The Euro 2020 group stage match between Italy and Turkey features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday June 11.
Bet Of The Day June 11 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We aim for our fifth #BOTD on the trot when we target the Euro 2020 opener between Italy and Turkey for today’s best.
Italy are in sensational form heading into the competition, winning their last eight matches in a row.
Additionally, Italy have kept a clean sheet in all eight of those victories. Their defence is reminiscent of their glory days, while the likes of Immobile and Insigne in attack give Italy a perfect balance across the park.
Italy are unbeaten in their last 27 games and have won 22 of those fixtures, drawing the other five. If they go through the group stage without a defeat, they will equal the Italian record for most games unbeaten (30, which has stood since 1939).
With home ground advantage in Rome (a venue they have an 80 per cent winning rate at tournament finals), Italy have everything going for them in this match-up.
Turkey haven’t been very impressive in their most recent fixtures, drawing 3-3 with Latvia, edging Azerbaijan 2-1, drawing 0-0 with Guinea and beating Moldova 2-0.
They have a considerable step up in class here. Turkey have never beaten Italy, losing seven of their 10 previous meetings, while they have also lost all four of their opening Euro finals matches.
Italy are in absolutely scintillating form and are genuine contenders for the trophy at this tournament. We’ll be backing Italy to win this clash to nil at $2.10 with bet365.
