Germany's bid for victory in the Under-21 European Championships kicks off with a clash against Czech Republic on Sunday evening.
The Germans were crowned as champions in this competition eight years ago and that triumph provided a platform to greater success, for key members of that squad went on to win the World Cup for their country in 2014.
As such, there is no doubt that Stefan Kuntz's side value the importance of this competition and the Germans look poised to make another credible challenge for the crown this summer. dabblebet go 16/5 (4.20) that Germany secure the silverware in Poland, with 10/11 (1.91) that Kuntz's side come out on top in Group C.
Italy, the most successful nation in the history of this competition, are chalked up as 15/2 (8.50) to secure a sixth title, while Luigi Di Biagio's charges can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to take top spot in Group C - given their remarkable record in the competition, that price may well prove popular with punters.
Denmark, beaten by eventual winners Sweden at the semi-final stage four years ago, will be hoping to repeat their run to the knockout stages and Niels Frederiksen's side can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to take top spot in the section.
Attaining that objective, however, is sure to be a tough assignment and if the Danes are to do well in this competition, they cannot afford to lose to the Italians in their opening fixture on Sunday evening.
Czech Republic are regarded as the 6/1 (7.0) outsiders of four in this section and Vitezslav Lavicka's men will certainly need to exceed expectations if they are to guarantee themselves a place in the final four of the competition by winning Group C.
Germany are deservedly favourites to take top spot in the group. Kuntz's men have won 14 of their last 16 matches and another golden German generation is hungry to make their mark in this competition.
Italy look best placed to contest supremacy in the section with Kuntz's charges, but Di Biagio's team have won just two of their last nine matches and they may be lacking in confidence ahead of this weekend's curtain-raiser against Denmark. The Danes, themselves, suffered heavy defeats against both England and Spain respectively back in March and they, too, could well come up short when it counts.
As such, Germany appear to offer excellent value at 10/11 (1.91) to top Group C and that price could well provide punters with a path to profit ahead of the competition's kick-off.
