Turkey – Will Turkey get their Nations League campaign off to a winning start at home?

Stefan Kuntz took over as head coach of the Turkish national team in September last year but has already suffered the first disappointment of his short reign. Having finished second to the Netherlands in the group stage of World Cup qualification, Turkey entered the playoffs where they were beaten by Portugal who would eventually go on to clinch a place at Qatar 2022. Having went two goals down in the first half. Kuntz men rallied and could have equalised in the closing stages only to see Burak Yilmaz miss a penalty.

The challenge now is to dust them down from that low and attempt to get them back on a good run of form not only for this competition, but also the start of Euro 2024 qualifying which begins in September.

Turkey 2-0 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 3 June)
Yilmaz has since retired from international football and it’s now the chance for some of the younger talent to stake their claim as the main source of goals. Enes Unal would appear to be the most likely to be that player. He’s coming off an excellent campaign with club side Getafe, scoring 16 goals in La Liga. He’s no stranger to the international set-up but hasn’t scored for Turkey since November 2019.
The two goals he got against Andorra remain the only he has managed at senior level, as he looks for a 27th cap.

Faroe Islands Preview – Can Faroes upset their hosts and continue good form in this competition?

The Nations League may not be everybody’s favourite but the Faroe Islands have certainly targeted it as an opportunity to win some games and progress themselves. That was evident in the previous campaign when they finished top of their section. They went through the group unbeaten with three wins and three draws, finishing above Malta, Latvia and Andorra.

Their reward for that success is moving up to the third tier of the Nations League which will see them compete against a better standard of opposition but they will be hopeful of being competitive, with Lithuania and Luxembourg making up the other participants in this group.

Swede Hakan Ericsson has been in charge of the Faroes since December 2019 and is overseeing improvement which he hopes to see progress further. Narrow defeats to the likes of Scotland and Israel in World Cup qualification in the last year suggest they are on the right track and this campaign will be another good guide of where they are.

There are a handful of players plying their trade in European leagues. Captain Hallur Hansson plays in Iceland whilst the main goal threat Klaemint Olsen plays in his home nation and has 10 goals in 44 matches for his country.

Turkey vs Faroe Islands Betting Advice

There were two leagues between these nations in the last running of the competition in 2020, but relegation for Turkey along with promotion for the Faroe Islands means they are competing in the same section. It is the home side who are not only big favourites to win the game but also finish top, and move back into the League B. Anything less than a victory here and the pressure will be on Kuntz.

It’s also the first time that these teams will have faced each other in competitive action.


Key Facts –  Turkey vs Faroe Islands Betting Tip

  • Turkey have won only one of their five home matches in this competition
  • The Faroe Islands have drawn three of their last four away games in the Nations League
  • This will be the first competitive meeting between the two countries, who will face each other again in September


With this being the first games for both teams since March, it may well be a case of easing themselves into it – particularly with other games coming in quick succession. Turkey should have enough to get the three points with a minimum of fuss. Take them to win without conceding.
