Our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides, who gave us two winners in La Rojita's last game, casts his eye over likely scorers in the Under-21 Euros final

Spain have reached the final of the Under-21 Euros thanks in large part to their sensational attacking play which has brought 12 goals for La Rojita in four matches.

Eight of those goals have been scored by just two players, with Saul Niguez and Marco Asensio netting five and three times respectively. The Spanish side's run to the final has been boosted by hat-tricks from their two outstanding players, with Asensio netting three times in the opening match against Macedonia and Saul scoring three against Italy in the semi-final.

Indeed, the latter has scored in all three matches he has featured in with the Atletico Madrid man breaking the deadlock on all three occassions. Paddy Power offer him at 8/1 (9.00) to score first for a fourth time at the tournament while he can also be backed at 13/5 (3.60) to score at anytime.

Asensio is also offered at similarly healthy odds, with the Real Madrid player priced at 7/1 (8.00) to open the scoring and at 11/5 (3.20) to find the back of the net.

That they are priced so temptingly is down to the fact that neither of these players are strikers, with La Rojita's designated centre-forward Sandro Ramirez the shortest priced player to score at evens (2.00).

The former Barcelona youth has been excellent in this competition despite only netting once and the final would be fitting place for him to add to his tally, before finalising a move away from Malaga. 

While Saul claimed the headlines following his semi-final hat-trick, praise was also lavished upon Dani Ceballos as the 20-year-old produced a masterclass in midfield. The Real Betis talent has only ever scored twice for the U-21s, with both goals coming against Georgia in qualifying for this competition.

Despite that, his confidence is sky-high and he has previously shown his eye for goal in La Liga. Ceballos can also be backed at 8/1 (9.00) to score first and at 13/5 (3.60) to net at anytime.

For Germany, meanwhile, their attack has not looked quite as potent as their opponents' in Friday's final, though they did create plenty of chances to score in their semi-final against England.

David Selke is their top scorer in the competition with two strikes, although the newly signed Hertha Berlin forward boasts an excellent scoring record for the U-21s with nine goals in 11 appearances. The 22-year-old is available at 13/5 (3.60) to score at anytime - the same price as Felix Platte - and both German forwards could cause Spain some problems with their height.

Elsewhere, former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry will be looking to round off what has been a marvelous year for him with a big performance in Friday's final. The new Bayern Munich signing was one of the standout players as Germany reached the final of the Olympic football tournament in Rio last summer, before scoring 11 goals in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen.

He is also offered at 13/5 (3.60) to score while captain Max Meyer can be backed at 3/1 (4.00)
