Turkey vs Luxembourg Prediction, lineups, Turkey Lineups vs Luxembourg, Luxembourg Lineup vs Turkey UEFA National League 2022/23 Fixtures and Results today.

Turkey will want to maintain their perfect record in the UEFA Nations League when they play Luxembourg on Thursday. The visitors must win to have any chance of passing their next opponents for first place.

After being demoted to League C in the Nations League, Turkey was anticipated to return to Europe’s second division as the highest-ranked nation in the third tier this time.

So far, Stefan Kuntz’s team has not disappointed, scoring 14 goals with no reaction while winning four games in a row against Luxembourg, the Faroe Islands, and Lithuania (twice).

Kuntz, whose equalizer against England at Euro 1996 helped knock the Three Lions out in the semi-finals, has a remarkable record in command of the Crescent-Stars since taking over last September, winning seven of his ten matches.

The sole blemish on the 59-year-record old’s is a 3-1 defeat to Portugal in March, which destroyed Turkey’s chances of qualifying for a third World Cup.

An eighth victory over Luxembourg on Thursday would at the very least ensure their return to Europe’s League B in the Nations League, perhaps enhancing their prospects of qualifying for the World Cup in 2026.

Turkey vs Luxembourg

In terms of the Nations League, Luxembourg was promoted to League C at the first try before placing second to Montenegro in the last round. Unless they can score a remarkable victory at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium on Thursday, history appears certain to repeat itself.

Prediction: Turkey 2-0 Luxembourg

Even with a handful of midfield injury absences, Turkey should be too good for their opponents. Luxembourg has greatly improved in recent years, but they still lack talent in some areas, thus the hosts will be keen to keep their perfect record and gain promotion to League B.
