Action resumes in the European U-21 Championships being hosted in Israel today, when Netherlands and Russia meet on the pitch. Netherlands shares the top spot in the group with Spain after a dramatic win over Germany in the opening game of the group stages, while Russia was held scoreless in their opener to Spain.
You would have to consider The Oranje favorites in this match up and the likeliest team to pick up the points, unless their is a miracle offensive output from Russia, who couldn’t seem to get it going against Spain. With a loss here, Russia’s chances of advancing past the tough Group B are highly unlikely, so what they need to ask on is a gutty performance. After all, anything can happen once the action begins on the pitch.
