Australia vs South Korea Tips


Australia continued their fine run at the Asian Cup in the Round of 16 as they dumped Indonesia out in an impressive 4-0 win. 
  • Australia vs South Korea Tips
  • Head To Head
  • Australia Form 
  • South Korea Form 

South Korea secured a win over Saudi Arabia on penalties as they trundled to a third draw inside 90 minutes in a row. 

  • Australia have won three of their four Asian Cup games (D1)
  • The Socceroos have scored at least on goal in each of their last eight 
  • South Korea have only won once at the Asian Cup (D3 inside 90 minutes)
  • South Korea have seen BTTS in all four of their matches at the competition 
  • South Korea's last loss to Australia came in the Asian Cup in 2015 

Head To Head


South Korea edged past Australia in a 1-0 win when the two last met back in 2019. In their last 10, South Korea have won four times, the Socceroos have won twice, with the other four games ending in draws. 

Australia Form 


Australia have been excellent at the Asian Cup, with four big performances seeing them take their place in the quarter-finals of the competition. 

Wins over India and Syria in the group stage came alongside a draw with Uzbekistan. The Socceroos saved their best performance for their first knockout game as they hammered Indonesia in a convincing 4-0 win.

Australia arrive for this one as the underdogs, but they know that South Korea have not been winning games regularly, drawing three of their four in 90 minutes. While I do not believe that the Aussies will have a particularly easy time of it, their recent performances should carry them into the semi-finals. 

South Korea Form 


Despite avoiding defeat across the Asian Cup so far, South Korea have only won once inside 90 minutes, with this coming in their first outing against Bahrain back in mid-January. 

Since then, South Korea have drawn with Jordan (2-2) and Malaysia (3-3), while they battled to a 1-1 draw after extra-time against Saudi Arabia before winning on penalties. 

While South Kora are unbeaten in their last two against Australia, their last defeat to the Aussies came in a 2-1 extra-time defeat in the Asian Cup back in 2015. 

Verdict

I am backing the Socceroos to come out on top in this one as both sides find the back of the net.
