Match Preview

A hard earned 1-0 win over Italy in the playoffs secured a first World Cup appearance for Sweden after they failed to qualify for the last three editions. Janne Andersson men have been tipped as second favorites alongside Mexico in Group F, with Brazil being slapped with the tag of potential group winners.

Nevertheless, it will take the Europeans more momentum than they have gathered so far as they've had a rather unimpressive build-up campaign to Russia 2018. Sweden, despite being undefeated in their last two games, have failed to register a win in their last four matches.

Their last win came via a 1-0 scoreline in a friendly against Denmark earlier in January. The frustration in the side is once again rehashed in the fact that Andersson's men have managed just four goals in eight appearances and have conceded five in the process. For Sweden not to repeat their shambolic campaign at the Euros two years ago, a better job will be required of them coming against Korea Republic.

The Taegeuk Warriors, on the other hand, have not done better for themselves either as they enter Monday's fixture on the back of a three-game winless run. In the goals department, the Asians have not been clinical enough. Their biggest win margin in their last 10 outings came in a 4-1 victory over Japan back in December 2017. In the last five matches, Tae-yong's team has amassed just four goals.

With the World Cup already serving up games with huge scoring margins, Korea Republic will need to brace themselves and up the ante if they do not fancy the idea of dominating headlines for all the negative reasons. And having won only one of their last nine World Cup games, it's now more than ever for the Taegeuk Warriors.
