South Korea v Algeria Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

After holding Russia to a draw in their opening match, South Korea will fancy their chances at picking up big qualification points against the group outsiders here. This is a real shot for them and they’ll need maximum points here as they face Belgium in their final group match. Can Algeria grab anything out of this in what will be the first World Cup meeting between the two nations?

The two have played before, back in 1985 in a friendly out in Mexico, which South Korea won 2-0. The Asians were pretty solid in their opening game against Russia, a match in which they were underdogs, especially after losing their final two warm up matches ahead of Brazil 2014 without scoring. But they scrapped and worked away, taking the lead but being unable to hold on to it. They do have a little history against African sides, having faced up twice against African nations at the World Cup, and going unbeaten in them, with a win against Togo in 2006 and then drawing against Nigeria four years ago.

South Korea have only won one of their last six matches in the World Cup group stage, posting a W1 D3 L2 record in that sequence. This probably isn’t going to be a high scoring match, so look under 2.5 goals, but the South Koreans are favourites here, as they just have more enterprise, quality and experience throughout their ranks. Chu-Young Park and Son Heung Min are 2/1 joint favourites in the anytime goalscorer market. Their point against Russia was unexpected, so now will be big test to see if they can consolidate that.

Algeria lost 2-1 against Belgium in their opener, and they only managed the one shot on target, and that was from the penalty spot from their goal. The African nation only managed just three attempts at goal in the entire game. Algeria have only managed two goals in their last last 11 hours and 25 minutes of World Cup football. They started the tournament as favourites to finish bottom of the group, which they have done in each of their last two World Cup participations. Algeria beat Slovenia, Armenia and Romania ahead of the tournament but are rightly underdogs here.
