Group F, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -5

FIFA World Cup 2018

KOR vs SWE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Sweden will try to fill up the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic who retired after being eliminated in Euro 2016. Neither did he play the qualifiers nor did he announce that he would come out of his retirement for the World Cup. Sweden will march off their World Cup campaign by locking horns with South Korea. However, Sweden has learned to build up its team without Zlatan and marked a new era without him by defeating France at home and then defeating Italy on their way to Russia.

Even without Zlatan, Sweden is most likely to go to the next round in this world cup. Though being clubbed with Germany, Mexico and South Korea in the same group they would want to hold on to the second position on the points table because it’s unlikely that they can beat Germany to take the first position that is why this match is crucial for them and they would do everything to register a win in this game. They have been in good form only lost three of their last 10 matches and would start this game as the favourites.

The Asian side however is not in great form with one win in their last six games they are and being handed defeat in the hands of Bolivia, Senegal and Bosnia-Herzegovina they are expected to be the last team in their group but this football things can turn around in a matter of seconds so let’s hope that this Korea is also able to start world domination.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group F, 2nd match is to be played at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium at 13:00 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 5 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

  3. South Korea has lost four of their last 10 World Cup games

Important updates –

With Germany and Mexico also in this Group F, this is a must-win game for both these teams. There have been just two games between Sweden and South Korea with both the games ending in draws.

As far as squad is concerned, there is no God Zlatan Ibrahimovic here for the Swedes, but the young crop is talented enough to force their way into the knockout stages. The likes of Lindelof, Larsson, and Forsberg are household names in European football and will most probably start this game.

 

 

KOR vs SWE Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

 

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Much of this match is riding on the outcome of Germany-Mexico in the Group F opener on Sunday and both Sweden and South Korea will hope to secure a crucial three points. Sweden haven’t won in five and haven’t scored more than one goal in a match since an 8-0 win over Luxembourg last October, while South Korea have won only one of their last six matches, losing four of those. We could witness a low-scoring affair here, which Sweden could edge.
