With Gunes' men looking strong in defence, Al Hain-Cole is backing them to frustrate Les Bleus in a tight game at the Konya Buyuksehir Stadium

Both Turkey and France will be looking to protect 100 per cent records when they meet at the Konya Buyuksehir Stadium in Saturday's Euro 2020 qualifier.

Senol Gunes has made a perfect start to his second stint in charge of the national team, adding friendly victories over Greece and Uzbekistan to qualification wins over Albania and Moldova.

Having suffered a 3-2 semi-final defeat against this opposition in the 2003 Confederations Cup, the veteran manager is priced at 5/1 (6.00) with SportPesa to exact revenge with a shock victory here.

Top of Group H on goal difference, Les Bleus are 10/19 (1.53) favourites to move three points clear at the top with big away win in Konya.

Just one of the hosts' last 10 competitive home games has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them grinding out an impressive stalemate in this one.

Team news

Celta Vigo midfielder Okay Yokuslu has been ruled out after the knee injury that kept him out of last week's win over Uzbekistan proved more serious than anticipated.

Kylian Mbappe is fit to play despite going off injured in Sunday's 2-0 friendly win over Bolivia, while Clement Lenglet is also available to make his senior debut after missing that game due to an infection.

Preview

The foundation for Gunes’ success since his return has been a backline that has conceded just once in four games, extending the Crescent Stars’ defensive record to four goals in eight fixtures.

While they will therefore back themselves to frustrate Didier Deschamps’ men, they are likely to struggle at the other end of the pitch against a defence that has also only let in one goal in four matches.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 20/27 (1.74) are well worth backing on Turkey ensuring under 2.5 goals for their seventh game in nine.
