South Korea vs Germany Prediction

Germany to win 2-0 (+650) Bet Now

This should be an intriguing fixture because both teams can still qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16. Korea Republic have to win and hope that Sweden lose to group leaders Mexico, while Germany have to match Sweden’s result if they want to avoid being eliminated at the group stage for the first time in their history.

Korea have looked poor in both of their games and have not helped their cause by giving away a needless penalty in each of their games. The Koreans are also overly reliant on Son Heung-min so if the Germans stop him, they stop Korea’s threat.

Germany should progress to the knockout stages as they are simply too strong for Korea and Mexico have the upperhand on Sweden, although nothing in football is guaranteed.

The Germans have not got out of second gear yet in this tournament, but they should be far too strong for Korea, plus Germany has history on their side having beaten all five of the sian teams they have faced at the World Cup.

    South Korea vs Germany World Cup Preview

    Korea Republic know they need a lot of luck if they are to progress to the knockout stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. First, they need to beat tournament football masters Germany. Second, they have to hope Sweden can beat Mexico.

    Neither of these scenarios are likely. Korea have lost their last four World Cup finals games and have lost six of their last eight games, including friendlies. During this barren eight game spell, Korea have scored seven goals and conceded 11 goals.

    Korean captain, the highly influential Ki Sung-yueng, is unable to play against Germany as he is suffering from a calf injury. He has big boots to fill and will be sorely missed by his Korean teammates. 

    Worryingly for Korea is their over reliance on Son Heung-min. The Tottenham Hotspur forward found the back of the net for the first time in 14 games in the 2-1 defeat at Mexico and is Korea’s only real goal threat. Teams playing Korea have marked him out of the game and without him Korea basically have no creativity or attacking poise.

    Results / FixturesGermany

    Germany slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Mexico in their opening game and never looked in the match. They then struggled against Sweden, going behind, having a man sent off but somehow pulling the result out of the bag courtesy of a 94th minute screamer of a free kick by Toni Kroos.

    This was the first time since the 1998 World Cup that Germany had come back to win a game after falling behind in the game.

    The win over Sweden will have boosted the Germans’ confidence and that spells bad news for Korea. Germany have won all five of their previous five encounters with Asian countries and have scored 19 goals in those five games.

    While we do not believe this game will be a rout, the +650 Bovada is offering on a 2-0 Germany victory is not to be sniffed at. The Germans may have been slow starters in this tournament but they are experts at getting the job done, as is evident by their win over Sweden.

    We also like the look of Germany to win and both teams not to score at -110 and the -125 on offer on Germany keeping a clean sheet. Germany’s defense is not the greatest, but it is better than the dire Korean attacking line-up.
