Turkey vs Croatia by Lloyds

Croatia will play Turkey on its EURO 2016 opener, at Parc des Princes. The Blazers will have a chance to make a statement as many predict them to be a dark horse of this tournament. They always displayed good performances on the big championships and they do certainly posses a character of a great football nation. Needless to say that Croatia's squad is pretty stacked on most positions on the field, which is why I believe they should edge the Turks for the 3 points today.


The lineup for the Croats is mostly revealed, as Juventus Mario Mandzukic will start up front, in the attack. Behind him a "tridente" of Perisic-Kalinic-Brozovic is expected, while Real's Luka Modric is going to be commanding the midfield, along with Milan Badelj. This formation has seen a lot of success in the qualifiers for Croatia, but one player I expect to make a significant impact today is Perisic. He had a good season for his club, although the same cannot be said for Inter, but even better qualifiers for Croatia as he was the nation's leading scorer with 6 goals in 9 appearances. He is causing defenses a lot of problems with his versatility, as he is able to play either on the right or left wing.


Turkey managed to get past the Dutch in the qualifiers and secure EURO place as the best 3rd ranked team. However, I am not very impressed by how they play recently as the squad lacks creativity, thus the goal chances.


I believe Croatia are going to win this one and avenge that painful 2008 Euro loss, at the hands of Turkey, who are a completely different squad right now. The Croats are full of stars, ready to skyrocket even more and are ought to deliver a good result on this tournament.

the pick needs to be corrected, because there is no chance to play something like this on bet365, the correct one is "Croatia wins & Perisic to score FIRST" for 9x money
