Betting Tips for European International U21 Qualifiers

We’ve been sharing betting tips for European International U21 Qualifiers since we started the site – a lot of tipsters won’t touch U21 competitions, but we aren’t like a lot of tipsters!

What are the European International U21 Qualifiers?

Held every two years, the under-21 European Championship has been running in its current form since 1989. 53 nations are involved in the qualifying rounds, with just 12 making the finals.

Though players can be as old as 23 by the time the actual competitions rolls around, when the qualification process begins they must be 21 or under.

Ordinarily played the day before senior international matches, under-21 games can be a good opportunity to scope out the burgeoning talent across arguably the most talented continent in world football.

Italy have lifted the trophy five times, Spain come in second with four wins and England, the Netherlands and the now dissolved Soviet Union boast two triumphs a piece.

Why we love European International U21 Qualifiers

Under-21 games are a big opportunity for young footballers to get noticed on the international stage, so don’t write these off as being your regular routine qualifying matches. For many, this is the highlight of their career to date and the competition can be hard fought even at qualification level.

Some of Europe’s brightest young players cut their teeth in European competition and the under-21 level sees a far higher quality than you might expect. The likes of Mesut Özil, Luis Figo, Petr ?ech and Iker Casillas – among many others – began their international careers at youth team level.

Games range from utterly unpredictable to routine victories, so do your research before you go putting any heavy bets on under-21 international football. Keep an eye out though, you might just be watching the next great player finding their feet.
