Portugal U21 vs Spain U21 – UEFA U21 Championship.
Stadion Miejski, Gdynia – 20 June 2017, 19:45.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
The biggest derby game of UEFA U21 Championship group stages Round 2 will take place on Tuesday night in Gdynia. Neighbors and big football rivals Portugal U21 and Spain U21 will lock horns and the winner of this match will keep high chances of reaching the semi – finals as group winner.
Both sides have had a successful start of the campaign. Spain U21 have crushed Macedonia 5 – 0 thanks to the spectacular performance from Marco Asensio who scored three goals. He will surely represent the greatest danger for Portuguese defenders on Tuesday as well. The odds to see Real’s youngster bag another goal are priced at 13/8.
Portugal have won the game against Serbia 2 – 0, but everyone who watched that game probably has a feeling they didn’t deserve three points. They were not dominant at all, and scored two goals thanks to a couple of lucky chip shots. This was probably the biggest reason why the bookies favour Spain with 4/5 odds to win the duel.
When it comes to Portugal’s super stars, the biggest one is surely Renato Sanches. He wasn’t playing much against Serbia, but 15 minutes on the pitch were enough for him to make one assist.
Since Portuguese youngsters were not looking convincing at all a couple of days ago, we feel that bet Spain to win to nil’ at 21/10 is definitely worth a punt.
Interestingly, these two teams haven’t met for more than 20 years (U21 category).
