England U21 vs Scotland U21 Prediction October 2017

Tournament: 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification
Location: Riverside Stadium
Match date: 06.10.2017 at 19:45

On October 6 2017 at 19:45 in Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium in the upcoming regular game of the European Under-21 Championship qualification England Under-21 team will play against their peers from Scotland.

England youth team Under 21 has a huge experience in the finals of different international competitions. Anyway, they didn’t have any successful finals just like their older competitors. Their best results were in the years at the Euros 1982 and 1984 when they won and in the years 1978, 1980, 1986 and 1988 when they made it to the semifinal. In the new history England took part in the semifinals in the years 2007 and 2017 and became the vice-champions in 2009. The teams have already played two games in the current qualification. In those matches England shared the points with Netherlands 1:1 and outplayed Latvia 3:0 at the beginning of September.

The successes of Scottish U21 team were mostly connected with the successes of England somehow and all of them happened in the previous century, in fact. Last time Scotland took part in the international competition was in 1996 and they took the 4th place in it. They have never overcome the qualification since then. As for the current qualifiers, Scotland have already played one match in the qualification for the Euros 2018 where they outplayed Netherlands U21 2:0.

Even though the countries are really close to each other in territory, they still haven’t played many games against each other. They have only played one match against each other in the year 2013 and England won in that home game with the devastating 6:0. England showed really good results at the latest Under-21 Euros while Scotland haven’t won in their away matches since 2015. That’s why it seems to us that the upcoming game will be successful for England Under-21 team.
