This article is a prediction for the upcoming FIFA Womens World Cup 2023.
South Korea’s journey at the World Cup this year has been filled with disappointment. It all started with the Colombia game, where they conceded a penalty goal in the first half, and Linda Caideco added another goal just nine minutes later, putting Colombia in a commanding 2-0 lead. South Korea struggled to maintain possession and managed only five shots, with three on target throughout the match. The disappointment continued in the game against Morocco, as Ibtissam Jraidi’s sixth-minute goal stunned South Korea. Despite dominating possession and taking 16 shots, they failed to find the target and ended up losing 1-0.
However, South Korea’s hopes of advancing in the World Cup are not entirely dashed. They still have a chance to progress if they can defeat Germany by a margin of five goals, and if Morocco suffers a loss. If Morocco wins or ties, South Korea will be eliminated. Even if South Korea manages to win but not by five goals, they won’t advance on a tie-break.
Germany, too, faced a recent disappointment. After thrashing Morocco 6-0, they fell to Colombia. Despite winning the possession battle and attempting 14 shots, only two found the mark. The game remained goalless until Linda Caicedo scored her second goal of the World Cup, giving Colombia the lead. In the 89th minute, Germany was awarded a penalty, which Alexandra Popp converted to equalize. However, Colombia countered and, in the seventh minute of stoppage time off a corner, Manuela Vanegas scored a header to secure a 2-1 victory for Colombia.
Germany’s path to advancement is more straightforward. A win will guarantee their progress. Even if there’s a three-way tie due to a Morocco victory against Colombia, Germany will advance on goal differential. Additionally, they will progress on a tie if Morocco fails to win. Moreover, they can still advance with a loss, as long as it’s by less than four goals, and Colombia beats Morocco.

I think Germany will win this match. They are the more experienced team and they have more quality in their squad. The Koreans will be a tough opponent, but I think Germany’s superior finishing will be the difference in the end.
