While the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) finals held in Taiwan and Japan is in the final stage, Korea is in a position to bet on advancing to the quarterfinals in the hands of others.
Groups A and B of the first round of the WBC finals were held in Taiwan and Japan, respectively. All schedules for Group A were completed on the 12th, and Group B will have two matches on the 13th.
First of all, in Group A, all 5 teams tied with 2 wins and 2 losses to determine the minimum goal percentage. As a result, Cuba and Italy advanced to the quarterfinals with first and second place.
The first place in Group B, which will face Italy in the quarterfinals, has already been confirmed by Japan, which has already won 4 victories. The second place in Group B, which will meet Cuba in the quarterfinals, will be decided through a match on the 13th.
Australia currently ranks second in Group B with a record of 2 wins and 1 loss. The Czech Republic and Korea Republic are now recording 1 win and 2 losses. Also, China is at the bottom with 3 losses.
Australia and the Czech Republic will have their final round 1 match on the 13th at 12:00 PM and Korea and China at 7:00 PM. The match between Korea and China is not important. The match between Australia and the Czech Republic will decide everything.메이저사이트
If Australia beats the Czech Republic in this match, Korea will fail to advance to the quarterfinals. On the other hand, if Korea defeats China after the Czech Republic defeats Australia, the three teams will be tied at 2-2.
In this case, the winner-win rule is eliminated. Three teams will compete to advance to the quarterfinals based on the minimum conceded percentage. In other words, the match between Australia and the Czech Republic will decide everything.
After all, Korea cannot advance to the quarterfinals on its own. The other team’s hand determines the number of cases of advancing to the quarterfinals and the elimination of the quarterfinals.
This is because of the defeat against Australia on the 9th. Accordingly, Korea should have risked everything against Australia, even if the match against Japan on the 10th was a cold game.
