• This will be the 20th meeting between the sides; Czech Republic (including Czechoslovakia) won 12 of the previous 19 while Turkey won four (D3).
  • This will be just the second meeting between the sides at a major tournament after the two met at EURO 2008 with Turkey winning 3-2, despite trailing 2-0 with less than 20 minutes of the match remaining thanks to goals from Arda Turan and Nihat (2).
  • That result meant Turkey qualified for the knockout stages of EURO 2008 at the expense of the Czech Republic who finished third in the group; Turkey were eventually knocked out at the semi-final stage.
  • Czech Republic and Turkey also met in qualifying for EURO 2016; Czech Republic finished top of Group A while Turkey qualified as the best third placed team.

  • The Czech Republic have scored in 12 of their last 13 group games at the European Championships.

  • Turkey have had a player booked in each of their last 17 games at major tournaments, last avoiding a booking against Italy at Euro 2000.
