Who is playing at Euro 2021 today? 11 June: games, times, TV, schedule
Here's all the information you need to know on how and where to watch Euro 2020's opening game between Turkey and Italy at Stadio Olimpico on 11 May.
Euro 2020 is finally here. Italy will be hosting Turkey at Stadio Olimpico in the first match of the competition after a year-long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The four-time world champions, currently on an eight-game winning streak -including pre-tournament friendlies-, will try to take advantage of playing on home soil and will look to use their experience to beat Senol Günes’ men, the youngest squad in the tournament, with an average age of just under 25 years.
The Italian experience against the Turkish youth
Italy, that haven’t been crowned as European champions since their last success back in 1968, are the clear Group A favorites to qualify for the next round and are considered one of the national teams with the most chances of lifting the trophy.
With Roberto Mancini as head coach, Italy have eased to qualification for both the European championship and the semi-finals of the Nations League. Moreover, they have extended their unbeaten home record in World Cup qualifiers to 56 games.
However, Turkey, quarter-finalists in 2000 and then surprise contestants in the final four of the 2008 tournament, won’t be an easy opponent for the Italian squad, as they have only lost three times in their 26 matches since Günes stepped back into one of the hottest of hotseats.
