ENGLAND U21 v POLAND U21 BETTING PREVIEWEngland U21 come into this clash on a high after picking up a hugely important 2-1 victory over Slovakia on Monday, overturning a first-half deficit with Alfie Mawson and Nathan Redmond scoring after the break. They opened their Euro U21 Championship with a goalless draw against current title holders sweden, meanign that the Young Lions are three a point clear of Slovakia at the summit of the group and will seal top spot in Group A in case of victory over the hosts. Aidy Boothroyd's men have lost just two games in all competitions since June 2015.
England will rely on target man Tammy Abraham up front again while Jacob Murphy made a great impact after coming on against Slovakia and should feature from the off in the offensive midfield trio. Nathan Redmond, of course, will retain his spot as well as Lewis Baker, with Demarai Gray providing a further option out wide. Nathaniel Chalobah and James Ward-Prowse are likely to play in the middle of the park while the four man defense should be unchanged - Alfie Mawson and Calum Chambers as centre backs, Ben Chilwell and Mason Holgate as full backs.
Poland are rock bottom of Group A with just one point from their opening two games and are unlikely to qualify from here. They failed to take advantage of a first-minute strike when losing 2-1 to Slovakia and only managed to draw 2-2 against Sweden, courtesy of an injury-time penalty scored by Lech Poznan forward David Kownacki. Marcin Dorna’s men need to win while hoping that the other match in Group A between Sweden and Slovakia ends in a draw to have any chance of progressing. Poland have thrown away winning positions in both of their opening two matches at Euro 2017. Their defense is highly vulnerable as the Poles have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last four games.
The Poles may rely on creative midfielder Patryk Lipski for their own impetus in attacking areas. The Ruch Chorzow no. 10 will play in the middle of the park alongside Sampdoria Karol Linetty and Pawel Dawidowicz. Up front, Bartosz Kaputska and Dawid Kownacki will start out wide while Mariusz Stepinski will be the central striker.
