Constantly referred to as one of the dark horses for the tournament Belgium are now through the last sixteen and looking to close out group with a win. With the pressure off it will be interesting to see if Lukaku, Hazard and co are more at ease and play more of the style of football they showed while qualifyiing. Marc Wilmots has coached the side into a hard working, hard to beat team and with the talent of individuals such as Hazard there is no doubt this team could go on a deep run if they get some luck along the way. Lukaku will need to find his scoring boots if the Belgians are going to go all the way so maybe this game against a weak South Korea backline will be just what he needs.
South Korea were disappointing against Algeria, after a strong outing against Russia korea just lost their way and Algeria hit them for three early goals. Son , Ki and Park are all top players and South Korea have lots of pace and exuberance of youth. Defensively though the team is naive and facing off against a strong Belgian side this could be a rough outing.I like Belgian to find the net a few times here and I am taking the over because of it. Korea have looked vulnerable at the back and surely the quality Belgium possess will find a way through. Take the over and cash a winner. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
