A heavyweight clash at the Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium sees Turkey and France battling it out for the top spot in the Group H of EURO 2020 qualifiers.
After enduring an underwhelming UEFA Nations League campaign (W1, L3), the hosts have managed to bounce back and put together five straight games without a loss (W4, D1). All of those triumphs have arrived in their last four outings, with three of them being accompanied by a clean sheet. Another encouraging fact for the Crescent-Stars is a free-scoring form that has seen them score 2+ match goals on four consecutive occasions after failing to find the net in four games in a row. Still, Turkey’s recent home games have been short of entertainment, with four of their previous six home outings producing under 2.5 goals.
Just like Turkey, the visitors have racked up a four-game winning run ahead of this fixture, beating their rivals to nil three times too. Notably, the reigning World Cup champions have won both of their previous ECQ outings by scoring precisely four goals per match. However, a potential worry for Didier Deschamps could be France’s indifferent away from since returning from Russia (W1, D1, L1), with three of those games featuring under 2.5 goals. Also, Les Bleus have failed to keep a clean sheet on four of their last six competitive road trips, conceding over 1.5 match goals twice in the process.
