden Era of the Turkish football has come to an end. Almost all of the players that wore the Turkish national football team shirt are retired. Regardless, new players such as Oguzhan Ozyakup, Nuri Sahin, Arda Turan and one of the youngest players on the Euro Cup 2016 Emre Mor are taking the responsibility to bring Turkey at the top of the ranking lists. This particular squad punishes mistakes without any remorse. If they get the space they need to play their game as they want, the Czech will end up empty handed.

Their head coach is Fatih Terim. In Turkey he’s called the Imperator, ergo this time around the media calls the Turkish squad the Imperator’s Army. We have no doubts that Terim will go on the offense, showing no respect for the capabilities and the reputation of the Czech squad.

Czech Republic VS Turkey – Predictions and Odds

We are aware of the high risk in terms of betting on this particular match, but the odds are so attractive we couldn’t leave it out. If you would’ve asked us what team will win the 3 points in this game we would’ve vouched for the Czech, but as we get nearer to the start of the match the Turkish national team looks better and better.

With no doubts in our prediction, Turkey will be the better of the two. However, it will be a very difficult game to watch if you bet on Turkey. Bookmakers also think that Turkey has better chances to win the much wanted 3 points. If you bet on Turkey you can expect odds of 2.40 or 7/5.
