Group B: 0 goals, 3 dismissals in the classic
Towards the end of the game it got really nasty between Spain and Italy. After a grip in the face of an opponent, the Italian Gianluca Scamacca was sent off with the traffic light card. In the ensuing battle of words, the Spaniard Oscar Mingueza allowed himself to be carried away to assault before a second Italian, Nicolo Rovella, had to take a shower early. No goals were scored in the game that largely dominated Spain. The Iberians lead the table with 4 points from 2 games, followed by the Czech Republic and Italy with 2 points each.
- Slovenia 1-1 Czech Republic
Slovenia, the 2nd host of the tournament, got the 1st point in the 2nd group game. The result was a 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic in Celje. Until shortly before the end of the game, the Slovenes sniffed at 3 points. Thanks to a goal from Aljosa Matko in the 32nd minute, Milenko Acimovic’s team was 1-0 up for a long time. But in the 86th minute, Nik Prelec pushed the ball into his own goal after a Czech free kick. For the Czechs it is the second draw of the tournament after the 1-1 draw against Italy.
Group A: Germany equalizes late
- Germany 1-1 Netherlands
Germany has kept a good chance of progressing to the quarter-finals. In the prestige duel with the Netherlands, Lukas Nmecha (84th) equalized late. “Oranje” took the lead after a serious goalie mistake by Finn Dahmen through Justin Kluivert (48th). Germany leads the table of group A with 4 points. The Netherlands is classified in 3rd position (2 points).
Co-hosts Hungary were eliminated from the U21 European Championship. After the 3-0 defeat against Germany at the start, the Magyars lost 2-1 to Romania in Budapest. Because Adrian Szöke saw the yellow-red card shortly before the end of the first half, the hosts had to act outnumbered for 45 minutes. Nevertheless, Andras Csonka shot his team in the front in the 56th minute. The Romanians subsequently turned the game in their favor with goals from Alexandru Matan (70th) and Alexandru Pascanu (87th).
