Germany To Break England's Hearts In The European U21 Championship Semi Final

There has been much talk of England's Under-21 side following in the steps of the Under-20 World Cup winners by going all the way at the European U21 Championship in Poland but Aidy Boothroyd's men are likely to come up short when they meet Germany in Tuesday's semi-final...

  • England have lost five of their past eight semi-finals at Under-21 level
  • Germany lost one of their four meetings with England at European Championship finals (won two, drawn one), including a 4-0 win in the 2009 final

The Story So Far

Boothroyd can be relatively pleased with what his side have achieved so far as they won a weak Group A courtesy of a 0-0 draw with Sweden followed by a 2-1 win against Slovakia and a 3-0 win over Poland.

The Young Lions now head to the Tychy Stadium to take on Germany and the English are slight underdogs at 9/4, while the Germans are 29/20 for the win with Betfair.

Germany qualified for this stage as the best runners-up as they beat Czech Republic 2-0 and Denmark 3-0 before losing 1-0 to Italy when qualification was virtually assured.

A Narrow German Win

Stefan Kuntz was disappointed with his team's display against Italy but expect an Under-21 side that has won 16 of their past 19 matches at this level to be focused for a clash with their old rivals England.

The Germans beat England 1-0 when they met in a friendly in March of this year and there will be plenty of familiar faces meeting this week as eight of the German starting eleven from that game have started every game in Poland this month, while ten of England's thirteen players involved in that friendly are involved on Tuesday.

Germany completely outclassed England in that 1-0 friendly win and we are going to back them to win by a one goal margin again (3/1 with Paddy Power), with seven of England's last eight defeats coming by a margin of one goal.

Take It To The Max

Max Arnold ran the show when these teams met three months ago and the Wolfsburg starlet is 4/1 to score at anytime (Betfred) after notching five in his last nine competitive starts for Germany's Under-21 side. Arnold can inspire the Germans to victory over England, who are sweating on the fitness of Nathanial Chalobah and Nathan Redmond.
