England U21 vs Romania U21 Predictions
England Under 21s will have been hoping for success at this summer’s European Championships after a couple of impressive years for some of the youth teams, including a U20 World Cup and an U19 European Championship victory. With some highly impressive young stars in his squad, Aidy Boothroyd will have come into the tournament expecting his side could progress towards the latter stages.
And although that’s still very much a possibility and perhaps even a likelihood, the Young Lions got off to the worst possible start on Tuesday night. Despite holding a 1-0 lead until injury time with 10 men after the sending off of Hamza Choudhury, England lost two goals in the dying moments to fall to defeat thanks in no small part to a dreadful error from Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Can they bounce back with a win at 1/2 with Bet365?
Romania U21s don’t have the most illustrious record in tournaments in their history. Although their first team have endured varying degrees of success in the past, the U21s have only managed to reach the finals of the European Championships on one previous occasion. But things have started to turn in their favour of late with the emergence of starlets like George Puscas and Ianis Hagi (son of legendary Gheorghe).
With nobody expecting much from a team that don’t have much history in this competition Tricolorii mici’s terrific performance in their opening game will certainly have caught the eye as goals from both Puscas and Hagi helped them on their way to a stunning 4-1 victory over Croatia in Serravelle. Can they follow that up by overcoming one of the tournament favourites at odds of 11/2 with PaddyPower?
We’re backing England to bounce back from that defeat to France but it won’t be easy. This Romania side will be high on confidence after the four goals they racked up against Croatia in that fixture and the Young Lions have looked a little shaky in defence of late, failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five fixtures. That’s why we’re on England to win and BTTS in this one at 11/5 with PaddyPower.
Dominic Solanke has a fine record with England’s youth sides. In 70 appearances for varying levels of the international youth set-up, Solanke has racked up no fewer than 36 goals, with nine of those coming in his 18 appearances for the Under 21s. We’re backing the Bournemouth man to open his U21 European Championships account with a goal at any time in this game at odds of 13/10 with Coral.
