Korea Rep VS Sri Lanka

South Korea and Sri Lanka face at Hwaseong Auxiliary Stadium, in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Asia (2nd Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of South Korea

The home team comes to this 3rd round of Group H after a win in their debut in this group stage, against Turkmenistan, by (0‑2). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. Their last home match was for the Friendlies and ended in a draw by (2‑2) against Georgia. In the last 10 home matches South Korea has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

South Korea heads into this match with a 0-2 win against Turkmenistan, starting this round of 2022 World Cup finals in the best way possible: the team's goals were signed by Woo-young Jung and Sang-ho Na. In this match against Sri Lanka, the Portuguese coach Paulo Bento should privilege the maintenance of the ball possession and the organized attacks, especially, through the right. At the individual level we highlight striker Hee-Chan Hawang, a very strong athlete at the time of finishing, and Heung-min Son, a very fast player in the offensive transition. The main players were summoned for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: Jo Hyeon-Woo, Kim Moon-Hwan, Hong Chul, Kwon Kyung-Won, Kim Min-Jae, Nam Tae-Hee, Paik Seung-Ho, Lee Kang-In, Kim Shin-Wook, Hwang Hee-Chan, Son Heung-Min.

Analysis of Sri Lanka

The away team comes to his 3rd round of Group H in the 5th position, no points won yet, after 2 losses. In their debut in this group stage they lost at home against Turkmenistan by (0‑2). In the second round, they lost at home against North Korea by (0‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 1 win, 3 draws and 11 losses in away matches, with 9 goals scored and 30 conceded; against 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 15 goals scored and 20 conceded. Their last away match was for the Friendlies and ended in a loss by (5‑1) against UAE. In the last 7 away matches Sri Lanka has won 1, tied 2 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition.

The Sri Lankan team kicks off for this match after a heavy (6-0) loss to Malaysia in preparation for the forthcoming official games. We remind that this country has played 2 games in this qualifying round, but it was not very successful as it lost against North Korea and Turkmenistan. Playing away from home, the coach Pakir Ali should favor defensive organization and counterattacking through the corridors. The attacking men, Kurukulasuriyage and Shabeer Razooniya, are very dangerous in air play and finishing. There are no major absentees for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: W. Perera, P. Manaram , D. Puslas, C. Chameera, H. Fernando, J. Supan, M. Aman, D. De Silva, L. Ishan, D. Kurukulasuriyage, M. Fasal.

Betting suggestion:

Normally South Korea makes big shows in home games and in this game the tendency is to continue. It should be noted that the South Korean team has a more evolved squad, ie they are expected to dominate the entire game and have the best chances to score. On the other hand, Sri Lanka does not have any weapons to debate in this game, but it is very dangerous in counterattack. Therefore, given the goals of the teams, betting in favor of the '' Over 1.5 Goals in 1st Half '' is a good option.
