This one will be a tough one to call for all the bookmakers. South Korea’s lineup is better on paper than Mexico, but overall as a team, Mexico has been able to deliver better results. While South Korea has been able to score against their opponents, Mexico has managed to deny their opponents any chances of scoring. Mexico’s finishing voes, however, hand over the edge to South Korea ultimately. Our final scoreline prediction is South Korea 2-0 Mexico.
