Serbia U21 vs England U21 Betting Tips: England to Win

During their initial clash in mid-October, the national teams battled, with the Yong Lions metaphorically annihilating the Young Eagles on their home ground, resulting in their most significant and unprecedented defeat in history.

Despite Serbian national team’s early lead with Vladimir Lucic, the actual game turned out differently. The English side quickly overpowered, leading 3-1 by halftime and eventually thrashing the Serbians with a devastating 9-1 scoreline.

Although it may be difficult for England’s young talents to match the triumph experienced in Nottingham, they undoubtedly have the capacity to perform at their best and secure another three points against Serbia. The latter has been a consistent ‘opponent,’ having been defeated in all four previous matches.

Despite putting on a spectacular performance against the Young Eagles, England’s young footballers couldn’t sustain that level in their second October match. They struggled to neutralize Ukraine’s double lead in the first half, which resulted in a dramatic 2-3 defeat later on. This marked their first competitive loss in 17 months.

After their infuriating defeat, the reigning EURO champions are resolute in avoiding another blunder. This leaves Serbia, despite their home advantage, with minimal chances of securing a win this weekend.

The Young Eagles, under the guidance of their new head coach Ljubinko Drulovic, appeared to swiftly recover from the setback of conceding nine goals against England. This was evidenced by their late 2-1 victory in an away match against Northern Ireland U21, a clear sign of their resilience.

In spite of this, analyzing the broader scenario reveals that Serbia has only tasted victory twice in their last 10 matches, highlighting their current limitations in going toe-to-toe with the robust English side. Thus, we expect Lee Carsley’s outfit to make the necessary moves to secure a valuable three points in this away match.

Following an unprecedented and painful 1-9 defeat to England, the Serbian Football Association has made the decision to relieve the U21 national team coach, Dusan Djordjevic, of his duties. In his place, Ljubinko Drulovic has been appointed as his successor, enjoying a successful start to his tenure.

Guided by their 55-year-old manager, the Young Eagles clinched a tight 2-1 win against Northern Ireland U21 away from home, quickly getting back on the winning path. As a result, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Drulovic retain the same lineup as in his debut.

England U21 team news

Following the dismantling of Serbia U21, manager Lee Carsley made several alterations to the starting XI for the second October test. Unfortunately, these changes proved to be ill-advised as they suffered an unforeseen 2-3 defeat to Ukraine U21 away.

Dissatisfied with the performance of certain players, it is expected that the Irish manager will revert to the side that dealt Serbia a painful lesson, defeating them 9-1. Consequently, Harvey Elliott, who netted a brace in that triumph, along with the rising star Cole Palmer, should be part of the starting lineup.
