Sweden v South Korea – Group F
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
It is going to be a new look Sweden in Russia without their faithful Skipper and goal machine, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. After serving his national side for fifteen years he has made way for fresh blood in the squad.
Meanwhile, South Korea have one of their strongest sides since finishing fourth, when hosting the World Cup in 2002. Tottenham star, Son Heung-min has been on form this season in the Premier League and his Korean teammates will be hoping he can continue his strong performances in Russia. The forward has 20 goals for South Korea and I believe that number will rise by the end of the Summer.
However, I feel Sweden are going to keep it tight at the back in their opening game. Mix that with the teams physical nature and I can see South Korea struggling to score. The Swedish found no hassle scoring in their Qualifiers. Finding the back of the net 26 times over the duration of ten matches.
