Serbia U21 vs Macedonia U21: Young Eagles tipped to soar

Serbia U21 vs Macedonia U21: Young Eagles tipped to soar

Kick Off: 1700, 20/06/2017

Stadium: Bydgoszcz Stadium

TV: Sky Sports 1

Serbia and Macedonia both had their limitations exposed in the opening round of European Under-21 Championship games and already look to be fighting just for pride in Bydgoszcz on Tuesday.

On Saturday’s form and past history, Serbia appear worthy favourites to come out on top, having won three and drawn one of their four previous head-to-head encounters.

That record includes a 5-1 rout when they last met in September 2012 and we like 8/5 for Nenad Lalatovic’s side to again win by more than one goal in our Serbia U21 vs Macedonia U21 betting tips.

A Look At Serbia U21 Betting Odds

Serbia were competitive for large periods of Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Portugal but were ultimately undone by their opponents’ extra class.

There was no disgrace in that defeat, though, with the introduction of Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches really making a difference.

Serbia’s form in qualifying was solid, claiming two 1-1 draws against group winners Italy as they scored 27 times in 10 games before enjoying a 2-1 aggregate win over Norway in the play-offs.

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic and Benfica recruit Andrija Zivkovic can lead the way in a 2-0 success, which is available at 27/4 in the Serbia vs Macedonia odds.

A Look At Macedonia U21 Betting Odds

Macedonia were unlucky to come up against a quality Spain side in their first ever game at a U21 Euro finals competition, eventually being thrashed 5-0 as Real Madrid ace Marco Asensio hit a hat-trick.

However, head coach Blagoja Milevski felt his team fared better than that result suggests for much of the match, stating: “There were moments where we were Spain’s equal – we had equal possession for almost 60 minutes.

“We had organised attacks, we had corner-kicks and shots on goal, and were almost level in that respect, but afterwards we faded.”

A similar showing could make 13/4 for draw half-time and Serbia full-time tempting.
