Our prediction for this match:
Vodafone Park in Istanbul will host Wednesday’s friendly between Turkey and Croatia. The Turks have yet to record a win in the UEFA Nations League this season, but it has to be noted that they shared the spoils with Russia and Serbia in the previous two group games. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Milan ace Hakan Calhanoglu. Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic will use this game to test as many players as possible, with Lovre Kalinic, Marin Pongracic, Josip Juranovic, Antonio-Mirko Colak, and Toma Basic all receiving their first call-ups.
The good news for the Croats is that Andrej Kramaric has overcome coronavirus. Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic is no longer part of the national team, while Luka Modric is likely to be rested in Wednesday’s friendly. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Turks, who are eager to put an end to their five-game winless run in all competitions.
