Gwangju FC vs Pohang Steelers Prediction
Gwangju seems to have addressed problems when facing stronger sides in the league. The Steelers were the fourth positioned side in the campaign last season, which gives them a slight edge over the host.
Besides, the Griffins have never been successful against Pohang in any of their h2h clashes for the past nine years in the league.
The safest bet will be to go with a draw no bet over Pohang Steelers in the clash. At 1.50 odds, it will yield decent returns for the punters.
