In this post, betting tips and preview of Sweden-Portugal the final of the European Under 21 Championship 2015 hosted in Czech Republic.
SWEDEN - PORTUGAL
These teams confronted each other few days ago in a match ended 1-1.
The possibility to reach the qualification drawing that clash has conditioned the evolution of the game, not only in the last minutes when both teams played with a really low rhythm.
Anyway Portugal has showed to be stronger than the opponent. They have a good tactical organization, a very good defense and a great goalie.
Midfield is composed of two very skilled players, William Carvalho (Porto) and the offensive midfielder Bernardo Silva (AS Monaco).
Bernardo Silva is the player with more completed dribbling of this competition and this ability will be fundamental vs Sweden which will have a very defensive approach.
From a tactical perspective this match will be more tough than the semifinal played vs Germany which gave portuguese team a lot of spaces to be attacked counterattacking.
Sweden is weaker than Germany, but its defensive approach will probably create problems to portuguese offensive manouvers.
In our opinion a lot will depend by Bernardo Silva: if he is on shape, he will lead his team to the win.
SWEDEN U21: Carlgren; Lindelöf, Milošević, Helander, Augustinsson; Tibbling, Lewicki, Hiljemark, Khalili; Guidetti, Kiese Thelin.
PORTUGAL U21: Sá; Esgaio, Paulo Oliveira, Tobias Figueiredo, Raphael; William Carvalho, Sérgio Oliveira, João Mário, Bernardo Silva; Cavaleiro, Ricardo.
