With the Group Stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup concluded, we are now entering the final phase, the stage where many dreams of being and only 16 of the 32 teams have the chance to be, the round of 16.
In these matches, as we already know, the teams are playing for their lives in the tournament, since a defeat sends them directly home, while a victory gives them a ticket to the quarterfinals. In this phase, mistakes and slip-ups are no longer allowed, which is why each of the teams must play perfect matches to ensure their permanence in the tournament.
Starting on December 3, 2022, we will have the actions of the round of 16, and we are getting closer and closer to knowing which team will win the trophy of world champions in this edition of the World Cup.
In this opportunity, we will have the actions of the round of 16 matches between the first of Group G, the unstoppable and favorite Brazil of Tite and Neymar Jr., against the second of Group H, South Korea, which got the ticket to the round of 16 in the last minutes of the last match played.

South Korea +1200
Where Can I see It?
Why Bet on Brazil
The Canarinha, as we know the five-time world champion team, reached the round of 16 after two victories in their first two group matches against Serbia and Switzerland.
In the last match of the group against Cameroon, which has just ended, Brazil did not need to embellish to pass as first in Group G, and that is why they did not overexert themselves in the match and ended up losing with a score of 0-1.
This match is historic for the World Cup since it is the first time in history that Brazil has lost in a World Cup against an African team. In addition to this, Brazil cut short a streak of 17 consecutive matches without losing in a World Cup Group Stage, since France 98.
For this round of 16 matches, we are sure that Tite will pull out all the stops and Neymar Jr., who was injured in the first match of this World Cup, is expected to return and is said to be ready for the round of 16.
For now, Brazil has had great performances from Vinicius Jr., Raphina, and Richarlison and some good intentions from Lucas Paqueta and Casemiro.
Why Bet on South Korea
On the other hand, we have one of the big surprises of this Group Stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, South Korea. A team that managed to do their homework in the last match of group H, to take a great victory against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, with a score of 2-1.
This victory, in addition to qualifying them, meant the unexpected elimination of the Uruguayan team from this World Cup, which despite having won against Ghana 2-0, did not have the numbers to qualify.
South Korea, on the other hand, proved to be a very organized team with a very good player base led by Tottenham’s striker Son Heung-min, who commanded every Korean attack in this World Cup.
This is the third time in the history of the World Cup that the Asian team has reached the Round of 16, and they hope to continue to surprise Brazil in the Round of 16.
Final Betting Analysis: Brazil vs. South Korea
We have not seen a single bad game so far in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and we are sure that this round of 16 will be no different. Each of the teams arrives with a lot of confidence and above all, inspiration to be the new world champions.
At MyBookie.ag we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Brazil at -390, while South Korea starts at +1200.
Indeed, Brazil did not come out to play with all their starting players for the last match against Cameroon, but they must come out to play a serious match without being confident, as South Korea can easily surprise them.
We expect this to be a very serious and, above all, tight match, but we believe that Brazil has all the tools to reach the quarterfinals and continue to reaffirm their status as favorites in this World Cup.
That is why our selection is a victory for Tite’s Canarinha, for Brazil, with a score of 2-0.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Brazil. If you put $100 on Brazil at -390, you’ll be looking at a $25.64 win with a total payout of $125.64.
