Germany will have to see off South Korea in their final Group F game in the 2018 FIFA World Cup when the two square off at the Kazan Arena on 27th June. Defending Champions, Germany, look strong enough to end up as the champions yet again as they’ve been in some rampaging form of late. While Germany seems set to make it through to the round of 16, South Korea will have to walk out of this game with at least a point somehow. While South Korea’s attack has managed to score a goal in almost every match, their defense has failed to keep a clean sheet in all those matches. With Germany’s attack at their ruthless best, South Korea will have to get rid of their defending woes if they’re to understand that all important point.
With a leaky South Korean defense and a lethal German attack, a goal fest is definitely on the cards. The Kazan Arena will have voices pitching over its maximum limit with both South Korea and Germany relying more on their forward lineups. The match will be a great watch for all the football fans across the globe. To help all of those fans catch all the action from this breathtaking match between Germany and South Korea, we’ve got everything right from the schedule to the live stream channels covered.

The final group game for defending champions will be played at the Kazan Arena where they’ll face South Korea on 27th June with action scheduled to kick-off at 17:00 local time. It will be the final group stage game as the 45,000+ capacity stadium will host a round of 16 matches and a quarter-final after that. It will serve as the home ground for Russian Premier League side, Rubin Kazan.
While South Korea will look to somehow plug in their defensive loopholes, Germany will try to get their perfect playing XI sorted. Germany has way too many start performers in their squad. Even their bench has been good enough to rout minnows 7-0 or 8-0. South Korea, on the other hand, have limited resources to rely on. Here is how the two sides may look like against each other.
Germany Probable XI
Ter Stegen (GK); Rudiger, Sule, Ginter, Kimmich; Draxler, Gundogan, Sane, Ozil; Muller, Wagner
South Korea Probable XI
Seung-gyu (GK); Young-gwon Kim, Hyun-soo Jang, Kee-hee Kim, Jeong-ho Hong; Heung-min Son, Woo-young Jung, Keun-ho Lee; Shin-wook Kim, Dong-won Jee, Ui-jo Hwang

Who will win?
Germany looks at least twice stronger than their opponents South Korea on paper. South Korea’s only chances to lie with Germany, as a slip up from the defending champions would be the only way for South Korea to get the better of their opponents. South Korea’s attack can be a threat on their day, but the German defense wall looks a bit too solid for them to breach. Germany is not a complete side though as their front line doesn’t look as strong as it has been for years now. South Korea will score but won’t be able to score more than the Germans. Our final scoreline prediction reads Germany 3-1 South Korea.
