Luxembourg vs England betting tips: U21 Euros qualifier preview, predictions and odds


Luxembourg vs England match preview

England begin the defence of their under-21 European Championships title.

Back in July, the Young Lions beat Spain 1-0 in the U21 Euros Final in Batumi, with Curtis Jones’ fluke goal the difference, but James Trafford was the hero, saving a stoppage time penalty.

This is the first time England have been crowned under-21 European Champions since 1984, but this is the start of a new campaign and a new group of players for manager Lee Carsley to work with.

The Three Lions have qualified for each of the last nine U21 Euros, the longest streak of any side.

As they bid to reach the 2025 tournament in Slovakia, they’ve been drawn into Group F, alongside Luxembourg, Ukraine, Serbia, Azerbaijan and Northern Ireland.

England should cruise through this group, even though only the group winners are guaranteed to qualify automatically, so will they make a winning start in Déifferdeng?

Although, on Thursday, the Red Lions did kick off this new campaign with a victory over Northern Ireland; James Alves Rodrigues the only scorer at Mourneview Park, their first win since September 2020.

Nevertheless, a comfortable England win should be on the cards at Stade Municipal de la Ville de Differdange.
