Other Leagues - 29.07 - EURO U19 - Spain vs Scotland(Urgent)
In Poland, Ekstraklassa is beginning today, but the rest of Europe is watching just one city. Godziesk - a place, where Euro U19 is held.Today is the final day. Final is between young but great players from Spain and, for me, surprise from Scotland. It is not first meeting of these teams. In group stage, Spanish beat Scottish unambiguously 4:0!!!!And, IMO, this final match will be very similar in result.
Letīs look how both competitors qualified for the final. There were three stages of qualification.
1st stage - qualifying round - not every team had to play this stage ( Scotland had to, Spain had not! - first difference in quality).
Results of Scotland: SCO - AND 5:0; FIN - SCO 0:1; SCO - SUI 0:0.They went through from 2nd place.
2nd stage called elite round - each team had to play here. Results of Scotland:
SCO - BLR 2:1; BUL - SCO 1:2; SCO - FRA 1:1 - first place and participation in Poland. Results of Spain: SPA - SWE 4:0; SPA - CYP 8:1; GER - SPA 1:3 - stronger teams and more ambiguous results, 1st place.
3rd stage is EURO in Poland. Scotland drew with Portugese (2:2), lost with Spanish (0:4), won with Turkey (3:2). Second place in groups stage, in semi-final lucky victory over Czechs.
Spain won with Turkey (5:3), won with Scotland and drew with Portugal (1:1), in semi-final no chance for Austria and victory 5:0!!!
I think this final will be no drama, it has favorite and I believe him.
Prediction: Spain to win
Prediction: Spain to win AH (-2)
