In the qualifying tournament for the Asian Basketball Cup, there will be a match between the national teams of Australia and South Korea. The game will take place on Thursday, February 22. The match is scheduled to start at 08:30 Central European Time.

Australia

Not long ago, the Australian national team became the bronze medalist at the Olympic Games. However, after their success in 2020, the Australians performed poorly at the last World Championship, failing to advance from the group stage. It's worth noting that it was precisely the Australian team that won the last two Asian Cups in 2017 and 2022. Before the start of the qualifying tournament for the upcoming continental championship, Australia is also highly regarded by bookmakers and should confidently pass the qualification barrier.

South Korea

The South Korean team finished seventh at last year's Asian Games and often lands in the top three at the Asian Cups. The team has participated in continental forums 25 times and has returned home with medals 22 times. In the current qualifying group, South Korea's opponents include the national teams of Australia, Indonesia, and Thailand. There are all reasons to believe that the level of the Korean national basketball players should be enough to advance to the final stage of the tournament. To do this, they need to finish in one of the top two positions.

Interesting Facts and Head-to-Head History

  • Australia has suffered only two defeats in their last eight games.
  • South Korea has two victories in their last five matches.
  • The teams have only met twice before, and both times the Australian basketball players celebrated victory.

Australia - South Korea Prediction

The Australian team is much stronger than their opponents, so bookmakers consider them the clear favorites of this match. I will bet on the hosts to win with a handicap of -9.
