Moise Kean, Luka Jović and Ianis Hagi expected to shine for their countries.

<p>The Euro U21 is the perfect opportunity for the young players to develop, to gain experience as they are playing a high-level tournament against other talented players from the top clubs in Europe. It’s also a great opportunity for all the teams in Europe to send their scouts and watch the top young players in action. There are three groups of four teams; each of the group winners plus the best runner-up progress to the semi-finals.</p><table align="center" border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width:400px"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:400px;float:left" /></a></td> </tr> </tbody></table><p> </p><div><h2>Italy U21 vs Spain U21</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Sunday, June 16, at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara (Bologna)</strong></a></p><p>Italy’s coach Luigi Di Biagio has named an all-star squad for the tournament with Moise Kean (Juventus), Patrick Cutrone (AC Milan), Federico Chiesa (Fiorentina) and Nicolo Zaniolo (AS Roma) among the other players. Italy are hosting the tournament together with San Marino and will play their 1st match on Sunday against Spain U21. Spain and England are joint favourites to lift the trophy being priced at 5.5 with Bet365. Spain have enjoyed a great qualification campaign winning 9 from their 10 fixtures, scoring 31 goals and conceding just 10 in the process. Dani Ceballos, player of the tournament 2 years ago, a player with 6 international caps, once again features together with his teammates from Real Madrid Jesús Vallejo and Borja Mayoral. Despite their poor head-to-head record against Spain, Italy should have enough to find the back of the net in front of their fans. We expect an entertaining match with goals from both sides.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Euro U21 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score at 1.9 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p><h2>Serbia U21 vs Austria U21</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Monday, June 17, at Stadio Nereo Rocco (Trieste)</strong></a></p><p>Luka Jović is one of the biggest stars of the tournament. He scored 17 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt last season in Bundesliga plus 10 in Europa League. His transfer to Real Madrid is worth around 60m euros with 30% of the fee being paid by Real Madrid to Eintracht Frankfurt will go to Benfica. Another player to watch is Benfica’s midfielder Andrija Živković who won the Portuguese league last season. Austria enter this tournament with an experienced squad Kevin Danso (Augsburg), Philipp Lienhart (Freiburg), Stefan Posch (Hoffenheim), Xaver Schlager (Salzburg) and Hannes Wolf (Salzburg), who despite having senior caps to their names will travel to help their national U21 team. The 2 teams already played against each other in the qualifying campaign with Serbia winning 4 points in 2 matches. The hosts have a rock-solid defense conceding just 5 goals in 10 qualification matches. We expect them to shine and win their Euro U21 opener as they are fighting for a semi-final position.</p><p><a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Euro U21 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Serbia U21 to win at 1.72 with Pinnacle</strong></em></a></p><h2>Romania U21 vs Croatia U21</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Tuesday, June 18, San Marino Stadium (Serravalle)</strong></a></p><p>Romania U21 are ready to show that the amazing qualification to Euro U21 was not a mistake. They are fully packed with talented player coming from Gheorghe Hagi’s brilliant academy, but they also have experienced players in their squad who already played for the big team. Unfortunately for them, their leader Razvan Marin will miss this competition. The Romania international joined the Eredivisie giants Ajax for a fee of €12.5 million and his new club is not willing to let him join his teammates in Italy and San Marino. On the other side, Croatia are scoring goals for fun having a great attacking firepower. Duje Ćaleta Car (Lyon), Nikola Vlašić (CSKA Moscow), Alen Halilović (Standard Liège) and Josip Brekalo (Wolfsburg) are among their top players to have been selected. This is the most important match for sides are they are drawn in a group with 2 great European forces, France and England, so they will both try to win and keep their semi-finals hopes alive.</p><p><a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Euro U21 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.1 with Betfair.</strong></em></a></p><p> </p></div>
