The road to the 2023 Asian Cup semifinals has been tough for South Korea, leading many to wonder if Heung-Min Son and his teammates will struggle again. The upcoming game against Jordan poses an interesting challenge, as the teams previously played to a 2-2 draw in the group stage.
Looking at the odds, South Korea is the favorite with a -200 moneyline, while Jordan sits at +600 and a draw at +300. As for the goals total, the odds are yet to be determined. The game is set to take place at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at 10:00 AM ET and will be available to watch on Paramount+.
For Jordan, reaching the semifinals is a historic achievement but their odds of going further seem slim due to the lack of player depth. Most of their players come from the domestic league, with only a few playing abroad. Their previous matchup with South Korea ended in a draw after Jordan held a 2-1 lead until stoppage time, where an own goal changed the outcome.
On the other hand, South Korea’s journey to the semis has been entertaining for viewers but nerve-wracking for fans. They’ve managed to secure wins in their last two games after regular time, showcasing their ability to come out on top despite initial struggles. Led by Heung-Min Son, the team’s roster is strong, and they have the potential to overcome any team in Asia.
In terms of predictions, South Korea is favored to win, but it’s expected they will face some difficulty, possibly allowing a goal or two. The prediction is for South Korea to win and for the game to have over 2.5 goals. Overall, the game is expected to be an intense and closely contested battle, with both teams fighting for a spot in the Asian Cup final.
