Italy will be the favourites but both sides will be looking to make a positive start to the Euros.

Anytime Goal Scorers
Turkey- Burak Yilmaz- The experience of the 35-year-old will be vital in determining whether Turkey will succeed in penetrating the stubborn Italian defence.
Italy- Andrea Belotti- The 27-year-old will be looking to stake a claim to start for his country in the Euros. He can increase his chances by scoring against Turkey.
