Team News

The notable absence for Czech Republic is Patrik Schick, who became his country's all-time top scorer at the European Championship with his goal against Georgia, but he's expected to miss this game with a calf problem.

Little else is expected to change, with West Ham United duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal playing influential roles in Ivan Hasek's side.

As for Turkey, Vincenzo Montella will hope to welcome Mert Gunok back into the first-team fold having missed the defeat to Portugal with a knee injury, while Arda Guler is expected to start after a minor groin injury restricted him to a cameo role on Saturday.

Czech Republic are 8/5 to claim victory against Turkey, giving them an implied win probability of 38.5%, while their opponents are 7/4, or a 36.4% chance.

The draw is available at 12/5, and both teams to score can be backed at 4/6.

Both teams to score and under 2.5 goals @ 5/1

Both teams have scored in each of Czech Republic’s last six games and they are in need of a win if they want to qualify for the knockout stages, while Turkey have shipped 12 goals in their last five games and have just one clean sheet in their last eight outings.

The Czechs could be lacking firepower up top if Schick is absent, and I can see them rueing some missed chances come the end of the 90 minutes. In addition,  there's nothing to split the teams - these two nations have met 11 times before and it's honours even, with five wins apiece and one draw.

BTTS and under 2.5 goals at 5-1

Over 9.5 corners @ 5/6

With both teams needing a result, I can see plenty of action at both ends of the pitch.

Turkey won nine corners in their loss to Portugal, while the Czechs racked up 11 against Georgia. That suggests we should see plenty of flag kicks here and I'm opting for the over on the corners market, which pays 5/6.

Over 9.5 corners at 5-6

Correct Score - 1-1 Draw @ 11/2

If I was to predict a scoreline for this match, I'm inclined to go for a 1-1 draw.

As mentioned above, I think both teams will get on the scoresheet as that bet has landed in each of Czech Republic’s last six matches and Turkey have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight assignments, so attempting to hold out for a goalless draw is unlikely to work for Montella’s men.

I think the potential absence of Schick will hinder Hasek's side majorly, but Turkey have also shown that they're fragile at the back themselves.
