Hungary are a very young side and improving, but lack experience and struggle on the road, losing at Norway, Greece and Malta, with a 8-1 goal difference. They might easliy freeze in what is sure to be a red hot atmosphere in Istanbul.

Turkey looked to be coasting to qualification, when they won 4-1 in Greece. However, since then, just 2 points from home games with Norway and Bosnia, plus an away trip to Malta, have left them in shock and in desperate need of a convincing performance this evening. Goals are not a problem, they are averaging 2.57 per game, but a leaky defence, is a concern. This attack minded team should have no problem taking the lead and their young opponents head's might then drop, as they did in a heavy defeat in Oslo, where Turkey have still to go.

This is a huge game for Turkey , which they have to win.

6 points Turkey -1.25 goals 1.72 asian line.

Good Luck.
