Game Spain vs. Belgium begins 19.06.2019 at 18:30 CET
The Spaniards knew that the first match will be very difficult since they played with the hosts, the Italians. They were also aware that they would do a great job in the race for the semi-finals if they win and they started well the match. They took a lead early on after Ceballos scored and in those moments it seemed that will be able to control the match, but instead they felt apart and received three goals before the final whistle. We didn’t see the expected team, and surprises were Zubeldia and Ruiz in the midfield. The latter got injured and won’t play now, although we expect several more changes in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Spain: Simon – Aguirregabiria, Vallejo, Mere, Aaron – Merino, Ceballos – Soler, Fornals, Oyarzabal – Mayoral
All good what they achieved in the qualifiers, when they played almost without mistake, the Belgians spoiled at the beginning of the European U-21 Championship. Hint that something like that can happen were two defeats in last two friendlies, first to Denmark, and then to France in last test. The Belgians could console themselves that both those teams were very strong opponents, however, they lost to Poland the first round of the European Championship. The Belgians took a lead early on after Iseke scored but then they lost steam the Polse scored three goals. Cools only alleviate the defeat with his goal. Mangala and Mbenza were surprises in the team, and now Amuzu might get chance from the first minute.
Probable lineups Belgium: Jackers – Cools, Faes, Cobbaut, Amuzu – Mangala, Heynen – Lukebakio, Schrijvers, Mbenza – Iseka
Betting Pick: Spain vs. Belgium
Spain is European vice-champion but they are facing early elimination now so we expect from them to play in accordance with their individual quality. Belgium lost to Poland and they are aware that the defeat will most probably cost them dearly later on, which is why we believe the Belgians will fight till the bitter end.
Pick: Spain wins
