Euro 2020 is finally upon us, albeit 12 months delayed, as Turkey travel to Rome this Friday to take on Italy in Group A match play on opening night.

Italy come into their first game of Euro 2020 as red-hot -200 favourites with the soccer bookies, and it is easy to see why that is the case. The Azzurri have not tasted defeat since 2018 in international fixtures, and with plenty of young talent mixed in with veteran minds, they have the potential to go a long way in the tournament.

Turkey (+700) have a terrible overall record against Italy, so it is no surprise to see them priced as rank outsiders as they venture into the lion’s den. The Crescent Stars have three draws and seven losses from their 10 meetings with the Italians, and this squad does not seem to have the players to trouble the three-time European Championship finalists.

Turkey vs Italy Euro 2020 match analysis

With plenty of young talent coming through, this Italian side looks perfectly placed to get out of the group stage and cause some damage in the knockout stages. With an attacking combination of Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne and Domenico Berardi ahead of a midfield including Jorginho and Nicolo Barella they will give the Turkey defence plenty of issues come Friday night. With the safe hands of Gianluigi Donnarumma in net and Alessandro Florenzi, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci in defence, the Italians look all-round a strong side for Euro 2020.

Turkey, on the other hand, will be without their leading goalscorer from the qualifying stages in Cenk Tosun. The Turks have won four of their past six matches in international competitions and have some talented youngsters in the line-up, so they will be hopeful of gaining a result in this first match. Italy are yet to concede a goal in 2021, and without Tosun in attack, Turkey will be heavily reliant on the likes of Burak Yilmaz.

Correct score: Italy 3-0

Recent history points towards an easy win for an Italian side looking to continue its unbeaten run under manager Roberto Mancini. With the likes of Immobile and Insigne in attack, and Juventus stars Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernadeschi coming off the bench, they have too many weapons for this young Turkish defence to handle.

Italy to win 3-0


Anytime goalscorer: Lorenzo Insigne

In Italy’s last friendly before Euro 2020, Insigne managed to hit the back of the net when the Azzurri put four goals past the Czech Republic. The left winger from Napoli is one of the most creative players in this Italian side and will prove hard to contain on Friday night. With 19 goals for Napoli in the Serie A this domestic season, the +240 on offer for Insigne to score at any time is hard to ignore.
