Brazil vs Republic Of Korea Predictions & Betting Tips (World Cup)

 by Daniel Ngulu |

Brazil haven’t really lived up to the high expectations placed on them coming into the 2022 World Cup. They did just what was needed to get to the round of 16 which sees them facing off with the Republic of Korea on Monday as both teams seek a place in the quarter finals. Despite losing their final game in Group G, Brazil still finished top and will be looking to go past Korea who only secured passage to this stage in their final Group H game. This clash will be hosted at Stadium 974 in Doha.

Form Analysis

Brazil are coming from a 1-0 loss to African giants Cameroon, and even though they had massive changes in the squad selection, Brazil still were expected to win. They did have their chances but Cameroon’s second choice keeper Devis Mboka Epassy had a great game; laden with huge saves to keep the five-time world champions out. That loss was Brazil’s first in 18 matches and now they have to start it all over again. They have three clean sheets in their last five matches and a better starting point will be that they have failed to score in just one of their last 11 matches. Brazil and Korea have met three times before, all in friendly matches, which Brazil have won; 5-1, 3-0 and 2-0 and even in their underwhelming form at this World Cup, they will still be expected to beat Korea. By their standards, Brazil have struggled to score goals at this competition, and all their three matches have produced under 2.5 goals as a result. All their three goals at this competition have come in the second half. South Korea managed a win in their final group game, and with it came qualification to this stage. Them being at this stage was at the expense of Uruguay, who needed just one more goal in their win over Ghana. They qualified here with four points, one of the lowest tallies among the teams at this stage and they can only eye improvement. They have lost two of their last seven matches and have managed just one clean sheet in their three matches at this competition, though in their last two matches they have scored more than a goal. Their win over Portugal in the final group game was only their second in 12 World Cup matches. Korea have four goals in this competition, and three of them have come in the second half.

Squad analysis

As Brazil prepares for this game, the major focus will be on Neymar Jr. The PSG star got hurt in their opening game of this competition and has been out since, with initial plans to have him back in the knockout rounds. However, there is still no news over his availability and Brazil fans wait with bated breath. The opening three matches have taken a toll on the Brazil players; apart from Neymar, Danilo and Alex Sandro also missed the last group game with injury and it got worse for the Samba Boys as now Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles have been ruled out of the tournament after getting hurt in the loss to Cameroon. Brazil manager Tite made nine changes for the Cameroon game and here, he will have his well rested starters back so we expected to see the likes of Thiago Silva, Alisson Becker, Casemiro and Richarlison all restored to the starting team. Meanwhile, South Korea have no injury concerns. Hwang Hee-Chan started the tournament with concerns over a hamstring injury but his goal against Portugal in the 90th minute is the reason Korea have graced this stage of the competition at the expense of Uruguay.

Brazil - Republic Of Korea key points

  1. Brazil have one loss in their last 18 matches.
  2. Brazil have three clean sheets in the last five matches.
  3. Brazil have nine wins in their last 10 matches.
  4. South Korea have conceded in 10 of their last 13 World Cup matches.
  5. Korea have managed just one win in their three games in this competition.

Our Brazil vs Republic Of Korea prediction

While Brazil had the comfort of making nine changes to their starting team for the Cameroon game, Korea went into theirs in full force, with all their best available players. This will be a crucial consideration, considering also that Brazil has more squad depth than South Korea. With their top stars returning, and Brazil having also done well in the run up to this game, we will back them to win as our top pick.

Other interesting tips

Under 2.5 goals - odds : 1.9 at Bet365

Brazil have struggled to open up opponents and as a result they haven’t been scoring a lot. All three of their matches in this competition have produced under 2.5 goals and we expect them to meet a defensive Korea side. That means Brazil will not have the easiest of matches, while Korea’s focus on defence will mean attack is sacrificed, a perfect combination for under 2.5 goals.

Half with the most goals - second half - odds : 1.95 at Bet365

Brazil have scored all of their goals in this competition in the second half. They’ve mostly broken down opponents’ resistance after tiring them and this is a strategy we expect with this game too. However, Korea have proven they can come to the party late and spoil it. Three of their four goals in this competition have come in the second half and we will back the second half to have the most goals in this game too.
