Turkey vs Scotland – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Turkey have lost just one of their last seven home matches ahead of their clash with Scotland on Wednesday evening. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.
Turkey to Win
Turkey are generally a reliable force when playing on home soil and they have lost just four times in their last 26 matches there in a lengthy run stretching all the way back to 2018. In addition, Head Coach Stefan Kuntz has selected a youthful squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Scotland and Turkey should have buckets of energy as a result. The Scots have won only five of their last 15 games on their travels and their habit of coming unstuck on the road along with the other factors listed means they are worth opposing here.
Both Teams to Score
Scotland quite often to produce the goods when paying outside their borders, though they do have a knack for impacting the scoresheet even when results don’t go their way. Indeed, they have rattled the net in six of their last nine away fixtures, while Turkey have conceded in 70% of their last ten matches at home. The hosts could ship a consolation on Wednesday, but having lodged 20 goals in their last seven tussles at home themselves, they can be backed with confidence to register. As a result, a stake on both teams to score could be worth pursuing.
