Dominican Republic vs Italy: times, how to watch on TV, stream online | U20 World Cup
An impressive 3-2 win over Brazil in the opener puts the European’s in a strong position going into this game at the Estadio Malvinas.
Italy vs Brazil is a fixture for the ages at any level and the most recent encounter at the Under-20 World Cup in Argentina ended in a 3-2 win for the Europeans. It’s worth noting however that they were three goals up in just over half an hour and a second half brace from Marcos Leonardo made it an uncomfortable ending for them. But they held out. Nigeria comes on Wednesday then they will conclude the group stage against the Caribbean nation on Saturday.
As for the Dominican Republic, it wasn’t the start they wanted, succumbing to a 2-1 defeat to Nigeria, despite taking the lead in the 23rd minute with a goal from the spot by Edison Azcona. Brazil face another big test on Wednesday before the final game.
