Live on Skysports 1: Sat 19.00: Spain are big favs to win the Euro U21 Champs but Switzerland could make a real nuisance of themselves.
The Spanish U21 side have a chance to emulate their senior counterparts on Saturday by winning the youth version of the European Championships, Coral making them 2/7 favourites against Switzerland to lift the trophy, while Paddy Power rate the Spanish at 4/7 to win in ninety minutes.
Switzerland, 5/1 with Ladbrokes over ninety minutes, will certainly have to be on top form to prevail but their main weapon will lie in defence and one fact that can’t be ignored is the Swiss U21 side are yet to concede a goal at the tournament.
After three clean sheets in the groups and another in the semis, the Swiss look a really compact unit, captain and goalkeeper Yann Sommer marshalling his troops well. Another Swiss clean sheet looks good value at 5.5 (9/2) with Betdaq while a 0-0 stalemate should not be ruled out at 8/1 (William Hill). Indeed, two goals or less would seem a prudent way to go at 8/11 with Partybets.
The Swiss are 11/8 with Paddy Power to register either a win or a draw over ninety minutes, another good value proposition if they can keep the Spanish at bay, as Belarus so very nearly did in the semi finals.
