Turkey hold a 2-0 lead at the break in their Euro 2016 qualifying clash against the Netherlands.

The Netherlands are on the verge of being eliminated from automatic contention for Euro 2016 as they are trailing Turkey 2-0 at the break in their qualifying match.

The home side took the lead in the eighth minute as Arda Turan found the run of Oguzhan Ozyakup, and the forward held his composure to slot the ball past Jasper Cillessen.

Netherlands almost got back into the match when Luciano Narsingh put a through-ball into the path of Robin van Persie. The forward opted to strike the ball from a tight angle, but Volkan Babacan was able to make the stop.

Serdar Aziz had a great opportunity to double Turkey's advantage as he latched on to a cross at the back post from Hakan Calhanoglu, but he could only send his header wide of the post.

The hosts did double their lead when Turan won the ball in midfield and drove into the box. The 28-year-old was afforded space and time to drive a low effort at goal that squirmed under the body of Cillessen into the net.

Turkey almost notched their third goal of the game when Burak Yilmaz raided past Jeffrey Bruma and fired an effort at goal, but Cillessen made a good stop to keep his team in the game.
