France U20 vs USA U20 Prediction & Betting tips
The hosts of the U20 World Cup 2019 from Poland had to be defeated in the first knockout round. Despite best chances Poland failed with 0: 1 at the Italian national team. On Tuesday evening, the first knockout phase will be completed and will also be the great tournament favorite from France back in action. France meet the USA and is considered a big favorite in this knockout duel after three wins in the preliminary round.
The selection of French is peppered with countless top talent, most of which can already look back on experience at the professional level. The expectations are accordingly high, so far could the team of head coach Bernard Diomede deal with this pressure. The game will be played on late Tuesday afternoon at 15:30 in Bydgoszcz.
Four years ago, France secured the world championship title for the first time in this age group. Paul Pogba was the head of the team at that time, six years later France does not have the one big, outstanding star, but a team that is outstandingly well-staffed. Probably this French U20 team would also be found at a tournament of senior national teams in the extended favorite circle. Diomede’s 21-man squad includes players like Dan-Axel Zagadou, Evan N’Dicka, Boubacar Kamara, Jean-Clair Todibo and the likes of Moussa Diaby. Transfermarkt.de quantifies the value of the French U20 selection with a value of over 150 million euros.
The ticket for the round of 16 had France in the bag after the second group match. Both the opening game against Saudi Arabia and the duel with Panama could win France 2-0 without major problems. This threw Diomede in the last group game against Mali a little on the rotary machine. Against the strong Africans (reigning Africa Cup champion in this age group) France could enter a 3-2 victory. Although there were the first goals conceded, nevertheless, the group phase could be ended with the maximum points. Playfully, the actors from the second row also knew how to convince with a lot of wit.
France has undoubtedly the strongest squad on paper, but the youngsters have shown in the first games that they work as a team. In the second round between France and the USA, a forecast on the tournament favorites is lucrative.
UNITED STATES :
Timothy Weah, son of the great George Weah, scored the 1-0 win in the final group game against the U20 selection from Qatar, paving the way for his team to the knockout stage. The USA is in the KO phase for the eleventh time at the 16th participation in a U20 World Cup. There it comes, of all things, to the duel with his adopted country France, Weah is well known in the squad Tuchel Elf from Paris.
After the opening defeat against Ukraine, the knockout phase moved into the distance, but with two strong performances, the team of head coach Tab Ramos could still realize the knockout stages. In 2015 and 2017, the US even reached the quarterfinals of the U20 World Cup. Should this feat be repeated on Tuesday, it would be a big surprise. The Americans are regarded by the bookmakers as a blatant outsider. For a victory of the underdog in the game between France and the United States almost quotas are offered in the double-digit range. The already almost hopeless game is hampered by the barriers of Chris Durin and Alex Mendez, who have to watch each other because of yellow jail.
The mentioned Timothy Weah is undoubtedly the big star in the squad of the US boys. Otherwise, Tab Ramos still has ten more legionaries (five of them are in Germany under contract), but players who could already prevail at the highest level, one searches in vain in the US.
