Prediction for Sri Lanka - South Korea. The match will take place on June 9, 2021. We will analyze the performance of the teams at the second stage of the selection for the World Cup and select the optimal coefficient for this confrontation.
South Korea is the favorite of its group, but the rivals are on their heels. However, this does not apply to Sri Lanka, which prematurely became the last, except for the DPRK, which withdrew from the tournament.
The only head to head meeting of the teams took place in 2019 as part of the current qualifying cycle. Then South Korea defeated the opponent with a score of 8: 0. The hosts scored five goals in the first half. A terrible game was played by the Sri Lankan goalkeeper, who was able to hit just one ball flying into the target of his goal.
Sri Lanka is the clear underdog of Group H in the current qualifying tournament. She has conceded 18 goals in five matches, and scored only two. Interestingly, the team shipped both shells to the gates of Lebanon a few days ago, and on the road. However, this did not save her from losing with the score 2:3. It is noteworthy that Sri Lanka could not score in eight matches in a row.
South Korea has lost points twice in this qualifying round. At the same time, the 0-0 draw with the DPRK was annulled. The team achieved the same result in the match against Lebanon, with which they eventually scored the same number of points in the group. At the same time, South Korea has the best goal difference. Suffice it to say that she was able to keep the goal intact in all the matches.
