Brazil vs South Korea World Cup 2022 Prediction

Even though they lost to Cameroon in the last round of group stages, Brazil secured the top spot. Meanwhile, South Korea managed to get through with a late goal in their final match. Today, the two teams will fight for a spot in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup and we're expecting an entertaining 90-minutes at Stadium 974.

 

Brazil to Win and Lead at Half Time

There is little doubt who will emerge victorious from this duel, with all due respect to South Korea. Yes, Brazil did lose to Cameroon in the last round of group stages, but they played their reserve team and were already in the next stage, so they didn't have a real motive. When they did have a motive, they were pretty dominant in their matches against Serbia and Switzerland, especially in defence. Meanwhile, South Korea was so close to elimination and while they have nothing to lose here, they don't have enough quality to put up a fight against Brazil. So, we expect Brazil to win after leading at half time.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

All three games that Brazil played so far in Qatar have gone under 2.5 total goals, but we can see that changing against South Korea. After all, Brazil is too good on offense and they can be vulnerable on defense, as we saw against Cameroon. On top of that, South Korea has gone over 2.5 total goals in two of their three matches so far and they will play offensively in this game too, as much as Brazil allows them. So, we expect this to be a high-scoring affair.

It's time to take a closer look at the very last odds and markets ahead of this evening's clash between Brazil and South Korea in the last 16.

Brazil odds: 3/10 (1.30)

Draw odds: 5/1 (6.00)

South Korea odds: 12/1 13.00)

Brazil are massive favourites to win this game and progress through to the Quarter-Finals but the South Americans showed that they can be beaten when they played Cameroon in their final group game. South Korea haven't set the tournament alight just yet but they do have what it takes to cause an upset today and won't be heading into the game just to make up the numbers.

If you want to put a bet on the First Goalscorer in this game then look no further than Richarilson who is currently priced at 17/4 with many bookmakers. It doesn't look like the bookmakers are expecting goals going in at both ends of the pitch this evening as a bet on BTTS is currently priced at 32/21, while the odds on BTTS – No are just 8/13.

Can South Korea Pull Off a Huge Upset?

Brazil

After beating Switzerland and Serbia in the first two matches, Brazil was already in the next stage and they were pretty certain of finishing first, although in the end they only did so on goal difference. Still, Brazil dominated when they needed to, not allowing a single shot on goal from Switzerland and Serbia combined. Clearly, they are the main favourite to win the title in Qatar and their next obstacle is South Korea, which shouldn't really pose a serious threat.

That being said, Brazil is dealing with many injury problems. Neymar should be ready for the game, but it's not sure yet and the same goes for Danilo. Meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles are out for the remainder of the tournament, while Alex Sandro will likely miss the next game as well.

Brazil Predicted Lineup:

Alisson – Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Danilo – Paqueta, Casemiro, Neymar – Raphinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr

South Korea

Despite getting into the final round with just one point after losing to Ghana and drawing with Uruguay, South Korea had a chance to reach the next stage if they could beat Portugal and the other game went their way. And in a truly exciting fashion, South Korea scored a winning goal in the last minutes against Portugal and only had to wait for Uruguay not to score another goal against Ghana. Since that happened, South Korea will get a chance to play against Brazil in Round of 16.

Meanwhile, Kim Min-jae missed the Portugal game with  calf discomfort and is still doubtful, while Lee Kang-in and Kim Young-gwon were both subbed off with physical issues, but will likely be ready for this match.

South Korea Predicted Lineup:

Seung-gyu – Moon-hwan, Kyung-won, Young-gwon, Jin-su – In-beom, Woo-young – Hee-chan, Kang-in, Heung-min – Gue-sung

Player to Watch – Neymar

While we still haven't got confirmation that Neymar will actually play against South Korea, chances are that he will. If you're not familiar, Neymar only played against Serbia in Qatar and missed the other two matches with an ankle injury. Reports ahead of South Korea say that he is close to full fitness, but it remains to be confirmed and we are hoping that we will get to see him since he is our choice as the player to watch in this Brazil team.

Neymar for Brazil: 122 caps, 75 goals (2010-2022)

Of course, that's hardly a surprising choice given that Neymar clearly is the star of this squad that's already star-studded without him. However, Neymar is their motor, the guy that has the ability to make things happen out of nowhere and whose skills command specific focus from the opposition, which then leaves plenty of room for other Brazilian players to work their magic. After all, Neymar is only three goals away from becoming Brazil's all-time goalscorer and we could see him overtake the legendary Pele soon, perhaps even by the end of the tournament in Qatar.
