England Under 21’s vs Czech Rep Under 21’s odds
England under 21’s
It is do or die for England’s young boys in Denmark, after their 0-0 draw with Ukraine they need to win against the Czechs to stand any chance whatsoever of progressing in the tournament. Defensive tactics have been mainly blamed for the failure to utilize the talent on offer and even with Stuart Pearce changing to a more offensive 4-3-3 there was little improvement. Danny Rose played as a left back for Spurs in the last few games of the season and was our left sided winger, Jack Rodwell is a defensive midfielder and Michael Mancienne is a centre back not a midfielder, so the lack of goals is hardly surprising. Daniel Sturridge had the best chance to give England the lead and must perform against the Czechs if England are to have any luck, the odds of him scoring a brace are tempting at 10.0 on PaddyPower.
England’s young boys need to pull out all the stops and go for broke in this make or break game, it has been suggested that the introduction of Scott Sinclair and Henri Lansbury could provide some creativity and feed Danny Welbeck who looked isolated up top on his own. Sinclair is tipped at 11.0 to score the final goal in the game on BoyleSports so could be a good bet for the game. England will be pulling out all the stops though, so if you expect them to improve and start scoring like they were tipped too why not bet on their being over 3.5 goals in the game at odds of 1.3 on Betfair.
Czech Republic U21’s
The Czechs played well in their fixture against the Spanish, but the quality at Spain’s disposal was extremely apparent as they passed the ball around them as if they weren’t there, enjoying more than 60% of the ball possession. The Czechs can look back at their first game win with confidence then, Borek Dockal provided the killer edge in their game against the Ukrainian U21’s so maybe he can be relied on to push the Czech youngsters into the second round. He has odds of 6.5 on William Hill to score at any time in the fixture.
Ex-Liverpool youngster Tomas Pekhart is a dangerous threat for the Czechs as well and is an almost definite starter, so with odds of 11.0 to score first could be a really clever bet. The Czech’s need only draw this match to go through though so they could play for a bore draw so why not bet on their being no goals in the entire game if you can see both defences being too much for each other when they meet in Denmark have a bet on 0-0 10.0 on Victor Chandler.
