Burak Yilmaz injury doubt for Czech Republic qualifier

Burak Yilmaz injury doubt for Czech Republic qualifierGalatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz could miss the penultimate Euro 2016 qualifier vs Czech Republic, according to the latest reports.

Turkey moved two points clear of fourth-placed Netherlands with an impressive 3-0 victory earlier this month, and they are now 2.80 (9/5) to win their next qualifier and edge closer to play-off berth.

However, there have been some bad news for coach Fatih Terim with key attacker Burak Yilmaz (42/19) having suffered a hamstring problem at the weekend.

The 30-year-old suffered the injury in weekend’s match against Trabzonspor and the initial reports suggest he is likely to miss the Euro 2016 qualifiers vs Czech Republic and Iceland on 10 October and 13 October.

That is going to be considered a major blow for Milli Takim considering that Yilmaz has scored four goals in six games in the current campaign.

His club teammate Umut Bulut (37/10) is expected to deputize for the Galatasaray star in case initial predictions prove correct.
