Uzbekistan vs Korea Republic
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 10:00 UK / 11:00 CET
Venue: Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre (Brisbane).
Taegeuk Warriors will be looking to continue the fine streak of results on Tuesday when they are to play Asian rivals Uzbekistan in a friendly on the neutral venue of Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre. The Koreans showed quite a decent display on Saturday when they were just moments away from beating Australia away in Brisbane.
Palo Bento’s men allowed a late equalizer at the death of the game at Suncorp Stadium as it was QPR’s midfielder Massimo Luongo who brought Socceroos on level terms at the 94th minute. The Portuguese manager was without his main star Son Heung-min which adds on the value of such a performance. Can Taegeuk Warriors back it up with a win over Uzbekistan?
Uzbekistan vs Korea Republic: Head-to-head
The head to head record completely favours the Koreans who were the dominant force over the course of history.
Taegeuk Warriors won 8 and drew 4 of 12 meetings with Uzbekistan.
Only one of last five head to head affairs offered three or more goals.
Korea Republic won three and drew two of last five encounters with the White Wolves.
Uzbekistan vs Korea Republic: Prediction
Uzbeks will also come into this in high spirits. They kept their net untouched in last three games. However, it’s the attacking line which might worry the famous Argentine manager Hector Raul Cuper as Uzbekistan failed to break the deadlock in a goalless draw with Lebanon on Thursday.
Knowing that none of past five games Uzbeks played actually saw three or more goals scored, we do find the Under 2.5 goals FT as by far the best of betting options you can take her at the odds of 1.60.
Koreans won and drew three games apiece out of last six. They played the likes of Germany, Chile, Uruguay and Australia in the process. We thus have to see them as favourites to grab the win and finish the year in style.
