      Tip Reasoning

      Turkey began their qualification campaign rather badly, losing against Iceland and Czech Republic in their first two games before drawing away to Latvia.

      But since then they’ve turned a new leaf, winning four of their last six games and drawing twice. One of these draws was away from home against Sunday’s opposition, with the other coming in midweek against Latvia again.

      This leaves them in 4th position in Group A, but they are just one point behind 3rd placed Netherlands. This means that a win for Turkey could send them into a playoff position for the finals next summer.

      There has never been a better time to go for the jugular against the Dutch either, they are in poor form and are serious considering the possibility of failing to qualify for the European Championships for the first time since 1986.

      Turkey really should have overtaken their opponents on Thursday, but a last minute lapse in concentration allowed Latvia to score a 90th minute equaliser.

      Netherlands continued their poor form in qualifying when they hosted Group A leaders Iceland on Thursday.

      A second half penalty from Gylfi Sigurdsson was enough to give the leaders the three points and further pile the pressure on the disappointing Netherlands squad.

      This makes it three wins, three losses, and a draw for Netherlands in this campaign, leaving them with 10 points.

      They are six points adrift of the 2nd placed Czech Republic, and will now be focusing on maintaining their playoff position for the remaining three matches.

      This is a tough match to call, as the Netherlands still have the quality to beat anyone when they turn up. The problem is that they haven’t turned up very often recently, and I think a hostile Turkish crowd could get the better of them on Sunday.

      Odds of 7/10 for a Turkey Win or Draw Double Chance look like good value as well, and it still astounds us how the bookies favour the Dutch seem so much after their multitude of lacklustre performances.
