Match Preview

The Italian national team will play matchday 1 of Group A of the 2020 European Cup with Turkey, at the Stadio Olimpico, Saturday (12/6) at 12:30 midnight Indian time. Gli Azzurri must be vigilant because this is the first match.

The first match of a tournament is unpredictable. The team needed adaptation to be able to heat up immediately and win on the first matchday.

Italy course, you want to get maximum points so that the road to the next round is smoother. Moreover, this is proof of Italy failing to qualify for the last edition of the World Cup.

To be able to bend Turkey, Italy has a pretty good capital. Jorginho and friends are unbeaten in 27 consecutive matches. In addition, Italy also did not concede in the last eight matches.

However, Turkey is not an easy opponent to beat. Ay-Yildizlilar brought a number of players who have a good record at big European clubs.

Team Condition

Roberto Mancini built the Italian squad by mixing young and senior players. For example, he still includes Giorgio Chiellini andLeonardo Bonucci. Meanwhile, for a new face, Italy has Giacomo Raspadori who played brilliantly at Sassuolo.

Unfortunately, in the first match, Italy was doubtful to play Marco Verratti. The role of the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is likely to be replaced by Manuel Locatelli.

Meanwhile, in attack, Mancini is likely to play a trio of Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile, and Domenico Berardi. The three of them looked impressive in the preparation period.

On the other side, Turkey is in a state of combat readiness. There is no player who cannot appear.

Senol Gunes is predicted to choose a duet of Merih Demiral and Caglar Soyuncu at the heart of the defense. Meanwhile, Ozan Kabak will start from the bench.

To build an attack, Turkey is expected to rely on Hakan Calhanoglu. Meanwhile, the experienced striker, Burak Yilmaz, will be the goal machine.
