Preview before this match –
Head to Head –
Korea Republic played 11 matches against Uzbekistan and they have won 8 of those matches while only loosing 1 match. 2 matches failed to produce any result for either team.
The last meeting between these two teams ended in 1-0 victory for Korea Republic.
Uzbekistan had a mix start in their AFC Cup mission. They started with a win over Korea DPR but ended up losing the very next match to China PR. Then they came back to winning again after defeating Saudi Arabia quite comfortably. However, this time they are facing an opponent who has great record against them. So they will have to play quite better if they want any positive result from this match. From my eyes, they are the underdogs in this match.
Korea’s last loss came against Iran 4 matches ago. So if we take their last 5 matches for their recent performance then we see that they are in 4 match winning streak which also means that they have won all 3 of their AFC Asian Cup so far. In their last match they defeated the host Australia and demonstrated that they are one of the top contenders for this trophy. They will be the favorites in this match.
