South Korea looking for a much-improved performance

A draw and a win in two games have put South Korea in second place in group A. Candidates to qualify from this group next to Iran need to improve their game, however. Just one goal scored in two games at home is not very comforting. Especially with the likes of Son of Tottenham in the Korean squad.

The ten-time World Cup participants had their best result when they co-hosted the tournament in 2002. In fact, the Tigers finished fourth and are the only Asian nation to finish in a similar position. In addition, South Korea won the AFC Asian cup twice but haven’t won since 1960. 

South Korea Key Stats

  • South Korea are undefeated in their last five matches
  • The Tigers conceded in just one of their last five games
  • BTTS happened in three of South Korea’s last ten matches

Defense is key as Syria aim for a point

81st in the world, Syria is one of the moderate teams in Asian football. Notably, the Syrian national team has never qualified for the World Cup. Also, their best achievement in the international level is winning the West Asia trophy once. In addition, in six AFC Asian cup appearances, Syria couldn’t get past the group stages. 

In the current World Cup qualifications, Syria lost their first match to Iran 1-0 after completely being dominated by the Iranians. Then, in the second game, coach Nizar Mahrous saw his team draw and gain a precious point from a strong UAE team. To Conclude, Syria need to perform a very strong defensive game to come back with at least a point from Seoul.

Syria Key Stats

  • Syria scored in seven of their last ten matches
  • The average number of goals conceded by Syria in the last ten games is one
  • BTTS happened in three of their last ten matches

South Korea vs Syria Prediction

Obviously, South Korea are clear favorites to win this match with odds as low as 1.30 for a home win. On the other side, Syria have odds of 11.00 for a win.

Tactically speaking, the South Koreans are having trouble playing against congested defenses. To Illustrate, they scored one goal against this kind of defense despite dominating with possession.

Consequently, we think Syria will adopt a similar style of play. However, in the past two matches, the Syrians had just three shots on goal making their attack one of the weakest. Hence we think we won’t see btts happening in this match. And to add some value we will add an outcome combo.
