South Korea vs Mexico World Cup Prediction 23rd June 2018 – 4.00 p.m

Mexico can put themselves through to the knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup with three points earned in this game against South Korea on Saturday. That is because they caused the biggest upset of the tournament so far in taking a 1-0 win over Germany in their opening fixture. That was a massive three points for them and going on to win the group could mean avoiding Brazil in the round of sixteen. South Korea slipped to a loss against Sweden in their opener and our prediction for South Korea v Mexico sees more success for El Tri.

South Korea vs Mexico Odds*

Mexico 4/6
Draw 14/6
South Korea 5/1

Who will win South Korea vs Mexico?

It is Mexico who are going as the favourites in this one and that is justifiable as well because they are carrying more of a threat. They looked very good in that opener against Germany, everything that you would expect from them, committed, energetic and bold to push forward when they could. South Korea could well have a hard time pinning them down.

Taegeuk Warriors to slip out of competition

South Korea are in trouble now after losing their opening fixture against Sweden. They suffered the setback without even managing a shot on target in the entire game. So that doesn’t bode well for them getting a result in this one because they look a bit out of sorts really. They weren’t carrying much form heading into the tournament and they don’t appear to be very threatening at all. South Korea have won just one of their last six games (D1 L4) so they are there for the taking which will be good news for Mexico. The Asians are not offering too much going forward and because of their lack of threat both teams not to score is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). Because we are not expecting too much from the Taegeuk Warriors in our South Korea v Mexico predictions then there is the great option of 6/4 odds on Mexico to win to nil here* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). South Korea were pegged as the favourites to finish bottom of the group and that is what will likely happen to them.

El Tri on course for Round of 16

What a stunning result Mexico pulled out of their hat in their opening fixture, banking a 1-0 win over Germany against the odds. That puts them in the driving seat now to win Group F and that is going to be an important thing because in doing so it will likely mean that they will manage to avoid Brazil in the round of sixteen. Getting three points in this one then would ease a lot of pressure off them going into their final game which is against Sweden. In the bet365 correct score market a Mexico 1-0 is at 5/1 odds which does appeal in our South Korea v Mexico predictions while a 2-0 for El Tri is at 13/2* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). Mexico’s current form is only average at W3 D1 L2. They were full of running and very quick to pour forward when they could against Die Mannschaft and they could well overpower South Korea in this one. Hirving Lozano had a brilliant game up front for El Tri against Germany, getting their winner and he is at 2/1 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). Mexico are looking for their seventh consecutive appearance in the knockout stage of a World Cup. The hard work looks to have been done, it’s just about them not taking their eye off the ball.

South Korea vs Mexico Prediction

Mexico are likely to go out and seize this chance of progressing through to the next round of competition and the importance of winning this group and potentially avoiding Brazil is a big motivator. There’s no reason why El Tri won’t come out and attack in this one, and our prediction for the game is a win for them.
