South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:00 UK/ 11:00 CET
Venue: Jeonju World Cup Stadium (Jeonju).
Jeonju World Cup Stadium will pit together, the reigning champions with Sangju Sangmu with an improved form in yet another clash in the K League 1. Jeonbuk has a lead of 10 points over the visitors after each team had 16 league appearances in their respective schedules.
The host is on a four-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 1-3 win on the road against Suwon Bluewings’ last time out in the schedule.
Sangju Sangmu has been dropping points in the recent encounters in the schedule. They have only two wins in the last five league clashes and will visit after a 2-1 loss at home against FC Seoul in the previous encounter.
It will be hard for Kim Tae-wan to pick up his team from that loss against the reigning champions.

Jeonbuk vs Sangju Sangmu Prediction
The reigning champions will have no doubt in registering another home win in the campaign, especially against a side that finished 7th in the table last season.
More than their home ground advantage, the host is backed by their unbeaten streak in the campaign lately. The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
In their h2h meetings, only one of their last eight clashes has seen the teams combine to score over three goals in a match.
With the favorites averaging 1.75 goals in the campaign until now this season, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
