(HT 1-1)

The final game of Group H will feature South Korea vs Portugal at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan. The Portuguese side is already through, so they might use this opportunity to rest some of their key players. But they are probably going to go for a win in order to secure the premier position in the group.

On the other hand, South Korea still has a chance to advance. But in order to do so, they are going to need a win, which is easier to say than to actually do against a team like Portugal.

Follow us and our South Korea vs Portugal prediction for more insight about this matchup.
