First half/Second half - Brazil/Brazil
Richarlison to score
Brazil vs South Korea betting tips, betting lines, and picks
South Korea impressed the soccer world with a crazy-good Group H performance. It was a nail-biting race that had many unknowns up until the very last second of the Ghana vs Uruguay clash but in the end it was South Korea who were the fortunate ones to earn a game against Brazil.
Brazil are the top favorites to win the World Cup this year and it’s hard to argue with the bookies on this one. Coach Tite has some of the World’s best players in his squad and he’s utilizing them to the fullest. The bad news for him is that Neymar got injured by that reckless Nikola Milenkovic tackle and we still don’t know when he’ll be returning for Brazil.
That being said, Tite has enough players at his disposal. With Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison, Raphinha, and Vinicius Junior up front, it’s always an easy task to win your games. Our top Brazil vs South Korea prediction is for an easy victory for Celesao but we also predict world-class entertainment at Stadium 974 on the 5th of December.
Players to watch in the Brazil vs South Korea clash
Alisson Becker: Liverpool’s star goalkeeper is among the best in the World. He didn’t concede a single goal in the two opening World Cup games and was given a well-deserved rest for the Cameroon clash a couple of days ago. Ederson had to replace him and he immediately conceded a late 92nd-minute goal. We expect Alisson Becker to be at his lethal best if Brazil are to get a comfortable result here.
Heung-min Son: There are very few players in the world who are even remotely close to Heung-min Son in terms of dribbling skills. Yes, Heung-min Son didn’t score a goal so far with South Korea but he did give an assist and it’s due to his insanely-good dribbling skills that make the defenders go crazy. Brazil have some slow players at the back and Heung-min Son might just benefit from his quick feet.

Brazil vs South Korea odds: First half/Second half – Brazil/Brazil @ -109
Brazil are the top favorites to win the World Cup for a reason. Coach Tite has immense talent on his roster, players which other managers would kill to have. We expect Neymar to be back in the starting XI in the next game so his teammates will have to defeat South Korea without him.
This wouldn’t be much of an issue as South Korea were somewhat fortunate to qualify for the round of 16. Uruguay were robbed by the ref in the Ghana clash in Group H and it was South Korea who benefited the most. It’s not that the South Koreans didn’t perform well in their Group H games, it’s just that Uruguay deserved the round of 16 spot the most.
Nevertheless, Brazil are a force to be reckoned with and the South Korean players will have to be at their lethal best if the team is to surprisingly defeat Brazil.
Brazil vs South Korea odds: Richarlison to score @ +115
Richarlison’s lovely brace against Serbia was a work of art! His second goal is probably going to win the best goal of the tournament award if we don’t see something sensational in the games to come.
With Neymar out injured, it’s Richarlison who stepped up for his country and was the main man in attack in the opening two games. He was everywhere for Brazil and our Brazil vs South Korea prediction is for an amazing Richarlison performance at Stadium 974 on the 5th of December.
Furthermore, coach Tite isn’t going to be able to count on Gabriel Jesus who got injured in the Cameroon clash a couple of days. The Arsenal star was having a great season so far and it’s a shame to see him get injured like that. But this will only open up more spaces for Richarlison to exploit as he will be the focal point of attack on Monday.
