FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: South Korea vs. Portugal Prediction

South Korea is in a tough position in Group H. It needs to win against undefeated Portugal and hope that Ghana loses to Uruguay on the other side. Only then will Bento’s side qualify for the Round of 16 at the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Portugal wants to proceed with a clean sheet of three wins, something that no team has been able to do till now. South Korea, on the other hand, looks to go all out on the football field.

Portugal – 9 vs. South Korea – 28

Santos wants to lead his team to the Round of 16 by winning three games in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 pool stages. His team agrees with his vision; however, opponents are coming with a stronger sense of survival. South Korea is looking at the final group fixture as a must-win event. As Uruguay must overcome Ghana simultaneously and by a slim margin, that will only boost the odds of qualifying.

Portugal will head out with a better record in the previous six games. The side has won 4 games and lost 2 games without landing a draw. Three times, South Korea has been able to secure a victory, with the other two games ending in draws and one loss.

South Korea has its players in fit condition. Cho Gue-sung scored a double against Ghana. That remains a major highlight even though South Korea lost the match 3-2 after Kudus netted the ball in the last minutes of the game.

It was a goalless draw against Uruguay, with South Korea being able to take only seven shots as compared to 10 by the opponent.

Portugal has won all its pool-stage matches. Expectations are high that the southern European country will be able to make it to the next stage without losing a single event. And hence, Portugal is hot favorite among bettors from the fifa sports betting sites.

The only concerns are Mendes and Danilo, with both being ruled out due to muscle injuries and fractured ribs, respectively. Otavio’s presence is also dubious after he was last seen benched by the manager against Uruguay.

Predictions for the crucial match, as of now, stand in favor of Portugal leading 2-1 against South Korea.
