The UEFA Euro 2020 tournament gets underway today, with Italy taking on Turkey in a Group A match at the Stadio Olimpico.
Turkey is one of the many dark horses at Euro 2020 this year, and they could cause some problems for the Italians today. The away team defeated Moldova 2-0 earlier this week and will be looking for an upset.
Italy, on the other hand, is the best team in their group on paper and has put together a strong squad under the guidance of the seasoned Roberto Mancini.
Last weekend, the Azzurri scored four goals against the Czech Republic, and they will be confident going into this match.
Turkey vs Italy Team News
Italy has been dealt a major setback just days before their first Euro 2020 match, with Lorenzo Pellegrini suffering an injury during training. Italy’s attacking options are Domenico Berardi and Federico Chiesa, and Mancini will have to choose between the two to lead the line alongside Immobile and Insigne.
Marco Verratti is also out with a knock and will most likely return at Euro 2020. Manuel Locatelli has had a fantastic season and will most likely play a role in Italy’s midfield.
Injured: Lorenzo Pellegrini
Doubtful: Marco Verratti
Turkey currently has a fully fit squad and could give Italy a run for their money in this match. Yusuf Yazici and Burak Yilmaz have had a successful partnership for Lille in Ligue 1 and will be looking to continue that success at Euro 2020.
Hakan Calhanogly, his team’s creator-in-chief, will have to step up for Turkey in this game. Caglar Soyuncu and Merih Demiral are in charge of the central defensive positions, and they will be crucial against Italy.
