South Korea vs Germany preview, betting tips and prediction
Die Mannschaft need to win…
Germany to win with a-2 handicap @ 13/8 with Betfair
Germany and South Korea face each other in the final Group F game on Wednesday evening. After saving themselves in the last minute of the clash with Sweden on Saturday evening, Die Mannschaft are still relying on other results to get them through to the last 16. Mexico, who beat Germany on match day one and have already already booked their place, face Sweden. If the Scandinavians win, they will take the final spot regardless of what the world champions do. But it could have been much worse; Ola Toivonen scores to give Sweden the lead and at that point, Germany were heading home early. Marco Reus and Toni Kroos scored in the second half to secure the win. We think Joachim Löw’s men will get another victory here.
South Korea have struggled to make any real impact on the World Cup. Son Heung-min, their talisman who rose to prominence in the Bundesliga before moving to Tottenham in 2015, hasn’t had the best of times, though he did score a consolation goal in the 2-1 defeat to Mexico. While the Central Americans have exceeded expectations and Germany have most definitely fallen short of theirs, South Korea have performed as many thought they would. Son will be their main threat, but he showed against Mexico, he tries to everything and that can reduce his impact on games.
Reus scored his first World Cup goal against Sweden, and he will be out to score another to help Germany progress. He can found at 11/10 to score anytime, but our tip is Thomas Müller to score first at 7/2. The Bayern Munich man has not yet scored at this tournament but has great pedigree, with ten goals in the previous two. Germany need a hero on Wednesday, and it can be him.
