Czech Republic vs Turkey

Czechia-vs-Turkiye-euro2024Czech Republic can book their place in the last 16 as they take on Turkey at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg on Wednesday. The Czechs currently sit two points behind their opponents, so a win here would see them swap places and go through automatically. They have no hope of making it through as one of the best-performing third-placed teams, so a win is a must if they’re to stay in Euro 2024. Patrick Schick is an injury doubt for this game, and if he isn’t starting, their chances of winning will shorten.

Turkey have been one of the more entertaining sides to watch at this tournament. Their two games so far have produced a total of 7 goals, so they’re certainly not shy of scoring or conceding. The opening 3-1 win over Georgia was a pulsating match-up that was eventually won by the better team. However, they became the victims of that same fate as they fell to a 3-0 defeat to Portugal last time out. The last three meetings between these two nations have gone the way of Turkey, most recently in a 2022 friendly match.

The bookmakers are seriously struggling to separate these two. You’ll see either side installed as the favourite in the match result market, depending on who you bet with. Of the two, we’re siding with Czechia, who’ve shown more attacking prowess than their opponents so far. For even more value, back the Czech Republic to win with both teams scoring in the game. Hakan Calhanoglu has been banging on the door and is the set piece taker for Turkey, so a small punt on him to score from outside the area is advised. Vladimir Coufal seems most likely to be carded.
