27th June 2018 – 10:00 ET
Germany’s defeat against Mexico was one of the shock results of the tournament but they managed to bounce back against Sweden and have put themselves in a decent position coming into this Group F tie. Joachim Low’s side haven’t struggled in the final third but they’ve looked suceptible at the back. They have created plenty of chances in the previous 180 minutes and have rattled the woodwork in both of those matches. They should be able to end with a victory against South Korea. Their opponents are already eliminated from the competition and are yet to pick up any points in Group F. They are likely to struggle to contain the holders and Germany can be backed at 1.16 with 888sport.
South Korea vs Germany Preview
There were some criticism of manager Shin Tae-yong after South Korea’s opening defeat to Sweden but they were much more attack-minded against Mexico. They still failed to pick up any points but it was a better display and they can enter this tie with plenty of confidence. Their defence is committed but has given away a penalty in each of their last two games and they’ve picked up plenty of yellow cards along the way. They could struggle to contain Germany in the final third and may leave the competition without anything to show for it.
Germany hammered on the door throughout the second half against Sweden and finally got their reward. They have struggled at the back but looked dangerous going forward and they have been one of the most entertaining sides to watch at this tournament. They have an abundance of talent in their squad although they can’t call upon Jerome Boateng, who is suspended for this tie. Joachim Low may be tempted to make a few changes for this game as his side seek to improve their goal difference.
South Korea vs Germany Correct Score Prediction
It isn’t the end of the world if Germany finish second in Group F but they will be hoping to qualify as the top side in this section. They will be determined to score a few goals in this game and make up for their previous misdemeanours in front of goal. They should be able to find a few gaps in the South Korean defence and don’t be surprised if they get an opportunity from the penalty spot. They should be able to make this comfortable and a 4-0 win looks a decent wager and can be backed at 10.00 with Sports Interaction.
Both Teams to Score Prediction
Germany had over 70% possession against Sweden but still managed to concede a goal. They are likely to be in complete control of this tie and South Korea do not possess the firepower of Janne Andersson’s side. They may struggle to get the ball off their opponents and chances are likely to be few and far between. Both Teams to Score? No can be backed at 1.52 with 888Sport.

Head to Head
These two sides have met on three previous occasions. They’ve faced one another at the FIFA World Cup twice with their last clash coming in 2002. The hosts had unexpectedly progressed through to the quarter-finals but a Michael Ballack strike in the 75th minute ended their hopes of making it to the final four. Germany have won both of their competitive meetings but South Korea were victorious when they met at the end of 2004.

Son Heung Min – He may have played second fiddle to Harry Kane at Spurs but Son Heung Min is the main man for his country. There are a number of talented attacking players in the squad but the Premier League-star is the focal point of this South Korean side and his goals helped ensure their participation at Russia 2018.
Timo Werner – Germany have talent all over the field with the likes of Mats Hummels and the returning Manuel Neuer pivotal to their success. Timo Werner is seen as the natural successor to Miroslav Klose and is the man who is tasked with firing his country to glory at the 2018 World Cup.
