Turkey Vs Italy TV Channel And Live Stream For Euro 2020 Opener

The European Championships will finally take place on Friday, albeit a year later than planned, with Turkey and Italy kicking off the show tonight.

UEFA's flagship national tournament kicks off this week as 24 of Europe's best sides in action all across the continent.

Rome will play host for the very first game of the contest as Turkey and Italy lock horns before the games start to come thick and fast.

The sides are in Group A in the tournament, along with Switzerland and Wales - and both will be hoping to continue their fine form from qualifying in the competition proper.

In the 11 previous meetings between the two sides, Italy have come out on top eight times, with the other three games resulting in draws.

However, with Turkey proving their worth against Europe's big sides in recent years, this one could be tight.

With anticipation building towards the opener, how can fans tune in?

When is Turkey vs Italy?

The first game of Euro 2020 will take place on Friday, June 11 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy.

What TV channel is it on?

Turkey vs Italy will be broadcast on BBC, with BBC and ITV sharing the rights for the tournament.

The match will be televised on BBC One for free, with coverage from 7pm (BST) before an 8pm kick-off.

UK viewers will also be able to watch the match online for free via BBC iPlayer.

Possible line-ups

Turkey: Uğurcan Çakır; Zeki Çelik, Merih Demiral, Çağlar Söyüncü, Umut Meraş; Okay Yokuşlu, Ozan Tufan, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Cengiz Ünder, Kenan; Burak Yılmaz
