As Turkey clashes with Italy in the Euro 2020 opening match, who's got the better guns?

Friday Night marks the end of a long wait for the Euro 2020 tournament.

The opener match features teams from Group A – Turkey and Italy. Though the Italians are the clear group favourites, it’s certainly not a walk in the park.

Turkey, Wales and Switzerland are seeking to disrupt the status quo to claim the top position.

In every tournament, the opener game is always a difficult affair, and with both Italy and Turkey flouting an excellent form, it’s not far fetched to expect a draw.

A barren draw is feasible, especially in the first half – or, it’s also possible for both teams to score.

The Turkish and Italian teams have both scored in each of their last four encounters.

For Turkey, they have found the back of the net in 3 of their last 6 international matches. Italy has an impressive record of scoring goals in their last 9 outings.

All these point to a very tight encounter in the Friday clash.

Turkey and Italy’s last 2 meetings have both ended in draws. It’s forgivable to assume the two teams will cancel each other out.

Turkey comes into the Euro, with their favourite 4-5-1 lineup. It’s a very optimistic set up with players like Burak Yilmaz and Zeki Celik fresh off league-winning campaigns with Lille and plenty of ingenious talent and speed in the Serie A duo of Hakan Calhanoglu and Merih Demiral.

Italy seeks to counter that under their talismanic manager Roberto Mancini, who shows preference for a fuller midfield and striker setup as a single unit with the 4-3-3 lineup.

Upfront, Italy presents the lethal striking trio of Insigne, Immobile and Berardi whose chemistry will be put to the test.
