Korea Republic to Win
The World Cup qualifiers did not begin as planned with South Korea drawing with Iraq in their opening round fixture. They have an easier target in Lebanon, a team they have beaten on three of the last four occasions they have met. Both sides are on unbeaten runs, and we expect it to end for the visitors.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Barring their goalless draw with Iraq, the representatives from the Korea Republic have been involved in high scoring fixtures. The previous five fixtures finished with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline, a fate anticipated for this midweek fixture. When these two sides met earlier in the year, three goals were posted on the scoreboard and that should be the case in this meeting.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Lebanon has not had trouble finding the back of the net but ensuring their posted total is greater than their rivals. It was the case when they met this past June as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. Both sides scored in that meeting and we expect a similar fate to their meeting in Suwon World Cup Stadium.
Korea Republic vs Lebanon: Team News and Match Preview
Paulo Bento will want more from his charges after they drew blanks against Iraq. It brought an end to a prolific run of form that had seen them score 12 goals in their last three outings. Nevertheless, the Portuguese manager will fancy his side's chances after defeating the Cedars in a competitive environment this June. With a second successive fixture at the Suwon World Cup Stadium, they will have home advantage on their side and should make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself.
Goalscoring is an issue for Lebanon, as they could only manage low scoring wins over minnows Al Fujairah and Djibouti. It was on full show as they could not trouble the scorers against the United Arab Emirates. Now on the move again, odds are against them as they take on South Kore. While not confident of a win, they will be better prepared for their rivals, against whom they broke their goalscoring duck in a 2-1 defeat in June. The Cedars showed improvement as they had gone goalless in the prior three meetings against South Korea.
