Italy inaugurates Euro 2020 against Turkey at the Olimpico in Rome: everything about the match, from the formations to where to see it on TV and streaming.
Let’s go. Touch to Mancini’s Italy kick off the Europeans in the opening match against Turkey, which is played at the ‘Olimpico’ stadium in Rome.
The match is valid for the first day of Group A of Euro 2020 in which, in addition to Italy and Turkey, Wales and Switzerland are also included and face each other on Saturday 12 June at 15.00.
For the occasion, after many months without fans, the ‘Olimpico’ stadium will be able to host around 16,000 spectators in the stands, equal to 25% of the capacity of the facility.
Chosen by Goal
Italy qualified for the European Championships by easily winning their group with 27 points ahead of Finland, Greece, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Armenia and Liechtenstein.
Turkey, on the other hand, finished second in Group H with 23 points behind France, but ahead of Iceland, Albania, Andorra and Moldova.
The Azzurri arrive at the European Championships with high expectations, given that they have not lost a match for almost three years when in September 2018 they were defeated 1-0 by Portugal in the Nations League.
Turkey, coached by coach Şenol Güneş, as well as the bomber Burak Yilmaz fresh from the title of French Champion won by surprise with Lille, are betting heavily on the ‘Italians’ Demiral and Calhanoglu. Without forgetting of course Er Roma Cengiz Under.

POSSIBLE TURKEY-ITALY FORMATIONS
Gunes should field Turkey with a 4-1-4-1 in which Demiral will team up with Söyüncü, while Yokuslu will act in front of the defense. The only striker will be Burak Yilmaz, behind him Karaman, Yazici, Tufan and the Milan player Calhanoglu.
There are few doubts of formation for Mancini who will field Italy with the now classic 4-3-3: in front of Donnarumma the couple Bonucci-Chiellini, Florenzi and Spinazzola will be the two full backs. In midfield together with Jorginho and Barella there will be Locatelli in place of Verratti, who is not yet at his best. In attack the only real ballot between Berardi (favorite) and Federico Chiesa, sure of the place Insigne and Ciro Immobile.
TURCHIA (4-1-4-1): Cakir; Celik, Soyuncu, Demiral, Meras; Yokuslu; Karaman, Yazici, Tufan, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz.
ITALY (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne.
