Match Preview:

Portugal

Rui Jorge’s Portugal U21 side lock horns with Belgium U21s at the Mikheil Meskhis Sakhelobis Stadioni in the final round of EURO U21 Group stage on Tuesday. The Portuguese currently sit bottom of the table with just a single point from both their opening games. Goals from Sazonov and Gagua resulted in a 2-0 loss for them against Georgia U21 in their first group game before sharing points with the Dutch in a 1-1 draw – after Almeida had given them the lead early in the first half.

Any of Georgia, Belgium, Netherlands and Portugal can still qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament, with the table and positions in there to occupy quite open. Rui Jorge will have to hope for a Georgia win against Netherlands even if they register a win against Belgium – as Georgia will eventually be above Portugal based on head-to-head record, as the three time EURO U21 finalists look to have yet another successful EURO campaign.

Belgium

Belgiium U21 meanwhile sit second in the table, having shared a point in each of their first two games. The Dutch defense held the Belgian attack in their first game as the game ended in a 0-0 draw. Georgia meanwhile registered a wonderful comeback three days later after being 2-0 down in the first half. Goals by Tsitaishvili and a late equilizer by Guliashvili denied the Belgians the opportunity to go top of the table.

A win on Tuesday will take Jacky Mathijssen’s side directly into the quarter-final, while a mere draw would also be enough provided Georgia emerge victorious over Netherlands. The Belgians would be hoping to replicate their best ever EURO campaign which came back in 2007, when they reached the semi-finals of the tournament; after the Red Devils failed to qualify last time around in the 2021edition of the tournament.
