Asensio and Donnarumma Face to Face in the European U-21 Championship


Real Madrid bosses have a lot of interest in the European Championship Under-21 taking place in Poland. Today we can see both semi-finals between England U-21 v Germany U-21 and Spain U-21 and Italy U-21. In the last clash, we can see face to face Marco Asensio and Gigi Donnarumma, perhaps team mates after some weeks.

Spain U-21 is the great favourite to win the tournament and they’ve shown why in the three first games of the competition. Albert Celades team won all three games with some great performances from Marco Asensio or Sandro Ramírez. The Real Madrid player shone with three goals in the first game against Macedonia and he’s the main start of the tournament. Today, he’ll have another great opportunity to show his quality and help Spain to reach the final.

It won’t be easy because they have to beat Italy, a tough team with some good players from Atalanta, Milan or Juventus in their team. Above all the players we find Gianluigi Donnarumma, AC Milan goalkeeper who has already played for the Italian national team replacing Gigi Buffon. Since Donnarumma announced he won’t renew his contract with AC Milan, he’s a main target for Real Madrid, according to his agent, Mino Raiola.

It will be exciting to see face to face Marco Asensio and Gigi Donnarumma in the same pitch (Tuesday, 20:00 UK Time). Both could be sharing dressing room next season if the goalkeeper finally leave Italy this summer. However, it won’t be easy because AC Milan want to get some money and they are threatening the player to keep him on the bench, preventing him from gaining experience in the Serie A.

Real Madrid are building a great team for the future and Zinedine Zidane could see some of his players in this game. For instance, Marcos Llorente o Jesús Vallejo will be in the Spanish line-up. Kepa or Sandro Ramírez are another interesting players in the Spanish national team.
