England U21 v Romania U21 betting preview
England are chasing the final spot in the semi-finals as the best runners-upAfter their loss to France last Tuesday, England Under-21s need to claim all three points on Friday to keep alive their hopes of making the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championships. Even two wins from their final two games may not be enough. The Three Lions were 1-0 up until the 89th-minute against Les Blues but conceded two late goals, including an own-goal from Aaron Wan Bissaka. They are winless in the last three outings (D1 L2) and have failed to keep a cleen sheet in the last 5 matches. As to direct encounters, the Young Lions hold a W3 D2 L1 record against Romania.
Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury is suspended after his red card against France. Aaron Wan-Bissaka had a nightmare against France and could drop out of the team for Jonjo Kenny. The rest of the backline will remain unchanged, with Jay Dasilva, Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori completing the back four. Manager Aidy Boothroyd may ponder other changes, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Tammy Abraham in contention to start up front and Harvey Barnes likely starter on the wing. Kieran Dowell will replace Choudhoury in the middle of the park, flanked by James Maddison.
Romania will be high on confidence after a stunning opening matchRomania thrashed Croatia 4-1 on Tuesday and are top of Group C at the moment. They have made a real statement of intent with that result as they already went into this tournament buoyed by an impressive qualifying campaign, which saw them take four points apiece off Portugal, Wales and Switzerland, as well as beating Bosnia and Herzegovina twice. They are are currently on an eleven match undefeated streak of form and have won their last five on the bounce. Plus, Romania U21 hit the back of the net at least twice in each of their last five games played.
Manager Mirel Radoi has no reason to make any changes. As a result, George Puscas will retain his berth as lone striker. Ianis Hagi (son of Romania’s greatest ever player Gheorghe) stole the show in the first game and will start as number ten, flanked by Andrei Ivan and Dennis Man. The likes of tudor Baluta and Alexandre Cicaldau will anchor the midfield, while the four man backline will be probably formed by Florin Bogdan Stefan and Cristian Manea as full backs, Ionut Nedelcearu and Alex Pascanu as centre backs.
