Never write off Germany was the cry after their win over Sweden and the World Cup holders can now reach the knockout rounds by beating South Korea.
The Taegeuk Warriors are already condemned to an early exit from Russia 2018 following two defeats and have shown little to inspire support at this tournament.
This pool could still come down to goal difference, so 6/5 for Die Mannschaft to win by more than two is our first South Korea vs Germany prediction.
A Look At South Korea’s Betting Odds
Tottenham star Son Heung-min fired in a superb consolation goal for South Korea in their 2-1 loss to Mexico but that was not enough to keep their hopes alive.
Having previously gone down 1-0 to Sweden, the Taegeuk Warriors are now on an eight-match winless run at World Cup finals.
Head coach Shin Tae-yong was pleased with the endeavour of his team, stating: “Our players I think played a game that they will not regret.
“I really am very grateful that they did their best until the very last minute.”
However, injury problems have hurt a squad lacking strength in depth and Son was left to plough a lone furrow up front for most of that match.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany also looked to be heading home when following up a loss to Mexico by going behind against Sweden in Sochi.
However, Marco Reus gave them a lifeline and they continued to dominate even after the dismissal of Jerome Boateng.
Julian Brandt’s shot came crashing back off the post and Mario Gomez missed a clear-cut opportunity, but there was no denying Toni Kroos in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
“Something I did appreciate is that we didn’t lose our nerves and break out in panic after conceding a goal,” said Joachim Low. “We kept a level head and never lost hope.
“Obviously, the goal we scored in stoppage time was a bit lucky but it is always a result of our belief in ourselves.
“We have to play against South Korea in order to be sure we make it to the next round and then everything is open, we will take it as it comes.”
Low will be hoping for a more routine victory this time and 12/5 for Die Mannschaft to lead 1-0 at the break completes our South Korea vs Germany betting tips.
