South Korea will face Vietnam in a curious friendly international game during the ongoing break.

South Korea vs Vietnam Predictions and Top Betting Tips

South Korea vs Vietnam should be a pre-decided contest even when it is a friendly match. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: No

We wouldn't believe it if South Korea concede a goal in this match. Not that Vietnam are that bad but they are on a lower level than their opponents. More importantly, South Korea have really had an unbelievable generation right now and they have not been this good in decades. They recently played a friendly match against Tunisia and beat them 4-0 too.

Team To Score In Both Halves: South Korea

We definitely never thought that South Korea could be a high-scoring national team but their attack seems to be in top shape right now or over the past couple of years. If you remember their World Cup performances, they scored multiple goals against teams like Portugal, Brazil, Ghana. They are with their best squad here, so we can expect at least 2-3 goals from them.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-0 to South Korea

Vietnam may lose this game with a lot more than 3 goals but we think that South Korea don't really have to push for more than that scoreline. This is a pointless fixture and they should be careful with the big stars. When we compare the South Korea vs Vietnam line ups, we definitely see a huge advantage in favor of the home side.

South Korea vs Vietnam Team Previews

South Korea Preview

South Korea have not had much success in 2023 but they only played friendly matches. They have not had an official game since the World Cup in 2022. Their defense seems to be improving and the team looked impressive in the last two games. We expect them to continue to improve and they will be with their best squad in this match.

Vietnam Preview

Vietnam had an unbelievable period in late 2022 and early 2023 when they reached the final of the AFF Championship. Unfortunately, they lost that game. This is a team that performs well against most teams they meet but we have to mention that they are not used to facing tough teams like South Korea.
