Squad Comparison

Portugal

Portugal fans cannot forget the name Aleksandar Mitrovic quickly enough, as with the Euro 2016 champions and Serbia level pegging at 1-1 in their final group encounter, the Fulham forward dramatically headed home in the 90th minute to send his side into the finals. A goalless stalemate with the Republic of Ireland three days before that 2-1 defeat also proved costly in Portugal’s bid to secure a simple route to Qatar, with Santos’s side now at a real risk of failing to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1998.

A potential meeting with Italy in the playoff final could follow for Portugal – assuming that the European champions can navigate their way past North Macedonia in the other Path C semi-final – meaning that at least one of the two European heavyweights will be watching on from home later this year. A record of 17 points and a +11 goal difference means that Portugal boasts the best group record out of any UEFA nation in the playoffs, but defeat to Serbia at the Estadio da Luz marked their first home loss in World Cup Qualifying since 2008.

Portugal Playing XI

Patricio; Cedric, Fonte, Inacio, Guerreiro; Moutinho, Pereira, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Jota

Turkey

Despite taking maximum points from their final three fixtures in the group phase, it was too little too late for Turkey to pip the Netherlands to the top spot in Group G, as Stefan Kuntz’s side sought just a third-ever appearance at the World Cup finals. Since crashing out of Euro 2020 without a single point to their name, the Crescent-Stars have only suffered one defeat in seven games since – although it was a 6-1 humbling at the hands of the Dutch – and they marched to successive wins over Latvia, Gibraltar and Montenegro to round off Group G.

Not since collecting bronze medals at the 2002 tournament have Turkey plied their trade in the World Cup finals, and Kuntz’s side is facing an uphill battle to end that agonizing 20-year wait here, with the talent in their ranks not exactly gelling on a consistent basis. Furthermore, only the hapless Gibraltar (43) conceded more goals than Turkey (16) in Group G, although they have found the back of the net in every one of their World Cup 2022 Qualifying games so far and may fancy their chances against a depleted Portuguese defense.

Turkey Playing XI

Cakir; Celik, Soyuncu, Demiral, Erkin; Under, Calhanoglu, Antalyali, Akturoglu; Yilmaz, Yazici

Match Prediction for Portugal vs Turkey

While Turkey will take confidence from their recent spate of victories, they have all been against sides whom they would have expected to beat, and one European superpower in the Netherlands simply tore them apart last year. Turkey, on the other hand, boasts some interesting players. Leicester City center-back Caglar Soyuncu has endured a poor season at club level, while striker Burak Yilmaz is clearly slowing down now. However, Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has impressed this season and could be key.

Portugal’s depleted defense is there to be exposed by Kuntz’s side, and a tasty affair with plenty of goals on the menu is likely, but the hosts have plenty of attacking stars on form for their respective clubs and should edge a close contest to make the playoff final. Portugal is struggling under Fernando Santos’ management. Their World Cup hopes to hang by a thread, and it is still not clear what Portugal’s best XI is. Portugal has an extremely talented squad, but they might need to move past Santos, and potentially even Cristiano Ronaldo, to unlock the potential of young stars like Joao Felix and Rafael Leao.

 Portugal 3-2 Turkey, as predicted by us.
