Turkey vs Brazil (International Friendly, 12.11.2014)

Turkey host Brazil for a friendly where both teams need the win: Turkey to get ready for EURO 2016 qualifications and Brazil still trying to shake off the World Cup experience. The match is friendly only on paper as Brazil will for sure try to win this one despite the fact that fans are demanding certain changes which made Dunga shake up the selection to its core; Brazil now have few players left from the team that embarrassed themselves during the World Cup.

The hosts have only one point so far from their qualification games, sit at the bottom of the table and have a negative goal difference. Fatih Terim did not call up Toprak and Clahanoglu from Bayer Leverkusen, and rumors are the decision was based on the heavily discussed incident with Gökhan Töre. Terim has been heavily criticized for the decision to back Gökhan Töre, while punishing the two Leverkusen players. Demirel has also returned to the squad to join Yilmaz, Inan and Altintop from Galatasaray. Turan, Erdinc and Ayhan are the only players who play outside of Turkey to make the squad.
Brazil are still trying to overcome their World Cup nightmare by lining up friendly games against European teams. By continuing the changing process started right after the World Cup, Dunga has called Roberto Firmino for the first time to the national team for the upcoming two friendly games. Brazil has now one of the strongest lineup in years with Moura, Douglas Costa, Adriano and Casemiro, Dunga gives Brazil that youthful vibe it has been known for. Neymar is once again set to captain Brazil to victory after that 4-0 against Japan, which came right after Dunga stated the national team is not built around the Barcelona player.

While Turkey might play better in front of the home crowd, this is Brazil who have much more class and star power than their opponents. If you would like to bet on Brazil to win, Unibet gives you 1.67 odds, and still one of your safest bets would be for Neymar to score anytime. Keep in mind that Brazil won their last thirteen friendly games, which explains why Turkey got 4.65 odds to win. Brazil to lead at half time has 2.32 odds, over 2.5 goals 1.89, and we’re betting 7 units on Brazil to win both halves with 4.50 odds from Unibet.
