51.8% chance of advancing to the quarterfinals in Korea Statistics media predicts Saudi Arabia game

Opta‘ predicts a new victory for Korea, not Saudi Arabia. The previous record is 5 wins, 8 draws, and 5 losses. In the most recent match, Korea won 1-0.

The Korean soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), had a 51.8% chance of advancing to the quarterfinals.

Klinsmann will play the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against Saudi Arabia at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar, at 1 a.m. on the 31st (Korean time).

Korea, which recorded 1 win and 2 draws (5 points) in Group E, passed the group stage in second place with performance and results that were somewhat below expectations.

Putting the disappointment behind us, we aim to turn things around in the round of 16. The opponent is Saudi Arabia, the ‘powerhouse of the Middle East’.

Saudi Arabia, led by world-famous coach Roberto Mancini (Italy), has a strong defense and fast offensive line. Since it is adjacent to Qatar, it is expected to create a home atmosphere, so it is expected to be a difficult game for Korea.

Statistics media ‘Opta’ also predicted a difficult game. Using our own supercomputer, we calculated that Korea’s victory over Saudi Arabia was 51.8%. Korea’s victory was expected to be slightly higher than that of Saudi Arabia.

‘Opta’ explained, “Korea’s Son Heung-min (Tottenham) wants to end the long wait for the Korean national team, which has not reached the top since winning the championship in 1960.”

Saudi Arabia, where Korea will play in the round of 16, is ranked 56th in the FIFA rankings, the fifth highest among participating countries in this tournament. Korea ranked 23rd.

Korea and Saudi Arabia’s historical record against each other is tight at 5 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses in 18

matches. In the most recent match, in September last year, Korea won 1-0 thanks to Cho Gyu-sung (Midtjylland)’s opening goal in the 32nd minute of the first half. 고스톱
