Goyang Auxiliary Stadium will host Thursday’s friendly between Korea Republic and Costa Rica, the two teams who meet for the first time since September 2018.

Back then Korea emerged triumphant, and Paulo Bento’s men are once again seen as favourites to beat los Ticos.

A man to watch in the home side will be Son Heung-min, who scored a hat-trick in a 6-2 win over Leicester City.

Costa Rica, on the other hand, booked their place at the 2022 World Cup finals thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over New Zealand.

Los Ticos will use the upcoming warm-up games to test as many players as possible, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on Son and Co. this time out.

Korea Republic defenders should have experienced attacker Joel Campbell at bay. Bryan Ruiz is likely to start from the bench.

This match will be played on 23/09/2022 at 12:00

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended Pick: Home Win.
