It was seven points from three games that Germany took in the group stage of this campaign. It was a strong 3-1 start against Denmark and then they went better, beating Serbia 6-1 in their second fixture. In their final group stage game, Germany just had to get a point against Austria in order to win the group. They did just that with a 1-1 draw. All three of the goals that the Germans conceded in the group stage was from the penalty spot.

They are the top scoring team in the tournament with ten in three. Their top scorer is Gian-Luca Waldschmidt who has five goals in three games. He netted a hat trick in their second fixture against Serbia. Two years ago in their semi-final fixture of the U21 Championships, they went up against England and took a penalty shootout win. This is the third straight edition that the Germans have been in the final four.

The most recent meeting was in September 2014 which the Germans won 8-0. The Germans are W5 D2 L1 in their last eight games at the U21 Championships.

Romania U21 News and Form

This is the first time that Romania have been in the U21 Finals since 1981. This is just their second appearance at the Finals. They were big underdogs to win their group as they were up against highly ranked opposition in France and England. They came racing out of the blocks to start with, beating Croatia 4-1 against their weakest opposition. Then in a crazy end to their match against England, Romania took a 4-2 win, their last two goals coming after the 88th minute. Those late goals were from Florinel Coman.

That left Romania needing to avoid defeat against the French in their final group to win the group. They played out a 0-0 draw in that one, and that was a result which suited France as well. That’s because it guaranteed that they moved through to the semi-finals as well as the best runner up. This is Romania’s first appearance in the U21 semi-finals. They failed to win any of their matches from their previous campaign which was in 1998.

In their qualification campaign, Romania went W7 D3 and claimed a clean sheet in six of those ten. So overall Romania are on a 13 match undefeated streak of form at the moment, which is nothing to be sneezed at. Before that draw against France in the group stage, Romania had been on a six-match winning streak. In that sequence of wins, they had scored exactly four goals in the final three games. They look, certainly in attack, to be able to match up to the Germans in this one.
