Daegu vs FC Seoul
South Korea K League 1
Date: Sunday, 14 June 2020
Kick off 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Daegu Stadium.
Top half finishers last season, both Daegu and Seoul look for a way out of bottom half of the table when they lock horns on Sunday.
Daegu grabbed their first win of the season last week at the expense of Seongnam, who ever unbeaten until then. The Sky Blues dominated the match but conceded the first goal and their persistence eventually paid off late in the second half to complete a 2-1 win.
The care taker manager Lee Byung-keun will be still worried about his team’s finishing abilities as well as a sloppy defense that conceded a number of unwanted freekicks around the penalty box.
Fifth on the standings last season, Daegu drew 3 and lost 1 of the four previous games this season. They can now look forward for their first home win of the campaign having drawn Pohang and Sangju Sangmu (both 1-1) in the 2 home games so far.
Meantime last week, FC Seoul were given some footballing lessons by defending champions Jeonbuk at their own backyard. After an even first half that ended 1-1, the team in Green raised their game and earned a well-deserved 4-1 victory.
FC Seoul has now lost two games on the bounce after winning in 2 of the 3 opening games of the season. The team currently managed by Choi Yong-soo finished third in the league last season and have a good reason to ask his boys to raise their game this weekend.
On top of that, the visitors will be confident in this trip as they enjoyed some success in recent visits to the Daegu Stadium. A potential thriller is on the cards with both teams desperate for three points to wrap up matchday 6 of the 2020 K-League season.
Daegu vs Seoul Head-to-head
The corresponding fixture of last season was a goal-less draw, a result that put Seoul on a 5 match unbeaten run (3 wins, 2 draw).
Their duels are generally entertaining with both teams scoring in 5 of the previous six. Also, 4 of them saw 3 or more goals in total.
At the Daegu Stadium, Seoul are unbeaten since 2017, again a streak of 5 games, however 4 of them are draws.
BTTS happened in 8 of their last 10 h2h clashes at this ground, but only 6 of those saw over 2.5 goals.
Daegu vs Seoul Prediction
Both teams have been inconsistent at the start of the season and therefore the full-time result can go either way. More doubts in terms of match result is driven by Seoul’s mini success at this ground in recent years.
Yet, we find goal markets profitable for this K-League fixture, since both teams failed to guard their defenses this season.
Daegu created at least 14 chances in each of their two home games this season, yet managed to score and conceded 1 each in those fixtures. While, Seoul scored 3 and conceded 4 in their two road games so far.
Both teams to Score is the standout bet for this K-League match between Daegu and FC Seoul. For safe side, punters can back the over 1.5 goals full time for small returns.
