Sweden vs Korea Republic Prediction 18 June 2018

Tournament: World Cup 2018
Location: Stadion Nizhny Novgorod
Match date: 18.06.2018 at 13:00

On June 18 2018 at 13:00 at the Stadion Nizhny Novgorod in the upcoming first round match of the World Cup group stage Sweden national football team will play against Kore Republic national team. None of the teams is in the list of the strongest teams of the competition and yet one of them will still be able to make it to the next stage of the competition alongside with Germany. That’s why both Sweden and Korea really need to win this time.

Sweden haven’t played at the World Cup for 12 years already and during those years a few famous players finished their careers. Now Sweden are only strong due to their great cooperation and also due to the fact that they are extremely reliable in defense. These were the reasons why they managed to outplay Italy in the play-offs of the qualification and that is probably the factor they will be trying to use at the Mundial to go as far as they can.

As for Republic Korea, they are going to participate at the fifth Mundial in a row. In the year 2002 they managed to make it to the semifinal and since than they never made it to the play-offs again. At the moment they only have one single world class player who plays in Tottenham. The rest of the players are by far not as strong and that’s why South Korea are considered to be the absolute outsiders of their group.

Sweden are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match and they will probably be rather pragmatic in the way they will be playing trying to concentrate on defense more than attack. In such a case Korea won’t have a lot of chances to win this time. They may draw without scoring any goal but anyway there won’t be a lot of goals scored this time.
