Turkey vs Ireland – International Friendly: In one of the friendly matches taking place this Friday, played in Turkey, in the city of Antalya
The Turkish national team will face the visiting side Ireland…
With both teams facing off for the first time since 2014, with the Turks winning back then on Irish soil, by 1-2, on a match that was also a friendly.
The home side is coming off a great disappointment on their qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup, in Russia, having made a terrible campaign on that streak of international matches,
having only finished in 4th place of their group I, finishing 7 points away from the 1st place of the group, Iceland, and winning less than half the matches they’ve played during that campaign.
The team led by Mircea Lucescu is coming off a terrible streak of results, not winning since September of 2017, being winless for 4 matches, and having lost 3 of those 4 encounters.
As for the visiting side, they are also coming off a great disappointment on their qualifying campaign for the Russia World Cup, this year, having finished on the play-off qualification zone,
but then losing on the play-off against Denmark convincingly, with the Irish being eliminated.
The team is coming off a streak of some alternation in terms of results, with the team being battered at home by the Nordics, ending up eliminated from the World Cup, but then maintaining their manager Martin O’Neill.
Turkey vs Ireland – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With an Irish team that is relatively consistent on the defensive point of view, with most of their matches finishing without many goals,
I believe that in this match, after an elimination and on a match that doesn’t count for nothing in reality, we will have a balanced match without a lot of goals or intensity.
