Competition: International friendly
Market: Colombia to beat South Korea
Odds: 21/20 @ Bet365
Club football takes a two-week break with the return of the international games. While many are often left feeling deflated by the switch to international football as they prefer the excitement of club games, they will find a number of very intriguing contests this week with the World Cup playoffs beginning. Two sides that meet in a friendly are South Korea and Colombia, with the two outfits meeting on Friday.
South Korea qualified for the World Cup by finishing in second-place behind Iran. While the top side cruised through with 22 points, second to fifth were separated by just three points in the end. South Korea managed to pick up 15 points from their 10 games by winning four, drawing three and losing three times. 11 goals scored and 10 conceded shows they are solid if unspectacular, and they will be looking to frustrate Colombia in their upcoming fixture by staying compact at the back and trying to break.
For Colombia, things were quite similar with regard to being in a tight group. While Brazil made it through to the World Cup by taking 41 points from their 18 games, Colombia had to battle until the end as they took the final automatic-qualifying spot in fourth-place, pipping Peru by just a single point. They, like South Korea, will be basking in the showpiece event next summer, and their game is the perfect chance for the managers to experiment with their team and tactics. While Colombia will face a tough test playing away, we are backing them to win and Bet365 have given them odds of 21/20 to win the game.
