The Serbia U21 vs. Spain U21 match will be played on Friday, June 23, at the Zdzislaw Krzyszkowiak Stadium, Bydgoszcz. This is the third round match of European U21 Championship group B, where Spain is currently first on the table with six points, while Serbia is currently third on the table with only one point.
These national teams met twice so far. Both matches were played in 2014, in the playoffs for European U21 Championship in the Czech Republic. In Serbia, we saw a goalless draw, while in Spain, Serbia celebrated a 2:1 victory and qualified for the European championship.
Serbia is, so far, the biggest disappointment in the tournament. This team won the title at last year's World U20 Championship, but many players apparently failed to flourish in the recently finished season. Portugal is a strong team, and 2:0 defeat against them weren't regarded as a disaster, but saving a draw in the dying minutes against Macedonia, which received a real thrashing in the first round by the hands of Spain, showed that Serbia couldn't fight for the trophy in Poland.
Latest matches: Serbia
If we look at the performances of all teams in Poland, Spain certainly showed the most in the first two games. It seems they are the biggest favorites for the trophy and they already qualified for the semifinal.
Latest matches: Spain
Spain is the favorite to win this match, but Serbia might have some chances to win because Spain already qualified for the knockout phase.
