England U21s vs Austria U21s: In-form hosts to continue run

| 25.03.2013

Entering this Amex Stadium clash on the back of nine wins in their past 10 competitive outings, England under-21s appear value even at an odds-on 4/11 to beat Austria under-21s in 90 minutes.

The Young Lions are on their best ever international run, and have emerged triumphant in their past eight games in succession, during which time they have failed to concede also.

Therefore, it is difficult to approach the 13/2 visitors with any real confidence, and even the 7/2 about the draw looks tough to back with significant hope.

Given the Young Lions’ stern recent defensive record though, taking the 1/1 odds opposing the chances of both teams scoring could prove a wise move, but Austria’s recent goalscoring exploits should also be taken into account.

The visitors have found the net in their last four matches, whilst both teams have registered in each of these clashes also.

At 8/11 therefore, some will be tempted to invest in both defences being breached again, and betting on the number of total goals in the game may also prove fruitful.

Austria’s last three outings have each seen five goals emanate, whilst more than half of England’s last 10 have featured three or more strikes.

8/15 is the price regarding at least 2.5 goals here, and 10/3 is available regarding the net bulging in excess of 4.5 times.

Meanwhile, it should also be noted that each teams’ past three matches have all ended with an odd number of total goals.

9/10 is the price that that trend continues, and that appears even more worthy of consideration in light of three goals stemming from the most recent encounter of this pair.

Also, half markets make some appeal given a noticeable pattern emerging from England’s last three non-competitive bouts.

Stuart Pearce’s charges have headed into the break with an advantage in each of these matches, and look capable of leading at both half-time and full-time again here at 5/6.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
