England U21’s v Portugal U21’s Euro Championship Betting Tips 02/07/2023

U21's Euro Championship betting

England and Portugal under 21s face off in the European Championship quarter-finals this Sunday, so here’s our free England U21’s v Portugal U21’s Euro Championship Betting Tips for you. Despite the stature of the two sides, they have had contrasting group stages. The Three Lions have cruised through their opening three matches. But a talented Portugal side just scraped through their qualification matches. Can England maintain their impressive form? Or will Portugal find their feet in Georgia? This fixture kicks off at 5 p.m. at the Ramaz Shengelia Stadium, and it will be shown live on UEFA TV.

Form and Team News 

England progressed from qualification group C with a 100% winning record after they defeated Germany 2-0 last time out. The Tree Lions also beat the Czech Republic and Israel 2-0 to win the group. Portugal were less consistent in group A and edged to the knockout stages with a 2-1 victory over Belgium. The Seleção previously held the Netherlands to a 1-1 draw and lost their opening match 2-0 against Georgia. 

In terms of team news, England made eight changes for the win over Germany. But Carsley is expected to recall the likes of Emil Smith-Rowe, Anthony Gordon and Morgan Gibbs-White. Portugal has no injuries or suspensions ahead of the fixture. Forward Henrique Araújo is set to lead the line with seven goals in his last 15 games for the under-21s.

Match Winner Betting Tips

Recent form and winning momentum put England as the clear favourites to beat Portugal in this quarter-final clash. Portugal’s struggles in the group stages leave them winless in three of their last six internationals. However, Portugal has beaten England in the last two meetings. As a result, Coral has the Seleção at 29/10 to defeat the Three Lions. A draw seems like the least likely outcome for this fixture. In the last seven head-to-head matches, there have been no draws between England and Portugal. In addition, England have not drawn in their last 17 matches so odds of 11/4, offered by Unibet, should be considered an outsider bet. Our match winner tip for this contest is to back England to make it four wins from four. The Three Lions controlled matches against some tough opponents in the group stages. There is good value to back another England win at evens, provided by Bet365.

Under 2.5 Goals Bet Tip

Although an England win over Portugal is the standout bet, don’t expect too many goals in this contest. England has seen under 2.5 goals in their last four matches, while Portugal has had two or fewer goals total in two of their three matches in the European Championships. Also, six of the last seven clashes between these two sides have ended with under 2.5 goals. Therefore, we are tipping two or fewer goals in this quarter-final, with 10Bet offering the best returns at 68/67.

Anytime Goalscorer Betting

As a low-scoring encounter is expected between England and Portugal, certain key players from either side could make the difference. For Portugal, Tiago Dantas struck a vital goal in the 2-1 over Belgium last time out and the midfielder has been an ever-present starter for Seleção during the Euros. At 6/1, offered by William Hill, Dantas could be a good option in the anytime scorer market. But, England’s key man in the Euros has been midfielder Emil Smith-Rowe. The Arsenal player has scored two goals in two starts and was rested for the 2-0 win over Germany. With Smith-Rowe set to return to the line-up in the quarter-final, we are backing him to net again. Again, William Hill has the best value for a Smith-Rowe anytime goal at 14/5.
