It's going to be an exciting weekend of baseball for fans in South Korea and Japan.
On Friday, Team Korea defeated Mexico seven-to-three in the Super round of the World Baseball Softball Confederation Premier12 in Tokyo, securing their ticket to the 2020 Olympics.
With that result, South Korea will face Japan twice this weekend.
The two countries will square off first at 7PM Saturday for the last Super Round game at the Tokyo Dome.
Regardless of tonight's result, they'll end up taking the top two spots in the Super Round standings.
That means they'll clash again in the Premier12 championship final at 7PM on Sunday.
