Busan I Park vs Pohang Steelers
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Busan Gudeok Stadium (Busan).
A six-game long drought in the schedule will not stretch Busan’s chances to win in the game, especially when facing a side that is nine points ahead of the home team in the table. Their previous encounter was on the road and they shared the spoils with Seongnam with a 1-1 scoreline.
Pohang Steelers has picked up 25 points from their 16 league attempts so far this season. They have been winless in the last four fixtures in the campaign, following a 2-0 loss on the road against Ulsan Hyundai last time out.
Both their recent two losses have been on the road, which will be a concern for Kim Gi-dong. But facing a home side that hasn’t had the best use of their ground advantage will back the visitors to change their trend in the outings.

- The host has been winless at home in the last two clashes.
Busan I’Park vs Pohang Steelers Prediction
The promoted side is yet to get the hang of the contest this season. With just 3 wins in the overall 16 fixtures so far, the host is not to be feared as a strong contender even at their own turf.
Besides, the Steelers had 5 of their 7 wins recorded in their away games in the campaign. Their successful outing results faded in the last two matches, but they will bounce back.
The draw no bet over Pohang Steelers will probably be the ideal tip regarding the probable full-time result of the game. The tip for under 3.5 goals and BTTS will probably be the best bets for the punters.
