Pohang Steelers vs Suwon Bluewings
South Korea K League 1
Date: Saturday, 11 July 2020
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Pohang Steel Yard (Pohang)
The Steelers are enjoying life in the league currently. They have won all three league games back to back that too without conceding a single goal. Among the top five teams, they have lost the most matches and that needs to be taken care of if they wish to improve last year’s fourth-place finish.
The visitors have lost half of their 10 league games while winning only two in return. They have to solve the defensive mistakes in the games to come. After scoring more than a goal per game on average the defense has not risen to the occasion.

Pohang Steelers vs Suwon Bluewings: Prediction
The visitors have lost half of their away games so far. Also from their last five league matches Bluewings have only one win. The head to head stats does not give any of them the upper hand. But Pohang Steelers have done extremely well in away matches as they remain unbeaten in 5 matches on the road. But they need to win at home more often. Based on the current form I am backing the home team to get a narrow win.
The hosts have kept a clean sheet in all their recent league games. This is a major improvement from the initial games. From the 10 matches, they have scored 21 goals which the best scoring tally after Ulsan Hyundai. At the same time, Suwon has also scored in three recent games and this includes the last two away matches. So we can expect to see goals on both ends of the field.
