  • Competition: EURO U19
  • Date: Tuesday, 4th July 2023
  • Kickoff: 20:15 UK / 21:15 CEST
  • Venue: Centenary Stadium (Ta' Qali)

On Tuesday evening, Iceland U19 and Spain 19 will meet in their first match on this Euro U19 at Malta. 

Iceland U19 surprised everyone to even succeed in qualifying for EURO U19 since there are only eight teams in the tournament. Firstly they finished second in Group B, behind France, but the second qualifying stage was impressive. In the second phase, they finished first in a group with England U19, Turkey U19, and Hungary U19 and made a historic success for this team.

Spain U19, like all Spain national football teams, are consistently among the favorites to win EURO. This year is no different for this U19 squad. They were very good in the Qualifiers, but it was much closer in the second phase than expected. Spain U19 were tied with Denmark with seven points but had a much better goal difference and secured EURO. 

Iceland U19 vs Spain U19 pick: Spain U19 to win and cover the -1.5 AH spread

Iceland U19 didn't play any friendly matches, so the only information is from the six games in the Qualifiers. Their only loss in those six matches was against France U19 by 2:0. Although Iceland U19 had very good Qualifiers, we must mention that they had a bit of luck in some of the games. Especially in a match vs Turkey U19, where they had two more players and still almost lost the game. 

Spain U19 showed in the Qualifiers just how good they are defensively. In five matches, they haven't allowed a single goal (13:0 goal difference in both qualifying phases combined). And if we take a closer look, they allowed only one goal in the previous 15 games in all competitions!

Spain U19 won seven of the last eight matches. Only one win was by fewer than two goals difference, and that was against one of the best teams in Europe - Italy U19. Objectively, Spain U19 are a better team. If they score on time, Iceland U19 will have to open, which could backfire on them, and they could lose by a two or three goals difference.

Iceland U19 team news

Iceland U19 will have a huge disadvantage in this match. Their top goalscorer, Orri Oskarsson, who scored six goals in the Qualifiers, will not play in EURO U19. According to credible websites, the young striker is injured but not seriously and would be able to play, but his club, FC Kobenhavn, are unwilling to let him play. 

The team is also without Kristian Hlynsson, who was an important piece in the Qualifiers, scoring one and assisting one goal.
