The memory of the Korea-Japan match is only about the final of the 2018 Asian Games.

However, there is a possibility of facing Japan early in this Asian Cup.

If Korea, which has virtually confirmed its advance to the round of 16 with one win and one draw, beats Malaysia, the last opponent, and moves to the top of the group, the next match will be complicated.

The match between Korea and Japan, which was expected in the final, will be advanced to the round of 16.

Japanese media predicted, “There is a 50% or more chance that the Korea-Japan war will happen early.”

Even if such a match is made and wins the Korea-Japan match, there is a high possibility that Korea will face Iran in the quarterfinals and Qatar in the semifinals.

However, if Korea advances to the round of 16 as the second-ranked team in the group, Saudi Arabia is likely to be the next opponent.

If you meet Saudi in the round of 16, you are likely to meet Australia in the quarterfinals and Iraq or the United Arab Emirates in the semifinals.

Each team started calculating who would be advantageous for the expected round of 16 match.

The scenario is only a scenario, and it is more urgent for Korea to shake off the unstable performance revealed in the Jordan match.

National team coach Klinsmann said he would beat Malaysia and reach the round of 16 as the top of the group.
