RUSSIA v SOUTH KOREA BETTING PREVIEWRussia went very well during qualification as the top the group with 7 wins, 1 draw and just 2 losses, scoring 20 goals and conceding just 5 in the process and relegating Portugal to 2nd place. They come into the World Cup unbeaten in their last 10 matches, including friendlies.
The Russians are without Roman Shirokov so eyes again will be drawn to Alan Dzagoev, one of the best players at Euro 2012. Another potential star up front is younger Aleksandr Kokorin, who was the youngest player to score 10 or more goals in the Russian Premier League. Samedov and Glushakov are likely to be in competition for a place alongside Victor Fayzulin in the holding midfield roles.
South Korea were unconvincing during qualifying having been defeated twice by Iran and also slipping up against Uzbekistan and Lebanon. They only finished ahead of Uzbekistan on goal difference. Last week they have lost 4-0 in their final warm-up game against Ghana and now they are a run of four losses and only two wins in six matches in 2014.
The team’s manager, Hong Myung-bo, is currently facing severe criticism because of the team’s recent poor performances. Arsenal flop Park Chu-Young leading the attacking line while the talented Son Heung-min will provide Park with support as an offensive midfielder.
These two teams met in a friendly international in Dubai in November 2013, it was 1-1 after only 12 minutes and Russia scored the winner after the break.
