Competition: U21 European Championship
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Now facing a must-win contest on Friday, England’s young Lions will face Romania in Cesena on Friday evening.
Starting with Aidy Boothroyd’s England side, suffering late heartbreak and throwing away a 1-0 lead against France earlier in the week, the Three Lions know that victory is crucial on Friday. While the former Watford boss might boast a squad that is glittering with Premier League talent, there remains plenty of concerns over England’s recent defensive issues. Shipping a pair of goals against both Les Bleus and Germany in their last two appearances, they have now failed to record a single clean sheet since the middle of November, a six-match run. Despite failing to win any of their last three outings, the Whites will be boosted by their 2-1 win against Romania last year.
As for a resurgent Romania, putting in another very display and putting four past Croatia in their Group C opener, Head coach Mirel Rădoi will be dreaming of finding a route to the knockout stage. Now winning five of their last seven contests and a close-fought 1-0 defeat against Spain their only loss since the end of March 2018, a huge part of Tricolorii mici’s recent revival has come thanks to their form in the final third. Despite failing to record a clean sheet in any of their last three outings, they have managed to record two or more strikes in seven of their last eight contests.
