Korea Republic vs Germany Score Prediction
For all of Germany’s toiling against Sweden, they looked in control for the entirety of the second half. Korea Republic will battle to keep up with the frantic tempo of the German passing and a 3-0 German win is priced at 7.50 by Bet365.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Germany have conceded in all of their games so far at the World Cup but they should tighten up now with confidence back in the camp. Coupled with the fact the calamitous Jerome Boateng is suspended, Germany should certainly keep the South Koreans out. Both teams not to score is 1.65 with Crownbet.
Korea Republic vs Germany Preview
Korea Republic have had a torrid time at the World Cup and were eliminated after the loss to Mexico. Sitting at the bottom of Group F they will meet a German team with renewed vigour and hope. The Germans should find their range now and make it a very long 90 minutes for South Korea.
Betting on Korea Republic vs Germany?
Sweden were well on their way to doing the rest of the teams at the World Cup a favour and were only a well-timed tackle away from all but eliminating Germany when Toni Kroos stepped up to take a 95th minute free kick. The rest is history and after having suffered a monumental scare, Germany are now up and running at the 2018 World Cup. Joachim Low’s men take on South Korea in their last group game needing a win to progress and that looks the only result here. William Hill have the Germans at 1.17 to beat South Korea.
Korea Republic’s last game against Mexico saw more than two goals and that trend should carry on here with the Germans blowing the South Koreans away. Over 2.5 Goals is 1.5o with Betstar.
Kroos’ last minute winner has blown Group F wide open and Sweden are now looking in danger of going out the competition. Progression to the round of 16 is likely to be decided on goal difference and with the lowly South Korea waiting for Germany it looks like Low’s men will be joining Mexico in the next round.
- South Korea are winless in their last five games
- Toni Kroos’ 94:42 minute winner was Germany’s latest ever World Cup goal during regulation time
- A goal to be scored in the first ten minutes is 3.75 with Betfair
- Germany have conceded a goal in their last eight games
Why Should I bet on Korea Republic vs Germany?
Coming into the third and final games of Group F, Mexico leads the way with six points and a +2 goal difference, while Germany and Sweden trail on three points on neutral goal differences. Both Sweden and Germany will be vying for a win to claim a place in the next round, but Germany got the luck of the draw and have to face the winless Korea Republic in a bid to make it to the knockout round.
The Korea Republic has underwhelmed so far, with star Hueng-min Son providing the only real bright spots outside of a few wonder-saves from Hyeon-uh Jo. Germany came from 1-0 down to defeat Sweden 2-1 to keep their hopes of progressing alive and come into this game as the bookmaker favourites at 1.20.
Germany to score and under 3.5 goals
While Germany are the heavy favourites, they have struggled to find the back of the net in open play. Timo Werner has had his chances but has failed to capitalise. The defence of the Korea Republic should prove to be easier to crack than that of Sweden and Mexico, but a complete onslaught of German goals seems unlikely.
As for the Korea Republic’s goal contributions, if they’re being pegged back by Germany, their star man Son will be used more as a full-back than an attacker, and he’s their only reliable source of attacking inspiration. Crownbet is giving odds of 2.03 for Germany to win and there be under 3.5 goals.
Thomas Muller to score two or more
The Korea Republic has not impressed in defence and Germany need to score goals, so expect the prolific World Cup scorer Thomas Muller to step up for his country. This is the exact kind of game where Muller will find spaces, get into the dirty areas, and score goals.
He hasn’t set this World Cup on fire yet, but he was one of the better performing players against Sweden. He’s hungry for goals and will certainly look to be adding to his tally of ten at World Cups in this game. William Hill is offering odds of 5.50 for Thomas Muller to score two or more, or 1.91 for him to score anytime.
