Poland U-21 v Sweden U-21 Betting: One side set to leave disappointed

ShareClose Comments
Both sides are looking for their first win in the tournament, but we think there is value is opposing goals at both ends when they meet on Monday

Following defeat in their opening Under-21 Euros game, hosts Poland find themselves already in a precarious position in Group A.

The Poles took the lead inside the first minute against Slovakia but we're pegged back to lose 2-1 and they go into Monday night's game against Sweden knowing that defeat will eliminate them.

The holders, for their part, played out a 0-0 draw against England in their opening match although having missed a penalty nine minutes from time, the holders would have been disappointed not to claim all three points.

Sweden, though, are favorites for the win in their second game with Paddy Power offering them at 6/4 (2.50) while Poland can be backed at 9/5 (2.80) and the draw is available at 23/10 (3.30)

These two sides met in a friendly back in 2015, playing out a 0-0 draw, and there is a temptation to oppose a high-scoring game once more. Sweden have failed to score in three of their last four games and with Poland knowing that a defeat sees them eliminated they will be set up to try and contain the holders.

Certainly, the bookmakers also believe that the goals are unlikely to flow with under 2.5 goals priced at just 4/6 (1.66) and under 3.5 goals in the game offered at 1/4 (1.25).

Those odds give us an idea that a game with few goals is expected although a more appealing option is opposing both teams to score at evens (2.00). This bet has paid out in five of the last six matches that Sweden have played and seems generously priced.

For those looking for a higher price, the odds of 10/3 (4.33) for the holders to win to nil could also be of interest with six of Sweden's last eight victories in all competitions coming without conceding a goal.
