Cyprus U21 vs Gibraltar U21 Prediction & Betting tips
Cyprus U21 and Gibraltar U21 meet at Stadio RAFAEL GROUP Ammóchostos, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Under-21 Championship (Qualifying Round). These two teams have never faced each other before, so this will be their first direct confrontation.
The team will make its debut in this edition of the competition, as it did not have to play any of the eliminatory games prior to this group stage. The team comes to this match after a draw with Malta U21 by (1-1). In the last 10 matches played for all competitions, Cyprus U21 won 2, drew 1 and lost 7. Their defense has not been very strong, as they have suffered at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. There is a tendency for goals in their matches, as 9 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. This is a team that usually feels very difficult to score first. In fact, he only opened the scoring once in the last 10 games. In 10 matches, he suffered the first goal 9 times and only managed 2 comebacks. There are 2 periods that stand out in the last 10 matches for all competitions: they scored 3 of their 8 goals between the minutes (46′-60 ‘); He suffered 8 of his 22 goals between the minutes (76’-90 ‘).
Cyprus begins its campaign in this qualifying phase for the European Championship of 2021, a competition that will be held in Hungary and Slovenia. We remember that the Cypriots failed access to this year’s European Championship. In this game the hobby trainer Nikolaos Andronikos sees a good opportunity to conquer the first three points and for this reason he must enter the field with a more offensive strategy. The player of Tottenham, Jack Roles, is the great weapon of this formation, being very strong in the pass and vision of the game. Without big surprises, Cyprus must bet on its best starting eleven against Gibraltar.
The team will make its debut in this edition of the competition, as it did not have to play any of the eliminatory games prior to this group stage. In their last match, for the UEFA U21 Championship, they lost to FYR Macedonia U21 by (6-1). In the last 10 matches Gibraltar U21 has a record of 1 win and 9 losses. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has not been very effective, since they have not scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their matches there is a tendency for goals, since 8 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that has presented difficulties in opening the scoring and who only managed to score the first goal once in the last 10 games. In 10 games, he never got the comeback in the 9 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Like the opponent of this game, Gibraltar did not get access to the European Championship of 2019 and now tries an improbable qualification for the 2021. We remember that the visitors won 1 of the 10 matches played in that phase. In this difficult match against Cyprus, coach Aaron Asquez must opt for a more defensive strategy, seeking only to go on the attack through rapid transitions. Also, in most of its games, we can check Gibraltar designed at 4-2-3-1. For this game the coach can count on all the usual players.
