Spain U21 resumes quest for finals

Spain U21 and Ukraine U21 are both looking to seal their spots in the finals as they meet for their semi-finals meeting. Moreover, these two teams are both aiming to clinch the title, especially Ukraine, who never won a title. Spain last won the title during the 2019 edition, earning their fifth title in the contest. Meanwhile, Ukraine last entered the finals during the 2006 edition, where they ended up as runners-up. Spain is considered as the most successful team in the contest, bagging five titles, while Ukraine only entered the finals in 2006. These two teams only met twice in the contest, where Spain won one, and Ukraine remaining winless. Ukraine and Spain are both in the Group B in the group stage, where both teams end up with seven points. This meeting will be on July 6, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

Spain is at the top of their group in the group standings with seven points across their names. Since they last received a title during the 2019 edition, they are very eager to once again add another title in their names. Moreover, this is the 17th time that Spain qualified in the tournament, so the level of competitiveness here is no longer new. From their last five matches, Spain were able to score nine goals, while conceding four goals. This season, Spain were able to exceed whatever is expected of them, making them the favorites this season. Furthermore, this squad qualified for the Semis after defeating Switzerland during their quarterfinals meeting. In the group stage, Ukraine was their toughest opponent, as their match ended in a 2-2 draw. Coming into this match, Spain is proving why they are the most successful team in the contest.

Spain will go all-out through this match as they have a full squad for this important game. Abel Ruiz is expected to lead Spain as he will be playing here as the captain of their squad.

Ukraine on the other hand is at the second of their group stage with seven points as well. Their one draw is coming against Spain, but they had a goal difference. Ukraine is a team who have yet to win a single title in the contest. This motivates them to go all-out here to stand a chance for the title they are aiming for. In fact, they only entered the finals once during the 2006 edition of the contest, but were not able to clinch the title. However, it seems like Ukraine needs to show more, as their performance in the contest remains to be a little underwhelming. Ukraine were able to qualify in the semi-finals by defeating France, in a 3-1 win. It was a little unexpected, considering how strong the French squad is a powerful and dangerous team. The advantage that Ukraine has is their ability to disrupt and impose their play, which they can draw strength from.

Georgiy Sudakov, Ukraine’s top scorer with three goals, is expected to continue leading his squad, and add more goals in his name. However, it is unfortunate that they will be without Dmytro Kryskiv, who will be serving his suspension in this match. With that, expect changes with their starting XI.
