France U21 vs Romania U21 Predictions
France may have needed two last-gasp goals to overcome England in the first game of this tournament, coming from behind against the ten men to pick up a dramatic 2-1 win, but they’re now second favourites for the trophy behind current holders Germany. An eighth minute strike from Lyon forward Moussa Dembele was then enough to secure les Bleuets three more points against Croatia in game two.
Romania have surprised everyone so far with two terrific performances and two terrific wins. After thumping a highly-fancied Croatia side by a stunning 4-1 scoreline in their opening game, Tricolorii Mici then went on to put another four goals past England in their second game to run out 4-2 winners there, with both George Puscas and Ianis Hagi scoring braces in both of those group stage games.
France are clearly the stronger of the two teams on paper and have shown some resilience in winning their two games so far so if you want to back them to finish the group with the maximum nine points you can do at odds of 7/4 with PaddyPower. Romania on the other hand have already cause two surprises so far at this tournament so if you want to back them to spring another shock here you can get odds of 13/2 with Bet365.
Now, this has the potential be one of the more farcical games you are ever likely to see in international football. As things stand, both France and Romania have six points on the board, but with only the three group winners progressing alongside the team that finish second with the best record, there’s no guarantee that either side will be able to make it through to the semi-finals if they were to lose this match.
However, second place in Group B is likely to finish on six points if Denmark beat Serbia as expected on Sunday, and hosts Italy finished second in Group A with six points too, meaning that losing this game will leave the defeated side on six points and with a good chance of heading out of the tournament. As such, surely it makes the most sense to back a draw in this game at odds of 17/20 with Unibet.
In fact, it may makes sense to go one step further even and back a goalless draw. Knowing that a goal against them could be enough to spell an end to their tournament, neither side can be expected to be too adventurous in this game and that could lead to a rather drab affair in which neither side chooses to throw caution to the wind for risk of being knocked out. A goalless draw seems more than a possibility at odds of 7/2 with Unibet.
