In their final preparation match ahead of EURO 2020 qualifying, Turkey (FIFA rank: #39) welcome Uzbekistan (#85) for their first ever H2H clash. The hosts have won each of their three games in 2019 so far, scoring at least twice in each (2.67 per match average).
Defensively astute, Turkey have kept three clean sheets from their last five matches on Turkish soil. However, they have lost three of their last five games against nations ranked lower than themselves in home games. Notably, two thirds of Turkey’s home goals in 2019 arrived before half-time.
This will be Uzbekistan’s first outing since finishing third in the China Cup after a 1-0 victory over the host nation. Despite a spirited performance in the Asian Cup which saw them eliminated in the last 16, Uzbekistan have lost four of their last five matches against higher ranked FIFA nations than themselves (W1, L4).
In friendlies alone, Uzbekistan have not won away from home since October 2014 (D3, L6). Furthermore, the visitors have lost four of their last five away friendly games ‘to nil’ with five of the seven goals conceded across those defeats coming before half-time (71.43%).
