In the upcoming match between the Tigers of Asia and the Navigators, we will see Son Heung-Min go up against one of the best players in the world, Christiano Ronaldo. The latest South Korea vs Portugal odds are in favour of Ronaldo’s team. However, South Korea are not to be underestimated.
South Korea has qualified for the World Cup more times than Portugal. Although, the Navigators have had more success. Furthermore, as this is probably Ronaldo’s last World Cup, he will most definitely be looking to take the championship. An ideal scenario for him, and another reason why the South Korea vs Portugal betting odds favour his team.
Read our South Korea vs Portugal prediction to learn more about this matchup.
In the qualifiers, South Korea went through two group stages. In the first stage, with weaker teams, they dominated and finished as group winners. They finished with five wins and one game ending in a draw. And also, a significant goal difference of 22:1 showed their potential. However, not enough to sway the South Korea vs Portugal betting odds in their favour.
After that, when paired against stronger teams, the Tigers of Asia have shown once again they will not be messing around. Despite finishing second, they have demonstrated that they can and will fight even with the South Korea vs Portugal odds being against them.
On the other hand, Portugal have not shown that they are one of the stronger teams in the World Cup. After eight matches in the group stage, they had five wins, one loss, and two games that ended in a draw, which placed them in second place, behind Serbia. Despite their average performance, the latest South Korea vs Portugal World Cup 2022 odds still favour them for winning this matchup.
Afterwards, they got another chance to qualify for the main stage if they went through the playoffs. Turkey was the first team they had to go through, and with 3:1, they advanced easily. In their final playoff match, they had to beat North Macedonia, which surprisingly kicked Italy out of the competition. The Navigators did not waver, and with 2:0, they got another chance in the main stage.

According to the latest South Korea vs Portugal odds, Portugal are the favourites in this matchup. Additionally, the power rankings place the Navigators way ahead of the Taegeuk Warriors. In other words, everything indicates that this will be an easy win for Portugal.
However, South Korea are not here without reason. They fought their way here and will not let things such as the latest South Korea vs Portugal odds stop them. They have shown resolve in the qualifier, and they will undoubtedly do their best to go past the group stage this year.
South Korea has qualified for the last ten World Cups. This will be the eleventh. Although they mostly didn’t get far. Their most significant success was in 2002 when they finished in fourth place.
Other than that, they mostly didn’t go past the group stage. This, aside from the obvious, is another reason why the latest South Korea vs Portugal odds are in favour of the latter.
Something similar is expected this time too. They are in a group with Portugal and Uruguay, who are stronger on paper. Additionally, Ghana has shown a lot of potential this year. In other words, the odds for South Korea to beat Portugal are very slim. But of course, they are never zero.
All that it takes for South Korea to steal the win is for Portugal to underestimate them. And we have seen the Navigators taking other teams lightly. They barely qualified for the main stage, and if they continue like this, they won’t get far.
