South Korea have played a ton of friendlies since the World Cup qualifiers have finished, but without much success. They will now play their final friendly on Monday, when they will clash against Senegal. Senegal are also going to the World Cup and have a slightly easier job to do in the group stage. In any case, both teams will approach this match with a lot of caution. International Friendly South Korea vs Senegal Spread and Prediction.

Spread: Senegal -0.25
Total: 2 Goals
South Korea did not have a very easy job in the World Cup Qualifiers, but eventually finished 2nd in Group A (4-3-3). They did play it really safe in their last two matches, where they played for goal-less draws against Uzbekistan and Iran. Since then they have played 12 friendlies (4-5-3) without a lot of success. In their most recent they were pretty dominant against Bolivia but were stuck in a goal-less draw. They seem to have a real problem at the back, as they have only kept clean sheets against teams like Moldova, Latvia and Honduras.
On the other hand, Senegal did a really good job in the African Qualifiers as they finished at the top of Group D (4-0-2). They have a really good squad, with players who play in major European competitions. Their star player, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, is coming off a tremendous season, and he will have a great impact in this team. However, Senegal have not been very good in their friendlies lately, having not won any of their last four (0-1-3). They fought really hard against Croatia in their last match but fell by 1-2.
The two teams are pretty similar in strengths and weaknesses. They both have strong, fast players on the wings, but they are both lacking good forwards and/or defenders. Senegal have a better team overall, and this is their last chance for a morale boost.
I expect to see a careful match between two sides who will surely need to play defense in the World Cup. Besides seeing few goals here, I think that Senegal have the better chances to come out on top.
