Spain U21 vs France U21 Predictions
Spain have been one of the better teams in this competition in recent years. In line with the progression of the first team, La Rojitaa were among the better youth teams at the turn of the decade too, winning the 2011 and 2013 competitions and they finished as runners-up in the last tournament, losing to Germany in a final that many suspect could be replicated this time around with both sides reaching the semi-finals.
It’s been a particularly impressive achievement from this Spanish outfit to reach the semi-finals after losing their first game to Italy and with only four teams from 12 progressing from the group stages. Luis de la Fuente’s men bounced back in perfect fashion to win the next two games, beating Belgium 2-1 and then an in-form Polish side by a stunning 5-0 scoreline. You can back them to win this one at 13/10 with Unibet.
There’s plenty of pressure on the French Under 21 side to produce a positive performance at this summer’s Championships in Italy. Just twelve months after the senior team won the biggest prize of all by lifting the World Cup in Russia, these young charges are hoping to prove themselves capable of stepping up into the strongest squad in international football in the upcoming years and continuing the good times for les Bleus.
Sylvain Ripoll certainly didn’t make things easy for themselves in the group stages. Having been behind for so long to a ten-man England side, they needed two goals in the last few minutes to pick up all three points in that game before narrowly beating Croatia 1-0 and playing out a 0-0 draw with Romania to secure progression to this stage. Can they now overcome Spain at odds of 5/2 with 888sport to reach the final for the first time since 2002?
We’re struggling to pick a winner between these two teams. Spain perhaps performed slightly better in the group stages, but they finished on fewer points and some of their weaknesses were made evident in that defeat against the hosts Italy. With more on the line in these knock-out games, we’re expecting both teams to adopt a slightly more reserved approach and as such we can see the French side drawing a second consecutive fixture at 11/5 with Bet365.
Spain managed to score the first goal in all three of their group stages games, including the game they lost against Italy. France meanwhile only scored the first goal in one of their three games, with no goals scored in their draw against Italy and with England taking the lead in their opening group game before les Bleuets managed to turn the game around late on. That’s why we’re backing la Rojita to score first here at 5/6 with Coral.
