International Friendlies | Italy VS Turkey; Wednesday 05 June at 03:00 GMT +8

Italy will return to the major tournaments at EURO, defending their title from the previous European Championship. Although not as strong as England or France, Italy is in good form with three wins in the last four matches. They secured another win in a friendly against Ecuador, 2-0. Turkey, which missed the World Cup after losing all three games in the group and the World Cup, hopes to progress to the knockout phase. However, they have not won in the last three matches, losing 6-1 in a friendly against Austria. Turkey needs one good result before EURO to regain confidence.

Italy is performing well, particularly in defense, with only one goal in the last three matches, while Turkey has only scored two goals in the previous three games. They are expected to dominate against Turkey on Tuesday.

Italy will miss experienced Francesco Acerbi at EURO due to a chronic groin injury, but head coach Luciano Spalletti believes his team has everything to defend the title. Nicolo Fagioli was included, after missing most of the previous season due to a betting ban.

Ismail Yuksek, Turkey’s defensive midfielder, injured himself late in the season, causing doubts about his EURO status. However, reports suggest he started individual training and may be ready.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Donnarumma
Defenders: Alessandro Buongiorno, Giorgio Scalvini, Alessandro Bastoni
Midfielders: Federico Dimarco, Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Davide Frattesi
