Both teams need to score
Beside the match between England and the Netherlands there will be also an encounter between Croatia and France on the second day of play of the U19 European championship. It’s hard to choose a favourite for this match. We can look forward to a balanced match. Kick-off on the 15th of July is at 7.30 p.m..
Current performance of Croatia
Well played but then also lost. That’s what describes the start of the Croatian U19 the best. The team of Ferdo Milin has played well against the Netherlands and also were able to keep up with them but in the end they had to suffer a defeat with a score of 3:1. The only goal by Croatia has been scored by Josip Prekalo. However after the first day of play they are at the bottom of the table. Nonetheless they continue the tradition of strong new talents. The star of this time is definitely Andrija Balic from Udinese Calcio. The player of the middle field already played at the highest Croatian league when he was only 16 years old. Even when he has not played for the A team of Udine it is only a matter of time until he will. The tactics of Croatia is an offensive 4-3-3-System. Their quality is especially at the offensive play because they already had trouble at the defence against the Netherlands. At the qualification matches they hadn’t any problems with that, they have won all three matches without getting a goal from the other side.
Current performance of France
The French U19 team want to emulate their role models of the national team and reach the final like Griezmann and co. Unfortunately the first match didn’t went well. At the match against England they had to suffer a defeat because of two early goals. The match ended with a score of 2:1. As well as their rivals they mastered the qualification sovereign, exactly like England they didn’t get any goal from Denmark, Serbia, or Montenegro. One of the biggest talents in the squad are Thiery Ambrose who played at the U21 team from Manchester City and Kylian Mbappé. Especially the last one is the most interesting in these rounds. With only 17 years he is one of the youngest participants but already is worth 1,5 Million Euros. He already played 11 times for the AS Monaco at the Ligue 1. His strength lies at the one on one encounter. He is often compared to Thierry Henry because he is so fast. At the defence Issa Diop from Tolouse plays a big role for the team of Ludovic Batelli. At the middle field he can also count on Lucas Tousart who also has experience at the Ligue 1.
Betting tip for this match
This will be an interesting match. Both teams need at least a drawn to keep their chances alive. France may have a little bit more chances because they have more quality at the defence. That’s why we believe in a full success of the Batelli eleven. Our tip: tip 2
