Spain (under 21) will play at home with Ukraine (under 21) in the 1/2 finals of the playoffs of the European Youth Championship under 21. The match will take place on July 5.
The Spanish Under-21 team finished 1st in their group at Euro 2023. In three matches, the team scored 7 points, ahead of the Ukrainians by only one goal scored.
The main problem of young Spaniards is the low level of scoring chances. The team won the last match.
After extra time, Spain beat Switzerland 2-1 in the last match. In this meeting, the team will act with maximum dedication.
The national team of Ukraine under 21 has already accomplished a sporting feat. Moreover, the Ukrainians do not even think of slowing down. Their goals are obvious, and they seem to be really maximum.
Ukraine won again in the previous match. The young “yellow-blue” scored 3 goals against the French, conceding only 1.
The double was scored by midfielder Georgy Sudakov. And in general, the composition of the Ukrainians is very strong, and not only in name. Most likely, the Ukrainians will not sit on the defensive. The team led by Rotan has already shown what she is capable of.
