Strap yourself in, our pulsating preview is just the taster...
SLOVAKIA U21s V SWEDEN U21s
Thursday 22nd June | 19:45
As we mentioned above, this tie has the possibility of being a real treat, with both Slovakia and Sweden being in with a chance of topping the group. Sweden come into the group frustrated and possibly in the poorer state of mind. having outplayed Poland they fell behind to a goal which was rather against the run of play. However, the youngsters pulled their socks up and managed to get their noses in front, only to concede an equaliser in the dying moments of the game to come away with a draw. ot a bad result in itself, but it will be interesting to see just how much of a drain the effort and emotion will have on them.
Slovakia, meanwhile, gave Aidy Boothroyd's young cubs a real go and it was interesting to note just how comfortable they were going forward. Confident and mature in possesion, the speedy interchanges between their attacking players asked all sorts of questions of England's back line. The connundrum facing head coach Pavel Hapal is how to combine that natural attacking flair with some discipline at the back: they are yet to keep a clean sheet this tournament and they can not rely on their ability to outscore teams every game.
What We Sayin’?
Both teams want to win. Both teams are suspect defensively. Both teams like to attack. If that doesn't scream the goals market, then I'm a goldfish...! BTTS 4/7.
Both teams have scored in three of the four matches they've both played thus far, with three or more goals in those games. BTTS over 2.5 goals 4/77
