With two nations all but securing their spot at next year’s European Championships, Turkey will make the trip to defending world champions France on Monday night in what could be a celebration encounter.
Securing a dramatic 1-0 win over Albania thanks to an injury-time strike, Monday’s guests now find themselves at the top of Group H and The Reds firmly have their sights set on securing top-spot come next month.
On the flip side, Turkey are not the only nation that are coming off the back of a hard-fought 1-0 win over the weekend.
Battling past a resilient Iceland on foreign soil, Les Bleus have now extended their winning run to four matches on the bounce and will be looking to right a wrong at the Stade de France on Monday.
Suffering a shock 2-0 loss when they made the trip out to Konya back in June, you might be interested to know that Turkey can be found as high as 11/1 with Bet365 to land what would be a pair of famous victories.
France look to claim top spot
Although France’s 2-0 defeat away at Turkey may have sent shockwaves across Europe and also saw Monday’s guests claim top spot in Group H, Les Bleus have bounced back in some style.
Extending their winning run to four matches after coming past a plucky Iceland over the weekend, the reigning world champions are now seen to be a landslide favourite to clinch top spot next month.
Already priced as high as 1/8 with Ladbrokes to leapfrog Turkey to top spot, there is no doubt that Head Coach Didier Deschamps will be most impressed by his side’s form in the final third.
Averaging almost three strikes per game in their seven Group H appearances, one man to watch on Monday could be Bayern Munich winger, Kingsley Coman.
While the pacey forward might have had to settle for a rotation role with the defending German champions, the 23-year-old has done an impressive job of deputizing for Kylian Mbappe.
Bagging three qualifying strikes in as many appearances, you might be interested to know that Coman can be found at 23/10 with Betfair to once again find the net on Monday night.
Turkey’s newfound resolve continues
Although The Reds might be priced as high as 5/1 with Bet365 to clinch top spot in Group A come next month, the mood around Turkey’s camp remains the highest it has been in recent memory.
Battling past Albania over the weekend, Head Coach Şenol Güneş has seen his side win six of their seven EURO 2020 qualifying matchups, including their famous 2-0 win over France back in June.
There is no doubt that the former Beşiktaş boss will be most pleased by his side’s newfound defensive resolve.
Monday’s guests have recorded a trio of clean sheets on the bounce and have remarkably shipped just two goals so far.
Along with showing some much-needed stability at the back, Turkey do have one leading man who has continued to lead their charge during qualifying.
Once again bagging the winner against Albania last time out, Everton outcast Cenk Tosun has already bagged five Group A goals in just six appearances, including three in his last two.
Expected to lead the line out in Paris on Monday, the 28-year-old can be found at 9/2 with Betfair to extend on his international purple patch on foreign soil.
