Czech Republic – Turkey Predictions and Preview

  • After losing their opening match against Portugal and drawing their second match against Georgia, the Czech Republic team needs to secure at least a point in their match against Turkey to have a chance of advancing from Group F in the Euro 2024 tournament. If they fail to win, they will finish the group stage without a victory, which would be the second time in their history of participating in the Euros. The first time this happened was in 2016, when they also played Turkey in their final group game.
  • Eight years ago, the Czechs lost that match 2-0 in Lens, and they also lost 3-2 against Turkey in the group stage of Euro 2008. In fact, they have won only two of the last eight matches against Turkey (D1, L5). However, with all the other groups completed by the time this match begins on Wednesday, Ivan Hašek’s team should have a clear understanding of what is required to qualify as one of the best third-placed teams.
  • Turkey could also achieve this goal through the knockout rounds, but with three points already on their scoresheet, their hopes for a top-two finish will be high. After failing to win five games in a row before the tournament (D2, L3), this would represent an excellent return for the Crescent-Stars, especially since they failed to make it out of the group in each of the last two Euros.
  • A convincing 3-1 victory over Georgia in their first match gave rise to hopes that Turkey would emulate the class of 2008, who reached the semi-finals. However, their dreams were shattered by Portugal, who won easily with a score of 3-0 on Saturday. Since then, they have failed to score more than one goal in six of their last seven games, which will surely be on the mind of coach Vincenzo Montella, who knows that his team only needs a point here to secure a top-two finish.
  • Players to watch: With in-form striker Patrik Schick injured, Mojmír Chytil is set to make his first start of the tournament. The Czech forward has scored six goals from his previous seven international starts, with his team winning three times when he found the net. Captain Hakan Çalhanoğlu scored the winning goal in the last head-to-head match between the teams, and the midfielder is one of only five players to score for his country across their six games in 2024.
  • Hot streak: The Czech Republic team has scored at least one second-half goal in each of their last nine games.
