Major South Korea vs Portugal predictions, and top odds for this World Cup game

With one foot out of the World Cup, South Korea will be crossing their fingers for the best possible outcome on the 2nd of December. They don’t have their future in their hands as they are also waiting for a good outcome from the Ghana vs Uruguay clash but that doesn’t mean that coach Paulo Bento’s boys will do their best to make their country proud.

That being said, Portugal remain the heavyweights in Group H and are expected to pile on the pressure against South Korea as well. We’re convinced that Fernando Santos’ players won’t settle for two victories and would like to get the full set of points. Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates are quite passionate about the idea of finally bringing the World Cup gold to Lisbon and seeing as this would be CR7’s swansong with the national jersey, we expect The Navigators to be at their lethal best.

South Korea need a massive victory and that’ll only open up more spaces for the lighting-quick Portuguese attackers to exploit. Without a doubt this game will be among the most interesting on the 2nd of December and our South Korea vs Portugal prediction is oriented towards a solid European performance.

Players to watch in the South Korea vs Portugal clash

South Korea

Heung-min Son: There’s not a discussion there, this isn’t Heung-min Son’s best season. He was undoubtedly among the best players in the World last season, certainly the best in the English Premier League as he bagged 23 goals in only 35 games thus leaving some amazing goal-scorers behind him. He’ll certainly be one to watch against Portugal.

Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo: The Portuguese goal-scoring genius has been ever-present for The Navigators in his career. He was the culprit to blame for Portugal’s success at the World Cup back in 2016. CR7 is also the leading all-time goal-scorer in international games and we’re convinced that he’ll be at his lethal best for Portugal on the 2nd of December.

Top South Korea vs Portugal odds, predictions, and betting lines for the Group H World Cup game

Here are our top South Korea vs Portugal betting tips for this last group fixture.

Portugal - Over 1.5 goals @ -133

Portugal managed to bag at least two goals in both of their World Cup games so far. The Navigators were actually close to a third against Uruguay but the luck wasn’t on their side in the last few attacking chances. Nevertheless, La Celeste too had their fair share of opportunities in front of Diogo Costa’s goal.

With South Korea on a hunt for an impressive victory against Portugal, Fernando Santos’ strategy for this game will undoubtedly include plenty of counter-attacking moves. And we all know how lethal Portugal can be on the counterattack. They have some of the best-attacking players in the World. When a team has Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Bernardo Silva in its attacking trio, you kind of expect them to score plenty of goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo to score @ +105

CR7 is a living legend. He’s already one of the best players in history and he continues to prove it in every single Portugal game. Cristiano Ronaldo is not only the all-time goal-scorer for Portugal but also the best scorer in international games in the World. He currently has a total of 118 goals in 193 international appearances and we can’t wait to see him hammering away against this troubled South Korean defense.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2022/23 season so far hasn’t been to his liking but we’re convinced that his charisma and can-do attitude will be the ones that will bring him glory this season. He already bagged one goal for Portugal in the group stage and was close to a second against Uruguay.
