Team News

Turkey

Turkey's manager, Vincenzo Montella, made a bold decision by starting Real Madrid teenager Arda Guler in their previous match against Georgia.

Guler rewarded this trust with a stunning winning goal and is expected to keep his place in the starting lineup.

Portugal

Portugal's coach, Roberto Martinez, utilized a 3-4-3 formation in their opening match against the Czech Republic.

However, this setup did not work as planned. Changes are anticipated, with Goncalo Inacio being a more natural fit for the central defence role.

Nuno Mendes or Diogo Dalot may drop out of the starting eleven. Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to continue leading the attack despite a lacklustre performance last time out.

Head-to-Head History

Portugal has a strong record against Turkey in European competitions. They defeated Turkey in the group stages at Euro 96 and Euro 2008, and also knocked them out in the Euro 2000 quarter-finals, all without conceding a goal.

Historically, Portugal has won seven out of nine encounters, with Turkey winning two.

Match Prediction

Given Turkey's open defensive style, Portugal is expected to create numerous scoring opportunities. We predict an entertaining match with Portugal emerging victorious.

Our prediction: Portugal to win, 3-1
