Lebanon vs South Korea Prediction 28 January 2022

Lebanon hosts South Korea in round 7 of the third stage of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Friday, January 28th at Saida Municipal Stadium (Sidon)
Lebanon will defend for 90 minutes in the upcoming game. It is important to indicate that the hosts are still contenders for promotion to the World Cup. They compete with the UAE national team, lagging only one point behind it. For two, the teams earned 11 points in 12 matches, and this fact hints that every point is important in this qualification. Now Lebanon will take the field with the only task — to prevent the South Koreans from scoring. The Cedars themselves will not claim a goal, as they did not score in four of the last six qualifying matches. And in five head-to-head matches against South Korea, they scored only one goal in total. Then the only question is: how many goals will the visitors score?

Son Heung-min is injured, and Hwang Hee-chan from Wolverhampton cannot help too. Thus, South Korea was left without a couple of its most valuable players. Who will score? Yes, there are some representatives of the top leagues, but they did not show results last autumn. Yes, the Koreans scored eight goals in six matches, but only one of them was scored without the participation of the two mentioned players! In other words, the team’s dependence on these legionnaires from the Premier League is extremely high, and their absence cannot be fully compensated. But even with them, the South Koreans played with Under 2.5 goals scored in four out of six qualifying matches. In the first game against Lebanon, the Tigers of Asia won only 1-0 at home, and the only goal was scored after an hour of football. The last away match versus this opponent in 2019 ended in a draw for the Koreans, and then both Son and Hwang were on the pitch. Will we see at least one goal in the upcoming game?
There is no urgent need for the Koreans to win now, and there is even less need to hammer the opponent. Everyone already understands that the team will go to the World Cup, The Tigers of Asia have an 8-point advantage over their closest pursuers four rounds before the end of the campaign. The Koreans would be fully satisfied with a pair of 1-0 victories in this slot of qualifying matches. They will not force events in Lebanon. Rolling a ball for 90 minutes? Perhaps. What about Lebanon? It suits the Cedars. It is a rare case when both parties agree on Under 2.5 goals scored. Because of the fresh losses of the Koreans, I see no reason to bet on anything else in their match.

Prediction for the match:

Under 2.5 goals scored
