South Korea v Germany- World Cup 2018

South Korea v Germany Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 27th June – 3.00 p.m

With South Korea on the brink of being eliminated not having picked up a point in any of their first two games, this is all about Germany. This group has been a massive struggle for the Germans and they had to fight their way back from behind against Sweden in their second match, a stoppage-time strike getting them a crucial three points in the game. Now in order to get through to the next round, they have to win by two goals or more or better Sweden’s results against Mexico. Our South Korea v Germany predictions sees a positive result coming for the Europeans.

South Korea News and Form

Despite losing their two games at the 2018 World Cup so far South Korea do actually have a chance of getting through to the knockout stage of the competition. Granted that is a very slim chance. In order for the Asians to progress they would have to win this game and Sweden would have to lose by a bigger margin than what South Korea win by. That looks pretty much out of the picture here and South Korea are heavy underdogs for this game and we can’t see them producing anything against Germany. South Korea lost 1-0 against Sweden in their opening match and then went down 2-1 against Mexico, the Koreans getting their goal deep into stoppage time when it was all too late. South Korea does not look much of a force going forward and because of that we are considering Germany to win to nil at 5/6 odds with bet365 for our South Korea v Germany prediction* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.). South Korea are now on a five-match winless streak of form in World Cup fixtures losing each of their last four. They will know course be facing a Germany side who need a performance to secure qualification.

Germany News and Form

Germany just about recovered from their opening defeat against Mexico, which is still the biggest shock of the whole tournament so far. The reigning world champions found themselves trailing against Sweden in their second fixture and at that point, they were heading home. But they grabbed a lifeline in the second half as deep into stoppage time Toni Kroos curled in a brilliant winner for them. That was some drama and covered up another weak defensive display by Germany as they struggled to handle the long balls that Sweden was throwing at them. So now in order for Germany to get through to the next stage they have to better whatever Sweden manage against Mexico and that includes the goal difference factor because they are level with the Swedes on that at the moment. A Germany 2-0 option in the bet365 correct score market has been appeal just because of how non-threatening South Korea look. So Germany still have some work to do and they have won just two of their last eight games, losing three of their last five. If ever they needed an efficient win now is the time.

Somehow Germany have managed to survive despite not looking their usual confident and fluent selves. They should be fine in delivering a victory in this one against an already eliminated South Korea and we are looking at the Germany 2-0 in favour of the reigning world champions.
