South Korea v Mexico betting preview
South Korea showed few promising signs in an opening loss to SwedenSouth Korea are on the backfoot in Group F after losing 1-0 to Sweden in their 2018 World Cup opener. The Asian outfit were the latest in a growing list of teams to fall victim of VAR, but they could have no complaints. They failed to have a single shot on target and were frustrated by the Swede's defense. Their final match is against Germany, so picking up any points in that one will prove immensely difficult. The South Koreans come into this clash struggling for form, having lost four of their last six matches.
The South Koreans, stung by their defeat to Sweden, could reconsider their attacking 4-3-3 formation that provided little threat and handed space to their opponents. Kim Min-Woo is expected to deputise at left-back as Park Joo-Ho is likely to miss out after sustaining an injury in the first half of their World Cup opening match against Sweden. More will be expected upfron, particularli from Son Heung-Min. The Tottenham winger wil llead the line alongside Hwang and Kim Shin-wook. Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yeung, who will make his 104th appearance, will retain his berth as playmaker.
Mexico are in cloud nine after their 1-0 victory over the current ChampionsMexico shocked World Cup holders Germany with a 1-0 victory in their first group game, courtesy of a Hirving Lozano's strike. El Tri galloped into the wide-open spaces beyond Germany's static midfield, and time and time again they were able to run at an exposed defence. That win means that Mexico have won three of their last six encounters, including friendlies. They are now in pole position to top Group F, which could see them avoid a last-16 clash with Brazil.
Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has no reason to make any changes from the side that upset Germany last time out. As a result, veteran Rafael Marquez will again be named on the bench. The likes of Carlos Vela, Hirving Lozan and Miguel Layun should support the lone striker Chicharito Hernandez, with Giovani Dos Santos and Raul Jimenez providing further options. Andres Guardado and Hector Herrera are expected to anchor the midfield.
