Competition: U21 European Championships
Market: Portugal U21s to win against Sweden U21s
Odds: 4/5 @ Ladbrokes
Portugal U21s meet Sweden U21s in the 2015 U21 European Championships finals tonight, and are big favourites to go all the way given how much they’ve impressed in the tournament so far. Sweden aren’t here to make up the numbers, however, and did earn an impressive 4-1 victory against the much-fancied Denmark in the semi-finals, so today’s fixture promises to be entertaining.
Portugal have lived up to their billing this summer, but they did draw against Sweden in the group stages earlier in the tournament. Nevertheless, they have remained unbeaten for the duration, and boast a talented crop of players much more superior to that of Sweden’s. The latter stumbled over the line to progress from their group too, winning just one of their three games.
They are better known for employing negative tactics to try and grind out a win, but their convincing victory against Denmark could see them be more expansive in the final. Portugal are a tough side to beat this summer, however, as they have seen past the likes of England & Germany, and have a resilient defence when called upon.
Portugal come into the final off the back of a 5-0 win against Germany, which sees Ladbrokes backing them with odds of 4/5 to dispatch of Sweden in normal time tonight.
