What is the form of Turkey compared to Iceland?
Turkey’s form as of late has been excellent. There’s a reason why they top their group ahead of France – whom they are level on points with – and Iceland. The Crescent-Stars are unbeaten in their last four games and have lost only once in their last 11 matches.
Speaking of that one defeat Turkey suffered, it came against none other than Iceland. They have won only once in their last three games but they emerged triumphant in their last encounter with Thursday’s opponent. Strákarnir okkar have lost three times in their last 11 games, drawing three and winning the rest.
Turkey vs Iceland head-to-head record
As mentioned above, the last time these two sides met, it was Iceland that came away with the win. In fact, Turkey are on a three-game losing streak in this fixture. However, seven of the last eight wins in this tie went to the home side, which is good news for the Crescent-Stars.
Games played: 12
Turkey wins: 2
Iceland wins: 8
A lot is at stake in this clash. Only two games remain in the qualifying group and Turkey, Iceland, and France are all in the mix for the two tickets to Euro 2020. Strákarnir okkar trail the top two sides by four points which means they would need two wins to stand a chance of leapfrogging one of the two.
Unfortunately, Turkey are on a high heading into this tie. Their last game saw them travel to France and pick up a crucial draw, with injuries robbing Deschamps of several key players. After winning their first clash with the World Cup champions 2-0, they will fancy their odds of topping the group.
The head-to-head record is the first tie-breaker for the Euro 2020 qualifying round, which means Turkey would win their group if they pick up six points from their remaining. Defender Çaglar Soyuncu has been in excellent form for Leicester and will be tasked with shutting out Iceland on Thursday.
