Saudi Arabia arrive for their latest Asian Cup outing on the back of a fighting 0-0 draw with Thailand that extended their unbeaten run in the tournament to three games.

South Korea played out a very entertaining 3-3 draw with Malaysia to make it three without defeat in the Asian Cup. 

  • Saudi Arabia have scored in two of their three Asian Cup games
  • Saudi Arabia have lost to South Korea in three of their last five 
  • South Korea have won seven of their last nine in all competitions (D2)
  • South Korea have seen BTTS in their last three in a row 

Head To Head


South Korea have won three of their last 10 meetings with Saudi Arabia, with the latter winning three times and the other four games ending in draws. 

Saudi Arabia Form 


Saudi Arabia have been strong in the Asian Cup, avoiding defeat in their opening three with two wins and one draw. 

Only one of their games has seen the side fail to score, with Saudi Arabia netting twice in each of their other two matches. 

The worry for Saudi Arabia is that they have failed to beat South Korea in any of their last six matches. While they have secured three draws, they have also lost three times, meaning recent history is currently against them in this matchup. 

South Korea Form 


South Korea may have drawn their last two matches, but they have looked good going forward, scoring eight goals across their three outings. 

The major worry for South Korea is their defence. They are yet to keep a clean sheet, while they have conceded five goals in their last two outings. Against a Saudi Arabia side that are strong at the back, giving away soft goals could spell the end of their Asian Cup campaign. 

With three wins in their last five against Saudi Arabia, South Korea have been installed as the favourites at $1.87 with Betfair

Verdict

I am backing South Korea to win this one but I predict that they will fail to keep a clean sheet once again in an entertaining match.
