Venezuela – Argentina
After a qualification with many emotions in the quarter-finals, Argentina will now try to play that spectacular football with which they conquered their fans and try to get a victory against Venezuela. The presence of Argentina in this phase of the competition is due to the victory that the team coached by Lionel Scaloni obtained in the last game in the group when he defeated with a 2-0 score the national from Qatar.
This is the only victory of the ” La Albiceleste” at this Copa America edition, and Argentina will meet in this match a difficult opponent who has not suffered a defeat at this tournament. Venezuela does not have many stars like Argentina and the team play is more homogeneous and will try to offer as few chances to score opponents. Argentina has so far relied heavily on Lionel Messi’s contribution, but the captain of the La Albiceleste did not stand up to expectations and can make a difference in this confrontation if it evolves to the maximum potential.
The two opponents met in a friendly match played in March, then Venezuela won by 3-1, but today’s stake in the game will make Argentineans evolve with more motivation. In conclusion, for a 1.55 odds, we invite you to bet on a victory for Argentina that will bring its semi-final qualifiers as well.
Germany U21 – Romania U21
One of the biggest surprises in this edition of the European Championship Under21 is the national of Romania, a team that has often confused the betting plans and will meet this evening the team of Germany. The differences between the two opponents are immense, Germany has been seen as a favorite since the start of this tournament, while Romania was considered a sure victim in Group C, which included Croatia, France and England.
However, the players prepared by Mirel Radoi managed to finish on the first position after two victories in the first two matches and a draw against France. Germany also finished the group stage with 7 points, but the Germans had more experience from the previous tournaments, we remember that Germany squad won the 2017 edition that was organized in Poland. Coach Stefan Kuntz will count in this semifinal on Luca Waldschmidt, Mahmoud Dahoud, Arne Maier or Jonathan Tah.
The last meeting between the two teams took place in the preliminaries of European Championship 2015, and that game ended with a clear victory for Germany with the score of 8-0. Probably the score difference in this semifinals will not be as big, but for a 1.50 odds it is worth relying on another success of the German national because the difference in value between the two squads is too great to witness another surprise from Romania.
Nigeria – Guinea
Group B is one of the most balanced groups in the African Cup, after the first series of matches, Nigeria ranks first after a victory against Burundi, and Guinea and Madagascar ended with a 2-2 draw. Under these circumstances, Nigerians can secure their qualification in the next phase if they are able to defeat Guinea today in a match to be held in Alexandria.
National squad of Nigeria is considered one of the favorites to win this competition, having already won 3 trophies most recently won in 2013. We should remember that Nigeria is one of the African nationals who are constantly participating in the World Championships and which offers some of the best players on the black continent. The current team coach, Gernot Rohr, is counting on Alex Iwobi from Arsenal London, Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal and captain John Mikel Obi who can use his experience to bring another victory to the Nigerian nation.
On the other side, Guinea will depend a lot on Naby Keita, the 24-year-old midfielder won this year UEFA Champions League with Liverpool and is the most valuable football player in Guinea. Still, football is a team game, and Nigeria has more advantages in this confrontation, so gamblers should take advantage of the 1.80 odds given to a Nigerian success.
Cameroon – Guineea-Bissau
Today, we will invite the bettors to focus their attention on the match between Cameroon and Guinea-Bissau, two teams that will meet on the Ismaila stadium in the first round of Group F of the African Nations Cup. Cameroon is considered one of the favorites to win this competition, and gamblers should be aware that Cameroon’s national team has won 5 times this trophy.
The most recent success was recorded in the latest edition of 2017, and now the Cameroonian team has enough valuable players to hope for another trophy. This national team is coached by Clarence Seedorf, a highly experienced technician who has evolved in his career as a player at Ajax Amsterdam, AC Milan or Real Madrid. The captain of the Cameroon team is Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who evolves for the champion of France, PSG, but next to him is Karl Toko Ekambi from Villarreal, Andre Zambo Anguissa from Fulham or goalkeeper Andre Onana who evolves for Ajax Amsterdam.
In the opponents’ formation there are not so well-known players, so there is a big difference in quality between the teams of the two national teams. Considering all these aspects, for a 1.60 odds bet, we should count on the success of the Cameroonians in the first game of this edition of the African Cup.
Croatia U21 – England U21
The last match of the Under21 European Championship for Croatian and English nationals will be a great opportunity for bettors to increase their revenue, and the most important aspects of the two teams will be presented for you. Both teams suffered two defeats in the matches with France and Romania and there is no longer any mathematical chance to qualify in the semifinals. Basically, the two national teams have been eliminated since the previous round and the game today will not have such a great pressure.
However, we must expect the English to dominate the game because the team coached by Aidy Boothroyd is largely composed of footballers who have managed to win the World Cup under the age of 20, a tournament that was organized two years ago in South Korea. We also have to mention that many of the members of the English team are evolving for the strongest clubs in the Premier League and this should motivate them to get at least 3 points for this European Championship edition. The two opponents also met in the European Championship qualifying campaign in 2014, England managing to win both games, so for a 1.70 odds stake, bettors should rely on English success against Croatia.
Denmark U21 – Serbia U21
Denmark’s last qualifying chance in the Under 21 European Championship semi-finals will be played tonight on Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste, where the Danes will meet Serbia’s national team in a game that can also bring profit to the gamblers. Denmark got 3 points in the match with Austria, the team with the same number of points, while Germany ranks first in the group with the maximum points after the two rounds.
Denmark hopes to gain 3 points in the match against Serbia, and in order to have a chance to be present in the next stage of the competition Austria should not beat Germany in the other match of the group. The team morale in Serbia is quite low after the two failures and we must not forget that in the last direct game Denmark won with 2-0 at the European Championship in 2015. Serbia scored one goal in the previous two games and it is a bit they probably will have a very offensive attitude today.
We will also point out that many of the Danish players are evolving into strong clubs in Europe and the experience they have gained may be decisive in this match, so for a 1.65 odds we recommend betting on the victory of the Danish national, which is also the most predictive bet of the day.
Spain U21 – Poland U21
Renato Dall’Ara Stadium in Bologna will be the venue for a very exciting match in Group A of the European Under 21 Championship, and in this confrontation Spain and Poland will try to qualify for the semifinals of the competition. At the moment, Poland was surprisingly ranked first in the group table, after a victory with Belgium followed a completely unexpected success against the hosts of the tournament, Italy.
Thus, the Poles have 6 points and need an equal result to be sure of the first position in the group regardless of the result that will be recorded in the match between Italy and Belgium. The Spanish team also hope to qualify if they will win today a big difference in score to give them a higher goal over Italy. However, Poland has shown in this tournament that it is an inconvenient adversary and can pose problems for the Spain even if the Polish footballers are not so valuable.
Poland’s good results are mainly due to the very efficient organization of coach Jerzy Brzeczek, and in today’s game we must expect the Poles to be very careful in the defensive. Spain remains the favorite to win, but for a 1.60 odd we propose to bet on the under 3.5 goals scored which can be won regardless of the team that will qualify in the next phase.
