SOUTH KOREA v ALGERIA BETTING PREVIEWKorea Republic will be satisfied to have opened their account with a 1-1 draw against Russia first time out but with group favourites Belgium still to come, three points here will be the order of the day. Against Russia, their defense held its own for much of the game while their attack was toothless
Midfielder Ha Dae-sung has been ruled out with a damaged ligament in his left foot while Park Chu-Yong may be dropped in favour of Lee Keun-Ho, who netted the opener in their recent 1-1 draw with Russia. Elsewhere we expect to see the same players that took to the field against Russia in the opening match.
Algeria almost cause an upset in their first game of the tournament versus Belgium. Sofian Feghouli had given the Fennec Foxes the lead from the penalty spot before Marouane Fellaini and Dries Mertens earned a win for the European side. Coach Vahid Halihodzic was unhappy with his team’s approach of sitting back and defending deep in their own zone after taking the lead, which allowed the Belgians to pile on the pressure.
The North Africans have no reported injuries or suspensions to worry about and he will also probably start this game with the same eleven players that lined up against Belgium in their opening game meaning Islam Slimani and Nabil Ghilas would have to settle for a place on the bench.
South Korea have struggled and have won just one game, losing three and drawing one of their previous five matches played. Algeria have a good recent form statistics having secured four victories and just one defeat from their last five matches played.
