Czech Republic v Turkey Prediction, Tips and Odds: Czechs to bounce into last 16

Second place in Euros Group F is up for grabs as Czech Republic meet Turkey at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg on Wednesday and the Czechs can claim a crucial victory.

There's plenty at stake on the final night of Group F, with Turkey on three points and Czech Republic and Georgia on one.

Czech Republic to win - 31/20

Czech Republic are yet to win at Euro 2024, but their first two performances have arguably deserved more than just one point and they are capable of picking up a huge win against Turkey in their final Group F fixture.

The Czechs' mission has been made even more difficult by an injury to star striker Patrik Schick, who picked up a calf problem in the 1-1 draw with Georgia, but they still have enough quality in their squad to get the better of Turkey and it's not a surprise that they are favourites to win in Hamburg.

Ivan Hasek's team were on the brink of an excellent result against group favourites Portugal in their opening match, taking the lead through Lukas Provod before being undone by an own goal by Robin Hranac and a winner from Portugal's Francisco Conceicao deep into added time.

There was more frustration for the Czechs in their second game against Georgia as they dominated the match, firing in 27 shots on goal and producing a healthy expected-goals figure of 3.07, only to be held to a 1-1 draw.

Even with Schick's unfortunately timed injury, Czech Republic still have a clear path to the last-16 and will secure second place in the group if they win their finale, barring an upset by Georgia against Portugal.

In that case the placings would go down to goal difference due to the teams' head-to-head draws.

Turkey would be delighted with a point which would give them the runners-up spot, but their defensive shortcomings mean that sitting back would be a risky strategy.

The Turks beat Georgia 3-1 thanks to a late breakaway goal into an empty net, but were no match for Portugal in their second game, losing 3-0.

They will be aiming to repeat their European Championship wins over the Czechs in 2008 and 2016 but could struggle this time around.

Over 2.5 goals - 10/11

Turkey have already scored three goals once and conceded three goals once in their two outings in Germany, while Czech Republic's 1-1 draw with Georgia was the first in their last seven games to go under 2.5 goals.

Turkey have posted only four clean sheets in their last 20 matches and they are no strangers to an end-to-end battle with lively affairs against Germany (3-2), Latvia (4-0) Japan (2-4) and Austria (1-6) on their record over the last year.

Both teams have scored in Czechia's last six matches and with Turkey defender Abdulkerim Bardakci suspended for being cautioned twice already this could turn into a lively encounter.

Bet Builder - Both Teams To Score - Yes, Tomas Soucek over 0.5 shots, Ladislav Krejci to be booked - 9/2

For a three-leg Bet Builder wager on the Czech Republic v Turkey game, let's start by taking both teams to score.

Czech Republic have scored only twice so far, but they have been creating plenty of opportunities and could have more success in front of goal against a reshuffled Turkey defence that conceded three goals to Portugal last time out.

The Czechs will have to throw caution to the wind unless they get into a comfortable early lead and that could leave them vulnerable to speedy counter-attacks which Turkey have already shown they are capable of.

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek could be pushed into a more advanced role in the final group game to make up for the absence of Schick and he is fancied to take a crack at goal at some stage.

Soucek has had only one attempt so far in the tournament, but has scored three goals for his country this season and can be relied upon for maximum effort in this must-win encounter.

Complete the bet with Czech defender Ladislav Krejci to to be booked.

Krejci was not one of the eight players to receive a yellow card in his team's match against Georgia, but the centre-back, who recently left Sparta Prague to join Girona, was sent off three times in the Czech league in the season that just ended.
