Turkey and Gibraltar will square off in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The home side come into the clash on the back of a 2-1 comeback victory away to Latvia last month. The dramatic game saw all three goals scored in the last 20 minutes. Burak Yilmaz scored the winning goal from the spot in the eighth minute of injury time.

Gibraltar suffered a harrowing 6-0 defeat away to the Netherlands. Memphis Depay scored a first-half brace to guide his side to an emphatic win.

Turkey vs Gibraltar Prediction

Turkey are seeking to qualify for the FIFA World Cup for the first time since 2002 and despite being outside the qualification spots, their chances are boosted by their final two matches.

They are due to play Gibraltar and Montenegro, who are among the lowest-ranked sides in European football. Victories in both games would put Turkey in prime position, with the top two facing one another on the final matchday.

We are backing the hosts to triumph with a comfortable victory.

Prediction: Turkey 4-0 Gibraltar
