Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Stadionul Zimbru pits together Moldova and Turkey, who face each other in the Euro 2020 qualifier. The Moldovans have little to play for in this match as they have already suffered four defeats in their qualifying group. The hosts experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Iceland and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the qualifier against Turkey.
The Turks were struggling to break the deadlock in Saturday’s football match against Andorra, but they eventually scored a late goal and picked up all three points from the game. Turkey want this win more than Moldova as they are still in the race for a place at the European Championship finals, therefore, away win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Hakan Calhanoglu.
Highlighted Player (Veaceslav Posmac):
Veaceslav Posmac is a Moldavian footballer who was born in Chisinau on November 7, 1990. The right-footed defender currently plays for Sheriff Tiraspol as a centre-back, but he started his senior career at Stantul Gheorghe. It has to be noted that he played for his home-town club Dacia Chisinau from 2012 to 2017.
Veaceslav Posmac made his Sheriff debut on July 9, 2017 in a 5-0 win over Zaria and he did remarkably well to score on his debut. The 188-cm tall defender plays for Moldova as well and he made his debut for the national team in a 2-1 win over Kyrgyzstan on June 14, 2013.
Veaceslav Posmac scored his first ever goal for Moldova on January 15, 2014in a 2-1 loss to Norway. The Moldavian defender is very good in the air and despite the fact that his main position is centre-back he often scores goals after set-pieces. Veaceslav Posmac wears No. 90 on his shirt.
Highlighted Team (Turkey):
Present on the international stage since 1923, Turkey only started showing some promise during the 70’s, but they had to wait until the turn of the century to place themselves on the map. While they lost all three fixtures at their first ever European Championship finals in 1996, they fared much better four years later, reaching the last eight in Netherlands and Belgium.
Milli Takim were able to build on that result as they went on to reach the podium at the 2002 World Cup finals in South Korea and Japan, while also finishing third at the 2003 Confederations Cup and making it to the semi-finals at the Euro 2008.
Rustu Receber, Hakan Sukur and Emre Belezoglu were important parts of the country’s most successful generation, but the one including Arda Turan, Selcuk Inan, Burak Yilmaz and Hakan Calhanoglu is threatening to surpass their achievements. As the Turkish Super Lig continues the get stronger, the national team follows, and we should expect some big result from Milli Takim in the near future.
