SOUTH KOREA VS SYRIA PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
There is no denying the fact that the South Korean style of play in the final qualifying round is full of stalemates. This team is ranked 36th in the world for Iraq to hold a 0-0 draw. And they have to struggle to win 1-0 against the weakest team in the group, Lebanon. Obviously, the attack of this team is not meeting expectations, if not disappointing. It is most clearly shown in the statistics of the last 3 matches with only 1 goal/match. After the first 2 matches, even this number dropped to 0.5 goals/match.
In general, South Korea is still maintaining a stable pace of competition with 9 wins and 11 consecutive defeats, including keeping a clean sheet in 10 consecutive matches. However, this will not be an easy match for coach Paulo Bento’s team.
Syria has risen to 4th place after a 1-1 draw with the UAE, so the opportunity to compete for the play-off spot is still very bright. Coach Bernd Stange’s students are currently showing strong steps, 8 matches in the second round of Syria had 7 wins and only 1 defeat against China when they were sure. They received 22 goals and received 7 goals.
The strong point is the ability to defend firmly with a relatively annoying attack. Syria caused many difficulties for Iran on the first day of the army and only received a minimum 0-1 defeat before drawing the UAE with a score of 1-1 in the last match. With what has been shown, coach Stange’s team will not be easily subdued even though they are being greatly underestimated.
Select: Under 2.5 FT.
The level of competition as well as the tradition of South Korea is currently not in dispute. Syria’s recent advances are also truly impressive. Bernd Stange brings the right ball philosophy and improves the fighting spirit, making Syria an extremely uncomfortable opponent. In the last 5 meetings, Syria has 3 times forced the opponent to share points and only received 2 0-1 defeats. This will be the solid baggage of “Eagle Qasioun” in the upcoming march.
South Korea’s performance in the recent period has been very unstable. That is also the reason why they receive a lot of criticism. From the stalemate draw against Iraq to 2 hard-fought victories over Lebanon, their attack continuously disappoints. On the contrary, Syria is playing stably from the 2nd qualifying round, 7 wins after 10 matches and holding the UAE with a score of 1-1 are not due to luck. Particularly impressive are the statistics of only 8 goals conceded in this series of matches.
Select: Syria FT.
The European odds are highly appreciating that South Korea won. This option is still a safe investment because the class and quality of their squad are really different. Syria is expected to cause many difficulties for South Korea in the upcoming match. However, their point-and-point quest would be difficult to complete.
Select: South Korea FT.
