Turkey Team News
The Turkish national team defeated Armenia away from home in the first round of EURO qualifiers with a score of 1:2. Ozan Kabak’s own goal in the 10th minute gave the home team the advantage, and the equalizer came 25 minutes later when Orkun Kokcu hit. Kerem Akturkoglu scored the winning goal for the visitors in the 64th minute, and the score remained unchanged until the end of the match.
In the League of Nations, they competed in the C League and won a higher ranking by winning first place in the group ahead of Luxembourg, the Faroe Islands, and Lithuania. In total, they won 13 points, two more than second-placed Luxembourg.
A slightly different formation of Turkish coach Stefan Kuntz is expected compared to the previous game because he will play against a much more serious opponent. Enes Unal should keep the place of the first striker, but Kerem Akturkoglu could find himself in the starting 11, as he scored a goal as a substitute.
Croatia Team News
In the previous round, Croatia failed to triumph at home, and their opponent was Wales. Although they took the lead in the middle of the first half through Andrej Kramarić, they conceded a goal at the very end of the match, for the final 1:1. Now they have a chance to “make amends”, however, they will not have the advantage of the home field, and they are also expected to face an opponent who is in good shape.
Before participating in the World Cup and winning third place with a 2:1 victory over Morocco, they finished first in the A League of Nations competition ahead of Denmark, France, and Austria.
It is assumed that Josip Šutalo will again be a tandem in the back line with Josko Guardiol and that the trio of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, and Marcelo Brozovic will play again in the midfield. Mario Pašalić should join Ivan Perišić and Andrej Kramarić in the attack, but we will have to see.
