Why Israel is a Good Bet versus South Korea
Israel beat one of the tournament favorites when the Israelis upset Brazil 3-2 in their quarterfinal match.

Then in their semifinal loss to Uruguay, Israel had their rivals on the ropes. The Israelis controlled possession against Uruguay 67% to 33%. Uruguay took many more shots, 16 to 8, and more shots on goal, 6 to 2. 1 of Uruguay’s shots got past Israel in the 1-0 loss.

Why South Korea is a Good Bet versus Israel
The Italians beat the South Koreans in the semifinals, yes, but it was by a single goal. What’s more impressive is how South Korea got a goal against Italy’s defense.

South Korea’s defense also held up well, yielding just 2 goals from 20 shots and 10 shots on goal. If South Korea plays the same way on Sunday, they will be tough to beat.

Final Betting Analysis: South Korea vs. Israel
South Korea and Israel have impressed during the under-20 World Cup. Both teams can win this match.

So instead of looking for the winner, we’re backing the draw. Expect both teams to play excellent defense and not take too many chances. A draw in regulation is the best play.

Why Italy is a Good Bet versus Uruguay
The Italians’ have picked up their attack but they haven’t been flippant about it. Versus England, Italy scored twice from 3 shots on goal.

Then in their quarterfinals victory over Colombia, the Italians scored three times from 6 shots on goal.

In the semifinals victory over South Korea, Italy scored just twice from 10 shots on goal, but a lot of that had to do with the play of brilliant South Korean keeper Jim-Joon Hong, who had 7 saves in the match.

Why Uruguay is a Bood Bet versus Italy
While Italy has picked up their attack, Uruguay has picked up their defense. The Uruguayans yielded possession to Israel and still beat the Israelis 1-0.

Uruguay’s D hasn’t yielded a goal in 4 straight matches. The Uruguayans will try and frustrate Italy into taking bad shots. The strategy could work.

Final Betting Analysis: Uruguay vs. Italy
This comes down to quality of opponent. Uruguay has played against Gambia, the United States, and Israel in their last three. Italy has beaten England, Colombia, and South Korea in their last three.

No doubt, Uruguay can win this, but if they yield 66% possession to Italy the way they did against Israel, forget it. The Italians will score 2, maybe, 3 goals against Uruguay.

Italy took charge of this tournament when they beat England 3-2. The Azzurri haven’t looked back since. The Italians lift the FIFA Under-20 World Cup trophy.
