England U21 v Slovakia U21 – U21 Euro 2017, 19th June
Well, the only positive from England’s opening game at the U21 Euros is that they didn’t lose. They faced up against reigning champions Sweden and were lucky to pick up a point as the Swedes missed a late spot-kick. The next task now for the Young Lions is trying to get the better of Slovakia who battled to a great win against hosts Poland in their opener. England really needs to get a win on the board in this one. England are 8/11 for the win, with the draw at 11/4 and Slovakia are 7/2.

England U21 v Slovakia U21 Betting Tips
This is not going to be an easy game for England’s Young Lions. If you saw the pace at which Slovakia attacked Poland in their opener you will understand why. England’s opening game against Sweden was a snoozefest and England only managed the one shot on target in the whole game and were rescued at the end by keeper Jordan Pickford who saved a spot kick. There has to be better to come, but it did highlight concerns that England were lacking something going forward. Now they have to really dig deep and pull out a win. Having seen Slovakia beat Poland, and only one team from the group guaranteed a place in the knockout stages, England have to come up with something.
There wasn’t a lot to carry forward from their first game as England were flat and pretty much did nothing with the ball. Up in the anytime goalscorer market, Tammy Abraham is a 5/4 punt with Nathan Redmond at 9/4. This will be England’s fourth meeting with Slovakia and their first since 2003. England won both games in qualifying for the 2004 finals against Slovakia. But, they have met once before in the Finals and Slovakia won that encounter 2-0. In the bet365 correct score market, the shortest priced option is an England 1-0 but a 1-1 is right there at 6/1. England have failed to get out of the group stage in the last three editions of the U21 Euros. Can they break that run? Defeat here would crush them and you are probably looking at a low scoring game under 2.5 goals.
Slovakia were good through qualification for the tournament and they fought back from a goal down against hosts Poland to pull off a shock on the opening night of the tournament. That’s something then for them to build on and if they win this game, then they will be starting at a place in the semi finals. That’s a huge incentive for them and they look quick, positive and hungry to get tackles in. Up in the anytime goalscorer market for them, there is Adam Zrelak at 9/4 and both teams not to score in the match at bet365 is a tempting quote of 10/11. based on the evidence of their respective performances, Slovakia are more than likely to have a real go at this, they don’t look as if they came here to make up the numbers.
Who will win – England U21 v Slovakia U21 Predictions
Draw: On the evidence of the first game, England look really jaded and poor. If they don’t have more gears to get up through then they are going to struggle to make an impact. Slovakia, who were good in qualification, are good enough to consolidate their opening win with a point.
