This is Portugal’s first match in three months, as their last match as a team was during their 3-0 win against Norway. On that match, it was Afonso Sousa, Vitinha, and Andre Almeida, who made the win possible for Portugal. Additionally, in nine of Portugal’s last 11 matches, they were able to produce three goals and up. These records give them the confidence that they could start their Euro Under- 21 with a good momentum. Moreover, they are actually in a good form coming into this game, and are looking to build from that form. For the past two editions of Euro U21, Portugal were able to reach the finals, but only ended up as runners-up. This is the record they want to improve, which is why they are aiming to start their campaign with a win.

Before this match, Portugal already dealt with a major blow, as Fabio Vieira withdrew in the contest due to a medical condition. Additionally, Francisco Conceicao might need to be assessed in this match, as he missed Ajax’s last three matches.

Georgia on the other hand qualified for Euro Under-21, as they are the hosts for this edition of Euro Under-21. Coming into this match, Georgia also have a good momentum, as they are from a 2-0 win against Cyprus during their friendly match. It was Georgiy Tsitaishvili, and Saba Khvadagiani who ssecured the win for Georgia. However, when it comes to their history, it looks like Georgia is the one at the disadvantage. Over the past editions of Euro Under-21, Georgia failed to be as impressive as their opponents. Fortunately, they can gain confidence from the fact that Georgia is unbeaten in their last three friendlies match. Additionally, they will be looking to make use of their home advantage, to try to escape Portugal.

Despite player burnout, Georgia have an impressive names coming into this match. Giorgi Mamardashvili, and Zuriko Davitashvili are both looking to lead Georgia in this match.

Portugal U21 (2.0)
