France vs Turkey
Competition – Euro 2020 Qualifying
Stadium – Stade de France
Date: 14th October 2019
Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT
France host Turkey in this game hoping to go top of this tightly-contested group. Les Bleus have been impressive however Turkey have given them a run for their money as both sides come into this game level on points.
Turkey hold the slight advantage having won the reverse fixture and they will be looking to get a result in this game as well.
France have historically struggled in qualifiers, but they have done just about enough this time around. They have scored 20 goals in 8 qualifying games so far, but they still need to do better in defence as they have allowed a number of teams breach their rearguard so far.
What they lack in defence they have found a way to make up for in their attack as they have scored quite often and that may be their saving grace in this game.
Turkey have been a solid side to play against in this campaign and the French team know this. Les Bleus were outplayed in the reverse fixture in all aspects by and the visitors have mirrored their results so far.
Turkey come here having won their two matches against Moldova and Albania while thrashing Andorra along the way.
The visitors haven’t scored many goals, but they have been effective in keeping clean sheets and getting narrow victories.
