Hosts Poland and holders Sweden can’t afford any more slip-ups when they clash at the European Under-21 Championship in Lublin on Monday.

Poland are bottom of Group A after starting with a loss to Slovakia, while Sweden had to settle for a goalless draw against England due to a missed penalty.

However, for us, the Scandinavian outfit showed more promise and get the vote at 3/2 in our Poland U21 vs Sweden U21 betting tips.

A Look At Poland U21 Betting Odds

Poland got off to a dream start against Slovakia when Patryk Lipski headed them in front after just 53 seconds, but it all went downhill from then on.

The hosts were edged out 2-1 by both Italy and the Czech Republic in March warm-up games and eventually went down by the same scoreline at this venue.

Goalkeeper Jakub Wrabel will be disappointed with his attempt to stop Martin Valjent’s equaliser and a defensive mix-up allowed substitute Pavol Safranko to hit the winner on the break.

Looking at the Poland U21 vs Sweden U21 odds, yet another 2-1 defeat for the hosts takes the eye at 35/4.

A Look At Sweden U21 Betting Odds

Sweden had to withstand some early pressure against England but gradually worked their way into an even contest and had a glorious chance to strike when Ben Chilwell clattered into Linus Wahlqvist.

The Norrkoping full-back got up to take the spot-kick but failed to find a way past Everton’s new £30million keeper Jordan Pickford.

Pawel Cibicki also struck the woodwork for Sweden, who showed plenty of pace on the break, and forward Simon Tibbling felt they could take plenty of positives from the performance.

He said: “It was a good game and the longer the game went on, the more we came into it. We’re looking forward to the next two games and we have a great chance of going through.”

We’re taking 31/10 for Sweden to win and over 2.5 goals in the game combined.
