Turkey vs France Match Preview
Something has to give between the two favourites for Euro 2020 qualification from Group H, with both France and Turkey holding 100% winning records this year.
France could not translate their World Cup triumph into UEFA Nations League success, bowing out against the Netherlands, but they have made the ideal start on the road towards the European crown by putting four goals past both Moldova and Iceland.
Last Sunday, the world champions cruised to a 2-0 victory over Bolivia in Nantes to make it three wins out of three in 2019.
Turkey have gone one better with a quartet of triumphs, beating Albania and Moldova comfortably to nil in the qualifiers and then winning both of their home warm-up games against Greece and Uzbekistan ahead of the end-of-season competitive fixtures.
It has represented a fine opening to the second spell at the helm for Senol Gunes, who led Turkey to a brilliant third place at the 2002 World Cup and, more recently, Besiktas to back-to-back Super Lig titles in 2016 and 2017.
However, the French are much the most difficult opponents Turkey have faced since Gunes’ return in charge of the national team and Les Bleus are backed to give their hosts something of a reality check by proving too strong.
