The opening match of Euro 2020 sees Turkey taking on host nation, Italy. The pair will make up half of Group A, alongside Switzerland and Wales, with the Italians a clear favourite ($1.40*) to finish on top.
Italy are in a seriously rich vein of form. They’ve not tasted defeat in 27 matches, dating back to 2018 – a massive turnaround considering they failed to qualify for the World Cup that same year. Under Roberto Mancini, they’ve been a defensive juggernaut and have kept clean sheets in their last six fixtures.
Turkey have had a promising lead-up to this tournament, claiming wins over Moldova (2-0), Azerbaijan (2-1) as well as a goalless draw against Guinea. Needless to say Italy are a completely different proposition, with the Azzurri experts at maintaining possession and stifling any opposition attempts on goal.
SUGGESTED BET: Italy Win to Nil @ $2*
