Turkey vs Georgia

Türkiye are on a poor run of form coming into their opening game of Euro 2024. They are without a win in their last five matches. Their last 10 matches have seen them concede an average of 1.7 goals per game but they are strong favourites with the bookmakers for this clash. They have also scored an average of 1.4 goals during that 10-match period.

Georgia are participating in their first European Championships. They have nothing to lose and their star player, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, can have an impact in the attacking third. The Georgians were impressive in their final warm-up game away in Montenegro as they won 3-1 so I’m happy to back them to score here.

Portugal vs Czech Republic

Portugal are fourth favourites for the tournament and have been widely tipped to lift the trophy in the build-up. They have an abundance of quality in all areas of the pitch and should get off to a winning start on Thursday night. Since Roberto Martinez took charge, the team have won all 10 of their competitive matches, scoring 3.4 more goals per game than they are conceding on average.

The Czech Republic were beaten 4-0 the last time they faced Portugal, which was back in the 2022 UEFA Nations League. They are enjoying a run of five consecutive victories but this represents a huge step up in quality for the opposition.
