Looking at Turkey vs Russia Prediction, Turkey play host to Russia at the Medical Park Stadium.
Turkey and Russia themselves drew only three months ago, so they should have known each other's game quite well.
They are in the same group as the Swedish national team, and therefore, this group should be a group that is quite competitive, given the fact that this group is filled by two quarters of this year's World Cup Finalists.
The World Cup yesterday went much better than expected by Russia, both on and off the field. Their squad was largely booed before the tournament began, but in the end they performed well, defeating the Spanish national team and breaking through the top four. The coach, Stanislav Cherchesov has signed a new two-year contract and that will make him have to guide Russia to the Euro 2020 event.
As for Turkey, they have not played at the World Cup since 2002, but they have a much better record in qualifying for Euro. They have played in 4 of the last 6 tournaments, with their best efforts so far reaching the semi-finals, along with Russia, in the past decade.
It's difficult to choose which team will be the winner in this fight later, but clearly, this match should be a pretty good game and can create a number of goals. Turkey has some good attacking players. Serie A midfielders Cengiz Ünder and Hakan Çalhanoğlu are in this squad. They also still have 2 front players that deserve to be taken into account, namely Cenk Tosun and Enes Unal. They have talent and know how to score goals. They have scored at least once in their last six games.
Meanwhile, Russia scored 11 goals at the World Cup and often made unexpected surprises in every game. However, the record shows that they have only won 1 clean sheet in their last 15 international matches overall, and because now they will not get support like at the World Cup yesterday, many people believe that now their strength does not have to be taken into account.
However, the head to head record of both teams shows that Russia has better results than Turkey. In the last 4 clashes between the two teams, Russia won 2 times and have never lost to Turkey.
Looking at all the records, we are pretty sure that Russia will be able to survive the defeat in their away matches this time. A draw or victory for Russia can occur at the end of the game.
