Turkey Might be the Dark Horse of Euro 2024

Turkey started the campaign with a 3:1 win over the Euro debutant Georgia. It was a much more exciting game than what the final score might suggest, but the Turks can be satisfied with their performance.

They worked well as a team, with practically all of their players doing a very good job. The only player who we feel could’ve done better in that game is striker Baris Alper Yilmaz, who just couldn’t get on target.

It’s not easy to point out their best player in that game, but we can say for certain that Turkey’s right side was brilliant with full-back Mert Muldur and winger Arda Guler creating a huge number of chances, as well as doing well defensively.

The question, however, is whether they’ll be able to replicate that sort of performance in the duel with Portugal, considering that this time, they’ll be faced against Nuno Mendes, Ruben Dias, and other elite opponents.

All Eyes on CR7 Again

Did you know that Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all five previous Euro tournaments? In total, he’s got 14 goals to his name in this competition, which makes him the record-holder. But he failed to find the net in Portugal’s opening game of his sixth Euro tournament.

His team struggled a lot to break open the well-organized defense of the Czech Republic. The Czechs went 1:0 up around the one-hour mark, after which they parked the bus in front of their goal. CR7 and his teammates created plenty of chances before one of the opposition players made it 1:1 with an own goal.

The Portuguese had to wait until the second minute of the stoppage time for the winner. It was the work of Porto’s forward Francisco Conceicao. Ronaldo failed to score in that game, but Portugal’s 39-year-old captain had a fine game otherwise. This is what gives this team’s fans a lot of hope ahead of the clash with Turkey.

Turkey vs. Portugal Prediction

The Czechs entered the game with Portugal knowing they stand a little chance of winning. That’s why they defended ferociously, letting Portugal have the ball. With practically all of their players close to their own goal, it wasn’t too hard to stop Cristiano Ronaldo, but this time, we suspect it’s going to be different.

This time, CR7 & Co. are playing against attacking-minded Turkey, whose players will go forward to try and score. As a result, we could see some goals on both ends. Still, it’s Portugal who we think will score more. And it’s Portugal’s captain who we think will score at least once on Saturday.

Pick: Portugal & Over 2.5 Goals
