Full Time Result – Draw
South Korea have not lost a match yet in this cycle but they have also not been as dominant as we would expect. They had two draws in the first 5 matches and one of them was against Iraq at home. Tuesday's hosts, on the other hand, have not won a match yet and have 4 draws out of their 5 matches to date. This does not mean that they are equal to South Korea but the visitors are not a team that scores too many goals and we expect Iraq's defense to hold tight.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Neither team is one to score many goals per match or even goals every match. Iraq have had 3/5 matches when they did not even score a goal. South Korea have been more active and scored at least one in 4/5 games but at the same time, 4/5 of their matches ended with 1 or 2 goals max. Their defense is strong and Iraq will have a hard time breaking it, so we do not expect the hosts to even score one.
Half Time Result – Draw
Just like we expect the match to end with points divided, we expect to see a draw at half time. South Korea had 4 matches to date where there wasn't a single goal before half time. All their goals apart from the last match were scored after the break. Iraq have similar stats – 3/5 matches ended at 0:0 at half time. We also need to mention their head-to-head from the earlier rounds which also ended at 0:0 FT. This match should be goalless and if there is any action, we expect it to happen after the first 45 minutes.
