Turkey vs Iceland PredictionTurkey vs Iceland Prediction and Preview for Thursday's Euro 2020 group qualifier. Sitting atop Group H of the Euro 2020 Qualifiers, level on points with World Champions France, the Turks could not have asked for a better qualifying campaign. Against all odds, they have fought their way to the top of the standings, much to the amazement of fans and the media alike.
Match status: Euro 2020 Qualification - Group H
Kick-off:
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadium (Istanbul)
Following the thrilling one-all draw against group rivals France last time out, The Crescent-Stars will be expected to put up similar performance when they welcome the Icelanders for a crunch clash at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium tomorrow evening.

With just two fixtures left for Senol Gunes’ charges, a win against Our Boys will all but secure a ticket at the Euros finals. The visitors are definitely no push-overs in this tie; the Turks will sweat blood on the pitch to post all three points on the board.

Turkey v Iceland Team News

The home side have been absolutely outstanding so far, the highlight of their magnificent campaign coming in the game against the French national team last time out. The Turks hassled and harried through the entire 90 minutes to hold their opponent to a drab draw.

At a point in the game, it seemed like a training session for Les Bleus as they kept pumping balls into the Turkish final third, in search for the winning goal. All efforts proved futile however, as the Turkish defense held their own, intercepting and returning every single ball that found its way into the area.

Needless to say, holding Didier Deschamps’ men to a draw at Stade de France last time out was a tremendous feat. However, it is worth noting that they headed into that game as slight favorites, having won the reverse fixture on home turf.

No sane person would have placed a bet on Turkey finishing top of the Euro Qualifying Group H prior to the start of the campaign but that is exactly how things have taken shape. Senol Gunes should be lauded for the excellent work he has put into this team, turning them from huge underdogs to overwhelming favorites to qualify.

Iceland, on the other hand, can give themselves a subtle pat on the back for their performances and results so far. Though the hosts have been the better team, Our Boys are not so far behind, sitting third on the group standings, just four points adrift their opponent.

The Group H qualifying race is fiece at the moment and it’s looking increasingly likely that this race will go right down to the wire.

A win for Erik Hamren’s men will throw the group’s qualifying belts straight right into the air and you definitely cannot rule them out from salvaging something from this tie. They will take confidence from the easy home victory they scored against group minnows Andorra last time out but it is expected to be a different ball game against the Turks on away territory.

Also, they did come away with maximum points in the reverse fixture of this particular game and have performed fantastically well in recent head-to-head encounters. We have seen them display an amazing fighting spirit on numerous occasions, which should be enough to see them score at least one goal in this game.

Though, the Turks are seen as slight favorites to win this one, count on Erik Hamren’s men to give the home side a run for their money. They certainly have what it takes to post a goal or two in this encounter.
