Based on the first round of games, it’s pretty clear who are the top two teams in Group A – here’s a clue, it’s not Nigeria or South Korea.
An opening day 4-0 defeat to France was largely expected for the South Korean side. The big question now is, are they capable of securing at least a third-place finish.
The answer will be given to us at the end of this game. Nigeria are the other contenders for that third-place finish and their campaign got underway with a 3-0 loss at the hands of Norway.
Looking at the betting, it is South Korea who have been made the favourites. Nevertheless, the recommendation is to back Nigeria.
The African side may have lost to Norway but at least they had nine attempts at goal. South Korea, on the other hand, just seemed incredibly lacklustre in their defeat to the hosts.
With that in mind, the advice is to back Nigeria in the outright market.
