Portugal U21

Portugal U21 kicks off this match with a 0-3 triumph on their journey to Switzerland's Under-21 territory, adding up the third consecutive victory in this UEFA European Under-21 Championship: the team's goals were signed by Francisco Conceição, Diogo Queirós and Francisco Trincão. Commander Rui Jorge should play in the usual 4-4-2, privileging the maintenance of ball possession and organized attacks, however, in some moments of the match, he should favor counterattacks. Right winger Francisco Trincão is the highlight of this team with 2 goals scored. All players are available for this match.


Italy U21

In this match against Portugal U21, coach Paolo Nicolato should play in 3-5-2 favoring defensive organization and counterattacks by the runners. The athlete that deserves to be highlighted at the individual level is striker Patrick Cutrone: this player is the best scorer in Italy U21 with 2 goals scored. There are no noteworthy absences for this match.


Betting Verdict:

This match brings face to face teams with some quality difference, and for this reason, Portugal U21 is expected to dominate much of the match and create more danger compared to the opponent. On the other hand, the Italians should have their lesson well studied, which will involve defending in an organized manner and looking for any counterattack to score goals. Having said that and taking into account these factors, we believe that risking in favor of goals is a good option.
