Uruguay seek to be proactive and attacking in Qatar

Uruguay became a mainstay team at the World Cup under Óscar Tabárez, who led the national team to fourth at the 2010 World Cup and won the Copa América in 2011. However, to hope to qualify, the ‘Proceso Era’ had to come to a close, with Diego Alonso hired for the new age of Uruguayan football. He quickly galvanised the team, flipped the script from passive play to proactive football, and is undefeated through seven games.

In the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, Alonso’s immediate impact was integral to them making it to the Qatar World Cup 2022. Four successive wins powered Uruguay to third in the CONMEBOL standings and even brought their goal difference to zero as a result. Now, the two-time World Cup winners have momentum and an exciting playing style, hoping to surpass the most recent Quarter-Finals finishes of the 2018 World Cup and 2021 Copa América.

Veterans Diego Godín, Fernando Muslera, Luis Suárez, and Edinson Cavani look set for one more run at World Cup glory, but there’s an incredibly talented batch of younger stars establishing themselves as well. Names to keep an eye on including Federico Valverde of Real Madrid, Liverpool’s new striker Darwin Núñez, Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araújo, and Tottenham Hotspur centre-mid Rodrigo Bentancur.

Name Position Matches Goals
Luis Suárez Forward 14 8
Giorgian De Arrascaeta Midfielder 8 5
Edinson Cavani Forward 9 2
Federico Valverde Midfielder 14 2

South Korea to utilise its experience in the Middle East

Portuguese manager Paulo Bento has amassed quite the impressive record since joining South Korea in 2018, with his average of 2.14 points per game exceeding his record in charge of Portugal. Still, what’s been invaluable for the manager who predominantly looks to build up play through the middle of the park has been their Middle East-stacked qualification route.

The path to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification was tough but has given the Taegeuk Warriors invaluable experience. Finishing second to Iran, South Korea had to travel to the group winners, the UAE, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. Having made it through this trial by fire, South Korea will look to escape the Group Stage for only the second time since joint-hosting in 2002.

Not a single nation can hope to get to a tournament like the Qatar World Cup 2022 by relying on one player, but Heung-min Son is certainly the star of the show. Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Hee-chan Hwang will aim to build on his bit-part showing last season to refine his skills in time for the Qatar 2022 dates, while SSC Napoli’s new centre-back, Min-jae Kim looks to become a Serie A regular and bolster Korea’s backline further.

Name Position Matches Goals
Son Heung-min Forward 12 7
Kim Shin-wook Forward 4 6
Kwon Chang-hoon Forward 11 4
Hwang Hee-chan Forward 13 3
Kim Young-gwon Defender 12 2
Hwang Ui-jo Forward 12 2

Betting tips and odds on Uruguay vs South Korea in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group H

As is often the case when these clashes occur, the bookies tend to side with the South American side over the Asian side, predominantly because of the historical quality of sides that emerge from South America. This is the case coming into this FIFA World Cup 2022 Group H clash, too, with Uruguay tipped at 4/5 to beat the 4/1 South Korea.

Uruguay does boast a team stacked with talents who play in top European divisions, and they are the clear 2/1 second-favourites to win Group H, while South Korea sit on par with Ghana at 11/1. So, odds favouring La Celeste were to be expected.
