England U21 vs Germany U21 Betting Preview
England U21 secured their place in the last eight with a game to spare last Sunday, having earned back-to-back 2-0 victories over Czech Republic and Israel respectively. Not only are England through to the quarter-finals, but they have also secured top spot, three points clear of second-placed Czech Republic with head-to-head the first tiebreaker. Furthermore, Lee Carsley's men can now knock the defending champions out should they make it three from three.
Germany U21 were tagged as favorites in both UEFA U21 Championship matches but they have struggled both against Israel (1-1 draw with two failed penalties) and Czech Republic (a 2-1 defeat). With one points from the first two games, they can only qualify to the next stage by beating England here, hoping that Czech Republic lose at the hands of Israel. Moreover, Antonio di Salvo's men will also need to at least match Israel’s margin of victory.
England and Germany have locked horns 11 times so far at Under 21 levels and the score is tied at 4-4 with 3 draws. The most recent direct encounter was won by England U21 3-1 in September 2022.
England U21 are slightly underdogs here. Lee Carsley's men are 7/4 to beat the Germany team with BetVictor.
Germany U21 can be backed at 6/4 (with Ladbrokes) with the draw currently available at 13/5 (with Bet365).
England U21 (4-2-3-1): Rushworth; Aarons, Harwood-Bellis, Branthwaite, Thomas; Skipp, Ramsey; Elliott, Palmer, Smith Rowe; Archer
Manager Lee Carsley could rotate his side and rest some of his key players ahead of the knockout stages. Jacob Ramsey is expected to feature form the off after scoring in the opening match and beingbenched last time out. Max Aarons also missed against Israel due to illness and he will probably retun in the knockout stage. Elsewhere, there could be further rotation, with James Garner, Curtis Jones, Anthony Gordon and Levi Colwill all potentially rested. Cole Palmer and Cameron Archer are expected to start as offensive midfield and lone striker respectively.
Germany U21 (4-3-1-2): Atubolu; Vagnoman, Bisseck, Matriciani, Netz; Krauss, Martel, Stiller; Huseinbasic; Schade, Moukoko
Germany will likely play with a 4-3-1-2 starting system in which Dortmunds' starlet Youssoufa Moukoko (who was surprisingly benched over the weekend) and Brentford's Kevin Schade will lead the line. As a result Jessic Ngakam will make way. Denis Huseinbasic will play as number ten while the likes of Tom Krauss, Angelo Stiller and Eric Martel will start in the middle of the park. At the back, Yann Bisseck and Henning Matriciani will be paired at the heart, with Luca Netz and Josha Vagnoman starting as full backs.

Our England U21 vs Germany U21 Predictions
England have yet to concede in this tournament while Germany have lacked in ruthlesness in both their two outings so far, missing two penalties and several clear goal chances.
The Young Lions have already secured an early exit from the group, so the mentor will definitely save the leading players.
This could certainly favour the Germans, who will give their best to escape this group.
As a consequence, we back Germany to win or draw. The Correct Score could be a 2-1 Germany victory or a 1-1 draw.
The Both Teams To Score options is also appealing while Youssoufa Moukoko is our pick in the anytime goalscorer market.
