Germany vs Israel match preview

Will Germany retain their under-21 European Championships title?

Two summers ago, die Mannschaft won this competition for the third time in just 12 years, beating Portugal 1-0 in the final in Ljubljana.

More broadly, Germany’s recent record at this tournament is imperious, also capturing the trophy in 2009 and 2017, beaten in the 2019 final and the 2015 semi-finals.

Put succinctly, at the last six editions this team have qualified for, they’ve only failed to reach the semi-finals once, ending up as winners on three occasions.

Now led by Antonio Di Salvo, who succeeded Stefan Kuntz two years ago, they have high expectations once more.

So, will the holders make a winning start in Kutaisi?

Israel meantime are making just their third U21 Euros appearance, going out in the group phase in 2007 and 2013, the latter as hosts.

To get here, the Blues and Whites came through the play-offs, ousting Republic of Ireland on penalties after both legs were drawn.

Eden Kartsev, goalkeeper Daniel Peretz and Osher Davida all holding their nerve from 12 yards in Tel Aviv.

Alongside the holders, England and Czechia in Group C, Guy Luzon’s are rank-outsiders, hoping to upset the odds and reach the knockout phase for the very first time.

These two teams did meet during qualifying, with Germany winning both times; 3-2 in Paderborn and then 1-0 in Petah Tikva.

This, everything points towards a German victory at Ramaz Shengelia Stadium.

Germany team news

Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund and Brentford’s Kevin Schade will be leading the German attack.

The former has scored six times in just five appearances for the U21s, while Schade’s record is four in five.

Defender Josha Vagnoman and star striker Moukoko were both part of the squad that won this tournament two summers ago.

Israel team news

Goalkeeper Daniel Peretz was undoubtedly the hero of the play-off win over Republic of Ireland, not only saving three spot-kicks but scoring one himself.

Midfielder Eden Kartsev (İstanbul Başakşehir) and Oscar Gloukh (RB Salzburg) are the only squad members plying their trade outside Israel.

Arad Bar, who will join FC Zürich later this summer, is the top-scorer in the squad with just three goals for the U21s.
