South Korea will face Bahrain in their first knockout match at the Asian Football Confederation(AFC) Asian Cup next week.

Following the completion of the group stage Thursday, Group C winner South Korea has been matched up against Group A third-place Bahrain.

Their round of 16 showdown will begin at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Korea time, at Dubai's Rashid Stadium.

South Korea, ranked 53rd by FIFA, have a fairly good chance of defeating the world's 113th Bahrain.

Should South Korea beat Bahrain to advance to the quarterfinals, its opponent will be the winner of the Qatar-Iraq match.
