After two rounds played in Group H, one thing is clear. With two victories, Portugal has secured a place in the 1/8 finals of the competition, and certainly the first position in the group. Portugal didn't exactly play perfect matches against Ghana and Uruguay, but they took advantage of all the opponents' mistakes, so they can play the upcoming match more relaxed. In the match against the South American representative, Manchester Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes excelled with two goals, although it is still unclear whether he scored the first goal or Cristiano Ronaldo, who appeared to have had contact with the ball.

On the other side, South Korea suffered an unfortunate defeat against Ghana 3-2 in the last match, so they remained at one point won. The Asian representative dominated most of the match. At the beginning of the second half, they nullified the opponent's advantage in just 3 minutes, but they soon conceded the third goal, which would turn out to be the final result. This defeat was hard for many players, but the chances of reaching the 1/8 finals still exist.

South Korea - Portugal pick: Both teams to score

Although they won only one point in the first two matches, Korea presented good football. They lack individual quality, but they are very integrated and compact. Koreans lack the concrete contribution of arguably the best player Heung-Min Son, who is obviously struggling with an injury that makes him wear a mask, and this might be the ideal opportunity for him to be the hero of his team. In this match, apart from the victory, they need a good result from the second match, while Portugal is very close to securing first place in the group, which would avoid Brazil in the 1/8 finals. We expect a quality match with a good tempo and at least one goal in the nets of both national teams.

There are several questions regarding the Portugal lineup for this match. Ottavio, Danilo Pereira and Nuno Mendes were injured in the previous matches, and there is little chance that any of them will play in this match.
