Match Preview

Turkey enters Euro 2024 with the goal of advancing past the group stage for the first time since their semi-final appearance in 2008. Despite being eliminated in the group stages of the last two tournaments, Turkey showed strong form in the qualifiers, topping Group D ahead of Croatia with 17 points from eight matches. However, recent results have been less encouraging, including a 2-1 defeat to Poland and no victories in their last five games. 

The team has been hit by injuries, losing key players like Enes Unal, Caglar Soyuncu, and Ozan Kabak. Nevertheless, with talents such as Kerem Akturkoglu, Juventus' Kenan Yildiz, and captain Hakan Calhanoglu, Turkey remains optimistic about their chances, particularly in their opening match against Georgia.

For Georgia, this match marks a historic moment as they compete in a major tournament for the first time. The team secured their spot by beating Greece on penalties in the playoffs and managed a 3-1 friendly win against Montenegro in their only match since then. 

While preparation might seem limited, Georgia’s fixture schedule could be advantageous, potentially facing a Portugal side resting key players by matchday three. Key player Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, along with notable figures like goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili and forward Georges Mikautadze, highlight the talent in their squad. Georgia hopes to leverage this talent to surprise their opponents and make a memorable debut in Euro 2024.
