Italy U21 vs Germany U21: Azzurri facing another defeat

Kick Off: 1945, 24/06/2017

Stadium: Krakow Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Germany did us a big favour in their second European Under-21 Championship fixture and look worth following when they finish off the group stage by facing Italy in Krakow.

We tipped a 3-0 win at 35/4 in our preview of Wednesday’s game against Denmark and see no reason to desert the Group C leaders after two clinical victories.

We’re kicking off our Italy U21 vs Germany U21 betting tips by taking 27/20 for the 2009 champions.

A Look At Italy U21 Betting Odds

Italy suggested they could go all the way and add to a record five title triumphs in this tournament when opening with a 2-0 defeat of Denmark but were brought back down to earth by the Czech Republic.

The Azzurri were left to rue several missed chances when going down 3-1 in Tychy, but that looked a fair result overall as the victors grew in confidence throughout the contest.

Luigi Di Biagio does have some talented individuals at his disposal, including Atalanta forward Andrea Petagna, but we’re not sure they have the work-rate to match Germany.

Looking at the Italy U21 vs Germany U21 odds, 33/4 for the latter team to win 2-1 takes the eye.

A Look At Germany U21 Betting Odds

After a workmanlike 2-0 defeat of the Czech Republic first up, Germany appeared more assured when brushing aside Denmark with the minimum of fuss.

“We were a bit better than in the first match,” commented goalscorer Marc-Oliver Kempf. “At half-time, we told ourselves that we wanted to pass the ball a bit quicker and it paid off.”

The balance and rhythm shown by Germany does augur well for the knockout stages, although an Italy side needing to push forward is expected to pose more problems.

We like 15/4 for Stefan Kuntz’s side to oblige and both teams to score for our Italy U21 vs Germany U21 predictions.
