Gambia U20 will lock horns against Uruguay U20 at the Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades in the round of 16 of the FIFA U20 World Cup on Thursday. Gambia topped Group F, winning two of their three games. They played a goalless draw in the final match of the group stage to finish as one of the six teams to go unbeaten in the group stage of the competition.
They have qualified for just the second time in the competition. They made it to the round of 16 in their maiden appearance in 2007 and will look to make it to the next stage this time. Uruguay U20 finished second in Group E behind England to qualify for the knockout round for the 13th time.
They sealed their second place in the Group E table with a 1-0 win over Tunisia in their final game. Franco González scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in injury time to grab a last-gasp winner.

Gambia U-20 vs Uruguay U-20 Prediction
The Young Scorpions enjoyed an unbeaten run in the group stage, Uruguay, meanwhile, have suffered one defeat. They won their other two games while keeping clean sheets.
Uruguay have more experience in the World Cup, which comes in handy in these competitions. They have scored more than three goals in two of their three games and are expected to continue their goalscoring form in this match.
While Gambia have been impressive in the competition thus far, their inexperience might be their undoing. We expect the game to be contested closely, but Uruguay should come out on top.
