Predicted Portugal XI vs South Korea

Portugal play South Korea in the final round of the World Cup group stages.

Having already booked their place in the round of last 16, Portugal will only finish second in the group if Ghana can overcome a goal difference of three goals between the two teams.

Fernando Santos is only expected to include one player from La Liga in the form of William Carvalho. The Real Betis midfielder will probably start in the middle of the pitch alongside João Palhinha and Bruno Fernandes.

Winning the group would allow Portugal to avoid Brazil in the knock-out rounds, who look more than likely to top Group G.

Predicted Portugal lineup against South Korea

AS predict that Santos will field the following starting XI against South Korea: Diogo Costa – João Cancelo, Antonio Silva, Pepe, Raphaël Guerreiro – João Palhinha, Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho, Rafael Leão – Cristiano Ronaldo.

The match is set to kick off at 4 pm CET.
