World Cup 2014 Tips

Russia meet South Korea today at the 2014 World Cup, at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba.

Form

Historically, the two sides have met once, with Russia taking out a 1-0 victory.

Russian secured a 2-0 win against Morocco in their most recent match.

South Korea went down to Ghana with a disappointing 4-0 defeat in their most recent friendly.

Injuries & Suspensions

Russia are without its best midfielder and captain, Roman Shirokov, who withdrew before the World Cup.

Prediction & Tip

Interestingly, Russia’s entire 23 man squad is drawn from their domestic league, which either speaks for or against the amount of top level talent they posses. They’re exact quality remains a bit of a mystery, but should be enough to get over South Korea, who on recent results, seem to be on the decline. A 2-0 scoreline to Russia is a distinct possibility, so we’ll take the 17/2 that Ladbrokes are offering on that outcome.
