Expect Goals When Turkey Plays Czechs

Czech Republic Turkey Euro 2016

While Turkey is basically eliminated from Euro 2016, Czech Republic still has an outside chance of reaching the next round when the pair meet Tuesday. We look back at the history between these two, one thing becomes clear: We can probably expect to see some goals.

SHARK BITES
  • Turkey has now lost three of its last four matches overall.
  • Turkey has yet to score a goal at Euro 2016.
  • These two split two matches against each other in qualifying.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Czechs as slight favorites at +145 while Turkey is +200 and the Draw is +225. The game is a Pick in spread betting with Czech Republic -140 and Turkey +110. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 2 goals is -145 while UNDER 2 goals is +120.

These two teams have met nine times over the years and all results had at least two goals scored. In fact, there has been an average of 3.44 goals scored per game in those nine contests.

The Czechs have won five of those matches while Turkey has won three.

The Czechs have one point after salvaging a draw versus Croatia in their last contests and depending on the result here plus the result in the Spain-Croatia game, could make secure passage to the Round of 16.

The bad news is that they will be without midfield playmaker Thomas Rosicky for this and any future match in Euro 2016. The Arsenal man suffered a thigh injury against Croatia and his international career is probably over as a result.
