Saudi Arabia vs South Korea LIVE!


A mouthwatering last-16 tie in the Asian Cup takes place today as Saudi Arabia meet South Korea. Both of these teams hold ambitions of going all the way in Qatar but one must fall at the first knockout hurdle while the victor will head into a tough quarter-final match-up against Australia.


It has been a difficult tournament for Korea, who were denied first place in their group by the latest of equalisers by Malaysia last time out. Tottenham star Heung-min Son appealed for calm after that setback and they face a Saudi side which are unbeaten at this Asian Cup - but drew with Thailand to finish their group stage.


As South Korea discovered all-too well in the groups - and as yesterday's incredible finish between Jordan and Iraq showed - this competition has the ability to bring about the most incredible drama. Follow all the action from Saudi Arabia vs South Korea LIVE via Standard Sport's match blog!

Score prediction

Mancini talks up South Korea threat

A lot has been made of South Korea's struggles, particularly at the back, but Saudi Arabia boss Roberto Mancini is expecting a tough test for his side.

"It's my opinion that South Korea is a very good team," he said.

"Even if they conceded six goals in the group stage, it doesn't change their strength.

"They have very good players and they score a lot of goals."

How South Korea reached knockout stages

It's been much less convincing from South Korea, who finished second in Group E.

They beat Bahrain in their opening match, but were then held to entertaining draws by Jordan and Malaysia.

South Korea have already shipped six goals in the tournament.
