Where: Olympic Stadium, Berlin, GermanyWhen: Saturday, November 18, 8:45 PM CET
The Germans have had problems over the past year, showing numerous weaknesses. After a shameful exit from the World Cup in Qatar, their struggles continued, losing some friendlies in an alarming manner. On the other side, Turkey is trying to find its rhythm, and right now, they look like a team with solid potential, yet without consistency. This matchup will present a nice chance for both these units to see where they stand at the moment, and what needs to be fixed in the near future.
Germany vs. Turkey Preview
Die Mannschaft finally posted a stretch of decent performances, with them staying unbeaten for three straight games. It all started against France at home, when they defeated the Gauls, 2-1, before beating the Americans in the United States, 1-3, and then four days later, played 2-2 vs Mexico.
Julian Nagelsmann is trying to copy/paste his previous tactics and strategy from Bayern onto the German national team, but he needs time. The majority of the players are from the Bavarian unit, but the rest need to adapt to the new circumstances.
The biggest problem for Germans is the defense, with them often conceding plenty of goals and having problems resisting the rival’s pressure. The four-time World champs have eight consecutive matches in which they couldn’t keep a clean sheet.
The Lions from Bosphorus had a fantastic stretch of games at the finish of the EURO 2024 qualifiers. They made a complete sensation by beating Croatia on the road, 0-1, thus opening the door to the continental championship. After that, they secured the ticket with a 4-0 triumph over Latvia.
Turks are playing fantastic football at home, but their performances away from Istanbul, Bursa, Ankara, and other native cities are generally poor, and that’s why a victory against the Croats is so important.
Their matches usually have a moderate efficiency, meaning two or three goals, as six of the recent ten meetings ended like that.

Germany vs Turkey Predictions
We expect the tradition of high-scoring matches to continue and to see at least three goals in Saturday’s contest. Both teams don’t have some top-notch defenses, while their respective attacks are solid. Plus, Germany will attack for sure, which creates a good environment for high-scoring efficiency.
Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
