Duel for the group winning
When today at the U 19 European championship Italy meets Portugal in Germany then it is a duel of the first position of the group A. If this match ends in a drawn Austria could be the lucky third one. Kick-off on the 17th of July is at 6.30 p.m..
Current performance of Italy
The Italian U19 team is on the best way to go the same way as their A national team and might get to the KO phase of the EURO. After the victory with a score of 1:0 at the first match against the host Germany they also have won a point against Austria at the second match of the group. After an early backlog the Italian team strike back and the end score was 1:1. There even has some chances missed for a victory goal. The strength of Italy is definitely the defence. While other teams have already got more than one goal from the other side, the goal from Austria was the first and the only one for Italy. The self-esteem of the team from Paolo Vanoli should be right. The results of this year from the U19 team is also positive. In all seven matches this year they haven’t suffered any defeat and even have won four times.
Current performance of Portugal
Similar signs as in Italy are also seen in Portugal. The team of Edgar Borges has 4 point at the moment, this means they have won one match and one ended in a drawn. They have won against the host Germany with a score of 4:3. This match has been an emotional roller coaster ride for them. At first they had to make the backlog good, then they haven’t been able to keep their lead but finally they had built up their lead with a score of 4:2. The strength of Portugal is the offensive play which is the total opposite of the Italian strength. This is due to their proven 4-3-3-System. At the attack they count on player Buta who already has played eleven times for the U 19 Portugal team and has been successful five times, once also against Germany. We will see if the offensive play of Portugal will be successful against the defence play of Italy.
Betting tip for this match
It is a duel that still means a lot for both teams. When it comes to a defeat for one team than the semi-final could be history. The perfect result for both teams would be a drawn with a score of 2:2 because then both teams would be promoted. Of course every drawn with more goals would be great. We believe that this will happen. That’s why our tip is : tip x.
