Match facts

Turkey

  • Turkey are known to be slow starters in European Championships, losing all four of their opening games of the tournament – including a 2-1 defeat against Italy to kick off Euro 2000.
  • It has been over 30 years since the opening game in either a World Cup or Euro went scoreless, and despite the matchup, we shouldn't expect that to change on Friday.
  • Burak Yilmaz had an excellent season with Lille, firing them to the Ligue 1 title, beating Paris Saint-Germain. The Turkish striker was Lille’s top scorer with 16 goals in Ligue 1, a tally bettered only by three players across the division, and he ended the campaign with seven goals in his past seven matches.

Italy

  • In 11 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Italy hold the clear advantage. They have won eight games and drawn three.
  • Italy are unbeaten at the Stadio Olimpico in major tournament football (World Cup and European Championships), winning six and drawing two.
  • Ciro Immobile will be the go-to player in terms of the immense goal-scoring ability that he possesses. This can be in his numbers this season for Lazio in all competitions, finishing with 25 goals in 40 appearances.

Predictions

With both squads in such good form leading up to the main tournament, it would a difficult task to predict a winner among the two. Turkey will bank on their defence and hope Yilmaz to do some magic in front of the goal, while Italy will look to attack from the get-go and finish off the game as soon as possible.
