Match: South Korea vs Senegal
Competition: International Friendly
Time / Date: 16:00h / 11 June 2018
Venue: Untersberg-Arena (Grodig)
Senegal are without a win for 4 consecutive games and certainly not the form they want for the World Cup in Russia, here in this match against South Korea they will try to raise a little self-confidence.
After three consecutive draws and only one goal scored, three days ago Lions of Teranga also recorded a loss from Croatia with 2:1. The main problem for Aliou Cisse to improve in the team is the attack, Sadio Mane who scored 20 goals for Liverpool last season hasn’t scored a single goal for Senegal in last 5 games.
Senegal’s opponent in this match, South Korea has been without a win in the last two games, winning only once since March on his own (1W, 1D, 3L). This victory came against Honduras with 2:0 and is the only positive result for them.
They have met each other twice since 2006, South Korea win once and they have recorded one draw.
Senegal has been drawing at half-time in four of their last five matches and like I said their main problem is scoring goals, seven of last eight games Mane and co. have seen under 2.5 match goals. Hosts have seen same stats for goals in 3 of last 4 home games, boring game with few goals can we expect here.
