Pohang Steelers vs Daegu
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Pohang Steel Yard.
Just four more games remain in the regular season, and these two teams have gotten themselves into the top-six. It’s important, as the first six and bottom six teams will be divided into two different groups for the Final Round fixtures.
However, PSFC are in possession of the spot that allots entry into the Champions League play-off round, while Lee Byung-keun’s men are placed just below, trailing by two points.
As such, the winner between these two sides will climb to the fourth spot, and this should be enough motivation to give their 100% on the pitch.
Considering these circumstances and the offensive performances of the squads over the years, expect goals from both teams this Saturday.
Pohang Steelers vs Daegu: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two clashed on the pitch, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scoreline.
- Kim Gi-dong’s men registered 14 of the preceding 21 overall wins.
- Eight of the former eleven wins at this stadium had gone to the hosts.
- The home team had also scored two or more goals in nine of the former thirteen fixtures.
Pohang Steelers vs Daegu: Prediction
PSFC were unbeaten in 11 of their last 14 overall match-ups, and two of these three losses had come against Jeonbuk, and Ulsan Hyundai – two of the best teams in the league.
They were also unbeaten in 15 of their former 18 appearances at this stadium. Meanwhile, their counterparts are on a four-game winless run, and had conceded six goals in their latest match-up alone.
On top of that, Gi-dong’s men also do have a good h2h record against this opponent, and particularly so at this venue.
As such, expect Pohang Steelers to emerge victorious this weekend.
However, understand that Byung-keun’s men are desperate as well, and they are determined to secure the ticket to the Champions League.
Moreover, they have consistently found the back of the net in away fixtures, and have failed to do so at this ground just twice since 2009.
Likely, anticipate goals from both teams this weekend.
