Spain U21 vs Portugal U21, UEFA Under-21 Semifinal, 03.06.2021
Spain Under-21s and Portugal Under-21s face off in the first of what could be a potentially thrilling semifinal in the European Under-21 Championship on Thursday evening.
Both of them took part in dramatic quarter-finals, as they both survived last-minute equalizers to overcome Croatia Under-21s and Italy Under-21s respectively in overtime.
For this semifinal, we are going to explore Worldsportsbetting bookie review prices for our betting tips for this game.
Spain have been a powerhouse at this level considering the fact that they are yet to taste defeat since 2019. They breezed through the group stage to top Group B with 2 wins and a draw while keeping clean sheets in those three group games.
Luis de la Fuente’s side got their first real test in the quarter-finals where they looked set to prevail but conceded a 94th-minute penalty that Croatia converted to force extra time. However, Javi Puado who had scored their opener, scored again to book their spot in the semis.
La Rojita have dominated this competition over the last decade and will be out to defend their trophy they won for the third time, just two years ago.
Rui Jorge saw his talented cast give up the lead twice in normal time against Italy on Monday night, paving the way for extra time. They made the most of Italian defender Matteo Lovato getting his marching orders for a second bookable offence in Overtime, eventually prevailing 5-3 thanks to goals from Jota and Francisco Conceicao in the extra period.
Like Spain, they also dominated the group stage, winning all three matches without conceding a goal. They beat Croatia 1-0, England 2-0, and Switzerland 3-0.
Spain certainly will present bigger challenges but Esperancas are confident coming into this match as they have won their last 11 straight matches.

SPAIN U21 VS PORTUGAL U21 MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING PREDICTIONS
These two teams are quite evenly matched. They are both on incredible runs coming into this semi-final match. The fact that both of them went into extra-time in their quarter-final matches means that neither side has any considerable edge in terms of fitness levels. Both managers may need to consider throwing in some fresh legs into the rotation. That said, we still anticipate a closely fought game here. The first half is going to be crucial for both teams and we feel they will cancel each other as they seek to impose their will on the game. We are therefore predicting the two teams to be level at the break @ 1.99 as our opening betting tip.
Coach Rui Jorge’s decision to play without a defensive midfielder against Italy came back to haunt him as the Azzuri mounted a comeback from down 3-1 to push the game into extra time. We expect that to change here and as a result, this game may take a much more cautious approach. Both teams have been solid defensively in this tournament and in the qualifiers. For our final tip, we are therefore going for Under 2.5 goals @ 1.59.
