Sweden are not one of the teams that have had a lot of success in the World Cup. However, they did a really great effort in order to go through the Qualifiers. They will now start their Russian trip on Monday, when they will play against South Korea. South Korea only have a few players who can make a difference in the pitch. They have the least chances to qualify from the group, but they will fight. World Cup Sweden vs South Korea Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-18-18, 08:00 EDT
Spread: South Korea +0.5
Total: 2 Goals
After two consecutive failed tries to reach the World Cup, Sweden have finally done it despite losing one of their biggest assets. Forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is at the twilight of his career and was left out of the squad. Even so, Sweden have come a long way in order to be here as they fought really hard in the qualifiers. They did manage to eliminated the Netherlands in the group stage, and Italy in the playoffs after that. The team have a better teamwork, as they don’t have a star-player to go to. The match against South Korea is a must win if Sweden want to have chances for qualifying.
On the other hand, South Korea are not new to this competition, as this is their tenth time in the World Cup. They might be one of the most successful teams in Asia, but they struggled in the qualifiers. They eventually finished 2nd in their respective group that also featured Iran, Syria, Uzbekistan, China and Qatar. South Korea can solely rely in the outbursts of two single players who play in the Premier League. Tottenham’s Son had an amazing season and will be the focal point of their attack. Swansea’s Ki will be the target man in the midfield, but that’s about it for South Korea.
Neither Sweden nor South Korea did very good in their warm-up friendlies in recent months. Sweden only defeated Denmark in their six friendlies in 2018, while South Korea only won three of their own.
This is considered to be the easiest match for both teams, but it is Sweden who will be anxious to win. A loss for any team here would destroy their qualifying chances, so they will both fight hard for the win. Sweden are slightly better overall, but I believe that we will see a very careful match here.
