Korea Republic will want to finish their Group F assignments with a win as they face Germany in the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Wednesday.

The Koreans have lost twice in the group, to Sweden and Mexico, but will now chase a win to upset the defending champions.

Sitting at the bottom of the table with zero points sees the Asians heading back home after the match as they have failed to qualify for the knockout stages.

Although the Germans are gaining momentum, the Koreans will hope to emulate Mexico who collected a win over Joachim Low’s men.

On the part of Die Mannschaft, Germany have managed to bounce back to winning ways after their 1-0 loss to Mexico in their opener.

The reigning champions were on the verge of suffering two defeats after Sweden took an early lead last weekend, but they were resilient to claim a 2-1 win.

Germany now sit second on the log table with three points (level with Sweden) and will fight harder for a win to ensure they join the Mexicans in the knockout stages.

The two sides have met on three occasions in the past and the Germans have three wins whilst Korea has one, the other ended in a draw.

Kazan' Arena will be the venue on Wednesday at 16:00 (CAT).
