After a first half dominated by the Italians, but producing no goals, Gli Azzuri was able to convert chances in the second half to win the first game of the 2020 Euros.

An unfortunate own goal for Turkey and Juventus center back Merih Demiral was followed up by a great poached goal from Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, who put the game away in his own backyard.
