Prediction of South Korea vs Portugal World Cup 2022 Group H – In this article, we will discuss about South Korea vs Portugal prediction, this match will be decisive for each team entering the last 16 round.

The prediction for South Korea vs Portugal for the 2022 world cup is expected to be fierce because Son Heung Min and the team need to fight harder to get tickets to the last 16.

World cup 2022 schedule between South Korea vs Portugal at Education City Stadium, Al Rayyan, on Friday 2 December 2022 at 22.00 WIB broadcast via SCTV, Mentari TV and Nex Parabola live broadcasts. This match can also be watched via Vidio live streaming.

South Kora, who lost to Ghana on matchday 2 of Group H of the 2022 World Cup, must win against Portugal tonight.

If South Korea fails to get 3 points, Son Heung-min and the team will certainly not qualify for the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup. Apart from having to win, South Korea's fate also depends on the outcome of the match between Ghana vs Uruguay.

If The Black Stars or Ghana can beat Uruguay, whatever results Son Heung-ming gets and the team will accept defeat.

Currently, South Korea is ranked 3rd in Group H standings by collecting 1 point from 2 matches. Taegeuk Warriors are 2 points behind Ghana, in 2nd place and have 5 points from Portugal in the top position.

South Korea vs Portugal prediction

In order to qualify for the round of 16 world cup 2022, South Korea should be able to beat Portugal with a big score.

Teaguk Warriors currently have 1 point from 1 draw, and 1 loss, and scored 2 goals and conceded 3 goals.

Assuming South Korea can beat Portugal and Ghana draw with Uruguay, the goal difference will be decisive.

Son Heung-min and the team only scored 2 goals and conceded 3 times (-1) in 2 group stage matches, while Ghana already has a difference of +0 because they have scored 5 goals and conceded 5 times.

If South Korea wins with a 1 goal difference with Portugal and Ghana draws with Uruguay, the two teams will have the same goal difference of +0.

If so, the productivity of the goals of the two teams will be calculated so that The Black Stars will be superior. Therefore, South Korea must beat Portugal with a score of more than 1 goal. This is not an easy matter for Gut Warriors.

Apart from Portugal having a strong defense, South Korea has also never scored more than 2 goals in normal time in the history of their participation in the world cup.

Even so, South Korea still has a chance to win because in the 2022 world cup, Taeguk Warriors managed to beat Selecao das Quinas with a score of 1-0.

In the previous match, Portugal managed to win over Uruguay with a score of 2-0.

In that match, Portugal had many chances in the first half, but until the game ended in the first round there were no goals scored.

Portugal were only able to open the scoring in the second half through Bruno Fernandes' action in the 54th minute after getting a chance from Raphael Guerreiro.

After scoring a goal, Portugal did not reduce the intensity of its attackers, so Bruni Fernandes managed to score the second goal via a penalty kick to be precise in the 90+3 minute.

This result leaves Portugal in first place with six points and is a team that has never won a draw or received a defeat.

Head to Head (H2H) South Korea vs Portugal

South Korea and Portugal have met once in the 2022 World Cup group stage.

In the 2022 edition of the World Cup which was held in South Korea - Japan, the Taeguk Warriors managed to win with a narrow score of 0-1.

However, these results cannot be used as a reference because each team has experienced many squad changes.

Moreover, Portugal in the 2022 world cup managed to shine and be sharp by scoring 5 goals in 2 matches, and became the first team in group H to qualify for the round of 16.

Prediction of South Korea vs Portugal line-ups

South Korea is coached by Paulo Bento who is expected to appear in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Son Heung-min is predicted to remain the leader of the Taeguk Warriors attack, with Hwang Ui-jo being the target man in the forefront.

Meanwhile, Portugal, which has been confirmed for qualifying for the last 16, is expected to provide an opportunity for a number of players who haven't got playing time, such as Rafael Leao, Diogo Dalon and others.

The 4-3-3 formation is predicted to be used by Portugal with Andre Silva, Rafael Leao and Joao Mario, who will be given the opportunity to play from the start of the match.

  1. South Korea (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Yun, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Hwang In-Beom, Jung Woo-Young; Na Sang-ho, Hwang Hee-Chan, Son Heung-min; Hwang Ui Jo. Coach: Paulo Bento
  2. Portugal (4-3-3): Diogo Costa; João Cancelo, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Nuno Mendes; Rúben Neves, William Carvalho, Vitinha; Joao Mario, Andre Silva, Rafael Leao. Coach: Fernando Santos

Preview South Korea vs Portugal

South Korea's position on the verge of qualifying for the Top 16 was exacerbated by their failure to get any points when they beat Ghana on matchday 2, although they caught up after trailing by two goals.

With one point, South Korea is in third place, two points behind Ghana in second. However, South Korea will start the second half of the match at a huge disadvantage.

With coach Paulo Bento absent due to a red card, the Taeguk Warriors will be without their team leader. It's not ideal to adapt strategy based on what's happening on the pitch.

Sergio Costa, Bento's assistant, is now responsible for delivering the team's pre-match instructions. To improve things, Costa will have to use his coaching skills.

But Portugal are determined to eliminate Group H. Portugal are hoping to secure first place and avoid a possible clash with Brazil in the last 16.

Without the South Korean coach on the sidelines, we don't see any advantage. Portugal is wary of South Korea because Korea played well in the previous two matches despite losing both of them.
