Spain U21s meet France U21s in the second semi-final of the UEFA U21 Championship 2019 at the MAPEI Stadium – Città del Tricolore Reggio nell’Emilia on Thursday evening (local time).
Spain looked to be heading out after the first game in the group stage after suffering a 3-1 defeat to host nation Italy, but came back into contention after Poland beat the Italians and Spain overcame Belgium 2-1 in the second round of group games. They then beat Poland 5-0 in their final group game to top Group A on goal difference from the Italians and Poles.
It wasn’t looking encouraging for France early on in the group stage either, as they trailed England 1-0 going into the closing minutes of the game, only to finally come away with a 2-1 win against the 10-men. They followed that up with a 1-0 win against Croatia thanks to goal from Moussa Dembele, but had to eventually settle for runners-up in Group C behind Romania, after drawing 0-0 with the group winners in their last game. That was enough to seal their place in the semi-finals as the best runner-up in the three groups.
