World Cup 2018 | South Korea v Germany Tips | 27th June 2018
GROUP F of the 2018 World Cup concludes on Wednesday as Germany meet South Korea in Kazan. Mark O’Haire shares his thoughts on the best betting angle.
They say you can never write of the Germans and so it proved as Joachim Low’s world champions kept their World Cup defence live with a dramatic comeback victory over Sweden in Sochi last Saturday night.
Defeat would have knocked Die Mannschaft out, while a draw would have left destiny out of Germany’s hands so Toni Kroos’ stunning 95th-minute free-kick has exponentially changed the mood around the camp.
The four-time winners now know what’s required to clinch a Last 16 berth – beat already eliminated South Korea by two or more goals to be completely sure. However, victory is likely to be enough should Sweden fail to overcome Mexico.
Germany to win and Both Teams To Score
Germany should be backed to deliver the goods but it might be worth having an interest in the Win and Both Teams To Score market here at 7/4. Die Mannschaft have looked anything but solid at the back and have recorded a solitary clean sheet in their last 10 outings.
The likes of Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Azerbaijan and Northern Ireland have all found the back of the net against Germany in that 10-game streak, while nine of the defending champions’ last 12 triumphs has seen both sides score.
