Colombia vs South Korea predictions and odds for the Women’s World Cup

Our football expert provides his best bets ahead of Colombia vs South Korea in the Women’s World Cup. 

The bookmakers are struggling to separate these teams ahead of this clash. South Korea were runners-up in the Asian Cup and they are taking on the runners-up of the Women’s Copa America.

Colombia vs South Korea Predictions & Betting Tips

  • South Korea to win @ 13/8 Bet9ja
  • Geum Min Lee to score anytime @ 9/2 Bet9ja
  • G/G – Goal/Goal (both teams to score) @ 11/10 Bet9ja

South Korea to come out on top

The first of our Colombia vs South Korea Women’s World Cup tips is for South Korea to win the match.

 Colombia have one just one of their last five matches coming into this tournament. This solitary victory came against Panama. They will need to rediscover the form which saw them make it to the final of last year’s Copa America if they have any hopes of making it out of this difficult group.

South Korea have a poor record at Women’s World Cups. They failed to pick up a single point in 2019 but results in recent years have seen them climb up to 17th in the world rankings. They have won their last three matches and earned a notable win over Australia on their way to the Asian Cup final.

 The Colombians have already lost against Italy in 2023. The Italians are ranked one place above South Korea in the FIFA world rankings so it acts as a good barometer for this game.

Geum Min Lee’s rich vein of form for South Korea to continue

 The second of our predictions is Geum Mn Lee to find the net.

South Korea have a wealth of talent in forward areas. Ji So-Yun has vast experience in women’s football and is her country’s all-time leading goal scorer. She also has a knack for bringing her teammates into play.

A player who should benefit from Ji’s progressive passing is Geum Min Lee. She has operated behind the striker in her recent matches for South Korea and managed to score five goals in her last three international caps.

Lee hasn’t been as prolific in her recent games for Brighton but she may have some joy against a Colombia defence that has kept one clean sheet in its last six matches.

Chances at both ends

Finally, I’m backing both teams to score in the match. This game is hugely important in the landscape of the group so three points would be a massive boost for either side. As such, I’m expecting both Colombia and South Korea to show a great deal of attacking intent.

South Korea’s only clean sheet in 2023 came against Zambia. They are averaging four goals per game, but that attacking intent has come at a cost in terms of defensive solidity.

Colombia are no slouches going forward. They haven’t failed to score in a match since they were beaten by Brazil in the Copa America final; that’s a run of 14 matches. Over that period they are averaging 1.5 goals per game.
