Education City Stadium will host Friday’s World Cup game between South Korea and Portugal, the two teams who meet for the first time since June 2002.

The Koreans did well to hold Uruguay in their opener, but they head into the match following a heart-breaking 3-2 loss to Ghana.

Head coach Paulo Bento will have to watch the game from the stands following his sending off in the defeat to the Black Stars, while Wolverhampton attacker Hwang Hee-chan should miss out with injury.

A Selecao, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record at the 2022 World Cup finals intact, and even though Fernando Santos should mix the squad against Korea, away win should be considered.

Cristiano Ronaldo should be rested, with Milan ace Rafael Leao likely to step up. Gonzalo Ramos and Joao Palhinha are pushing for a start as well.

This match will be played on 02/12/2022 at 16:00

Prediction: BTTS.
