Team To Score in Half – South Korea 2nd Half
South Korea is one of the strongest teams in Asia although they often fail to secure their wins and end up in draws. The team has one main problem – they fail too many attempts in literally every match. If you haven't watched any of their games, check out the statistics – extreme possession percentages, incredible numbers of goal attempts but almost no goals. When the team scores, it is typically in the second half and we expect them to find the net after the break.
Result / Total Goals – South Korea & Under 2.5 Goals
UAE are an above-average national team but they are a boring side to watch. Their football is mostly defensive and they rarely have success on the offense. South Korea have always been the better team right now, in particular, we believe that the difference in strength is even bigger than anticipated. We expect this to be a one-sided affair but with less than 3 goals. We simply think that South Korea will face the same problems – a lot of shots but few goals. Plus, UAE know how to defend and this could easily be a 1:0 win for Korea.
Clean Sheet – South Korea (Yes)
UAE were dominating their weak group in the second stage of the ASIA: World Cup – Qualification but this is no longer the same stage. South Korea is a much stronger opponent that does not concede a lot of goals and we do not expect UAE to score. We have seen their defensive style and South Korea shouldn't face any difficulties in keeping a clean sheet.
