PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The second match day in the group F will open up at Rostov Arena in the southern corner of Russia. Here the loser of the first round South Korea will meet the author of the biggest sensation Mexico. Will the North Americans prove their advantage?

Unsurprisingly, they have never quite hit the same heights as that dream summer. They lost 1-0 to Sweden in their opening game of the 2018 World Cup, and that result made it seven World Cup games on the bounce without a win. They have lost five of these, and with Mexico and Germany still to face off with, you wouldn’t expect that run to end anytime soon.

Unfortunately for South Korea, they can’t even look back on a good performance on Monday. They barely made a dent in the Swedish defense, ending the game with just two shots registered and none on target. Son Heung-min, one of the stars of Tottenham this season, was largely anonymous throughout the match.

Mexico were the polar opposite to their Asian opponents. They faced the much more difficult prospect of a clash with reigning world champions Germany, but right from the start they looked threatening to an unusually vulnerable German defence. Joachim Low’s side simply seemed incapable of containing Mexico when they broke, and they got their reward ten minutes before the break as Hirving Lozano coolly slotted it past Manuel Neuer after a fantastic assist from Javier Hernandez.

Possible line-ups
South Korea: Cho, Y. Lee, Jang, Y. Kim, M. Kim, Ki, J. Lee, Koo, Hwang, Son, S. Kim

Mexico: Ochoa, Salcedo, Ayala, Moreno, Gallardo, Herrera, Guardado, Layun, Vela, Lozano, Hernandez

This is not the first meeting between Korea Republic and Mexico at the World Cup. They have faced each other once before, with the CONCACAF side the 3-1 winners when they clashed in the group stage at France 1998.

Both sides have demonstrated absolutely different results in the opening round. Mexicans performed perfectly against Germans especially in terms of defensive actions. We believe they can repeat this approach against Koreans and earn another three points to be advanced to the play-offs. Hence, we predict the guests’ win with a good coefficient of 1.75.
