Our prediction for this Nations League match:
There will be fireworks when Turkey and Serbia go head to head at Turk Telekom Stadyumu in the Nations League round 4. Both teams aim to keep their promotion hopes to League A alive, and, no doubt, a lively contest is on the horizon. Turkey aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions, and we are positive that they are going to find the net in Wednesday’s football match.
The Serbs, on the other hand, did well to eliminate Norway in the Euro 2021 playoffs semis, but the team then suffered a shocking loss to Hungary in the Nations League. Ljubisa Tumbakovic rested several first-team regulars against Hungary, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Turkey. Seeing that both Aleksandar Mitrovic and Aleksandar Kolarov to the starting XI, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Pacey winger Filip Kostic remains in the recovery room for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Hakan Calhanoglu):
Hakan Calhanoglu is another one in the long line of Turkish footballers who were born in Germany, so it is hardly surprising he came to prominence thanks to his performances in Bundesliga. The attacking midfielder with great vision and very good goalscoring record started his professional career at Karlsruher, scoring impressive 17 goals in 50 league outings to earn a move to Bundesliga side Hamburg.
The spell at Imtech Arena was merely a stepping stone for bigger things as 11 goals in his debut top flight campaign persuaded Bayer Leverkusen to splash nearly €15 million on his services. That proved a very good investment as Calhanoglu continued the rich vein of form, and it is now a matter of time before he joins one of European powerhouses.
The midfield maestro had a bright start to his career in the Turkey national team, scoring 5 goals in first 16 caps, and chances are he will become a leader for Milli Takim in the foreseeable future.
Highlighted Team (Serbia):
Serbia have been playing as an independent nation since 2006. The Serbs made it to the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals and despite defeating star-studded Germany in the group stages of the showpiece tournament in South Africa, they eventually failed to book their place in the last 16. The Eagles, though, failed to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil as they experienced all sorts of problems in their qualifying group.
A number of top-class footballers played for Serbia and former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is regarded as one of the best players in the history of the Serbian national team. Vidic scored two goals in 56 appearances for Serbia and he announced his retirement from the national team on 24 October, 2011.
The Eagles play their home game at Stadion Rajko Mitic and it has to be noted that they defeated Czech Republic 3-1 in their first international game under the name of Serbia. Serbia play their home games in red shirts and red shorts, while the colour of their away kit is white.
