Wales won't have the crowd on their side, then, but could be feeling upbeat after Kieffer Moore's header rescued a point against Switzerland. Talisman forward and team captain Gareth Bale will definitely start, though Turkey have their own experienced players in defender Caglar Soyuncu and striker Burak Yilmaz.
The line-ups have now been confirmed for both teams, so here's how they'll take to the field:
Turkey (4-1-4-1): Cakir; Celik, Ayhan, Soyuncu, Meras; Yokuslu; Under, Karaman, Tufan, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz.
Wales (4-3-2-1): Ward; C. Roberts, Mepham, Rodon, B. Davies; Allen, Morrell; Bale, Ramsey, James; Moore.
