Tip Turkey - Albania
Turkey are currently leading the way in Group H, as they chase a place at Euro 2020. They were able to beat France at home to put themselves in a strong position in the fight to make the tournament. With just four matches left, they need to build on that in the next month. This week’s home meeting with Albania could push Turkey to the verge of the tournament or blow their hopes altogether. The hosts are in fine form coming into this one. They have won seven of their last eight matches, with five wins in six group games. They have conceded just twice across this group so far, so they will expect to pull off a decent result at home to an Albania side who are struggling to compete in this pool.
With the hosts on form, are they set for another victory? Albania don’t look capable of stopping the hosts, especially given that they’ve been patchy throughout this group. The visitors were at Euro 2016 in France, but they are unlikely to make a mark on the coming tournament. They are on nine points, six shy of the top three with four games to play. They face this tough trip, which could knock them out of the running. The bookies seem convinced that Turkey are on course for another victory, as the hosts are heavy favourites. Their winning run is convincing, while they’ve won their last five at home. In that time, Turkey have racked up 11 goals. They are in excellent shape at the back, but up front they’ve managed to score 14 times in just four group games.
Key points Turkey - Albania
Turkey are current leaders in the group.
Albania don’t look capable of stopping the hosts
We are backing Turkey to win over 1.5 goals.
Conclusion Turkey - Albania
We expect them to add to that fine run against a poor Albania side. The visitors have lost four of their last five trips, including back to back 2-0 defeats on the road in the Nations League. They are conceding too many goals, while Turkey are in fine form up top. We are backing over 1.5 Turkey goals here, which is well priced following their great run of results at home.
