South Korea could do with a confidence-boosting win ahead of the World Cup and appear to have found suitable opponents in Bolivia.
The Taegeuk Warriors have lost three of their last four international friendlies but this Innsbruck clash represents a drop in class.
We’re taking 23/20 for Shin Tae-yong’s side to prevail by more than one goal in our South Korea vs Bolivia betting tips.
A Look At South Korea’s Betting Odds
Russia 2018 will be South Korea’s ninth straight appearance on football’s biggest stage and they are in a tough group which also includes Germany, Mexico and Sweden.
A largely unconvincing qualifying campaign saw them trail Iran by seven points when second in a pretty moderate Asian section.
Friday’s 3-1 home loss to Bosnia and Herzegovina added weight to the perception that they will struggle to make the World Cup knockout rounds, having also been beaten by Northern Ireland and Poland in March.
However, there was a decent 2-0 triumph over Honduras last month, when Tottenham star Son Heung-min opened the scoring.
Swansea stalwart Ki Sung-yueng and Koo Ja-cheol of Augsburg are solid options in midfield and overcoming this test should also be within their compass.
Looking at the South Korea vs Bolivia odds, we like 5/4 for the Taegeuk Warriors to win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
A Look At Bolivia’s Betting Odds
Bolivia finished second from bottom in the 10-strong South American qualifying section, losing 12 of their 18 matches and conceding 38 goals.
La Verde did finish off that campaign with some encouraging displays, beating Chile 1-0 and drawing 0-0 with Brazil last autumn.
However, those results came in La Paz and they were far less effective on the road, with nine straight away defeats including a 5-0 thrashing in Venezuela.
Last week’s 3-0 loss to the USA in Pennsylvania backed up the view that this side simply does not travel well.
A largely inexperienced squad looks there for the taking and 31/4 for the Taegeuk Warriors to match that scoreline completes our South Korea vs Bolivia betting predictions.
SOUTH KOREA 1-3 Bosnia and Herzegovina – Lee Jae-sung
USA 3-0 BOLIVIA
Head-to-head: South Korea 0-0 Bolivia
