The Czech Republic and Turkey will have few secrets from each other, having been drawn together in the same Euro 2016 qualifying group. Those two matches both ended in victories for the away teams, with the Czechs prevailing 2-1 in Istanbul, before the Turks went on to win 2-0 in Prague (although by that stage the Czech Republic were already destined for the finals).
On this occasion the pre-tournament group odds would suggest that the loser in this match will be going home, although such is the quality in Group D it is distinctly possible that both these teams could be making an early exit, particularly were they to cancel each other out in Lens. Check out Euro 2016 Enhanced free bets as this will definitely be interesting to bet on.
As with their other group rivals, both the Czech Republic and Turkey look strongest in midfield. The Czechs perhaps lack the big names (particularly with Tomas Rosicky likely to miss out), but there is strong competition for places.
The Czech Republic will also be buoyed by Sparta Prague’s run to the Europa League quarter-finals this season, with a good contingent of Pavel Vrba’s squad set to come from the club.
Any Czech Republic v Turkey free bets will need to take account of each team’s situation going into the game, with there being a possibility that one of them may already be effectively out depending on how other groups have panned out. In all likelihood, any victor in this game will expect to progress to the last 16 though, so there should be plenty at stake.
In total they’ve faced each other on nine occasions, with the Czech Republic leading Turkey by five wins to three with one game being drawn and that narrow advantage for the Czechs is largely evident in the majority of the pre-tournament Czech Republic v Turkey betting odds too.
