Five games into the round of 16 of the 2017 Men's U-20 World Cup and there has yet to be a penalty shootout. But if you had to pick a match that would go all the way to penalties, it would surely be this one.
Neither Mexico or Senegal has scored since their respective opening group-stage games. Regardless of whether either team manages to change that in this match, one of them is going to the quarterfinals.
It's hard to pick a winner for this game purely on recent form. Senegal finished second at the AFCON U-20s this year; Mexico didn't make the final of the CONCACAF U-20 Championship, but lost just one game - to the eventual champion, the USA. Both teams finished second in their groups at this competition; both seem to have gone quiet in front of goal at an unfortunate time; each has been favored by a draw that pairs them against similarly goal-shy opposition.
England waits for the winner of this game in the quarterfinals, and it will like its chances against either. But both Senegal and Mexico will feel the tournament hasn't really seen the best of them yet - and the knockout rounds of the U-20 World Cup would be a good time for either team to peak.
In the knockout rounds of this tournament, teams play two 15-minute periods of extra-time if scores are tied after 90 minutes. If the teams are still tied after extra-time, there will be a a penalty shoot-out.
