Turkey vs Moldova Prediction & Betting tips
The Turkish national team started successfully in the European Championship qualification. After the recent change of coach, the eyes were on Senol Günes, who celebrated his coaching debut a 2-0 victory over the Albanian national team. Although the performance was not really convincing, but it was enough in the end for the comfortable away win over harmless Albanians. In the second group match, the Turks now want to land a home win over Moldova. In Turkey vs. Moldova are the hosts according to odds in the clear favorite role, whether a bet pays off for a significant victory, but remains questionable.
The Turks did not look good against Albania, but the result is right, giving the Turks a lot of confidence. With Albania, a direct competitor was defeated to the second rank, which entitles to participate in the EM 2020. So that also between Turkey vs. Moldova has a prognosis on the Günes Elf true, much more must be done. The guests started as expected with a defeat to France and do not really have big ambitions in the group. Also in the second group game does not speak much for a point gain of Moldova in Turkey. Can the guests teach us otherwise, or do we see a routine home victory for the Turkish national team? On Monday evening, the duel of the two teams rises at 17:00 clock in Eskisehir.
Senol Günes could not have wished for a better coaching position in the Turkish national team. Actually Günes should have taken over the national team only in summer, but the union Günes wanted to qualify already in office. On Monday evening, the coach wants to do the homework after the away win over Albania and now book the next three points. The Turks did not bid much against Albania and were fortunate to have scored twice with three goals. The offensive performance was too weak, but it has voted in the back row. After 380 minutes without scoring the two goals against Albania were a real blessing.
Senol Günes is undoubtedly one of the most successful Turkish coaches and has already worked for the Turkish national team. With a score of 23-13-14 Günes has a victory rate of 46%. The victory over Albania also ended the series of four internationals without success. In front of their home crowd, the Turks have been waiting for four games to win. Since May 2018, no home game could be won.
Burak Yilmaz scored his 24th goal in his 53rd international match and ended his tally. Since June 2017, Yilmaz had scored no goal for the Turkish national team. Although the offensive performance was a bit poor, probably changes to Moldova will be missing. With Cengiz Ünder missing a major winger anyway injured and was therefore not nominated for the squad. Calhanoglu, Yilmaz and Tosun are therefore the best offensive options. Emre Belözoglu was appointed under Senol Günes for the first time for quite some time back in the squad of the national team. The Turks can benefit greatly from his experience. In the game against Moldova, the Turkish national team behind back should hardly burn anything. If something more is done offensively, it should be against Turkey. Moldova made a prediction in favor of the home side without any problems.
The Moldovan national team is among the underdogs in the group. Even a placement among the top four teams in the group would be a surprise. With Andorra together will probably be tried to avoid the last group place. Already in the first group match, there was a 1: 4 pack of the French. Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Moldova has never managed to qualify for a major competition anyway. Moldova has a 5-12-41 record in World Cup qualifiers, while the European Championship qualifiers have a total score of 11-9-39. In 59 qualifying games Moldova scored 52 goals and conceded a total of 118 goals. Even the recent internationals of Moldova show that not much can be expected of the Moldovan national team. Coach Alexandru Spiridon will gratefully accept every little success. Since the beginning of 2017, Moldova has only been able to win in international matches, be it tests or qualifiers, against San Marino. With solid defensive achievements, although in the meantime some teams drew a draw, in the end the game of the Spiridon-Elf was manageable.
Alexandru Epureanu is the most experienced player in the current national squad. With 91 missions and eight goals, the defensive player is also the captain of the team. Epureanu himself kicks in the Turkish league at the current championship leader Basaksehir. Well-known players are searched in vain in the Moldovan squad. Only Damascan (Torino) and Ionita (Cagliari) play in Europe’s top leagues. Offensively, the Moldovan team does not have much to offer anyway. Moldova have just scored twice in their last eleven games on foreign soil. Lastly, the team of Spiridon succeeded although a lucky goal against the French, but whether it will also be enough against the Turks, remains uncertain.
