Turkey vs Albania Predictions and Betting Preview, 11 Oct 2019

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Surprise group leaders Turkey will take on Albania on Friday evening as they continue their push for a place in the Euro 2020 finals. The Crescent-Stars sent shockwaves round the football world by defeating 2018 World Cup champions France in a close encounter earlier in the qualification stages.
Match status: Euro 2020 Qualification - Group H
Kick-off:
Venue: Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium (Istanbul)
Not only did they snatch all three points from Didier Deschamp’s men, they did that while keeping a clean sheet. It must be said, that was a very remarkable feat.

However, an unexpected loss against Iceland placed a dent on a roller-coaster of a qualifying journey for the Turkish national team, almost hampering their chance of topping Group H.

However, with a game against a comparatively weaker Albania side on the cards, they are still considered to be in contention for a top place finish from the group.

Turkey v Albania Team News

Emre Belozoglu and his boys are currently comfortably placed at the summit of the Group H table, their performances being of the highest quality. You cannot but admire the tactic and playing style that the Turkish head coach has incorporated in his players.

In front of goal, they have been nothing short of prolific, registering a total of 14 goals, shipping just 2 goals in the process. Such is the balance of the team’s attacking and defensive units. By far, they have the best defensive record in the group.

Still on their defensive prowess, they have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 games in the qualifiers, most notably against France. They should be sitting comfortably at the top of the table right now, if not for the slip against Iceland, where they allowed in two goals.

From the looks of things, France, Turkey and Iceland are the three teams actively battling for the two available slots at the Euro 2020 finals. Hence, each and every game will be approached with the same vigour and tenacity as there is no room for complacency.

Senol Gunes will be hoping to make the best use of his team’s home advantage when his team lock horns with Albania on Friday. He will try to motivate his team to avoid complacency creeping into his squad, as Albania cannot be taken as walk overs.

Albania’s rotten record on the road is well documented, losing four out of their last five away games and failing to find the back of the net in three of those.

In truth, The Red and Blacks still have a good shot at promotion. A good run of form coupled with some wins along the road could place them in the contention for qualification from Group H. The Albanian players will take motivation from this possibility and try to salvage something meaningful on away soil.

Turkey vs Albania Predictions

Turkey have been on red-hot form so far in the Euro 2020 qualifiers and it is hard to see past a win for the hosts. Apart from their excellent form heading into the game, they have the advantage of playing on home soil. Albania should be able to avoid taking too many hits, probably losing by nothing less than a goal.
