Match Preview

Two consecutive victories ‘to nil’, along with winning at half-time in each after scoring the opener within the first 25 minutes, sees Turkey (FIFA ranked #39) in good form going into this friendly clash against Greece (#43). However, the Turks are winless in their last four international matches against teams ranked in the top 45 (D2, L2).
In fact, Turkey have failed to score in three of their last four matches on home soil, although they did register a clean sheet in three of those games (W1, D2, L1). When they do manage to score and find victory it’s usually tight though, with seven of their last eight friendly victories (at all venues) arriving by a single-goal margin.
Greece travel over the Aegean Sea having lost three of their last four international friendlies (W1, L3), with under 2.5 goals and only one side scoring in each of those four games. The eventual winner was 1-0 up at half-time in three of those matches though, so another early goal could be expected.
Unbeaten in three of their last five road trips (W2, D1, L2 – in all competitions), Greece will feel they can get a result here, although both victories during that period were over lowly Estonia (#96) and Liechtenstein (#182).
Players to watchCenk Tosun netted a brace in Turkey’s recent Euro qualifier. He’s scored three goals across his last four friendly appearances.
Olympiakos man Konstantinos Fortounis has scored Greece’s first goal in their last two away matches.
Stat attack: While both teams haven’t scored in each of Turkey’s last six matches, both teams have scored in four of their last six friendly games.
Only one half has featured goals in six of Greece’s last eight fixtures.
Four of the last five H2Hs featured under 1.5 goals. Three of those meetings ended goalless, all five involved a draw at half-time.
