South Korea v Mexico Betting Tips
As expected somewhat, South Korea are playing catch up in Group F early on and it is going to be a tough recovery for them after losing 1-0 against Sweden in their opener. The goal they shipped was from a VAR awarded a penalty kick, but even if they had picked up a draw it’s unlikely that would get into the qualification picture. South Korea have lost four of their last six games (W1 D1) and look short of quality at the moment. It is just hard to see what kind of impact that they are going to have going forward as they are without a goal in any of their last three games played now. They didn’t have a single shot on target against Sweden. Both teams not to score is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). Also the positive from the lack of scoring threat from the Asians means that for our South Korea v Mexico prediction we can see decent value at 6/4 on Mexico to win to nil* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). It is unlikely that they are going to avoid getting eliminated from the tournament after this match.
Mexico produced one of the performances of the first round of group stage matches as a bold display saw them take down Germany 1-0. That was an unexpected result at the tournament and El Tri now have the chance to secure qualification if they can make it two wins from two. That would ease a tremendous amount of pressure of them ahead of their final game against Sweden. Also, the thing here is that if they can push on and win the group then it could mean avoiding Brazil in the round of sixteen and that has to be an incentive to go out and attack. In the bet365 correct score market a Mexico 1-0 is at 5/1 odds which does appeal in our South Korea v Mexico predictions while a 2-0 for El Tri is at 13/2* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). At the end of the day, this is tournament football and it just going to be a matter of getting the job done.
Mexico are W3 D1 L2 in their last six games so they haven’t been running all that hot, but that was some performance that they churned out against Germany. They looked lively on the break and committed all over the pitch very well. There could be more opportunities for Hirving Lozano who got the goal against Germany and was so impressive in his attacking role. He is the 2/1 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.) and he will draw plenty of interest for the game. Mexico have made it to the round of sixteen in each of their last seven World Cup appearances and they are well primed to go and do it again with those bonus three points earned against Germany. It would be a shame to have all that great work undone.
South Korea v Mexico Head to Head
Mexico and South Korea have met eleven times before and Mexico have won seven of those meetings (D2 L2). Their last coming together was in a 2014 friendly when they collected a big 4-0 victory over the Asians. The two have met before at the World Cup as they were together in the 1993 edition with Mexico running out 3-1 winners.
Who will win – South Korea v Mexico Predictions
We didn’t see enough quality from South Korea to expect them to turn around and pull off an upset in this one even though they are in desperate need of the three points. Mexico played a really confident game against Germany and can deliver another three points here. Back a straightforward Mexico to win single.
