We had an abundance of reasons to like Turkey as another sleeper team in this tournament. In this contest against Croatia, the Turkish offer tremendous upside but we once again feel inclined to stay clear of a position in this fixture. Turkey owns some impressive wins to bolster their resume, boasting victories over fellow qualifiers Czech Republic, Austria and Sweden. In their last six outings, the Turks have just one loss and they complement their exceptional form with a top-fifteen ranking in the FIFA World Rankings. As for Croatia, they sit in a top-twenty five position in the aforementioned FIFA rankings, but their recent spout of winning five of their last six fixtures while remaining unbeaten has stirred a frenzy. Many pundits are also quite found of the Croatians because of the simple fact they made a run to the semifinals in the 2012 EURO. The Croatians would continue to boast their success on the pitch by qualifying in the 2014 World Cup and giving Brazil a harrowing fight in the opening match. Croatia by no stretch is starstruck by this big stage but given their current stock after a slew of charted performances the expectation of victory is through the ceiling. This notion is further driven by Croatia’s most recent 10-0 destruction of San Marino in an international friendly. However, this is the one realm where there may be some over inflated odds…by virtue of the fact Croatia has tuned up pipsqueaks. In Croatia’s recent table of victories, the victims include Israel, Malta and Moldova, teams that we are certainly not going to shutter at. As for Turkey, this is a squad that has just one loss against England in their last six fixtures and while England may be prone to let-downs, they are certainly more formidable than any of the three sides mentioned. With this being established, Croatia may be due for attrition. At the very same token, we have to consider the fact that Turkey is not a typical squad you see in the EURO mix. However, Turkey has been commendable up to this point and they certainly have the ability to threaten Croatia, the concern is whether the tournament environment will get the best of the Turkish. With this being said, the outcome of this game remains nebulous. We are unsure of what Croatia team will show up against Turkey and how Turkey will fare against a perceived European heavyweight. The Croatians have the guns, they have Modric, Rakitic and Mandruzic but that is still not enough to sell us this team for the win at just above evens. At the same token, Croatia is certainly prone for a disappointment but the buyback on Turkey and even the draw is not a convincing enough price to opt in. This contest will be a litmus test to determine the true colors of either side and from this fixture we will figure out what we need to know about both Croatia and Turkey. This is one is a great no play. For latest odds you can check a few recommended sportsbooks and betting exchanges
