Turkey vs Portugal

Turkiye-vs-Portugal-euro2024Turkey takes on Portugal in the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund on Saturday in a game that will likely decide Group F’s winner at Euro 2024. The Turks sit top of the group courtesy of their 3-1 win over Georgia in their opener on Tuesday and that puts them in pole position to progress to the knockout stages. A win here would practically guarantee that, but a draw wouldn’t be the end of the world, either. That takes the pressure off them a little bit and they can maybe come into this game more relaxed.

Wins aren’t much more dramatic than Portugal’s against the Czech Republic on Tuesday night. It took a stoppage-time goal to hand the Portuguese all 3 points against the Czechs, and they’ll be keen to land a more straightforward win here. That could prove tough going for Roberto Martinez’s men, as they struggled to carve out clear-cut chances until late on against the Czech Republic. They’ll need to be on it from the very first whistle if they’re to win, but anything is possible when you have Cristiano Ronaldo in your team.

Portugal are the favourites to win it in the match result market and we’re happy to go along with that. Turkey have shown that they can be effective in attack, so the extra value is in Portugal to win and both teams to score the market. In tight games, set pieces can make the difference and, with Ronaldo such a threat aerially, he’s worth a punt to score a header in the game. Hakan Calhanoglu almost scored a screamer against Georgia from far out, we’re going back in on him to score from outside of the area.
