Results of the U21 Euros quarter-finals

Georgia Vs Israel (0-0 (3-4 pens))

This was quite an intense game between one-half of the host country and Israel. Israel started the game aggressively and had quite a number of attempts; meanwhile, Georgia got into the game much later, but all efforts from both teams were futile. Both sides put up impressive defensive displays, and after extra time, it came down to penalties. Georgia missed its third and fifth penalty; meanwhile, Israel converted four straight to advance to the semi-finals.

Spain Vs Switzerland (2-1)

This Spanish U21 National team has a chip on its shoulder and is a dark horse in this tournament. It was such a dramatic game as Switzerland gave Spain a run for their money. Spain opened the scoring in the second half via forward Sergio Gomez’s left-footed shot. Spain was thought to have secured their spot in the semi-finals until Switzerland equalized in the 91st minute of added time. This took the match to extra time, where Spain scored in the first half of the extra time and never looked back. They defended their lead this time to go straight to the semi-finals.

England Vs Portugal

England is undoubtedly a huge favorite to win this u21 Euros, and they keep getting closer to glory. They faced a formidable opponent in Portugal in the quarter-finals, but the “Three Lions” emerged victorious. England defeated Portugal 1-0 to go to the semifinals of the European Under-21 Championship thanks to an early goal from Anthony Gordon. To score England’s lone goal of the match. England’s defense has been incredible, as they are yet to concede a single goal in the youth competition in Georgia.

France Vs Ukraine

Ukraine has been a revelation in this tournament, and they delivered by pulling off the upset against France. They were the underdog in that matchup but did not play anything like that. Ukraine unleashed their secret weapon Mykhailo Mudryk in the game, and he showed why he is one of the most sought talents in Ukraine. France took an early lead in the game via a Rayan Cherki goal in the 19th minute, but Ukraine equalized minutes to the end of the first half via a penalty kick. In the 44th minute, Ukraine scored again as Mudryk’s incredible through pass found forward Sudakov, who converted it beautifully. Ukraine secured their win in the 86th minute with a third goal.

Betting predictions and odds for the UEFA U21 Championship semi-finals

Israel Vs England

Israel will need all the rest they can get when they play England in the semifinals; they battled bravely against Georgia in the quarterfinals, as it came down to penalties for them to advance to the semifinals. On the other hand, England struggled a bit against Portugal’s defense in the quarter-finals and will need to step up their game. England and Israel were in the same group in the group stage, and when they faced, the Three Lions eased past the Israelis, which is why we also expect a similar outcome in this semi-final matchup. Our prediction, however, for this game is a low-scoring game, given how England struggles against a quality defense.

Prediction: Under 2.5 total goals

Odd: 2.00

Spain Vs Ukraine

Ukraine has been exceptional in this competition, firing on all cylinders from the get-go. Defeating a team like France, with a 100% record in the tournament, by three goals to one is an incredible feat for the Eastern Europeans. We saw what they could do with and without their star player Mykhailo Mudryk, and Spain should be ready for what’s coming for them. Conversely, Spain might not have their best squad in this competition, but they have delivered immensely. This will be a close game, but Ukraine is backed to edge past Spain and book a spot in the finals.

Predictions: Ukraine to win

Odd: 4.70

Intense and fascinating encounters are expected in the Euro Under-21 Semifinals.
