Prediction and Preview

Argentina U20 is hosting the competition and aiming to secure their seventh U20 World Cup title. They had a perfect record in the group stage and finished atop Group A. Their last match saw an impressive 5-0 win over New Zealand, with Alejo Véliz scoring his third goal of the campaign. Despite a red card in a previous match, Tomás Avilés will be available for selection. Argentina U20 has a strong attacking record and solid defense so far in the tournament.

On the other hand, Nigeria U20 finished third in Group D but advanced as the best third-placed team. They have a history of finishing as runners-up twice in the competition. Nigeria U20 has shown decent form, scoring goals in their first two games, but failed to score in the last match against Brazil.

The only previous meeting between these two teams was in the 2005 U20 World Cup final, where Argentina emerged victorious with a 2-1 win thanks to Lionel Messi's brace. Argentina has a rich history in the competition, having won it six times, with their last triumph in 2007.

Considering Argentina's form, home advantage, and their status as favorites, they are predicted to win the match with a scoreline of 2-1 in their favor.
