This year has been a breakthrough for the Dominican Republic youth team, as they have never qualified for the World Cup. Now they managed to cope with this task as they sensationally reached the final at the CONCACAF Continental Championships, where they suffered a crushing 0:6 defeat against the Americans but got the cherished ticket to the World Cup 2023. At the tournament, it is difficult for the Dominicans to compete with more serious rivals. Still, in the opening game against Nigeria, they even managed to open the scoring but eventually lost 1:2. The day before, they tried to resist the Brazilians (a 0:6 defeat).
Italy has qualified for the Youth World Cup for only the eighth time in their history, and for a long time, they were without any medals in the final part of the tournament, but they still won bronze at the 2017 World Cup, and at the 2019 World Cup they reached the semi-finals but did not reach the medals. Now they are trying to prove themselves at the 2023 World Cup, where they are among the favorites. The opening match has only confirmed it, as already by the 35th minute, they crushed the Brazilians - 3:0, and then slightly relaxed, allowing the opponents to pull back a couple of goals, but no more than that - 3:2. However, in the second leg, the Italians sensationally lost to the Nigerians - 0:2, and now risk missing the playoffs.
Expert Betting Tips
Italy made a superb start to the World Cup in Argentina, beating the Brazilians 3:2 to guarantee a playoff spot. Still, they only needed to beat Nigeria to lose 0:2 to the Africans. Now, the Italians must beat the Dominicans, although they must create a comfortable deficit in the goals they need to score to make the playoffs. So far, they have a poor -1 record. At the same time, the White and Blue lost to the Brazilians 0:6 the day before, demonstrating their modest level. As a result, we'd have to bet on Italy with a handicap (-4.5).
Particular attention should be paid to a very weak defense of the Dominican Republic national team, which conceded six goals the day before in a match with the Brazilians. The White and Blue tried to keep a decent score for almost an hour, conceding 0:2 but then started conceding more goals. At the same time, the Yellow and Green played without much spirit but still had plenty of opportunities to score even more than they ended up scoring. It would be good for the Italians to score more, create a solid goal difference, and ensure qualification for the playoffs. On this basis, the best option for the prediction seems to be an individual total of Italy more than 4.5 goals, and it is worth betting on the goal from 1 to 15 minutes.
