All roads lead to the Estádio Unico Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in La Plata, as Tunisia U20 and Uruguay U20 square off for three points in a 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup Group E fixture.

Both sides are coming into this fixture level on three points. They occupy the 2nd and 3rd spots in the group and will need three points to progress into the Round of 16.

Tunisia U20 vs Uruguay Match Preview


While the Carthage Eagles did not make a good start in their third appearance in this competition, they recovered well after losing their first game to thrash Iraq 3-0 in their second matchup. The result kept them on track for qualification.

However, the North Africans will have to bring their A-level game to come out tops over Uruguay. Tunisia will fancy their chances against the South Americans after a spirited second-half performance against the Iraqis. They'll love to reproduce it and guarantee their progress to the next stage of the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Uruguay are coming into this fixture after a 3-2 defeat to England in their last match. They will target a win over Tunisia as their qualification hopes hang in the balance.

Interestingly, Uruguay has scored the most goals in Group E. They'll hope to keep up their display in front of goal against the Tunisians. However, they'll be careful not to overcommit in attack, as a draw guarantees them a second-place finish.
