On Tuesday, the semifinals of the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup will take place. Ukraine and Italy will take part in the first semifinal, after Ukraine eliminated Colombia, 1-0, and Italy doubled up Mali, 4-2, in their quarterfinals on Friday. Ecuador eliminated the United States, 2-1, in a quarterfinal on Saturday and will take part in the later semifinal against South Korea, who eliminated Senegal on penalty kicks in their quarterfinal. None of the four teams remaining hav ever won an Under-20 World Cup before, so any winner would be a first-time champion, as such normal contenders as Portugal, Argentina and France have all fallen by the wayside. We have sports betting thoughts about each of the semifinal matchups for your consideration going into tomorrow’s matches.
