Although Argentina are the expected favorites in this match up, South Korea have proven they are a good enough side to pull of an upset, beating 2004 European champions Greece, 2-0 in game one of the group stage a week ago Thursday.

If you like to champion the underdog or think the Taeguk Warriors might pull some dark horse stuff out of the bag like they did in the 2002 World Cup, then you can get some pretty long odds on them winning this game.

However, with the strength of this Argentina squad, this is setting up to be a fixture they will really struggle to get any points from. World Cup Betting

La Albiceleste started their World Cup campaign on a great note in as they defeated Nigeria 1-0. The score implies that it was a close match but in reality the South Americans were quite dominant in the victory.

However, it was revealed on Tuesday that Gabriel Heinze’s winning goal that came via a header was illegal, as a foul had been committed prior to that goal. Nevertheless the result stands and they still have three points for the victory.

On Thursday the former world champions will look to keep constant offensive pressure on South Korea ‘s defense while containing midfielder Park Ji-Sung. Experienced defenders such as Walter Samuel and Heinze will be important, but the pressure may be on the likes of Martin Demichelis and Nicolas Burdisso to prove themselves at the highest level.

South Korea made a winning start to their World Cup campaign as well, in a match that saw just one side play all the football. The Asian giants exhibited their class and quality, in contrast to Greece’s failure to do anything but play boring, ineffective football.

The Koreans are on top of Group B on goal difference after the win and they will be eager to remain in position to clinch qualification for the second round of the 2010 World Cup with a win against Argentina on Thursday. Despite the fact that Argentina is a more talented side, the Koreans are more organized, and also boast some dangerous weapons of their own.

Captain Park Ji-Sung is a midfielder of the highest caliber.

The Manchester United player appears to be thriving in the responsibility of leading his country, as shown by his well-taken goal against Greece.

Monaco striker Park Chu-young will hope to rise to the occasion in a similar fashion, having spurned opportunities in their first matchup.

I look for Argentina to maintain their momentum, making it hard to see them failing to win this match. With the number of strong potential goal scorers on their side, they should win by at least a one-goal margin.

Argentina vs. South Korea Free Pick

Therefore my prediction is 2-1 Argentina.
