World Cup Group F Preview


All eyes will be on Germany in Group F as they look to win back to back World Cup’s and this group should provide them with a relatively comfortable passage through to the knockout round. The race to finish second and qualify alongside Germany is going to be a lot closer, with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea all having a chance of doing that.


Germany

The current holders look in good shape heading into the tournament, and are currently fighting it out with Brazil for favouritism, Germany have the edge at the moment with most bookmakers. We have seen changes in the German team since their 2014 victory, but so far the conveyor belt looks to be in good working order. The experienced members of the national team who have retired have been replaced by young and hungry exciting talents, who are desperate to impress.

Mexico

The fight for second behind Germany in this group looks like being a very good contest, and the favourites to get that spot are Mexico. They have the attacking ability to finish second and score goals this summer, but whether they have the defensive strength to do that remains to be seen. The game to end the group stages between Mexico and Sweden is likely to decide who finishes second in this group, and is one to look out for.

Sweden

In what was a surprise in the European qualifying section, Sweden made it through to the World Cup finals at the expense of Italy. The Swedes often make the big tournaments like this, but their squad this year doesn’t look capable of going far, and that is if they make it out of the group stage, something that is far from certain. They are going to be battling it out with Mexico for the second spot in this group, while South Korea may also have a say in it.

South Korea

Should Mexico not be as strong as they could be then second place in this group is up for grabs, and South Korea have a chance. The bookmakers have them as outsiders to qualify, and favourites to finish bottom but there is little to choose between South Korea and Sweden, and not too much between them and Mexico. If you are looking for a team to head over to Russia, play some good football and potentially cause a shock then that team could be South Korea.

Group F Bet

I’m taking a chance here and going for the value, I think South Korea are overpriced to qualify from this group.
