Spain U21 coach Luis de la Fuente

U21 Euro 2021 odds: Spain tipped to retain title

Holders Spain are 4/1 favourites to successfully defend their trophy in bwin’s U21 Euro 2021 odds ahead of Monday’s quarter-finals.

Luis de la Fuente remains in charge and they topped their qualifying table in smooth style with two wins and a draw.

Roma playmaker Gonzalo Villar made this team tick during that campaign while former Manchester City youngster Brahim Diaz has done well on loan at AC Milan this season.

Germany, who were runners-up two years ago and claimed outright glory in 2017, can be backed at 5/1 to go all the way this time in Hungary and Slovenia.

Euro 96 winner Stefan Kuntz is at the helm while Wolfsburg midfielder Ridle Baku has already been capped at senior level.

Manchester City forward Lukas Nmecha represented England at various youth stages but can now boast 10 goals in 17 appearances for this side and netted 14 times for Anderlecht in Belgium’s Jupiler League this term.

France reached the semi-finals last time and are 9/2 second favourites to lift the trophy this summer under ex-Lorient boss Sylvain Ripoll.

Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier and Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard are familiar faces in this squad while RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is a star name.

Portugal look progressive

Portugal are 5/1 after impressing in qualifying, scoring six times without conceding once in a hat-trick of wins, which included a 2-0 defeat of England.

Rui Jorge has been their head coach since 2010 and his squad features Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot and midfielder Vitinha, who was on loan at Wolves last term.

Denmark were the only other team to secure nine points in qualifying and are 10/1 in bwin’s U21 Euro 2021 odds.

Head coach Albert Capellas previously worked at Barcelona’s academy and overage winger Jacob Bruun Larsen looks one to watch.

Netherlands have been eased out to 13/2 after Cody Gakpo was called up to the senior squad but AZ playmaker Dani de Wit and Justin Kluivert could be key figures.

Italy have Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone and can be backed at 8/1 while 11/1 outsiders Croatia are managed by former Liverpool defender Igor Biscan.
