Pohang Steelers vs Busan I’Park Prediction
In the initial phase of the prior season, PSFC were placed 12th in the table. But they slowly managed to improve their standing bit by bit, and towards the end, they were locked in a race with FC Seoul for the final Champions League spot. Unfortunately, they were placed fourth due to goal difference (after finishing level on points).
As such, PSFC are determined to not let anything of that sorts happen again. They are on the hunt for as many points as they could amass, right from the get-go. And, into this scenario come the Royals. Keep note that the guests of the day are a newly-promoted team, and that they are severely inexperienced in this top flight.
Going on, since August of 2019, PSFC have lost just once in total, and at home, they have been on an unbeaten run for the previous eight months. They are also unbeaten against this opponent since 2015, and have scored goals against them in 10 of the prior 12 encounters.
Finally, at this venue, the guests have won just once since 2013 in h2h clashes, and they have scored goals here only in one match-up in the past seven years. Taking into account all these observations, it’s deduced that Pohang Steelers are the favorites to put forth the better performance.
