Spain U21 vs Ukraine U21

, KO: 19:45 Jun 27, 2023, Superbet Arena
Ukraine U21

It is a battle for supremacy in Group B of the European U21 Championships as Spain square off against Ukraine. Both teams have a 100% record so far in the competition and should serve up a closely fought encounter, but the Spaniards’ class and superior quality should give them the edge.

It has been an impressive U21 campaign for Spain as they have won their two matches so far in the competition. They began by swatting aside co-hosts Romania 3-0 before edging out a 1-0 victory over Ukraine in their second fixture.

Spain are known for their attacking quality and have already scored four goals in two matches at the continental tournament. However, their defence has really caught the eye in Romania as they are yet to concede a goal after two fixtures.

The Spaniards did not just kick into high gear in this competition as they have been in good form for a while. Santi Denia’s men are unbeaten in their last 15 matches, claiming 13 wins that run which stretches back to September 2021.

Ukraine have also shown their quality in the competition and like the Spaniards, won their opening two matches. They began their campaign with a 2-0 victory over Croatia before picking up a 1-0 win over Romania last time out.

Another similarity with Spain is that Ukraine have also maintained their defensive discipline in the competition and are yet to concede a goal after two matches. However, Ruslan Rotan's men are second on the standings having scored fewer goals and need an outright win on Tuesday to finish top of the group.

Ukraine had also been in good form in the build-up to the competition and are now unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches. However, there have been only five wins in that run which has come against lower ranked teams, while were beaten 3-1 by Italy and also suffered a 3-2 defeat to Slovakia in that run.
