Could we really have asked for a more satisfying way to close this year's European U21 Championships with what have proven to be the most entertaining sides in the competition? Spain make their third appearance in the final following what has certainly been an excellent campaign with Albert Celades' side winning all of their games so far and scoring twelve goals in the tournament. Indeed La Rojita are unbeaten in 13 matches and they will look for inspiration from Saul Niguez, the top-scorer finding the net five times in three finals' appearances.
Niguez scored a hat-trick against Italy in the semi-final victory over Italy earlier this week and he will look to continue this excellent scoring form and finish the competition with a bang on Friday, therefore it is worth backing him to add to the goal-count in Krakow.
For their part, Germany are looking for their first success in this tournament since 2009 and whilst they have impressed so far, they needed a penalty shoot-out to find a way past England in the semi-finals. Striker Davie Selke was injured during that clash after finding the net for the Germans, however he will be hopeful of recovering in time for Friday's final.
Either way, we should expect a hard-fought and evenly-matched affair with both teams being presented with numerous scoring opportunities. With plenty of top-class attacking talent in their ranks, we expect Spain to possess the edge and ultimately win the day by lifting the European U21 Championship trophy on Friday.
