Sweden vs South Korea Prediction & Betting tips
Is it after the bookmakers and after many German fans, it is for the teams from Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in Group F only for second place. The DFB-Elf is seen as a clear favorite, but given the convincing qualification and the fact that you are reigning world champion, but not really surprised. As a result, Saturday’s match between Sweden and South Korea is already crucial, as the loser of the duel has a poor first-chance finish.
Who wants to bet on the Scandinavians in the match between Sweden and South Korea, receives for it lower odds, so that the bookies see the benefits on the part of the yellow-blue, but without their star Zlatan Ibrahimovic at this World Cup 2018. Since the South Koreans did not convince us in the test matches prior to this final round, we decided for the 2018 World Cup that only one of the two teams will meet on Monday. The odds for this amount to 1.61, but still have a respectable value, since so far many matches at this World Cup in Russia ended rather scoreless, especially if so much at the start for both opponents at stake.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become a major attraction in recent major events, with the Swedes taking part. Probably the biggest star of Swedish football of all time will not be there this year. It would be presumptuous to assume that the Swedes will get their problems offensively, but a look at the recent test matches shows that the team of Janne Andersson has usually found no solutions in recent weeks, from a stable defensive out in attack to become dangerous.
None of the four official international matches in the calendar year 2018 could win the Swedes for themselves. Against Chile (1: 2) and Romania (0: 1) it hailed after disappointing performances defeats. Against Denmark and Peru, the Scandinavians each had to settle for a goalless draw. The defense is already working very well and will also have good chances against South Korea in our eyes to keep the zero. Even if the Andersson-Elf conceded a goal, our tip would not automatically wrong, because even the “Blagult”, as the national team is called in the home, must first land a hit, which was often an insurmountable obstacle in the past. Only four goals in the latest eight international matches substantiate this thesis.
Actually, the South Koreans are one of those Asian teams, the footballing quite the level and the individual players have to play a decent role in a World Cup. We would not bet at the 2018 World Cup on South Korea. Too disappointing were the performances in preparation. As an example, we would like to cite the almost embarrassing 0: 0 against Bolivia. Hyeung Min Son and Co. did not make it to the proven worst team from South Korea in 90 minutes to turn the optical superiority into goals.
The dress rehearsal was also catastrophic for the team of coach Shin Tae-yong. Against Senegal, it was a 0-2 defeat, which again became apparent that it hooks in all corners and ends of the Asians. To be able to dream of the round of 16 at this World Cup finals, a sense of achievement against Sweden would be vital, but we are currently lacking the belief that the harmless offensive against a stable defensive Northern Europeans to score. Due to the fact that in the first game, if possible, you do not want to take a defeat, the risk that is taken will also be limited.
