Turkey vs Portugal Preview


Turkey rarely keep clean sheets which should suit Portugal’s attack. I am expecting an open game, Ronaldo to get on the score sheet in a 3-1 victory for the Seleção.

Head to Head


Portugal have a 7-2 advantage against Turkey.

They last met in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Portugal winning 3-1 in Porto where Otávio, Diogo Jota and Matheus Nunes on target.

Turkey Form


Turkey won five of their opening seven Euro 2024 qualifiers. Vincenzo Montella became the new manager in September, winning 1-0 in Croatia before beating Latvia 4-0 in Konya.

The Crescent-Stars drew 1-1 in Wales on the final matchday to finish top of Group D.

Montella’s side were average in four friendlies, a 1-0 defeat in Hungary followed by a 6-1 thrashing in Austria. They earned a 0-0 draw in Italy, ending with a 2-1 defeat in Poland where they conceded in the 90th minute.

Turkey started their Euro 2024 campaign with a 3-1 victory against Georgia. Mert Muldur opened the scoring, going into the second half level where Arda Güler scored a sensational goal followed by Kerem Akturkoglu deep into added time.

Turkey Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Mert Gunok, Altay Bayindir, Ugurcan Cakir
Defenders: Zeki Celik, Merih Demiral, Samet Akaydin, Ahmetcan Kaplan, Abdulkerim Bardakci, Mert Muldur, Ferdi Kadioglu, Kaan Ayhan
Midfielders: Okay Yokuslu, Orkun Kokcu, Arda Guler, Hakan Calhanoglu, Yusuf Yazici, Salih Ozcan, İsmail Yuksek, İrfan Kahveci, Baris Alper Yilmaz, Yunus Akgun
Forwards: Kerem Akturkoglu, Cenk Tosun, Kenan Yildiz, Semih Kilicsoy, Bertug Yildirim

Montella has been dealt some big blows on the injury front with defenders Caglar Soyuncu, Ozan Kabak and Ridvan Yilmaz all out.

The attack is depleted with Enes Unal and Cengiz Under on the treatment table.

Calhanoglu has scored 18 goals in 87 appearances, Tosun with 20 goals in 51 caps.

Portugal Form


Portugal won all ten European Championship qualifiers, nine of those victories coming with clean sheets. The only time they conceded was in a 3-2 victory against Slovakia.

The Selecão played twice in March, a 5-2 win against Sweden and 2-0 defeat in Slovenia. They recently played three friendlies, beating Finland 4-2 followed by a 2-1 defeat to Croatia and comfortable 3-0 victory over Republic of Ireland. 

Roberto Martinez’s side left it late to beat Czech Republic in their opening match at Euro 2024. Conceding in the 62nd minute, they equalised through an own goal before Francisco Conceição came off the bench to score in added time.

Portugal Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício, José Sá, Diogo Costa
Defenders: Nélson Semedo, Pepe, Rúben Dias, Diogo Dalot, Goncalo Inácio, Nuno Mendes, João Cancelo, António Silva
Midfielders: João Palhinha, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Danilo Pereira, João Neves, Matheus Nunes, Rúben Neves, Vitinha
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Goncalo Ramos, João Félix, Rafael Leão, Diogo Jota, Pedro Neto, Francisco Conceicão

João Mário, Toti Gomes and Bruma miss out after being called up in March.

Raphaël Guerreiro and Francisco Trincão are injured. Matheus Nunes was called up to replace Otávio.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 130 goals in 208 appearances.

Verdict

Turkey failed to win in four friendlies, conceding nine goals, and gave up plenty of chances against Georgia. Portugal have dangerous weapons up front, Ronaldo the obvious choice to score and help his side secure a Round of 16 spot.
