Spain Under-21 vs Macedonia Under-21 betting tips

Spain are favourites to win the UEFA European Under-21 title for a third time in the last four editions and should enjoy a comfortable winning start to their campaign against Macedonia.

Aiming to equal Italy as the most successful country in the competition’s history by achieving a fifth success, the Spanish triumphed in 2011 and 2013 before failing to qualify two years ago.

But not only are they back on track for this renewal in Poland, La Rojita have taken a hugely impressive squad that should require a great deal of beating for the other 11 competing teams.

The midfield options available to coach Albert Celades are simply mouthwatering with Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio, Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez and Barcelona’s Denis Suarez all potential candidates to be the player of the tournament.

Add into the mix Gerard Deulofeu, Everton striker target Sandro Ramirez and full-backs Hector Bellerin and Jose Luis Gaya and it is clear this is a team that not only could lift the trophy in Poland but also form the nucleus of a very powerful senior national team in the future.

It is fairly surprising, therefore, that Spain did not win their qualifying group and the reason is that they lost at home to Croatia whereas Sweden, the defending champions, finished above them by remaining unbeaten. Spain then won a play-off against Austria.

Macedonia secured their debut in the final stages of this event by topping their group ahead of France, which was no mean achievement, and did so by virtue of a very strong defensive record as they kept six clean sheets in their 10 matches.

They are clearly greater than the sum of their parts because none of the Macedonia players are with prominent European clubs, but it will be a major surprise if Spain cannot break them down and emerge comfortable winners to launch their quest for the trophy.
