South Korea-Mexico World Cup 2018

Confidence levels should be sky high among Mexico’s players after they secured a 1-0 victory over defending champion Germany in their World Cup opener. The Germans are the number one team in the FIFA world rankings and the second favorites to win the tournament, but Juan Carlos Osorio’s men produced a fearless performance and deserved their win. Mexico now has a brilliant opportunity to top the group, and it should extend its winning run when South Korea-Mexico World Cup 2018 plays on Saturday.

South Korea lost opening game

The Koreans’ limitations were exposed in a 1-0 defeat against Sweden on Monday, and Mexico is the favorite to win this game. Leading sportsbooks like Bet365 and Bethard are offering odds of -181 on a Mexico win in the shiny new Rostov Stadium on Saturday. If they display similar levels of passion, energy and dynamism, they should have little trouble securing victory. They defended diligently, overran the Germans in midfield and launched several rapid counter-attacks that caught their opponents cold. Javier Hernandez was excellent throughout, and he created space for Hirving Lozano to lash in the winner.

The South Korea-Mexico World Cup 2018 game will have the colourful Mexican contingent in the stadium erupted in jubilation, and they matched their team’s intensity throughout. Expect more stirring scenes in the Rostov Stadium on Saturday, as the fans roar El Tri on. Winning the group could be crucial for Mexico, as it could secure a more comfortable last 16 tie and give it a great chance of ending a run of six straight eliminations at that stage of the competition. After toppling Germany, Mexico is now +4000 to win the World Cup with Bet365 and various others, and that will surely appeal to some supporters.

If you want more value out of the South Korea-Mexico World Cup 2018 game, you could try Mexico to win at half-time and full-time (+130 with Bet365). Under 2.5 goals also looks interesting at -137, as South Korea was toothless in attack against Sweden, and Mexico’s defenders should keep things tight once more.
