Sri Lanka come into the game with an 8-game losing streak and will be looking to get their first victory in Group H. Their last encounter against Lebanon was a thriller and it ended in a 3-2 loss for the Sri Lankans. Ahmed Waseem Razeek scored 2 goals for the Lankans but that was not enough as they fell short to achieve their first win in the World Cup qualifiers. Sri Lanka sit at the bottom of the table and have got 0 points in 5 games played so far, they have only managed to score 2 goals and have conceded 18 in the competition so far. If the Lankans would want to have any chance at beating the South Koreans, they will have to score goals and defend better as the Koreans have the explosive Heung Ming Son who is a big goalscoring threat.
South Korea hold the 1st position in the Group but are level on points with Lebanon who also have also managed to get 10 points. Any lapses in the following games could be costly for the Koreans considering their position in the table. Heung Ming Son will captain the Koreans and he will be hoping to carry on his brilliance to this game after having a wonderful season at Tottenham. South Korea has not had a great run lately and will be hoping to get back the consistency.
Sri Lanka have no significant injury problems and will be taking on the South Korean team at full strength. The Tageuk warriors will be taking on the field without their midfielder Na-Sang-ho who is ruled out with an injury.
Heung Ming Son has been playing phenomenally well all season and he will be the key player for South Korea in this game. We predict a 4-0 win for the Tageuk warriors in this match against the Lankans
