Sports Ticket: Turkey vs Azerbaijan Int. Friendly Live | Live Match Online | Sky Sports Live | TUR vs AZE Live Today Match Online
Azerbaijan will be looking to raise the spirits even more after a decent start (in terms of their performances) to the World Cup qualifying campaign. They look to have improved defensively under Giovanni de Biasi and we feel they might cause troubles to Turkey here.
Of course, the hosts are massive favorites, but we would not be surprised to see just one goal making the difference on the occasion. A draw at the half time and Turkey’s victory at the end looks as a great betting option at the whopping 4.00 odds. We will also back the Under 2.5 goals FT at the 2.25 odds.
Turkey will start their set of tests ahead of the EURO 2021 on Thursday afternoon when they play host to Azerbaijan in an international friendly at Bancesehir Okullari Stadyumu in Alanya.
The Turks opened the 2022 World Cup qualifications in a spectacular manner, bagging seven goals in back-to-back wins over the likes of the Netherlands and Norway at the start of the campaign.
Nevertheless, they failed to capitalize on such a start by shockingly dropping the ball against underdogs Latvia in the third round in late-March this year.
Turkey conceded three goals on the occasion (a 3-3 draw) and the head coach Senol Gunes will certainly insist on fixing these defensive holes in pre-Euro friendlies.
A commanding clean-sheet victory over Azerbaijan on Thursday would be big for Turkey who want to build on momentum ahead of the EURO opener against Italy on June 11th.
Azerbaijan will not feature the continental competition following a dreadful qualifying campaign.
The team led by Nikola Jurcevic finished the EURO qualifications with seven defeats and one draw in eight games. Interestingly, the draw came against the World Cup runners-up Croatia.
Jurecevic has departed following such a horrendous campaign, freeing up the space for Giovanni De Biasi.
Azerbaijan did show improvements under the Italian manager as they opened the 2020 World Cup qualifications with a pair of narrow defeats to the likes of Portugal (0-1) and Serbia (1-2) back in March.
