Euro 2020 Is being staged across 12 different cities which has enabled some nations to play all their matches at home. This applies to Italy who will be playing all three of their group games at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and this immediately hands them an advantage. The Italians do not always play their home qualifying games or friendlies at the same venue but wherever they play in Italy, they are always very difficult to beat.
First of all, all the teams that made it here are successful. Italy didn't lose in the qualifiers. Although Italy are the favourites, we are also strong, I think. I hope that the games will be great. We want to win and progress through the group. Being in this tournament and playing in the opening match makes us proud. In every opening game there are surprises and I hope we can also spring one. - Senol Gunes after the groups were drawn, UEFA official website

3. Italy vs Turkey Betting Predictions
Italy found their goalscoring touch at home during the 2020 European Championship qualifying campaign. The Italians scored 2 goals or more in each of their 5 home matches including a 6-0 win over Liechtenstein and 9-0 win over Armenia. Roberto Mancini seems to have the Italians playing a better range of attacking football than we have seen in recent years and will be hoping this translates itself into the tournament.
Our Turkey vs Italy tips believe Italy will score 1 goal in this game, although 1 goal may not seem like a significant number but it is important to pay attention to the defensive record of Turkey during the qualifiers. The Turks only conceded 3 goals across their 10 matches in a group which included France and Iceland. That's a tremendous record and Turkey will be banking on their defence to give them a solid platform in this game.
As it is an opening match for Euro 2020 / 2021, it for sure will be available to watch on TV in every country. However, if you don't have access to television, you don't have to worry as there are other Italy vs Turkey live stream options.
