Netherlands vs Turkey by Snake
From the first point of view it seems that these 2 opponents will be the "big teams" in the group and will fight for the top 2 spots.
Netherlands were so bad at the European Championship that t hey didn't even manage to get a single point in their group.
After their terrible perfomence , Louis van Gaal came in charge , replacing former coach - Bert van Marwijk.
New coach , of course made some changes as he state that he will no longer rely on Mark van Bommel and Khalid Boulahrouz.
van Gaal made his debut on 15 August , when Netherlands were crushed by Belgium with 4:2.
From what i've read it seems that in the first matches , van Gaal will play without Rafael van der Vaart, Nigel de Jong, Gregory van der Wiel and Ibrahim Affelay, as he state that " they were too busy lately with their transfers in the past weeks".
The other important thing will be uprfront , where he will have to decide who will start amongst van Persie and Huntelaar.
Van Rhijn, Heitinga, Mathijsen, Willems
Fer, Sneijder, Strootman
Narsingh, Huntelaar, Robben
Turkey didn't played on the Euro championship, but produce very quality friendly games right before the competition - beating Bulgaria 2:0, Portugal 3:1 and Ukraine 2:0.
They lost only to Austria with 2:0 in mid August.
The big miss will be goalkeeper Volkan Demirel who is missing due to injury. Reserve goalkeeper is Sinan Bolat who is also missing so in this game the 3-rd choice goalkepeer Tolga Zengin will start.
Midfielder Sabri Sarioglu is also missing , alongside with Besiktas striker Mustafa Pektemek.
Both teams will want to start well the campaign for WC 2014 and with the serious missings in the both sides ,the seek of a a high scoring match seems reasonable bet here.
