Group E continues on Saturday with all four teams in action. The first game to kick off takes place in St. Petersburg between Mexico and South Korea.
Mexico comes into this game as the favorites, and the over/under is set at 2.5
Korea had a really disappointing loss in their first game of the World Cup losing to Sweden by a final score of 1-0.
Son Heung-min is the best player by far for South Korea and plays for Tottenham Hotspur. If South Korea is going to have success in this tournament it’s crucial that he plays really well.
In their first game against Sweden, he was barely visible not really attacking and he only had one good chance, and that isn’t enough.
Getting even a point against Sweden was crucial as they tried to advance to the knockout stage, because now they need to beat Mexico and then beat Germany for any chance to come out of this.
A couple things need to happen for South Korea to have any chance to pull the big upset in this game. The offense is going to need to find a way to score a goal, and the defense is going to need to be better.
If the defense plays like they did against Sweden, Mexico is going to have no issue putting the ball in the back of the net, a lot.
On the other side of this matchup is Mexico who had the biggest win of the opening round against the defending champs, Germany.
Coming into that game people talked about Mexico having too many injuries and how they might have problems even advancing out of this stage.
Now all they need is a win against South Korea in this game, and that should all but wrap up their spot in the knockout stage.
The most impressive thing for the Mexican side in the opening round was just how good the defense was against a very good German defense.
In this game, Mexico needs to be the more powerful team early. South Korea will let you in behind their backline, and that Mexico needs to try and take advantage of that.
They also need to control the pace. Don’t let South Korea sit back and try to dictate the pace. Mexico needs to get out early, and make life really difficult on their defense.
If Mexico can get a really early first goal, they should be able to make South Korea fold.
