The lunchtime kick-off on Thursday 24th November at the 2022 World Cup sees Uruguay take on South Korea at the Education City Stadium.
These two sides were drawn into Group H along with Portugal and Ghana which makes it one of the most competitive groups in this year’s tournament in terms of qualifying for the knockout stages. I wouldn’t be surprised to see any four of these teams get out of the group which could lead to some very interesting games.
Uruguay finished third in their qualification group behind Argentina and Brazil, teams who they lost to both home and away in all four matches. They finished on 28 points from 18 games which isn’t entirely convincing and it was only the four consecutive victories in their final fixtures against lesser opposition that got them through.
However, they do have many notable players such as Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Darwin Nunez, Fredrico Valverde, Ronald Araujo and Jose Gimenez and a quarter-final finish at the 2018 World Cup can’t be ignored.
South Korea finished second behind Iran in qualification, picking up 23 points from a possible 30. They’ve qualified for the last nine World Cups but have rarely progressed past the group stage other than a Round of 16 finish in 2010 and an impressive fourth when they co-hosted the 2002 World Cup along with Japan.

South Korea aren’t the most prolific of scorers and I think they may struggle in Group H. I expect Portugal and Uruguay to qualify from the group and a win for the latter in their opening game would give them a much better chance of doing so.
Odds of 3/4 for a Uruguay win are probably good enough for me but I also fancy Uruguay to win to nil which is priced at 8/5. There’s no doubt South Korea will give it their all and with Heung-Min Son in the side, they’ll always have a chance of getting on the scoresheet. However, the Spurs forward may be frustratingly short of chances throughout the tournament due to lack of quality elsewhere in the team.
As mentioned above, I expect Uruguay to win the match to nil and I think it’ll be by a score of 1-0 or 2-0.
Although Heung-Min Son is an obvious threat, I think the Spurs forwards and his teammates will be limited to just a few chances in front of goal. Therefore, I’d back BTTS – No.
Love him or hate him, Luis Suárez (5/1) is still finding the goals for his country. The former Liverpool, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid striker scored 8 in World Cup qualifying and 6 in 13 for his club this season.
Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez (11/2) has only 13 caps for his country at senior level but is an obvious threat to opponents. I’d probably side with Suárez still if they both start but wouldn’t put it past them both to get on the scoresheet.
I think Uruguay will get off to a fast start in this match, as will South Korea and so there could very well be first half goals. My money would be on Uruguay/Uruguay in the HT/FT market.
I think this game has the potential to get feisty and I’d be willing to back both sides to receive 2 or more cards.
