TUR vs AZJ Dream11: Turkey are one of the fancied underdogs ahead of this summer’s European Championships. Their ability to raise their game for bigger occasions or better opponents was evident in the World Cup qualifiers in March whereby the Turks defeated the Netherlands and Norway with stylistic and comfortable ease but fell to a frustrating 1-1 draw against an admittedly slightly improved Latvia. They come up against one of the upcoming hosts of Turkey’s group stage matches in June in Azerbaijan. Azeri football has continued to rise throughout the 2010s both domestically and internationally. They disappointed in their recent qualifying campaigns but have remained frustrating for sides like Slovakia and Croatia.
