South Korea to protect their undefeated run

South Korea are the most successful team in Asia concerning the World Cups. Notably, the Warriors’ fourth-place finish in 2002 when they hosted jointly with Japan was the best-ever Asian finish. Also, remarkably South Korea has appeared in all of the last ten World Cup editions. Moreover, the Warriors are undefeated in seven WC qualifiers games.

During the last round, South Korea faced their toughest fixture yet in Group A. By all means, Paulo Bento’s team succeeded in their test after drawing away to leaders Iran. Still, the Koreans are two points behind the leaders and four points clear of third-placed Lebanon. Hence, it is crucial to get all three points here. However, Bento’s team is suffering offensively scoring on average one goal per game in the last four. 

The United Arab Emirates is in need of points to stay in contention

The United Arab Emirates are still searching for their first win in this final stage of the WC qualifiers. With three points from four games, the White ones need to come back from Goyang with points. Surely, after qualifying once for the WC in Italy 90, the UAE have emerged as one of the better teams in Asia. However, Bert Van Marvijk’s team lost some of its momentum in recent years.

To examine UAE’s recent games, they scored on average under one goal per game (3), while conceding a goal a game. Also, the Whites played one of their games on the road so far, drawing it with Syria 1-1. On the negative side, UAE never won in South Korea losing in four of their five visits by three-goal margins. 

South Korea vs UAE Key Points

  • Both teams did not score in South Korea’s and UAE’s two of the last four games
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in South Korea three of the last four matches
  • UAE’s three of the last four matches saw under 2.5 goals

South Korea vs United Arab Emirates Prediction

The UAE have beaten South Korea once in 14 meetings. And that was in a friendly at home in 2008. Hence, the bookies favoring South Korea to win with odds of 1.45 at Vbet are justified. Also, there is a 60% chance for a home win according to market stats. 

Regardless of the fact that UAE scored in their last two visits to South Korea, the bookies are expecting both teams not to score. And the chance for that is 50% and the odds 1.44 at Vbet. This is backed by the low-scoring average by both teams in their four games so far. 

All things considered, we will back a double chance outcome combined with both teams not to score from Vbet. And for our second prediction, we will go with a double chance and total goals scored.
