South Korea vs Malaysia Tips


South Korea were heled to a 2-2 draw by Jordan in their last match as they made it two without defeat at the Asian Cup.

Malaysia were beaten 1-0 by Bahrain last time out with this ensuring they remained rooted to the foot of the group. 

  • South Korea have won once and drawn once at the Asian Cup
  • South Korea have scored at least two goals in both of their Asian Cup matches
  • Malaysia have lost twice so far 
  • Malaysia have conceded five goals across two games
  • Malaysia are yet to score at the Asian Cup 

Head To Head


South Kore have won their last three games in a row against Malaysia to nil. In their last seven meetings, South Korea have won four times while there have been three draws. 

South Korea Form 


South Korea began the Asian Cup in fine style as they dispatched Bahrain in a 3-1 win to put one foot in the knockout stages of the competition. 

Their 2-2 draw with Jordan saw the opportunity to move three points clear at the top of the group pass them by, but it means they have their destiny in their own hands as they look to ensure they finish in the top-two at least. 

With five goals scored across two games and three wins to nil over Malaysia in their last three meetings, South Korea can be backed at $1.67 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet in this one. 

Malaysia Form 


Malaysia have not been good enough at the Asian Cup, and they need a big result in this one if they are to have any chance of snaring a best third-placed ranking. 

Their 4-0 loss to Jordan put their hopes of a knockout spot into perspective, while their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Bahrain saw them lose to the only side in the group that they had a realistic chance of beating. 

While they will be desperate to secure a win in their final group game, it is tough to see them beating a South Korea side that have not lost any of their last 10 games. 

Verdict

I am backing South Korea to win this one to nil, with this the result in their last four matches against Malaysia. In search of longer odds, I am also backing South Korea to win with a -2.75 handicap as they put a Bahrain side with a weak attack and defence to the sword.
