Portugal and Spain have been European powerhouses in international football and their U-21 sides were the pre-tournament favorites. Portugal were the runners-up in the 2015 U-21 UEFA European Championship.
Portugal defeated Serbia 2-0 in their first game while Spain decimated Macedonia in a 5-0 victory.
The U-21 European Championship has long been heralded as the tournament where the rising superstars of the next generation of footballers get to showcase their talent, with the likes of Marco Asensio, Renato Sanches who are already established footballers competing with the likes of Tammy Abraham who are en route to have breakout seasons.
Portugal U-21 Possible Starting Lineup: Joel Pereira, Joao Cancelo, Edgar Le, Ruben Semedo, Kevin Rodrigues, Renato Sanchez, Ruben Neves, Bruno Fernandez, Iuri Medeiros, Goncalo Guedes, Bruma.
Spain U-21 Possible Starting Lineup: Kepa, Hector Bellerin, Jorge Mere, Jesus Vallejo, Jose Gaya, Denis Suarez, Marcos Llorente, Saul Niguez, Gerard Deulofeu, Sandro Ramirez, Marco Asensio.
“If you look at us player by player the individual quality is incredible. I think the feelings after the first game are very positive for the whole group, knowing that Macedonia were not an easy opponent.
We know Portugal well and know it’ll be a very difficult game. More than a game, tomorrow will be like a final for us.”
– Denis Suarez, Spain.
According to Portugal U21 vs Spain U21 H2H Stats, Portugal have won two and lost one of the three previous meetings between these two nations at the U-21 level.
All eyes will be on Marco Asensio who scored a hattrick in Spain’s previous game while Portugal’s hopes rest on the talented midfield trio of Bruno Fernandez, Ruben Neves and Renato Sanches.
A 2-1 win for Spain is the most probable result.
