A statistical media analysis showed that Klinsmann, who advanced to the quarterfinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup after defeating Saudi Arabia, has less than a 50% chance of advancing to the semifinals.
Opta, a media outlet specializing in soccer statistics and records,
analyzed on the 31st (Korean time) that the national soccer team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann had a 47.6% chance of defeating Australia in the quarterfinals of the 2023 AFC Qatar Asian Cup. 온라인카지노사이트
The game against Australia was the first time in this tournament that the Korean national soccer team’s expected win rate in a game fell below 50%.
Opta previously predicted Korea’s winning percentage at 52.7% ahead of the round of 16 match against Saudi Arabia led by coach Roberto Mancini.
It was expected that among the eight matches in the round of 16, the game would be the closest to Baekjungseok.
In fact, Korea, where Cho Kyu-sung (Midtjylland) scored a dramatic equalizer just before the end of the second half to make it 1-1,
beat Saudi Arabia 4-2 in a penalty shootout and secured a ticket to the quarterfinals.
Australia, which advanced to the round of 16 by winning 2 wins and 1 draw in Group B of the group stage,
showed off its firepower by defeating Indonesia, led by coach Shin Tae-yong, 4-0.
Australia played the Indonesian game on the 28th, so they secured a long break until the Korean game,
which takes place at 0:30 a.m. on the 3rd.
On the other hand, the Klinsmann, who had an extended battle with Saudi Arabia on the morning of the 31st,
was in a relatively difficult situation in terms of physical strength as he received more than two days of rest less than Australia.
Klinsmann’s probability of winning was 17.3%, ranking 4th overall.
The team closest to winning the title at this point was Australia (20.7%), followed by Qatar (18.1%) and Japan (17.7%).
Jordan, who drew 2-2 with Korea in the second game of the group stage,
was predicted to have a 56.2% chance of defeating Tajikistan, which advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time.
If Klinsmann defeats Australia, he will play in the semifinals against the winner between Jordan and Tajikistan.
Opta believed that Qatar, the defending champion and host country,
had a significant advantage over Uzbekistan, its opponent in the quarterfinals.
Qatar’s winning rate was 61.2%, and Uzbekistan’s was 38.8%.
