The second quarter-final game of the Olympic Football Tournament puts two of the most surprising teams of the group stage face to face: South Korea and Honduras. They both showed good football and produced quite a few surprises, but only one will progress to the semi-finals, where they will be in breathing distance of an Olympic Medal.

South Korea is the favorite on paper for the game. They managed to finish the group stage undefeated, even though they played Germany and Mexico. A 1-0 win against Mexico ensured the Asians would win the group, although the Mexicans dominated most of the game, having a whopping 63% of possession.
At the end of the day, the South Koreans were more pragmatic, like in their 0-0 draw against the Germans. They also showed they love attacking football and freedom in their 8-0 win over Fiji, but that game doesn’t say a lot about their talent. We are very curious to see them play in the latter stages of the tournament.
Their opponents, Honduras, finished second in a group with Portugal, Argentina, and Algeria. Their only loss came at the hands of the Portuguese, but the fact that they lost 2-3 was the deciding factor in the group. After a 1-1 draw with Argentina, the Hondurans were level on points but progressed due to better goal difference.
They will start their quarter-final as outsiders who have largely exceed all expectations, and thus will be playing with less motivation, but also less pressure.
These kinds of knockout round games are always hard to predict because both team heavily relied on counter-attacks in their group games. Now they both have to attack, and we feel that the South Koreans will have more of the ball and will create more chances.
A good idea would be to bet on an Asian victory, and if you’re feeling brave, we think an under 2,5 bet is also smart. Combine these, and you have great odds to make some money.
