- 5:00 pm: Israel U21 vs England U21
Israel U21 vs England U21 Betting PreviewIsrael secured their first UEFA European Under-21 Championships semi-final appearance - whilst also qualifying for next year’s Paris Olympics - by beating co-host Georgia 4-3 on penalties after a hard-fought 0-0 draw. They have proven to be a tough nut to crack. Despite managing only 37% of ball possession thorughout the tournament, Guy Luzon's men managed to dra 1-1 against Germany and beat Czech Republic courtesy of a last-gasp goal.
England survived several scares to edge past Portugal 1-0 in the quarter finals. The Young Lions have a 100% winning record so far at the European Championships and are yet to concede a goal in four matches. Lee Carsley's men beat 2-0 all their opponents during the group stages - Czech Republic, Germany and Israel. They are now odds on favorites to win the title this summer.
England have now won three of their four meetings with Israel, losing the other game at the 2013 edition. Goals from Aaron Gordon and Emile Smith Rowe either side of the half-time whistle propelled the Young Lions to a 2-0 win over the Crusaders during their group-stage encounter on June 25th.
Having already beaten their opponents in group stage, England U21 are huge favorite here. Lee Carsley's men are 2/5 to win in 90 minutes with ThePools.
Israel U21 can be backed at 19/5 (with Unibet) with the draw currently available at 17/2 (with Ladbrokes).
Israel U21 (4-4-2): Tzarfati; Jaber, Lemkin, Cohen, Revivo; Gloukh, Gandelman, Bar, Azoulay; Turgeman, Giorno
Left-back Roy Revivo is back from suspension but Eden Karzev will serve a one-match ban, so either Arad Bar or Yoav Hofmayster will feature from the off in the middle of the park. First-choice goalkeeper Daniel Peretz is also suspended, meaning that Under-19 Euros finalist Tomer Tzarfati should be given a shot in between the sticks. The likes of Dor Tugeman and Idan Giorno are expected to lead the line.
England U21 (4-4-2): Trafford; Garner, Colwill, Harwood-Bellis, Thomas; Madueke, Gomes, Jones, Smith Rowe; Gordon, Gibbs-White
Max Aarons and Ben Johnson will be unavailable due to suspension, leaving the Young Lions in somewhat of a predicament at full-back. James Garner will continue playing as righ-back while Charlie Cresswell and Lke Thomas are in contention for a starting berth on the opposite side. Harvey Elliott was unavailable against Portugal but should return for Wednesday's game. Jacob Ramsey was taken off injured on Sunday and the Aston Villa's midfielder is expected to make room for Emile Smith-Rowe.
Our Israel U21 vs England U21 Predictions
England have scored seven times without conceding any goals so far while Israel have scored only two goals so far during regular time in the competition.
The Young Lions looked superior in all departments in their first encounter and we expect thing remain unchanged after only two weeks.
Hence, we back England to beat again the Israeli team, with a 2-0 our pick in the correct score market.
Each of England’s last five matches have produced fewer than three goals in total and we back the Under 2.5 here too.
