2023 FIFA World Cup U-20 predictions

  • Brazil is the favorite to win the 2023 U-20 FIFA World Cup. The five-time U-20 World Cup Champion and current U-20 CONMEBOL Champions Brazil are currently one of the best U-20 teams in the world, and they are looking to take Brazil back to the limelight.
  • This golden generation, led by Chelsea-bound Captain Andrey Santos, performed flawlessly in the just concluded CONMEBOL tournament as they went unbeaten throughout the competition. After missing out on back-to-back tournaments, they have also secured Brazil’s qualification for the U-20 World Cup.
  • The joint top-scorers in the CONMEBOL tournament, Vitor Roque, will be key to Brazil’s quest to return to their glory days and become joint leaders with Argentina for the most titles.

Prediction: Brazil is the outright winner.

Odds: 4.36 (decimal)

The Unpredictability of this tournament makes it exciting, and with the caliber of teams participating this year, we are sure to be in for a joy ride. Argentina has the advantage of being the host country, but the fact that they did not qualify for the competition on merit makes them less of a contender, which is why the five-time winner Brazil is the team backed to win it all. England and Italy are underdogs that might surprise the tournament, so watch out for them. Our prediction was made after careful analysis by FBR expert sports analysts.
