The U-21 looks for a hit on the table
MADRID, 20 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Spanish Under-21 football team will seek to hit the table in the qualifying phase for the European Championship of the 2025 category with a new victory this Tuesday (8:00 p.m./Teledeporte) in its visit to Belgium, one of its main direct rivals for first place.
The team coached by Santi Denia continues with a firm step in Group B, which leads with full points after four games played and after adding a hard-fought victory last Friday at the Nuevo Colombino in Huelva against Hungary, which it beat by 2 -0.
At the moment, the current continental runners-up are having a good start to qualifying, where in addition to not having lost, they still do not know what it is to concede a goal, a dynamic that they will try to impose in their first major test against an important rival like Belgium. and also at home.
The match is extremely important for the Spanish team, which knows that taking three points from the King Power Stadium in Leuven would already take six points away from a Belgian team that is much more in need at the moment due to its defeat at home (0-2) in the previous day against a Scotland that recovered its options.
The coach Santi Denia seems that he will continue betting on the most common block and that he will not introduce too many changes to face a team that will surely try to snatch possession of the ball much more than its other rivals.
Belgium, which was in the previous Euro Cup finals in which it did not advance beyond the group stage, is not standing out so far for its offensive aspect, with only four goals scored in its first four games, three of them by Kazeem Olaigbe , which contrasts with the 13 that Spain has already scored.
BELGICA: Vandervoordt; Rommens, Spileers, Leysen; Siquet, Stroeykens, Matazo, Engels, Olaigbe; Fofana y Sylla.
SPAIN: Cuñat; Novoa, French, Marin, Racing; Turrientes, Barrios, Fermín López; Fran Pérez, Carlos Martín and Diego López.
–REFEREE: Dario Bel (CRO).
–ESTADIO: King Power.
