Argentina play hosts Italy Under 20s in the 9th-12th play-off semi-final at the Stadio San Michele in Calvisano on Monday. The winners will face the winners of the Samoa vs Japan fixture to determine ninth and tenth position in the final tournament standings. The losers will play the losers of that same match, to see who will claim eleventh, and who is relegated and will miss the 2016 tournament in England.

The two opponents have failed to win a match between them in six attempts during the competition in Italy, collecting two bonus points each. However, Argentina Under 20s could easily have been playing in the tournament semi-finals on Monday, for a place in the final. They lost their first two fixtures to Ireland and New Zealand, being beaten by a late penalty in each case, before a despondent side fell to Scotland 6-29 in their final Pool match.

Italy have been less impressive during their Pool matches. Both South Africa and Australia were easy winners against the hosts, before they pushed Samoa closer, before going down 24-30, scoring four tries during the third successive loss. Despite their trials and tribulations, the hosts have managed seven tries in three games, whereas Argentina have managed just three of their own, with only Ireland and Japan with two apiece, having poorer records.
