South Korea vs Mexico Predictions

South Korea’s hopes of a place in the round of 16 took a massive blow after losing to Sweden and now have to come up against a team that is the talk of the World Cup. Mexico overcame the odds to beat defending champions Germany and they look set on beating South Korea as they gather momentum. A Mexican win is priced at 1.53 by Betfair.

Match Odds

South Korea vs Mexico Score Prediction

Not being able to keep Sweden out is a worrying sign for South Korea with free-flowing Mexico up next. Bet365 has priced a 2-0 win for Mexico at 6.50.

Over/Under Prediction

Whilst a Mexico win looks all but guaranteed there should be two or fewer goals scored as South Korea look to break up the Mexican play. Under 2.5 Goals is good value with Crownbet at 1.71.

Both Teams To Score Prediction

South Korea’s attacking options are the weakest they have been for some time and the goals have all but dried up for them. It seems increasingly likely that they will be shut out again and both teams not to score is great value at 1.61 with Ladbrokes.

Group Standings

Punters shouldn’t take their eyes off Group F as lots of twists and turns are expected here with the outside possibility of Germany going home. Mexico are in a fantastic position and should secure their place in the round of 16 with a comprehensive win over South Korea.


  • South Korea have failed to score in their last three games
  • Before beating Germany, Mexico hadn’t scored a goal in three of their last four games
  • Mexico have only conceded three goals in their last five games
  • Mexico to score the first goal with William Hill is priced at 1.40

World Cup Qualifiers


Mexico powered to the World Cup with automatic qualification by winning the highly competitive CONCACAF North & Central American group containing quality teams, Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, the United States and Trinidad & Tobago.


Mexico are notoriously unpredictable and previous form is no real guide as to how well (or how badly) they might be playing at any given point in time. Their form can alter halfway through a game from the simply awful to sublime.


Alternatively, good recent results have come for the Mexicans in the World Cup warm-up matches including;

  • Mexico 3 Belgium 3
  • Mexico 1 Bosnia & Herezgovina 0
  • Mexico 0 Wales 0

  • Mexico 1 Scotland 0

  • South Korea 3 China 2
  • South Korea 3 Qatar 2
  • South Korea 2 Uzbekistan 1 and;
  • South Korea 1 Syria 0
