On Saturday, June 24, as part of the 2nd round of the group stage of the European U21 Championship, the Portuguese national team will meet with the Dutch national team. On Wednesday evening, Rui Jorge's team suffered a sensational defeat from the tournament hosts, Georgia, with a score of 2:0, while the Dutch drew a scoreless tie with Belgium. Estimated Lineups: Portugal: Biai; Carlos, Amaro, Penetra, Tavares; Neves, Dantas, Almeida; Conceicao, Araujo, Neto.Netherlands: Verbruggen; Rensch, Van Hecke, Van de Ven, Hartman; Timber, Gravenberch; Ekkelenkamp, Taylor, Summerville; Brobbey. Stadium: The match will take place in Tbilisi at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium. Portugal: Portugal, which lost to Germany in a penalty shootout in the final of the last Euro, is again one of the favorites to win the competition despite never having won it before. However, the southerners' starting game against the tournament hosts, Georgia, turned into a nightmare. Trailing by two goals at half-time, the Portuguese failed to recover from a 2:0 score and found themselves in a difficult position in the tournament table despite dominating the game in all indicators. This defeat also ended the national team's 15-match scoring streak. "Selecao" easily took first place in their qualifying group, ahead of Iceland, Greece, Belarus, Cyprus, and Liechtenstein. The young Lusitanians also boosted their confidence in two friendly matches against Romania (0:2) and Norway (3:0) in March. Portugal is undoubtedly one of the most competitive teams in the tournament. They can rely on goalkeeper Soares (Benfica), defender Nuno Tavares (Marseille), midfielders Dantas (PAOK), Andre Almeida (Valencia), Sousa (Porto), and Costa (Lens), as well as forwards Francisco Conceicao (Ajax, 3 goals), Araujo (Watford, 7 goals in 11 matches), Fabio Silva (PSV Eindhoven, 6 goals in 11 matches), and Vitinho (Marseille, 3 goals in 6 matches). Fabio Vieira (Arsenal) is a true star of this team, having hit the net 14 times in 23 matches for the youth team. On the other hand, Goncalo Ramos, who played an important role in the qualifying campaign and scored 12 goals, is not in the squad. Defender Tomas Araujo will be disqualified after being sent off in the match against Georgia on Wednesday evening, and defender Ze Carlos will miss the match due to an injury suffered in the second half. Netherlands: After missing three tournaments in a row, the Netherlands loudly declared themselves again in 2021, reaching the semi-finals, where, however, they lost to the future winners - Germany. The "Tulips" started the tournament on Wednesday against their neighbors, the Belgians, but couldn't score (0:0). Having made six saves that day, the team's goalkeeper Verbruggen was named "Man of the Match". Now, Erwin van de Looi's team leads Belgium in the table only due to disciplinary points - the Dutch received two yellow cards in the first round, while the "Red Devils" received three. During the qualifying tournament, the Oranje took the 1st place in their group, surpassing Switzerland, Moldova, Wales, Bulgaria, and Gibraltar without a single loss. Finally, in March, the visitors dealt with Norway (3:0) and drew with the Czech Republic in friendly matches (1:1). The Dutch also have a number of interesting players who are well known to the general public. Left-back Bakker (Bayer Leverkusen), defenders Maatsen (Burnley), van de Ven (Wolfsburg), and van Hecke (Brighton), forwards Summerville (Leeds), and Dallinga (Toulouse) were included in the squad for the tournament. The Oranje also have Ekkelenkamp (Royal Antwerp), who scored 7 goals in 17 matches, and Joshua Zirkzee (Bologna), who scored 7 times in 14 matches, available in attack. Right back Rensch, who was injured in the match against Belgium, will definitely not play on Saturday. Head-to-head meetings: These teams have met each other eight times. In the last match, which took place in November 2020, Portugal won with a score of 2:1. Forecast for the Portugal - Netherlands match: The sensational defeat from Georgia leaves the Portuguese in the role of pursuers, and another failure could lead to an early departure from the tournament. The Netherlands, of course, have the right to make a mistake, but in that case, the fate of reaching the quarterfinals will no longer be in their hands. The Oranje may be less experienced than their opponents, but they have a long 16-match unbeaten streak, so I'm betting on a draw. Total Forecast: In six out of eight head-to-head meetings between these teams, both sides scored so it will be on Saturday. Corner Forecast: Given the number of attacks and shots on goal, a plethora of corners is inevitable - I bet on the total over 9.5 corners. Yellow Card Forecast: The game is unlikely to be rich in warnings, as no one will want to miss the third round due to disqualification. I bet on the total yellow cards under 4.5. Score Forecast: I expect a lot of goals from the match and bet on the exact score 2:2.

On Saturday, June 24, as part of the 2nd round of the group stage of the European Under-21 Championship, the Georgia national team will meet with the national team of Belgium. The hosts, playing at home, occupy the 1st place in the group, whereas the Tricolors need to take all three points to keep their chances of reaching the playoffs. Projected Lineups: Georgia: Mamardashvili; Khvadagiani, Gelashvili, Kalandadze, Sazonov, Tsitaishvili; Mekvabishvili, N. Gagnidze; Moistsrapishvili; Davitashvili, GaguaBelgium: Vandevoordt; Siquet, Debast, De Winter, De Cuyper; Vranckx, Keita, Matazo; De Ketelaere; Openda, Balikwisha Stadium: The match will take place in Tbilisi at the Dinamo Arena. Georgia: Georgia, which, along with Romania, is hosting the tournament, has taken advantage of this status and is participating in the final part of the Euro Under-21 for the first time. In the first match, the hosts had to work hard when they met one of the main favorites - Portugal - in the middle of the week. And, despite the clear superiority in class and experience of the opponent, the team pulled off a real feat, winning 2:0. Now, Svanadze's wards occupy the first line in the group, and another success on Saturday will allow the hosts to reach the playoffs at the first attempt. The young "Crusaders" did not prepare very well for the continental championship, losing to Israel (1:2), and then drawing with Ukraine (1:1) in November last year. However, in the last meeting in March, the red and whites were able to regain some confidence, winning a minimal victory over Latvia (0:1). Unsurprisingly, the Georgian squad consists almost entirely of players unknown to the general public. However, defender Irakli Azarov (Red Star Belgrade), midfielder Georgy Moistrapishvili (Dinamo Tbilisi, 3 goals in 7 matches), and forward Georgy Guliashvili (Sarajevo, 6 goals in 14 matches) make up the backbone of the team. On Wednesday evening, the heroes were central defender Sabo Sazonov of Dynamo Moscow and forward Gagua, who scored goals against Portugal. It is worth noting that the team's captain Anzor Mekvabishvili went onto the field on Wednesday with an injury, and he will need additional examination before the second round. Georgy Mamardashvili will definitely take his place in goal, and Zuriko Davitashvili will strengthen the game by coming off the bench in the second half. Belgium: Belgium is not yet among the best European U21 teams. Indeed, the guests have participated in only one tournament since 2007, in 2019, when they failed to advance beyond the group stage. On the other hand, the young "Red Devils" performed well in the qualifiers and took first place in their group, ahead of Denmark, Turkey, Scotland, and Kazakhstan, remaining undefeated. Jackie Matheijssen's wards played two friendly matches before the tournament, achieving satisfactory results against the Czech Republic (0:0) and Japan (3:0 victory). Unfortunately for them, the Belgians couldn't break the course of the match with the Dutch on Wednesday (0:0), with Dutch goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen making six saves. Now, the Tricolors will have to double their efforts to keep their chances of reaching the playoffs. Many of the players called up to the youth team play in the local first division. However, goalkeeper Delange (PSV), defenders Winter (Empoli), Van der Brempt (Red Bull Salzburg) and Al-Dakhil (Burnley), midfielders Matazo (Monaco), Vrancks (Milan), Raskin (Rangers) and Lavia (Southampton), and forward Ramazani (Almeria, 2 goals in 4 appearances) have already managed to showcase their talents abroad. The same can be said about captain De Ketelaere, who plays for Milan. Initially called up to the main squad, Lois Openda, who scored 7 goals in the qualifying tournament, took part in the first match with the Dutch, though he couldn't significantly influence the result. Head-to-Head: This will be the first head-to-head meeting between the teams. Georgia - Belgium match forecast: Belgium needs a win to have any chance of making the playoffs, while the Georgians pulled off a real feat on Wednesday and will be inspired by the support of their stands. Of course, the guests have a far more skillful squad however, the "Crusaders" have already proven that they are not "pushovers". I bet on the handicap of the red and whites +1.5. Total forecast: In seven of the last eight official matches involving Belgium, at least one team failed to score. Moreover, in the last three matches involving the Tricolors, the second halves were more successful than the first ones. I believe that the game may unfold precisely in the second 45-minute period, so we bet on "the second half is more productive than the first". Corner forecast: In the match against the Dutch, Belgium took 11 corners now, when they have to attack from the first minutes against a defensive opponent, we should expect no fewer corners. Yellow card forecast: It's unlikely that the game will be rich in warnings I predict the total yellow cards less than 4.5. Score forecast: Georgia has already performed well in this tournament, but the Belgians are higher in class I'll bet on the exact score 1:1.

On Thursday, June 22, as part of the 1st round of the group stage of the European Championship for players under 21, the French team will face the Italian national team. Both teams sensationally got knocked out in the quarterfinals two years ago, so they now hope to achieve more. Predicted line-ups France:Meslier; Kalulu, Lukeba, Bade, Larouci; Caqueret, Kone, Thuram; Cherki, Kalimuendo, Gouiri.Italy:Carnesecchi; Pirola, Lovato, Okoli; Bellanova, Bove, Tonali, Ricci, Udogie; Cancellieri, Colombo. Stadium The match will take place in Cluj at the Cluj Arena. France In recent years, the French team has not particularly shone in the European Championships among young players under 23, not even reaching the final. After missing consecutive continental championships from 2007 to 2017, Les Bleus made a notable run in 2019, reaching the semifinals, but got knocked out in the quarterfinals in 2021. In the qualifying tournament, Sylvain Ripoll's charges were invincible and easily took 1st place in their group, ahead of Ukraine, Serbia, Faroe Islands, North Macedonia, and Armenia. However, the recent games of the French youth team have not been convincing: a heavy defeat from England with a score of 4:0 and a draw with Spain 0:0 in March. Last week, Les Tricolores barely managed to overcome Mexico with a score of 1:0. Sylvain Ripoll has once again put his faith in players, some of whom have already shown themselves at the senior level. Among them are goalkeepers Meslier (Leeds) and Chevalier (Lille), both of whom are the main goalkeepers in their clubs, as well as stellar defenders: Kalulu (Milan), Lukeba (Lyon), Bade (Seville), Nkunku (Saint-Etienne) and Simakan (Leipzig). In the midfield, the French can rely on dependable half-backs like Caqueret (Lyon), Hefren Thuram (Nice), Le Fe (Lorient) Kone (Borussia Monchengladbach), Shotar and Olise (Crystal Palace). Finally, Les Bleus have a handful of attacking talents: Gouiri and Kalimuendo from "Rennes", the very promising Cherki (Lyon), Adli (Bayer Leverkusen), Vahi (Montpellier) and Barcola (Lyon). Initially called-up Merlen (Nantes) got injured, as did Boy (Galatasaray), Truffert (Rennes) and Malo Gusto (Lyon), while Benoit Badiashile (Chelsea), Fofana (Chelsea), Camavinga (Real Madrid), and Aurelien Tchouameni (Real Madrid) did not make the squad. Italy Five-time winners of the European Championship among players under 23, the Italians have not lifted the trophy since 2004. However, unlike the French, they have participated in the last five youth continental championships. In 2019 they were knocked out in the first round, and in the previous Euros their journey ended in the quarterfinals. To qualify for the 2023 tournament, the 'Azzurrini' finished 1st in their qualifying group, ahead of Ireland, Sweden, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Luxembourg, achieving 7 victories and 3 draws. The Southerners gained confidence in March, triumphing over Serbia (0:2) and Ukraine (3:1) in friendly matches. Many players in the final squad represent Serie A clubs. Among them are goalkeeper Carnesecchi (Cremonese), defenders Bellanova (Inter), Lovato (Salernitana), Okoli (Atalanta), Scalvini (Atalanta), and Udogie (Udinese). In midfield, the 'Nazionale' have at their disposal: Rovella (Monza), Ricchi (Torino), Tonali (Milan), Bove (Roma), and Miretti (Juventus). Finally, forwards Colombo (Lecce), Pellegri (Torino), and Kean (Lazio) will compete for a place in attack. Team coach Nicolato must decide whether to include Giorgio Scalvini and Wilfried Gnonto in the lineup following their recent appearances for the senior team. Head-to-head meetings The last time these teams met was in a friendly match in May 2018. No winner was determined then the match ended in a 1:1 draw. Match prediction France Italy Both teams went undefeated in the qualifying tournament and are the main favourites for the upcoming Euros. Moreover, France and Italy brought strong squads, some players recently played for their senior national teams. Considering how important it is not to give way to the main contender for advancement to the playoffs, I'll risk betting on a draw. Prediction for the total Italy scored eight goals and conceded as many in their last five matches, while the French could not score more than 1 goal in four consecutive matches. It's unlikely they will do this against the compactly defending Southerners - I bet on the home team's individual total of less than 1.5. Prediction for the corners We should not expect overly open play, given that this is just the first round teams are only gaining form. I'm betting on total corners less than 9.5. Prediction for the yellow cards The game is unlikely to be rich in warnings I anticipate the total number of yellow cards to be less than 4.5. Prediction for the score Most likely, the teams will end the match in a 1:1 draw.
