Slovakia U21 vs England U21 betting tips and predictions ahead of this Under 21 European Championship tie, kicking off at 5pm on Monday, 19th June 2017. Read on for our tips and advice ahead of this clash.
Can England bounce back from their draw with Sweden on the opening day? With only one automatic spot in the semi-finals up for grabs, the pressure is on the young Lions, especially with Slovakia’s youngsters grabbing a win on Friday night.
England are in a tough position despite drawing 0-0 with Sweden. They now basically have to beat Slovakia and hosts Poland to gain a semi-final spot. That’s going to be easier said than done, but the young Lions have some poor recent displays hanging over their heads. They’ve won just one of their last 10 matches at this tournament, and Slovakia’s 2-1 win over Poland suggests that could continue. Our first Slovakia U21 vs England U21 prediction is to back Slovakia to avoid defeat, and they’re priced at 5/4 with Bet365 on the double chance market.
One recent trend in Slovakia’s games is goals, and they’ve seen both teams score in five of their last six outings ahead of this game. That run continued against Poland, as they conceded within a minute before fighting back to win. England have enough attacking talent to break them down here, but Slovakia have shown their own flair going forward. We expect to see more entertainment in this one than we did in England’s opening game. Our second Slovakia U21 vs England U21 betting tip is to back both teams to score, which is priced at 5/6 with BetFred.
England Under 21s manager Aidy Boothroyd isn’t expected to make too many changes for this clash. He doesn’t have too many better options to bring in to this side.
This is the first meeting between these two sides in recent years.
We think Slovakia will get a result, given England’s awful form at this competition. Their attacking football should put the Three Lions on the back foot, and we can see them shading an open affair here. That’s why we’re going with a victory for the underdogs in our final Slovakia U21 vs England U21 betting tip. Slovakia are good value in the match betting, but their price of 8/1 with Ladbrokes to win and BTTS looks too good to refuse.
Both teams to score – 5/6 with BetFred
Slovakia or draw double chance – 5/4 with Bet365
Slovakia to win and BTTS – 8/1 with Ladbrokes
