Old rivalries will be resurrected at the Stadion Miejski on Tuesday, as England take on Germany in the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals.
Having qualified in top spot after winning two and drawing one of their group matches, Aidy Boothroyd’s men are available at 2/1 (3.00) with dabblebet to maintain their strong form by coming out on top in Tychy.
Meanwhile, Die Mannschaft were forced to settle for second place after losing 1-0 to Italy in their final group game, but are 11/8 (2.38) favourites to bounce straight back with a victory that would earn them a place in the final.
Just one of the last six encounters between these sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them taking this one into extra-time after a deadlocked 90 minutes here.
As well as the long-standing rivalry between these two nations, they will have a fairly fresh knowledge of each other after coming together most recently in a friendly clash back in March.
The only goal of the game on that occasion went to Stefan Kuntz’s team in a narrow 1-0 victory, and it seems likely that Tuesday’s clash will prove equally hard-fought considering there is a place in the final at stake.
Having conceded just one goal apiece in their three fixtures in Poland so far, both teams are more than capable of keeping things tight at the back and waiting to the right opportunity to break the deadlock.
With neither manager likely to take any chances or leave themselves exposed in defence, odds of 19/20 (1.95) seem like excellent value on no more than one side finding the net in a tense encounter.
That bet would have paid out in four of England’s last five fixtures, as well as each of the previous seven in a row for Germany.
