South Korea vs Germany Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Another interesting clash is ahead of us as Germany will play against South Korea at the Kazan Arena. This is the third match in their Group F campaign.
South Korea is placed last in the group with two losses. In the first round they were defeated by Sweden and in the second round, Mexico managed to triumph over them. With those two losses, they have most likely been eliminated from the competition. They lost to Mexico by the score of 1-2. They did not start the match the way that they would expect and as a result, made lots of mistakes. One of those mistakes led to a penalty kick for Mexico mid-first half. Vela took his chance and scored. In the second half, South Korea knew that they needed an early goal and started playing really aggressive. Because of that style of football, they received four cards in the second half alone. Chicharito of Mexico added another goal for his team mid-second half. Son Heung-Min of South Korea managed to reduce the lead by one in the third minute of the second half stoppage time, thus providing some hope of a comeback. A few minutes later, the referee blew the final whistle and with it likely declared that South Korea has been eliminated from the competition and that Mexico has progressed to the knock-out phase.
Germany is placed second in the group with three points. After their shocking loss to Mexico, they managed to defeat Sweden in the second round and increase their chances of progressing further in the competition. The clash against the Swedes may have been one of toughest that the Germans have played in the recent years. The Swedes showed their composure and waited for their chances. As a result, they managed to score first in the thirty-second minute and make the Germans change their playstyle. Just three minutes into the second half, Reus scored and set the result to 1-1. In the eighty-second minute of the game, Boateng was sent off for the second yellow, and at that moment it seemed like the biggest upset of the tournament is about to happen. If the result had stayed at 1-1, Germany would have been eliminated from the competition. They were a man and a goal down. Just when all seemed lost, Germany gets a free kick in the fifth minute of the stoppage time. Kroos fires it away and secures the win for his team. The German composure and mentality did its wonder once again. This may prove to be the most important free kick of this World Cup.
The two sides have played three matches in total. They first faced each other in 1994 at the World Cup. Germany triumphed by the score of 3-2. Their second meeting was in 2002 and it went to Germany again (1-0), and in their most recent outing, in 2004, South Korea beat the Germans by the score of 3-1. Germany will give their best to win this clash as a win would most likely see them progressing to the next phase of the competition.
