Turkey vs Albania Live Stream: Both Turkey and Albania will skip the biggest stage after featuring Euro 2016 in France.
Turkey vs Albania
Date: 13th November 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Antalya Stadyumu (Antalya).
While the Albanians were never going to qualify past the likes of Italy and Spain in their respective group, the Turks clearly disappointed their fans coming only fourth behind Iceland, Croatia and Ukraine.
The Romanian manager Mircea Lucescu had huge issues with Turkish defensive line which allowed as many as five goals in October’s final qualifiers with Iceland and Finland.
He obviously ailed to find the solution a month later as the Crescent-Stars come into this after losing 2-0 to Romania on Thursday evening.
The visitors ended the qualifying group G at the third place in spite of the back-to-back losses to Spain and Italy in October.
This can by no means be regarded as a failure for Christian Panucci’s men who’ll try and boost up the confidence ahead of both Euro 2020 qualifiers and UEFA Nations League.
Turkey vs Albania: Head to head
The two sides have not met each other in 12 years. Turkey lead the H2H tie by a single win ahead of their ninth encounter with the Albanians.
The Crescent-Stars won both of World Cup qualifiers in 2005 without conceding a single goal during the process.
Turkey vs Albania: Prediction
We honestly doubt the hosts will be able to keep their net untouched here given the obvious holes in their back line.
The value has to be with the Albanians who are 1.61 not to lose by two or more in Antalya.
