England U21 vs France U21 Match Preview
France U21 come into the tournament in Italy as one of the favourites to lift the trophy and meet England hoping to justify such a role, which would surely mean a great step towards a top 2 spot in Group C and a ticket to the knockout stages.
Les Bleus will be without the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele but still have amazing depth in quality, led by youngsters such as Houssem Aouar, Lucas Tousart, Jonathan Bamba and Jonathan Ikone. We now expect them in great shape and surely very tough to cope with at this point.
England have high hopes of their own and with names such as Phil Foden, Ryan Sessegnon, and Tammy Abraham, it’s really hard to give an edge over them to anyone. They’ve seen their winning streak interrupted lately, though, and displays against Poland U21 (1-1) and Germany (1-2 loss) could be more worrying for Aidy Boothroyd.
Young Lions have been rather convincing through their Qualifiers campaign as well as the World Youth Festival in Toulon, which they won with a 1-2 Final win over Mexico U21. They will now hope they can build on the success and return to their 19-match unbeaten streak seen ahead of the late-March defeat in the hands of Germans.
We will now stick our necks out for France to capitalize on the Lions’ recent struggles and we’ll go for them to turn an exciting contest their way, which comes at 33/20 with Unibet and has caught the eye of many in the know already.
However, we don’t feel it will come easy and we should be in for a thriller contest on the day. We’ll thus go for a high-scoring game as possibly the best approach to the fixture with Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at enticing Evens with bet365.
