We picked out Spain as the team to follow in our pre-tournament preview of the European Under-21 Championship and are more than happy to stick with them in the final against Germany.
Big guns such as Real Madrid star Marco Asensio and Atletico Madrid ace Saul Niguez have lived up to their star billing and are fancied to again deliver the goods in the decider.
The chance to secure a record-equalling fifth U21 Euro title awaits and La Roja get the nod at 87/100 to win in normal time in our Germany U21 vs Spain U21 betting tips.
A Look At Germany U21 Betting Odds
Germany made it through the group stage as the best runners-up thanks to efficient wins over the Czech Republic and Denmark and bounced back from a loss to Italy when knocking England out in the semis.
Stefan Kuntz’s side had to go all the way to penalties to prevail but had been the better team during a 2-2 draw in normal time, with lively goal-poacher Davie Selke and Felix Platte on target.
Keeper Julian Pollersbeck was the shoot-out hero and midfielder Nadiem Amiri justifiably commented: “We were fitter and more determined towards the end of the game, so it’s absolutely deserved that we’re in the final.”
The way Germany dominated the latter stages of that match was eye-catching, forcing England back with sheer physical strength and athleticism, so they should make their presence felt in the final.
We still prefer the favourites but 27/10 for La Roja to win and both teams to score stands out from the Germany U21 vs Spain U21 odds.
A Look At Spain U21 Betting Odds
One glance at the Spain squad sent out to Poland was enough to earn our support for outright glory and they have justified that faith with four straight victories.
Macedonia, a decent Portugal side and Serbia were beaten during the pool stage and then a well-drilled Italy outfit had no answer to a brilliant second-half hat-trick from Niguez in the semis.
Spain did benefit from Roberto Gagliardini’s red card, but this was still another example of how well they have gelled together during this tournament.
Head coach Albert Celades said: “Of course, we have good players playing at a top level in our league and other leagues in Europe but their strongest thing is the relationship they have between them – they’re a team.”
Germany may put up a strong fight, but we’re going for Spain to prevail 2-1 at 15/2 in our U21 Euro final predictions.
GERMANY 2-2 England (4-3 on penalties) – Davie Selke, Felix Platte
SPAIN 3-1 Italy – Saul Niguez (3)
