Tournament: UEFA Euro U-21
On Wednesday evening on Mapei Stadium in Italian Reggio Emilia youth national teams of Spain and Belgium will decide what team will be the strongest in the frames of the 2nd round of the UEFA Euro U-2. In frames of such tournaments the teams usually prefer defensive football, trying not to make rude mistakes and not to leave the competition at the very beginning.
Belgium and Spain could have play like this, but there is a slight problem. Firstly, in their debut rivals both were weak, having lost to Poland (2:3) and the favorite of the Italian championship (1:3) correspondingly. Secondly, in frames of the youth Euro only the winners of the groups will get into the semifinal and also the best team out of three quartets that would have taken the 2nd place. Bearing in mind the presence of Italy in group A that has confidently won in the first meeting and won’t probably stop, Spain and Belgium have to win and hope to become the second best team.
The problem of the Red Devils is a weak defense – the Poles didn’t show anything extraordinary in attack but they were able to score even three times. Furia Roja’s attacking line is more representative and that is why it is possible that the goalkeeper of Belgium will get two-three goals out of his gate and this will surelu lead to the second defeat of Belgium on this tournament.
Our tip: Spain to win – odds 1.59 Pinnacle
