Tickets to sports events worldwideItaly Under-21 losing on Wednesday 19 June 2019 the UEFA Under-21 Championship at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium in Bologna, Italy. Poland defeated the “Azzurrini” with one goal in the 40th minute by Poland defender Krystian Bielik.

It is a flop, a disappointing result because Italy dominated and created several chances for goal.   Italy battled but the good goal never arrived.   Midfielder Riccardo Orsolini had a goal ruled out for offside.  The qualification for the next round is complicated and will be a must to win the next game against Belgium. Poland celebrated this historical victory because it was their first against Italy in a competitive Under-21 game. Things worked out for Poland becoming the second team to keep a clean sheet in the eighth match of this tournament. Previously, Austria defeated Serbia with a 2-0.

Let’s not dismay and keep supporting the Azzurrini to win the next game Italy vs Belgium on June 22. Poland will face Spain.

  • The UEFA Under-21 Championship Standing Group A after Matchday 2 sees Poland in the first position with 6 points and a positive goal difference of +2; Italy in the second position with 3 points and a positive goal difference of +1; Spain in the third position with 3 points and a negative goal difference of -1; and Belgium in the 4th position with 0 points and a negative goal difference of -2.

The Italian Under-21 National Team’s final match of the season will be on Tuesday 29 May against France at the Stade Léo Lagrange in Besançon with kick-off at 21:00.  Head Coach Luigi Di Biagio says it will be “A test at a high level.”

  • The two national teams last met two years ago on 2 June 2016 in Venice with France winning 1-0. The head-to-head record favours the Azzurrini however. In the past 16 matches, Italy have won seven, drawn five and lost four.
