South Korea v Belgium Preview, World Cup, Group H, Thursday 26th June 2014

South Korea go into this all important game knowing that they need nothing less than a win if they are to qualify for the last 16 of the World cup, however even if they do win they will not be guaranteed to go through as they need to beat Belgium by at least 2 goals and hope that Russia beat Algeria by just one goal.

For Belgium it’s a completely different story, as they are already through to the knockout stages after beating Algeria and Russia respectively.

Belgium I expect will want to win the group, however they might rest players thinking of the next round match where they will want a fully fit and fresh team for a tough encounter.

Both teams will come out fighting but I expect Belgium to have to much quality for South Korea even if they rest players because they have 23 good players that they brought to brazil.

South Korea Team News:

South Korea currently have no suspensions heading into this game against Belgium. Also they have no injury concerns ahead of Thursday’s clash. So the manager will be happy he has all 23 players available for the match.

Belgium Team News:

Belgium also have suspended players going into this match and they have all 23 players to choose from. I expect the manager to change things round a little bit after already qualifying, maybe Mirallas and Januzaj might be included in the starting eleven.

South Korea v Belgium Head to Head Statistics:

These two teams have met three times over the years, of which it’s the European outfit of Belgium who have the advantage as they have won twice against South Korea and drawing once, with The Koreans not having won any of these games.

South Korea will know that they need to win this game by at least two goals and need the result in the other match to go in their favour. The Koreans will play their best eleven in this game. The bookmakers have South Korea to win this game at a current price of 17/4 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has a high likeliness of coming in, as South Korea will be pressing Belgium all game, however Belgium should have enough quality even if they do play a weaker team than normal.

Belgium will want to go into the knockout stages with a clean sweep of wins. They will almost rest a couple of players including the likes of Romelu Lukaku. The current best price for Belgium to win is 4/5 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

South Korea v Belgium Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

South Korea will be desperate to win this game and have a slight chance of reaching the last sixteen of the World Cup. The manager will be gearing his players up for the most important game of their international careers.

Their training will no doubt be intense and preparations stepped up ahead of this crucial clash. Belgium it’s a different story as they already qualified for the last sixteen and they have probably won the group baring a massive score line in the Algerian game.

Belgium would also have to lose by at least two goals. A point will be enough for them to win the group. I expect the first goal to come from Eden Hazard, as I feel he is due a goal in this disappointing World Cup on a personal level for him.

Right down to some predictions now and for my banker I chosen to go for Belgium Win to Nil, which is currently at very good odds and my Saver which has been a little more difficult is Highest Scoring Half – Second as most teams tend to concede more in the second half due to tiredness and this also looks decent value to be on.
