England U21 vs Israel U21 Betting Preview
England got off to a strong start at the Euro U21 Championship, winning 2-0 against Czech Republic courtesy of second-half goals from Jacob Ramsey and Emile Smith Rowe. That result ended a run of two consecutive defeats having lost pre-tournament friendlies against Croatia (1-2) and Japan (0-2). A win for the Young Lions here would guarantee their place in the quarter finals of the competition for the first time since 2017, with a game to spare.
Israel, meanwhile, held on for a 1-1 draw against reigning champions Germany in their group opener on Thursday. A good result, considering they played the entirety of the second half with 10 men, with their goalkeeper Daniel Peretz also saving two penalties in the match. They are on a five-game winless streak and have drawn the last three. Prior to that, Guy Luzon’s side ended the qualifiers as a 2nd placed team with 19 points and advanced to the final tournament through playoffs as they beat Republic of Ireland 2-1 on penalties.
Sunday's game will mark the third meeting between the two nations in the last 12 years. Anyway, the most most recent matchup between these two sides came in the group stages of the 2013 U21 Euros which Israel won 1-0.
England U21 are clearly favorites here. Lee Carsley's men are 4/11 to beat the Israeli team with Coral.
Israel U21 can be backed at 19/2 (with BetVictor) with the draw currently available at 9/2 (with 10Bet).
England U21 (4-4-2): Trafford, Garner, Harwood-Bellis, Colwill, Aarons; Madueke, Jones, Gomes, Ramsey; Gibbs-White, Gordon
Emile Smith-Rowe was a scoring substitute against the Czechs and will be pushing for a first start of the tournament. James Garner looks set to feature from the off in an unfamiliar fullback role, with Max Aarons playing on the opposite site and Levi Colwill and Taylor Harwood-Bellis paired at the heart of the backline. Morgan Gibbs-White and Anthony Gordon will retain their berth upfront, as well as Noni Madueke out wide.
Israel U21 (5-4-1): Peretz; Jaber, Lemkin, Gandelman, Cohen, Revivo; Bilu, Bar, Azulay, Layous; Turgeman
Israel will be without Eden Kartsev, who received a red card on Thursday. FC Zurich man Arad Bar - who came on for the second half on Thursday - should now be introduced from the off. Oscar Gloukh was forcibly withdrawn with an apparent injury, so Hisham Layous and Idan Toklomati Jorno are in contention to start as offensive midfielder. Dor Turgeman, who scored the sides only goal against Germany, is expected to lead the line.

Our England U21 vs Israel U21 Predictions
England U21 have won seven of their last eight competitive matches and scored in 17 of their last 18 outings.
Isreal only managed 22% of ball possession against Germany and will be hard-pressed by Lee Carsley's men.
At the end of the day, the Young Lions should eventually find a way through to seal a spot in the quarter-finals.
We back England U21 to comfortably win 3-1, with Morgan Gibbs-White finding the back of the net.
