Denmark vs Sweden by MightyDuke
Denmark won Group A thanks to victories over the hosts in the opening game and Serbia in their last match and deserved to progress, although theirs 3:0 loss to tournament favorites Germany. Denmark has a very strong young team who has great potential. Denmark has played six games in 2015 and has 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat. Full squad is available.
Possible starting lineups: Jensen - Durmisi, Vestergaard, Christensen, Scholz - Thomsen, Jonsson - Fischer, Hojbjerg, Jensen - Poulsen
Sweden enters into this game after pull through the group stages with four points, and better head-to-head record against Italy. A single point against Portugal was enough to progress thanks to an 89th minute goal from S. Tibbling. Sweden has played nine games in 2015 and has a record 5w-3d-1d.. J. Baffo is doubtful, no other absences.
Possible starting lineups: Carlgren - Nilsson-Lindelf, Milosevic, Helander, Augustinsson - Tibbling, Hijemark, Lewicki, Khalili - Guidetti, Thelin
The overall record between these two at U21 level is 12 Denmark wins, 19 draws, 19 Sweden wins.
Both sides have players who have already played for their nation’s senior sides and maybe that could help both. These two met only a two week ago in a friendly match that finished (1:1)2:2. It is hard to see either squad win easy this one, although Denmark has a bit more quality team. We should expect a real fight for the final of U21 EURO. Sweden has the better score in previous meetings and also Sweden won in two of their last three games against Denmark. I think it is going to be a very equal game. As a result, this clash could be longer than 90 minutes and extra time or penalties could potentially decide the winner. My pick is draw/draw.
