Slovakia U21 vs England U21 – UEFA U21 Championship.
Kolporter Arena, Kielce – 19 June 2017, 17:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
The first round of UEFA U21 Championship group stages has brought us a big upset and 2 – 1 victory of Slovakia U21 against the hosts of the tournament. This shocking result has placed England U21 into a very tough situation, because only one team from the group will be making it to the semi – finals. They surely don’t want to gamble with being the best 2nd placed team, so three points from the Monday’s clash are pretty much a must for Aidy Boothroyd and his squad.
The opening match for The Young Lions against Sweden U21 wasn’t so great. Full time result was 0 – 0 and we didn’t get to see much from Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Abraham and the others. Swedes have had an excellent opportunity to win the game but Wahlqvist’s shot from the penalty spot was stopped by Pickford.
Slovaks have shown strong mentality after pulling a comeback and winning their game against Poland from Behind. Martin Valijent and Pavol Safranko were the goal scorers. Slovakian head manager Pavel Hapal said his team won’t be making any calculations and has plans to be aggressive against England.
The bookies are currently favouring England U21 team to win the game at 3/4 price. Chances for Slovaks to win their second consecutive game in the championship are not looking so great at 10/3. We wouldn’t mess a lot with full time winner predictions here. Slovaks are having strong offensive line and we believe they will find the net against England at least once.
Both teams to score is our primary bet here at 1/1.
