Will Stefan Kuntz succeed Jogi Löw as German national coach?

The reasons for this are obvious, because, similar to 2017, when Kuntz led the U21 juniors to the European title in Poland, the 56-year-old seems to have made it this summer at the European Championship finals in Italy & San Marino, From a collection of talented youngsters to form a conspiracy heap and a working collective, which claims again to the title.

Best Football Betting Prediction Germany vs Romania
On paper, Germany is against Romania in terms of odds as a crystal clear favorite in the game, although the clarity of the distributed odds seems a bit over the top. The team of coach Mirel Radoi has so far made an outstanding impression and left in the death group C both England and Croatia and France behind. The Germans should therefore not make the mistake and take the alleged underdog on the light shoulder. Even the DFB juniors have set the bar high with seven points from the three group games, especially the appearance at the end against Austria revealed minor weaknesses, which now has to be eliminated.
Due to the mentioned low odds, it might make sense to put a prediction on the goal market between Germany and Romania, because the outcome of the game is as unclear as the performance of Stefan Kuntz after this European Championship.
Germany – Statistics & Current Form
Two victories separates the German U21 national team yet from the new title coup at the European Championships in Italy & San Marino. Two years ago, when the Germans won the final 1-0 against the Spaniards who had been overpowering so far, penalties were needed in the semi-final against England due to a 2-2 draw after regular time. On Thursday, the team of Stefan Kuntz would like to do without such a thrill and instead make short work with the Romanians. However, what sounds at first sight quite feasible, could be a serious challenge, as the Romanians are undoubtedly the surprise team of this U21 finals.
Nonetheless, in the first three matches, the Germans have proved why they will be crowned by many bookmakers with the lowest odds of winning the tournament before the upcoming semi-finals. At the start, the youngsters from the Federal Republic of Germany, with Waldemar Anton, Levin Öztunali, Mo Dahoud and Nadiem Amiri after all, four players in the squad stand, who took the title in 2017, won 3-1 against Denmark. There followed a furious performance in the 6: 1 against the Serbs.
“They are not without reason in the semifinals and have prevailed in a good group” – Waldemar Anton
Only in the group final against Austria, the Kuntz-Elf did not stain with fame and could even thank several times keeper Alexander Nübel, which could be held at the end of the 1-1. With seven points and an impressive goal difference of 10: 3 reached the DFB talents thus group winners the semi-finals, in which a performance increase over the unfocused performance against Team Austria will be necessary to the third time (2009, 2017) in the final of a To collect European U21 Championship.
In order to find a suitable tip for the first semi-final between Germany and Romania, it would be enormously helpful to deduct the Patriots glasses and at the same time assess the previous achievements soberly. In fact, the Germans in the overall observation are a bit too good for us. Luca Waldschmidt, Marco Richter and Co. played in an offensive rush, especially at 6: 1, but did not get any resistance at all from the overburdened Serbs. The 1: 1 against acting at eye level Austrians was another hint with the fence post that in the duel Germany vs.. Romania, the odds for a prediction on the DFB team would have actually earned a higher value. We rely solely on the high quality game forward and bet – regardless of the outcome of the game – on at least one hit of the Germans in the first and in the second half.
To make matters worse, that Stefan Kuntz, some of his players have a future career as a national coach in the A-team, must definitely rebuild its starting eleven. Benjamin Henrichs saw his second yellow card in the tournament over Austria three minutes before the end because of time playing and thus missing in the semifinals. Maximilian Mittelstädt and Felix Uduokhai would be the first alternatives. In addition, there are question marks behind the stakes of the ailing top performers Jonathan Tah and Marco Richter. Both should, however, be fit in time.
Expected formation of Germany:
↳ Nübel – Mittelstädt, Baumgartl, Tah, Klostermann – M. Eggestein, Neuhaus (Amiri), Dahoud – Richter (?), Öztunali (J. Eggestein) – Waldschmidt
↳ Coach: Kuntz

Romania – Statistics & Current Form
“If he does not live his life after sport, then he can lose everything. I’ve lost just two million, but he’s in danger of wasting a brilliant career. He urgently needs to stop thinking of party, butts and women. “No, this quote is not about the world-famous escapades of former England international Paul Gascoigne, but about Florinel Coman, who is still relatively unknown in this country. The 21-year-old attacking Romanian player is one of the most positive discoveries of this European Championship and has been on the wish list for some Premier League clubs for quite some time. Stupid only that the fast outside runabout not only has his professional career in view, but also like the usual male Stör factors expires. This funny and worrying story is just one of many who wrote the Romanian Under 21 selection in Italy & San Marino in the first ten days of this finals.
Only for the second time in a row can the U21 representation of the EU state located on the Black Sea take part in a European championship at this age group. The only previous participation dates from the year 1998, when Romania reached as hosts at least the then still played out quarter-finals. The association leaders are already talking about the greatest success of a country selection in the past 20 years. Employees comparisons with the Golden Generations to Gheorghe Hagi, Gheorghe Popescu or Dan Petrescu have long been no longer a rarity.
The team, which has three promising and traded in Europe with the mentioned Coman, goalkeeper Radu or Ianis Hagi, the son of Gheorghe, in their own ranks, could convince in the group stage on the whole line. The underdog defeated Poland 4-1 in the opening match, before scoring a sensational closing period in the second game to put Mit-Favorit England 4-2 down. Before the final match against France it was clear that Radoi’s charges would have lost even with two goals difference.
«We always believed in ourselves. It was a tough group, but we knew we could do it » – Ianis Hagi
In a long boring encounter it was called after 90 minutes 0: 0, so that both teams were happy about the move to the semi-finals. This logically not agreed but still questionable draw caused frustration especially for the Italians, as the hosts missed as second-best runners-up the semifinals and the associated Olympic ticket. It will therefore be interesting to see whether the neutral spectators cheer for the outsider on Thursday in Bologna or the Romanians have not forgiven the accusation of match-fixing.
We are not aware of any failures, but this does not necessarily mean that coach Mirel Radoi, under whom the Romanians lost only one of ten international matches, will not make any changes. For example, after the 4-2 victory against England, he converted his team to five positions, causing surprise for the opponent. If we made weaknesses in the Tricolori on the first three matchdays, they were mostly defensive in nature. Between Germany and Romania, our predicted tip is that the DFB squad will meet in both halves, and thus be justified on both sides.
Expected formation of Romania:
↳ Radu – Boboc, Nedelcearu, Rus, Manea – Nedelcu, Baluta – Coman, Hagi, Olaru – Puscas
↳ Trainer: Radoi

Germany vs Romania Direct Comparison
At the last meeting of the U21 teams of both nations a good five years ago, the Germans won after a true demonstration with 8: 0. It was one of so far seven direct duels of the selection teams in this age group. Romania is still waiting for the first victory. Four successes of the DFB-Eleven face three draws. With the current constellations, the nations have never faced each other, which is why a cross-comparison between Germany and Romania provides no significant predictive power for a prediction on the outcome of the game.
Germany vs Romania Best Betting Prediction Explained
At expected temperatures of 34 degrees Celsius rises on Thursday evening at 18:00 clock in Bologna, the first semi-finals of the Under-21 European Championship between Germany and Romania. The odds imply a clear favorite role of the defending champion, with whom we do not necessarily agree at first glance. In fact, we think a 64% chance of winning in favor of the Kuntz team is exaggerated. However, this is not necessarily the DFB-Elf, but much more to the surprising strength of the Romanians, who could not prevail for nothing with seven points in Group C before France, England and Croatia.
