Spain vs Turkey Betting Tips and Predictions – Euro 2016

Spain v Turkey betting tips and predictions for their Euro 2016 Group D game taking place on Friday 17th June, kick-off time 8:00pm.

 

Defending Champions Spain look to continue their good start to the tournament as they face Turkey at the Allianz Riviera in Nice on Friday and I have picked out the best three betting tips for my preview.

 

Spain vs Turkey Predictions

 

Spain got off to a winning start in Group D with a 1-0 victory over Czech Republic. It really was like a training session at times for the Spanish, dominating the match and having over 70% possession in that game as the Czechs couldn't cope with the passing and movement of Vicente Del Bosque's men. Still, they had to wait until three minutes before the end to score, Gerard Pique's header giving his side the three points, but it was still an excellent Spanish performance and they'll look for a similar display against Turkey.

 

Fatih Terim and his side lost their first game in a rather tame performance against Croatia. Luka Modric's screamer just before half-time gave Croatia the three points but Turkey never looked like causing their back line problems. It was only when 18-year-old Emre Mor came on as a substitute that Turkey looked dangerous, but it was too little too late as Croatia held on for the win.

 

Mor may start this one after that cameo to give his side some impetus going forward. Captain Arda Turan and Hakan Calhanoglu will both start and will be hoping to put in better performances after their somewhat anonymous displays in the Croatia defeat.

 

Spain could name an unchanged line up for this one, although there is the possibility that Alvaro Morata may be dropped after he failed to make much of an impact against the Czech Republic. David Silva and Cesc Fabregas are likely to continue alongside the imperious Andres Iniesta.

 

Spain of course are huge favourites for this one, with odds of 4/9 reflecting that. The bookies aren't really giving Turkey a prayer, you can get odds of 9/1 for Terim's men to take the three points. I'm with the bookies, a Spain win all the way for my Euro 2016 betting tips. Spain will dominate but, like their first match, I don't think they'll be many goals in this one. My first Spain vs Turkey prediction is Spain to win and under 2.5 goals in the match, the best odds of with SportingBet who are offering 41/20.

 

Turkey didn't exactly get the pulse racing with their display against Croatia, particularly going forward. Even if Emre Mor does start, the only Turkish player who looked like creating anything in their first game, he'll have to get past a well drilled Spanish defence and I can't see Turkey causing David De Gea too many problems. My second Spain vs Turkey betting tip is Spain to win to nil, the best odds are with Bet Victor of 6/5.

My third Spain vs Turkey prediction is a bit of a long shot but I think it's worth a punt. Spain, for all their possession, don't shoot as much as they should, their goal against the Czech's coming from a cross and a centre half up for the corner heading it in. I can see a similar situation occurring here, but instead of Pique I'm picking his centre half partner Sergio Ramos to score anytime. Ramos has a habit of scoring important goals, none less than the recent Champions League Final victory for Real Madrid, and I think at 8/1 with Betfred he's definitely worth a shout to get on the scoresheet.
