EURO 2016 – GROUP D
CZECH REPUBLIC v TURKEY
The Czech Republic pulled off a vailiant 2-2 draw in game two after being 2-0 down. They will need to defeat Turkey to have any chance of qualifying automatically and must hope Spain claim three points of Croatia in the group’s other match. After their 3-0 humbling defeat to Spain, Turkey are all but out of the tournament. They would need to win heavily against the Czechs to try and become one of the four best third-placed teams and based on their first two matches, this looks unlikely.
This will be the 20th meeting between the two with Czech Republic winning 12 of the previous 19 while Turkey have won four including the last one in October during qualification. There have been 31 goals in the last nine games between these two nations, with at least two goals being scored in each of those nine fixtures.
So if the Czechs need a win and hope Croatia lose to Spain, then Pavel Vrba’s men would then want at least one of the margins of victory in those games to be two goals or more. Either way, the Czechs should not just be chasing a win, but also trying to score as many goals as possible. Over 2.5 Goals is valued at 2.33 with 188Bet which looks a great bet.
The only downfall I can spot is that neither team has an in-form attacker. The absence of free-agent Tomas Rosicky cuts off an important supply line to the Czech front men, while Turkey as a team have gone goalless through their first two matches. However, one player I am a big fan of, especially due to his days playing in Holland for PEC Zwolle is Czech striker Tomas Necid.
The 6ft 3 striker notched in the 2-2 draw and for him to score anytime on Tuesday night is a huge 3.77 at 888 Sport.
TIP: Over 2.5 Goals (2.33 at 188Bet)
TIP: Tomas Necid to score anytime (3.77 at 888 Sport)
