Italy v Turkey Match Betting (1x2)

On 12 June 2021, the stage will be set for the beginning of the 2020 European Championship and it will be the Stadio Olimpico which plays host to the first game of the tournament.

That means that Italy will have home advantage in their own capital city, with the bookies making them odds-on to land three points in Group A which would go a long way to ensuring that they go deep in this tournament.

William Hill make Roberto Mancini’s men an 8/15 chance and that is sure to be a warm order when it comes to Euro 2020 accumulators, with Italy having qualified in style and they look a good deal more attack-minded than has been the case in previous years.

It’s always wise to tread carefully when it comes to the opening match. There will have been plenty of hype building up to this encounter and there is also plenty of expectation when it comes to the Azzurri who actually missed out on the 2018 World Cup.

In addition, Turkey are not a team who should be underestimated despite the fact that we’ve not really seen them make an impression in the past few yeas when it comes to an international tournament.

They will be relishing the chance to play in Rome where they’ll operate as underdogs and there could be far worse bets than the 11/2 with BetVictor about the visitors claiming a maximum haul.

Interestingly, Unibet have 19/5 about the game ending all square and it’s an outcome which is surely much more likely to happen than the prices suggest.

After all, the Turks would be delighted to land a point from this encounter and it wouldn’t be the end of the world for Italy considering that they will also welcome Switzerland and Wales to the Stadio Olimpico.

Asian Handicap

For those that think Italy might fluff their lines on the opening night of the Euro 2020 show, there are several opportunities to get with Turkey on the Asian Handicap markets.

For example, those thinking that the Turks can avoid defeat can actually back them at 6/4 with a +0.5 goal start and that means that you would profit if the outcome of the match was either a draw or an away win.

Alternatively, you can back Turkey +1 at 19/20 and that would actually mean a refund if they lost by a single goal to the hosts, an outcome which would actually please Italy to simply oblige by a slender margin.

However, for those thinking that Italy can win by a comfortable margin, you can get 6/4 about the home team off a -1.5 goal handicap and that would mean you need Mancini’s side to win by two goals or more.
