South Korea vs Mexico Prediction & Betting tips
The jubilation in Mexico last Sunday was limitless, and at the moment of Hirving’s decisive goal, Chucky ‘Lozanos even let the earth quake to make it 1-0. The same was not reported from South Korea, which would have been surprising after the 0-1 defeat in the opening match against Sweden. Finally, the Asians did not take offense and almost always limited themselves to defending. If the ‘Tigers of Asia’ in the upcoming game against the South Americans does not increase significantly, the seismographs in Mexico will almost certainly knock out again, even if the magnitude will be slightly weaker than against the reigning world champion. In any case, with the aggressive football style of ‘El Tri’, the South Koreans should be faced with an orderly challenge, which they will hardly be able to survive at the 2018 World Cup. For the match between South Korea and Mexico, I therefore recommend a tip to the South Americans.
The selection of South Korea at the 2018 World Cup in Group F is certainly among the biggest outsiders and would need for a sense of achievement against the group opponents truly a perfect day. The fact that they succeed in this in the next two rounds of games, when looking at the well-known competition from Mexico and Germany but quite unlikely. That the Tigers of Asia are allowed to compete in Russia at all, they also have to thank for a relative easy qualification, in which opponents such as Syria, Uzbekistan, China and Qatar were sent to the courts.
Already in the World Cup preparation, the shape curve showed increasingly down. Not one was won by the last three test games against Bosnia-Herzegovina (1: 3), Bolivia (0: 0) and Senegal (0: 2) and that, even though there really was no overpowering opponent. The performances from the preparation continued in the first round of the World Championship. Against the Swedish selection in particular the always tried offensive of the Asiatic did not go on a green branch and was above all not able to relieve the own – under standing storage – defensive. The latter still stood for a long time, until the video evidence provided for the decision, as a result of a penalty kick sealed the 0-1 defeat.
The selection of Mexico was already before the opening match against Germany, the secret favorite of the Group F and can now already deal with the eighth entry into the round of 16 at a World Cup in a row. Clearly, at least one victory has come from this, but this should be feasible in the pending games against Sweden and especially against South Korea. That they are able to beat opponents they have already proved in the qualification. Here in the fifth stage of the North and Central America Group, a sovereign first place in front of Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras and the United States retracted.
The preparation went with a little ups and downs, but was by no means negative. Among other things, in an early phase World Cup favorites Belgium wrestled a 3: 3 draw and Poland are beaten 1-0. The game ended with a goalless draw against Wales, a 1-0 win over Scotland and a 2-0 loss to Denmark. In particular, the last Testspielpleite has left no trace of self-confidence. Because against World Champion Germany followed in the opening game a somewhat surprising 1-0 victory, which could not be expected in the run so certainly. This is due to a courageous team performance, with which it was several times, especially in the first half, to bring the German defense in the direst distress and logically rewarded with the opening goal. After the match El Tri would not have cared much that the German team dominated the statistics in almost all respects.
