Turkey vs Serbia Prediction & Betting tips
The Turkish national team had no win in the first half of this year’s UEFA Nations League. With five points behind leaders Russia, Ay-Yildizlilar’s hopes for promotion have meanwhile dwindled significantly. Last weekend there was only one draw in the direct duel against the Russians.
The guests from Serbia conceded a home bankruptcy against Hungary last weekend. In order to avoid relegation from League B, the Serbian national team is under pressure in the fourth group game. The Orlovi’s bad shape is underlined by Turkey vs. Serbia rather a forecast against the guests.
Turkey will play the home game against the Serbs at the Türk Telekom Stadium in Galatasaray. Since the match, like all other games in the UEFA Nations League, takes place in front of empty stands, the otherwise so special home advantage of the Turks should not be overrated.
Match point awarded – this is roughly how the most recent away game of the Turkish national team in Russia can be described. After falling behind at half-time, Turkey equalized at the beginning of the second half and found their way into the match better and better as the game progressed. Despite great offensive efforts and numerous aluminum hits, however, the division of points remained.
The hopes of group victory and thus promotion to League A have dwindled. In order to avoid relegation from the UEFA Nations League – the first relegation was prevented thanks to the new format – Turkey is still dependent on points. If the upcoming home game against Serbia is lost, the Ay-Yildizlilar will slide to the relegation zone.
Almost a month ago there was a goalless away draw in the first round match against Serbia. Although the Turkish national team played in the majority in the second half, the Serbian defensive could not be cracked. In general, Turkey has only scored one goal in the three group games so far.
Jamming on the offensive
In addition, it remains to be seen how Turkey will act after the missed away win in Russia. It is quite possible that the Turks’ lack of motivation is noticeable. National coach Senol Günes will be able to fall back on the same squad on Wednesday evening as in the most recent away game in Moscow. Big changes are not expected in the starting XI.
In the first edition of the UEFA Nations League, the Serbian Orlovi rose to League B. As the results of this year’s Nations League edition show, relegation may now be threatened again. After three games, the Serbs only have one point in their account. In the last three group matches, the Serbian national team is only concerned with staying up.
If the Serbian national team succeeds in an away coup in Turkey on Wednesday evening, the Orlovi will move to a non-relegation position for the time being – until the next international break. Last weekend, Serbia conceded a narrow 0-1 defeat at home against the strong Magyars.
Just days before their recent defeat, the Serbian national team beat Norway in the UEFA Nations League play-offs. With the away win in extra time, Orlovi moved into the play-off final, where there is now the chance to buy the ticket for the European Championship 2020 through the back door.
If the win over Norway is counted as a draw in regular time, Serbia has not won the last five competitive games. The Orlovi won an international match for the last time in November 2019. Back then, Serbia prevailed in a match with many goals against Luxembourg (3: 2). Since then, the Balkan footballers have been lagging behind expectations.
In the event of a successful European Championship qualification via the play-offs, Ljubisa Tumbakovic does not have to worry about his bad vita. After all, the match against Norway last week had top priority. The 68-year-old Serb will still be aware of the current table constellation that the defeat against Hungary cannot be glossed over.
It is therefore all the more important to end the current international break on Wednesday evening and to leave the red zone with an away win in Turkey.
