South Korea Women vs Germany Women odds
*Odds correct as of 15:00 on August 1
Well who would’ve predicted this? As we go into the final round of group stage fixtures at the 2023 Women’s World Cup, Germany are in danger of going out of the tournament. They had started it so well with a 6-0 thrashing of Morocco but last time out Germany were beaten 2-1 by Colombia, a result which leaves them second. Their destiny is still very much in their own hands with Germany knowing a win would see them qualify, but they will be wary of a slip up as Morocco are lurking.
South Korea are a big name at the World Cup and they have struggled, with two defeats from their opening two games. But the Asian nation aren’t out of it just yet. If they beat Germany by a big enough margin they could overtake Die Nationalelf and still qualify for the last 16, providing Morocco also lose to Colombia. A pipe dream, or something that could happen?

South Korea Women vs Germany Women match tip
Water is wet, Alexandra Popp scores goals. The German was the joint-top scorer at Euro 2022 last summer and crucial to Germany’s run to the final, which she missed due to injury. She is once again in the running for the Golden Boot as things stand with only Hinata Miyazawa of Japan (four) scoring more goals so far at the 2023 World Cup.
South Korea Women vs Germany Women Bet-Builder tip
Germany are heavy favourites to win especially with South Korea yet to take a point at the World Cup, but the Asian nation haven’t really tested the opposition goalkeeper either. Across their two games so far, South Korea have hit the target just three times, two fewer than Alexandra Popp. Last time out against Colombia, Lena Oberdorf returned from injury and it was like she never left, committing five fouls in 90 minutes.
