Kyrgyzstan have a lot at stake as they lock horns with South Korea in their second match of the AFC Asian Cup at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday night.

They are coming into this match after a 2-1 loss to China in their previous encounter. Even though they dominated possession and play for the major part of the match, their failure to convert their chances in the final third cost them the match. A loss in this match could bring an end to their Asian Cup campaign.

South Korea, on the other hand, showed a dominant display in all departments in their previous game against Philippines a story emerged victorious with flying colours. They would like to maintain the same momentum in this match as they look forward to take their Asian Cup campaign deeper into the knockout stages.
