South Korea recorded a confidence-boosting win against Colombia in their last friendly international.
The Asian side broke the deadlock early in the 17th minute itself and held the scoreline till the first half. Four minutes into the latter 45, Colombia hit back and equalized the scores. But the joy was short-lived as once again the Korean side took the lead. This time though, they held it till the final whistle.
Australia had a tough outing the last time they lined up for a game. They were defeated by minnows UAE in the Asian Cup Quarter Finals. The extremely competitive tie saw UAE scoring the lone goal and the winner in the 68th minute.
South Korea vs Australia Head-to-head (h2h)

South Korea vs Australia Prediction
South Korea has the obvious home advantage, and they were unbeaten in 14 of their last 15 games. They also won six of their last seven match-ups. At home, they were unbeaten in 26 of their last 30 ties and won five of their last six as well.
H2h ties give the advantage to Korea. They recorded three of the last four wins, and only once have they lost with the home status. As things stand, expect the Asian side to post the victory.
But Australia is no pushover. They have scored two or more goals in four of their last seven ties, and with the road status, they have found the back of the net in 16 of their last 19 fixtures. Finally, Korea has conceded goals in three of their last four games.
It’s logical to expect goals by both teams this Thursday.
