Will Dragons be able to break the chain of losses against South Korea in their next match? 

Matchday 6 of the second round of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers is going on and two Asian teams, South Korea and China will face each other. South Korea are the hosts of the game and their players are looking in tremendous form. Looking at the table group table rankings, where South Korea are in the first position with 13 points, China stand just below them with 8 points. South Korea are very tough and resistant opponents for China, as there is a huge gap between both the teams in almost all the aspects.

It would be unfair to compare both teams in terms of their performance quality, as the clear difference is visible in their FIFA rankings. Where South Korea on one hand stands at 23rd position, China on the other hand are in the 88th spot. However, the game of football is not as easy as it looks, there are lots of possibilities and uncertainties. The performance of both teams in their respective last few matches have been consistent, as they both have secured more wins and less losses.
