France U21 to recover from early exit

France U21 is looking to bounce back from their early exit last edition, starting with a win against Italy U21. Italy on the other hand is no better, as they also had a surprising early exit last season, making them eager to recover here. The meeting between these two teams are highly anticipated, considering the power these two team holds. Moreover, France and Italy only have two meetings in their history, with France remains unbeaten. In those two matches, France have won once, while Italy remains winless, as the other match ended in draw. In their last five matches, Italy were able to score eight goals, but also conceded as many goals. As for France, they won twice and lost thrice on their last five matches.

France recently held their Maurice Revello Tournament, which they used as a preparation in this match. However, they were defeated by Mexico in the semifinals, but their manager remains optimistic of their campaign. Additionally, he is firm with his belief that the French squad could pull off a win in this match. During the qualifiers of the 2023 Euro Under-21, France were able to score 31 goals, which is an impressive record. They were able to prove that France is a dangerous team when it comes to attacks. They were led by Amine Gouiri, who scored five goals for France, while Diop, Kalimuendo, and Le Fee, all had three goals apiece. Additionally, France is looking to build a confidence from the fact that they are unbeaten against Italy.

Maxence Caqueret, and Michael Olise are both expected to take part in this match. However, Benoit Badiashile will be unavailable in this match because of his injury, and will be replaced by Loic Bade.

Italy on the other hand is looking to add up to their titles by starting their campaign strong with a win against France. Along with Spain, Italy is actually one of the most successful teams in Euro U21, winning five titles. It is not surprising though, as they are one of the hardest teams to beat in the contest. However, during their pre-tournament, Italy is performing lower than their expected performance. They are not as impressive as they were before, but it is just the pre-tournament. They lost to three of their last five friendlies, and won twice. Additionally, in those matches, they were able to score eight goals, but also conceded eight goals. During the qualifiers, it was Nicolp Rovella who led Italy, scoring three goals, followed by Cancellieri, Lucca, Pellegri, and Vignato, who all have two goals.

Experience landed Giorgino Scalvini, and Wilfried Gnonto a spot in Italy’s campaign. Moreover, Marco Carnesecchi is returning in this match, after missing their match against Ukraine by the end of March.
