Turkey vs Portugal Euro 2024 Prediction: Seleção das Quinas to assert dominance?

Turkey vs Portugal Latest Prediction

This is a clash between one of the pre-tournament favourites and a team that disappointed in the last edition of this competition despite being labelled as ‘dark horses’.

2016 champions Portugal will fancy their chances once again in Germany this summer, boasting a squad packed with attacking quality and defensive solidity. On paper, Roberto Martinez’s men have one of the easier group draws at Euro 2024 and coming off the back of their opener against the Czech Republic, Portugal will look to assert their dominance.

Turkey will hope for a win in their opening match against minnows Georgia to take the pressure off here, but any result would be welcome given how close the fight for second place in Group F could be.

Turkey Latest Team News

Turkey will lean heavily on midfield quality at Euro 2024, with Inter’s Hakan Calhanoglou and Orkun Kokcu of Benfica providing a great platform for Real Madrid talent Arda Guler. This feels like a much more dynamic group than that which disappointed so much at the previous European Championships and they could spring a few surprises in Germany.

Portugal Latest Team News

Few sides can boast the level of quality and pedigree Portugal are bringing to Euro 2024. A potential front three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael Leao and Bernardo Silva is terrifying enough, not least when it’s supplied by the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Vitinha. Ruben Dias and Goncalo Inacio provide a defensive platform for a side that feels like it has incredible balance. Can Martinez get the tactics right?

Turkey vs Portugal Head to Head

This has been a regular fixture at the Euros, with the most recent meeting at this competition a 2-0 win for Portugal during the Euro 2008 group stages — a match which Cristiano Ronaldo played in. The most recent meeting between these nations was Portugal’s 3-1 win to seal their place at the 2022 World Cup.
