Spain to shine in Krakow


After a fortnight of glorious football from some of the continent’s brightest talents, Friday sees the European Under-21 Championship come to an end when Spain take on Germany in the final.

Both have impressed during their time in Poland, with Die Mannschaft showing themselves to be as efficient as ever while La Roja have dazzled with their pace and verve.

These two have only met three times at this level and with two wins and a draw, Spain will be keen to continue that run in Krakow as they aim to seal the tournament for the third time in four editions.

Germany’s last European success in the Under-21s came in 2009, with a team that included a number of those who went on to triumph at the 2014 World Cup.

The current crop do not have the same star quality although they have shown themselves to be a solid unit and demonstrated their determination in beating England on penalties in the semi-finals.

Davie Selke (49/20 – Anytime Goalscorer) has scored twice so far in the tournament and will be hoping for plenty of service from the stellar midfield cast which includes Max Meyer and Serge Gnabry.

Three wins in a tough Group B says it all, but Spain, who are 20/23 to triumph in 90 minutes, with the draw 13/5, were less convincing in their 3-1 semi-final win over Italy.

However, up stepped Saul Niguez (5/2 – Anytime Goalscorer), grabbing himself a hat-trick to take his tally for the tournament to five.

Unlike England ,who again chose not to select all of the players available to them, the decision to send Saul to Poland, despite having three caps at senior level and over 100 La Liga appearances, showed just how highly Spaniards value this event.

His midfield partnership with Dani Ceballos could be crucial and they are sure to provide the likes of Sandro Ramirez and Marco Asensio with plenty of opportunities.

With Spain netting 12 goals in their four games, over 2.5 goals again looks on the agenda at 5/6 while both to score is also an option at 4/5.

Both nations have won at the Stadion Cracovia over the last fortnight, but Spain are hard to ignore and should sneak it, potentially in a game with both scoring (5/2).
