Turkey vs Croatia by Lloyds
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.
