Analysis of Turkey
The home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against France by (2‑0). In the last round, they have lost an away match against Iceland by (2‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. Turkey has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 1 of the last 4 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 12 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 6 of their 16 goals between minutes (46’‑60′).
Equilibrium has prevailed in the group where Turkey is, so there is no margin for error. As such they will go to the field determined to win and anything other than the three points will be considered bad. Playing at home and against a weaker team ends turns Turkey into the favorite, and they want to turn such favoritism into a score in their favor. If they can play with attitude and efficiency they can win without much trouble and that would go down very well at a time like this. In this match the best players available will be on the field.
Analysis of Andorra
The away team is currently in the 6th position, no points won yet, after 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Moldova by (1‑0). In the last round, they have lost a home match against France by (0‑4). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses in away matches, with 3 goals scored and 33 conceded; against 1 win, 6 draws and 8 losses at their stadium, with 4 goals scored and 18 conceded. In the last 6 away matches Andorra has won 1, tied 1 and lost 4.
In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 losses in the last matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in the last 4 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had problems scoring first, since they have only opened up the score once in the last 15 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around.
The weak campaign presented by Andorra has indicated that it will hardly get a place in the next Euro. Besides the poor performances another factor that influences a lot is having stronger opponents. Of course they don’t want to give in and will still fight for something better, but they know that changes must come. If they want to at least improve their season they have to play with quality, determination and objectivity, always minimizing mistakes. In this match the best players available will be on the field.
