Sweden were in charge of one of the greatest bombshell of 2017 when they vanquished Italy in the play-offs for tickets to Russia. 

South Korea met all requirements for each World Cup since 1986, in any case, they have made through the gathering stage just twice. The Asian heavyweights didn't have the best of keeps running in the qualifying stages also. They could have passed up a great opportunity notwithstanding Syria to lose by a thin edge to Iran in the last qualifying bunch amusement. 

Shin Tae-yong's men likewise neglected to awe in the friendlies since and have overseen only 1 win from their last 6 matches. It won't be an amazement to see them complete at the base of the gathering.

Sweden vs South Korea Predictions 

Sweden have a much better group than their rivals, yet they ended up in the wrong foot off late. They took the trip to Russia on the back of a four match win-less run and haven't scored in the most recent three. This is very like what occurred at the Euro 2016 when the group neglected to traverse the gathering stage without a win and scoring just once. 

Then again, South Korea haven't won a diversion outside their nation of origin since 2016. They additionally attempted to score goals which is affirmed by the 2 goals scored from 5 qualifying matches. They are at present on a 12 coordinate win-less flee from home, drew 4 and lost 6. 

Thus, we need to feature these two factors previously making the forecasts – first their poor type of these two sides and after that their powerlessness to score goals. Hence, under 2.5 goals must be our first choice in a potential goal less stalemate.
