Argentina head to the Soccer City Stadium to play South Korea in their second match in Group B of the 2018 World Cup, Diego Maradona's team picked up a first group win over Nigeria on Saturday and a win here may well all but secure their passage to the last 16. The Argentinians are as always well backed to lift the trophy but they were poor in qualification meaning support for them has drifted somewhat over the last year, despite that they still possess world class players which makes them capable of beating anyone.

South Korea meanwhile beat Greece in the first match and know that a draw against Argentina will put them in the boxseat to qualify for the second round. They were Semi-Finalists in 2002 but that looks unlikely this time around. South Korea qualified with relative ease due to the weak nature of their section but they are expected to struggle in this World Cup and particulalry against the might of Argentina.

Argentina v South Korea Match Odds

As expected it is Argentina who are the strong favourites and they are indeed odds-on to take the three points and move a step closer to the knock-out stages. South Korea are given very little chance by the bookmakers but if they catch the Argentinians on a bad day then they may have designs on a draw but it is hard to look past Maradona's men for this one.

Latest Team News and Key Players

This match follows hot on the heels of the first round of matches leaving both Managers eager to avoid any injuries and suspensions as they start to get in the swing of tournament football. Argentina will be needing their star names to step up to the plate in South Africa, Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano will be looking to turn the heat up against South Korea. If the Argentinians are able to put out their best team against the Koreans then they will be very difficult to beat.

The South Koreans will also need to have their big names in the team for this one if they are to have even a squeak against their more illustrious rivals, Ji-Sung Park of Man United will be one of the names that will need to be playing well for the underdogs.

Past Meetings and Result

The two sides have met just the once in International Football and that was a 1-0 win for Argentina in a friendly match in 2003. South Korea are not the side they were and will struggle in this one according to the bookies and it is hard to argue with that judgement.

The final result of this one is likely to go along way to deciding the future of both teams in terms of World Cup progression and will be available for fans and punters following the final whistle.
