The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Monday, Nov. 28. One of the more interesting matches of the day is a Group H collision between South Korea and Ghana.

Despite being the slight underdog, South Korea battled hard against Uruguay, resulting in a 0-0 draw. to open the tournament. On the other hand, Ghana was the only team in the group to lose its first outing, picking up a 3-2 loss to Portugal.

Can South Korea win its second World Cup match in the last three tournaments? Or will Ghana bounce back from its lost by taking out its frustration on the South Koreans?

South Korea vs Ghana Prediction & Pick

More often than not, Ghana has had its upcoming opponent's number. Ghana has won three of its four all-time matchups against South Korea, outscoring the latter 10-2 in those victories.

Even though Ghana has the better offense here, South Korea's defense has come a long way since their last meeting in 2014. South Korea enjoys wearing its opponents down without taking too many risks, likely leading to yet another low-scoring affair.

I can see Ghana's offense and South Korea's defense cancelling each other out, leading to a draw.

Final Score Prediction: South Korea: 1 | Ghana: 1

South Korea vs Ghana Best Bet

Again, World Cup fans should expect a low-scoring game here. South Korea's style typically leads to few goals being scored, especially when they're in control. Even though Ghana put up a pair against Portugal, expect the former to have a more difficult time achieving that level of success on Monday.

Back the total going under 2.5 goals.

Bet: Under 2.5 Goals (-182)
