Germany U21 v Spain U21 Betting Tips and Odds

In our Germany U21 v Spain U21 betting preview we look at the best possible betting tips between the two sides.


On Friday evening this week we see Stefan Kuntz’s Germany come up against Albert Celades’ Spain in the final of the U21 European Championship at Stadion Cracovii im. Józefa Piłsudskiego . This is a fitting final, since it matches the two best teams at the tournament against one another. There is an abundance of quality in both sides, an abundance most obvious in their respective midfield ranks.

The Spain midfield is surely the envy of every team in the competition. Barcelona’s Denis Suarez is a cultured playmaker who can thread multiple passes between the lines, while Niguez is a box-to-box workhorse with a knack for finding the net. Yet it’s a similar story for Germany, where Max Meyer, Mahmoud Dahoud and Maximilian Arnold pull the strings from central areas. Their quick and intelligent, one-touch passing produces some artful combination play for Die Mannschaft.

The Spaniards celebrate reaching the final

It’s not often Germany are the underdogs

Germany scraped through to the final by the skin of their teeth after they were taken to penalties by Aidy Boothroyd’s England on Tuesday evening in Poland. The main thing though is that they are here now and their sole focus will be travelling back to Germany as champions. When you look at the calibre of players who are eligible to play for them in this tournament but haven’t travelled, it makes you realise just how strong of a nation they are. Players such as Julian Brandt, Timo Werner, Leroy Sane, Niklas Sule & Joshua Kimmich are all not involved. If you add them to the current squad they are a serious force.

Their current squad isn’t too shabby either though, they are still stacked with talent. The pick of the bunch at the minute has to be striker Davie Selke of Red Bull Leipzig. The striker has been directly involved in more goals (3) than any other German player at the U21 Euros. He scored the opening goal of the semi-final versus England on Tuesday evening. He was a constant nuisance to their back line and will look to play a similar role here.

Germany celebrate the decisive penalty

Will they go five from five?

Spain come into the final as clear favourites to become champions. They have enjoyed a perfect tournament which has seen them win all four of their fixtures. Scoring twelve goals in the process and conceding just twice. Niguez and Sanchez are a brilliant pairing, but they are supplemented by outrageously gifted Real Madrid youngster Marco Asensio. The 20-year-old is a classy presence markers have a hard time tracking between the midfield and forward lines. It just proves how good they are when a player as gifted as Malaga’s Pablo Fornals is usually sat on the bench. Asensio could be enjoying a seriously successful month which could see him win both the Champions League and now the U21 Euros. One advantage Spain have over their opponents is that they are at near full strength. Their first team aren’t playing in the Confederations Cup and therefore have full availability of players.

While the players operating along the spine of each team have been excellent, both nations are also blessed with prolific wide players. For Spain, Gerard Deulofeu and Dani Ceballos are as tricky as they come, capable of tying any defence in knots. Deulofeu has impressed so much recently that Barcelona are reportedly going to trigger his buy back clause and sign him permanently from Everton. Spains semi-final saw them come up against Luigi Di Biagio’s Italy. One player in particular stole the whole show. Saul Niguez of Atletico Madrid bagged himself a hat-trick to help his side to 3-1 victory and a spot in the final.
