    Korea faces Lebanon in a match in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province on Tuesday night. It is the second match of the final round of Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

    Korea, which drew with Iraq 0-0 in its first match last week, must secure a win to ensure it exploits its home advantage.

    With tough away matches ahead in the Middle East, Korea's aim was to secure maximum points from its first two home matches, but has so far earned just one point from last week's draw.

    Korea has a better head-to-head record against Lebanon with 10 wins, one loss and three draws.
