Group F of the 2024 European Championships continues on 22nd of June with a clash between Turkey and Portugal. Portugal are the favourites to progress in this group but that second spot of qualification is open with Turkey, Georgia and Czechia all believing that they can progress to the Last 16 of European Championships. Turkey will be the more favoured of the three teams to progress along with Portugal having finished top of their group during the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign. Their opening match will be fascinating versus Georgia and they will need to win that game to relieve some of the pressure of this game against Portugal. Portugal will open up their Euros versus Czechia in a game they will be expected to win. Both teams are full of quality and Portugal have what it takes to go far in the tournament but Turkey will fancy their chances to at least progress to the knockout stages with the quality they also have. The match will be important for both sides to begin their campaign with a victory helping to alleviate some of the pressure, and how have Ireland’s best betting sites priced the potential match outcomes?

Turkey vs Portugal Euro Prediction

Turkey were very impressive in the Euro 2024 Qualifying campaign. They finished top of Group D in qualifying finishing ahead of a strong Croatian side with a lot of major championship pedigree by one point. They only tasted defeat on one occasion in qualifying at the hands of Croatia, in their home stadium The Ataturk Olympic Stadium 0-2. They avenged this defeat with a win in Croatia later in the campaign, 0-1. They scored 14 goals in qualifying, conceding only 7. Turkey have had mixed fortunes in friendlies since qualifying, winning 2-3 away at tournament hosts Germany in November, but losing 6-1 to Austria in March. They have quality players at their disposal, particularly in the form of Fenerbahce winger Cengiz Under, Galtasaray’s Muhammad Akturkoglu and Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu. Under has 9 goals and 2 assists this season for Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig and Akturkoglu had 12 league goals while Calhanoglu was voted Serie A midfielder of the season after contributing 13 goals and 8 assists to Inter Milan’s Serie A title success.

Portugal are full of quality in all areas of the pitch most notably in the forward areas. Portugal manager Roberto Martinez is going to have some sleepless nights trying to decide which attacking players will make it into the starting 11 with a lot of them coming off the back of brilliant seasons with Bruno Fernandes scoring 10 goals and getting 8 assists in the premier league and also winning the F.A Cup, Rafael Leao scoring 9 goals and providing 10 assists in Serie A, Bernardo Silva scoring 6 and providing 9 assists in the premier league, Diogo Jota scoring 10 and providing 3 assists in an injury hit season and 5 time Ballon D’or winner Cristiano Ronaldo scoring 44 goals in 45 matches with Al Nassr in the Saudi league. The quality on both sides makes this a compelling match but I am tipping Portugal as they should go far into this competition.

✔️ Turkey vs Portugal- Betting Tips

There are some intriguingly priced markets associated with the clash between Turkey and Portugal, with one of the favourites for the tournament Portugal going up against potential dark horses Turkey.. But how can you identify the best value markets or successfully leverage combination betting to your advantage? Here are some tips to keep in mind!

  • Tip 1: Back Portugal to Win: Portugal are the favourites heading into this group game vs Turkey. It is a group that Portugal are expected to finish first in and they have the strength in depth to go very far in this competition. They have some of the best forwards in the world in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Jota and Rafael Leao and have the quality in midfield behind them in Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes that will make them a difficult prospect for any team in this tournament including favourites France and England. They have pedigree in this competition being victorious in 2016 and they also won the first ever Nations League in 2019 versus Netherlands. They come into the tournament in blistering form since their World Cup quarter final exit at the hands of Morocco on 10th December 2022. They have suffered only 1 defeat since then, coming in a friendly against Slovenia back in March. The best odds on Portugal to win can be seen on Sportaza who are offering odds of 1.57.
  • Tip 2: Back Portugal to win to nil : I’ve already touched on Portugal’s dominance since their elimination from the 2022 World Cup in December 2022. Since then, in competitive matches they have scored 36 goals and conceded just 2 goals, keeping 9 clean sheets in their last 10 competitive matches. Turkey have qualities to score in this one scoring 14 goals in their last 8 competitive games.These 14 goals came against opposition who are not at the same calibre as this Portugal side who are very strong defensively with centre backs Ruben Dias and Goncalio Inacio showing their quality with great season in the Premier League and Liga Portugal, both winning league titles respectively. Portugal score goals and keep clean sheets so it is a good chance they win this game to nil, keeping a clean sheet. I expect Portugal to win to nil and odds of 2.64 at Royalistplay Sports could be fruitful.
  • Tip 3: Back Cristiano Ronaldo to score: This will more than likely be the last major tournament for Cristiano Ronaldo as the striker will be 41 years of age at the 2026 Fifa World Cup, so it will be surprising if he plays that tournament. This will be Ronaldo’s last chance to win another major tournament with Portugal having won the 2016 Euros and also the 2019 Uefa Nations League. He will be determined to add to his trophy resume but also his goal tally that has seen him score 130 international goals for Portugal, the most international goals by any player ahead of Lionel Messi who has 108 goals for Argentina. In the Saudi league Ronaldo has scored 44 goals in 45 matches so will be confident heading into this one. Odds of 1.90 for Ronaldo to score anytime can be found on 20BET Sports.
