Turkey Euro 2024 Fixtures: Dates, Venues and Analysis

Turkey saw their Euro 2024 hopes come to an end due to a spirited Netherlands come back in their quarter final match up. 

Portugal were the obvious favourites to finish top in Group F, but below them, any one of Turkey, the Czech Republic or Georgia fancied their chances of taking second place. It was Turkey that proved to be head and shoulders above both of the other runners in the race for second though, beating both to finish in second with six points.

This set them on a collision course with winners of Group D, Austria. Turkey got a 2-0 lead with both goals from Merih Demiral, but has to withstand a lot of pressure to seal their place in the final eight.

Date Fixture Ground
06/07 Netherlands 2-1 Turkey Olympiastadion, Berlin

Recent matches between these nations have been high on drama and high on goals. In their World Cup qualifying group in 2021, Turkey beat Netherlands 4-2 in Istanbul, before a Memphis Depay hat-trick inspired Oranje to a 6-1 demolition in Amsterdam later in the campaign.
The overall record is fairly close, with Netherlands having the edge six wins to four, with four draws as well.

Both sides may well see this as their most winable group game, so we’re about as likely to see either an overly-cautious stalemate or two sides going gung-ho in an absolute thriller. There isn’t much to go off in terms of previous meetings, with these two nations not facing each other since a friendly back in May 2012 which, for the record, was won 3-1 by Turkey.

Group F – Matchday Two

Turkey’s biggest test comes in their second match against group favourites and 2016 European champions, Portugal. Turkey have only beaten Portugal on two occasions, but have never done so in a competitive match. Their most recent defeat was a heartbreaking 3-1 during qualifying playoffs for the 2022 World Cup, where Portugal managed to reach the quarter-finals. This will be the fourth meeting between these nations at the European Champions, with Portugal winning the previous three by a 5-0 combined scoreline.

Group F – Matchday Three

Group F

Depending on previous results, this might be the key clash in Group F when it comes to securing second spot. Each nation has won five of the 11 previous meetings with only one draw shared, but it’s Turkey who have enjoyed recent dominance with three wins in their last three against the Czech Republic; including during the Euro 2016 group stage.
