South Korea to Win

Reason for tip

A must-win game for both as they look to keep their Last 16 hopes alive and it’s South Korea who are expected to come out on top at the Education City Stadium. Not many gave South Korea a chance against Uruguay and they would have taken a lot of confidence from the hard-earned point.

South Korea 2-1

Reason for tip

Both of these sides will know that anything other than a victory will likely put the Last 16 out of reach. This could lead to an open game of football and one that could see plenty of goal-mouth action, as both sides will fancy their chances.

Son Heung Min To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

South Korea are expected to be much more adventurous against Ghana and Heung-Min Son could prove the difference between the two sides. Son has scored four times in his last five appearances for South Korea and a chance can be taken on the Spurs man to score anytime.

South Korea vs Ghana Predictions

  • Ghana have failed to win any of their last four World Cup group stage matches
  • South Korea have lost two of their last 17 competitive fixtures
  • Heung-Min Son has scored four times in his last five appearances for South Korea

Both sides will know the importance of a victory 

South Korea and Ghana will both be encouraged by their performances in their respective Group H openers. South Korea earned a hard-fought point against Uruguay, while Ghana, who despite some late pressure, fell to a 3-2 defeat against Portugal. Monday’s game at Education City Stadium, in Al Rayyan, holds added significance should these two teams envisage reaching the Last 16 in Qatar.

South Korea impressed against Uruguay

Not many gave South Korea a chance against Uruguay in their opening group game and whilst they didn’t muster a shot on target, South Korea more than held their own and arguably created the best chance of the game, which was spurned by striker Hwang Ui-Jo in the first half. South Korea will know their chances of qualifying from Group H rest on picking up three points against Ghana and they will have taken plenty of encouragement from Thursday’s draw.

Expect goals in an open game

Both of these sides will know that anything other than a victory will likely put the Last 16 out of reach. This could lead to an open game of football and one that could see plenty of goal-mouth action, as both sides will fancy their chances. Expect South Korea to be more adventurous than they were against Uruguay, while Ghana certainly didn’t hold back against Portugal in their group opener. While South Korea will be the main selection, both teams to score and over 2.5 match goals are also appealing propositions.

Tottenham striker Son could have a huge say

Tottenham striker Heung-Min Son is the poster boy of the South Korea National Team and could have a huge say in Monday’s crunch game against Ghana. Son has scored four times in his last five appearances for South Korea and only just recovered from a facial injury in time to play against Uruguay. South Korea are expected to be much more adventurous against Ghana and Son could prove the difference between the two sides. A chance can be taken on the Spurs man to score anytime.

South Korea to win in the outright market will be the main selection for Monday’s game at Education City Stadium, with a 2-1 score line forming the correct score prediction. Punters looking for an anytime scorer bet, are pointed in the direction of Heung-Min Son – the Tottenham forward has scored four times in his last five appearances for his national team.
