South Korea vs. Ghana Betting Tips: Follow Kudus in the Shots on Target Market
The second of four matches at the World Cup on Monday is South Korea against Ghana and we are on hand to preview the game to provide you with our best bets.
South Korea managed a crucial point in their opening fixture against Uruguay which could be invaluable in their quest to make it out of what is a really competitive Group with Ghana and Portugal also.
Ghana on the other hand need to avoid defeat to South Korea in order to remain in the tournament. The Black Stars lost 3-2 to Portugal on Thursday and will be well aware they will face their nemesis from 2012 in Uruguay and Luis Suarez in Matchday 3 in the final round of fixtures.
Despite his woes with his captain’s armband Son Heung-min came through his first game since a facial injury unscathed and will be available to start again for South Korea who can be backed 31/20 to win the game. The draw is on offer at 21/10, and a win for Ghana is available at 2/1.
South Korea vs Ghana Tips
Both of our selections on Monday are with Unibet who have a new customer offer where you can receive money back as a bonus up to £40 if your first bet loses. The first of our picks comes from the shots on target market where we are backing Mohammed Kudus to record at least one in the game.
Kudus has been in excellent form for Ajax this season with five goals in the Eredivisie and another four in just five matches in the Champions League scoring against Liverpool, Napoli and Rangers. Against Portugal in Ghana’s opener, Kudus let off two shots with one of those hitting the target and with 7/5 for him to register one on target against South Korea we think this looks a generous price.
It’s another Mohammed for Ghana who is the focus of our second selection in the form of Mohammed Salisu. At the time of writing 16/5 is on offer with Unibet for Salisu to be carded on Monday although it could well be worth shopping for a bigger price closer to kick-off as more firms release their markets.
For his club Southampton Salisu was shown eight yellows and a red in 33 league matches last season and has followed that up with four in 14 to start this latest campaign. In Ghana’s match against Portugal Salisu committed three fouls, all of which went unpunished with a card and with so much on the line here he looks a prime suspect to find his way into the book on Monday.
