Keep the Turks on side in Malaga
Turkey smashed four goals past the Dutch in Istanbul on Wednesday evening and Senol Gunes’ side can take early control of Group G with a victory over Norway at La Rosaleda this weekend.
This fixture was switched to Malaga on account of Norway’s COVID-19 quarantine restrictions and the Turks look overpriced to seal another three points based on the venue change and their superb midweek performance.
Lille’s prolific marksman Buruk Yilmaz blasted a magnificent hat-trick to spearhead a 4-2 victory against Frank De Boer’s men and made a mockery of the Netherlands’ skinny odds to top the section.
Turkey were poor in last season’s Nations League and were relegated to the third tier after just one win in six, though it’s fair to say that they were probably paying the price for their fine Euro 2020 qualifying effort.
They took four points from world champions France in that campaign which is a further measure of their quality and potential, and after just one defeat in eight, they could have a little bit too much steel and class here for a Norway side who generally misfired against minnows Gibraltar in midweek, despite a 0-3 win on the rock.
