Jeonbuk FC vs Seongnam FC
South Korea K League 1
Date: Saturday, 11 July 2020
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Jeonju World Cup Stadium (Jeonju).
After just 10 matches, the reigning champs are still occupying the top spot. With just five goals conceded they have the best defense in the competition.
Compared to other opposition scoring has to improve leaps and bounds. But the recent loss against Sangju Sangmu has given them a warning about the changing equations in the league.
The Magpies are 11th in the table with just 2 wins in 10 matches. They have already lost half of the matches they played mainly due to conceding goals very cheaply.
With one of the best teams in the country coming up next, they will have to prepare for a hard day at the office.

- The home team remains unbeaten against this opposition at this ground in over 7 years.

Jeonbuk FC vs Seongnam FC: Prediction
Only two teams have not lost any home game so far. One was Daegu and the other is the current titleholders. They will attack from the word go this Saturday.
Seongnam has failed to get at least a point against any of the top five teams so far. So I do not see them take the lead in either half of the match. So we can expect the hosts dominating both the halves of this match this weekend.
The only team yet to concede a goal at home soil is Jeonbuk. From their 4 matches at this ground, they have netted 5 goals. After this game that stat will have a major update for sure.
Meantime, Seongnam has not scored past strong opponents like Ulsan Hyundai, Pohang Steelers, or Sangju Sangmu in recent weeks. So we can expect only one team to get the goals in this tie.
