Brazil had a very good 2-0 win over Serbia in their opening game of the tournament as they had 10 shots on goal to 0, with 9 shots off target to 3, and 6 corners to 4 on 59% possession. In their second game, they beat Switzerland 1-0 as they had 5 shots on target to 0, 2 shots off target to 1 and 8 corners to 3 on 54% possession. With six points and progress into the round of 16 assured, they rested quite a few of their players and though they lost 1-0 to Cameroon, not much should be taken of that.
South Korea started off with a 0-0 draw with Uruguay as they both did not have a shot on target, South Korea had 5 shots off target to 6 and e corners to 4. Next up for them was Ghana where they went down 3-2 in a very entertaining game. They had 6 shots on target to 3, with 8 shots off target to 3, and 12 corners to 5 on 63% possession. Needing a win to progress against Portugal, they did so against a side that rested a number of their players as they had enough points to progress into the next round. Still, Portugal had 4 shots on target to 6, with 6 shots off target to 4, and 4 corners to 5 on 62% possession in a pretty even game.
Though Brazil beat South Korea 5-1 in a friendly back in June, that was a friendly where teams tend to play more relaxed and looser. Expect the South Koreans to follow the example of Serbia and Switzerland and play not to lose against the Brazilians, like they did so against Uruguay. However Brazil has too much quality and they should be able to create enough chances to score in a low scoring game, while their defence should be able to handle the South Koreans
Prediction is Home Win & Over 2.5
