Mexico pulled off the upset of the World Cup in the first week of play beating defending champions and #1 team in the world Germany on Sunday.

That win opens the door for both Sweden and South Korea who will face off in this match and makes a win even more crucial if they hope to advance to the next round.

Sweden has been playing the underdog role very well throughout qualifying as they found themselves in a group with France and the Netherlands and managed to finish ahead of the powerhouse Dutch team. That put them in a playoff with Italy and they pulled off the stunner there as well, keeping the Italians off the board in two games and eventually winning 1-0 on aggregate.

South Korea is one of the weaker teams to qualify as they made it through to the World Cup as much by the stumbles of their competitors as by their own hand. They won just four of their ten qualifying matches to book their spot.

That led to the replacement of coach Uli Stielike with Shin Tae-Yong and ever since the switch the team has looked much faster and more cohesive. They looked great in a November friendly with Columbia and in Son Heung-Min they have a superstar striker capable of converting his chances.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the Sweden listed as +110 ML Favorites versus the South Korea, at +320 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +210.
