KOR vs BAH Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
One of the favorites for the tournament, South Korea will be looking for a place in the quarterfinals when they play Bahrain in the round-of-16 match in the AFC Asian Cup at Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Stadium, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Tuesday evening (IST).
It’s fair to say that South Korea didn’t have to break a sweat in the group stage. They won all their group games without conceding a goal, beating the Philippines and Kyrgyzstan 1-0, while they scored twice against China and topped the group.
Son Heung-min returned to the squad and his class was easy to see in the last match. The Tottenham man played the whole game against China and in the 90 minutes he produced more chances than any other South Korean player in the whole tournament.
Bahrain meanwhile finished third in Group A but still qualified to the knockout stage as they were one of the four best third-placed teams in the group stage.
