Seongnam vs FC Seoul
South Korea – K League 1
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Tancheon Stadium (Seongnam)
After 13 rounds are completed both these squads are already in the relegation group. For the home side, this is not a new experience as they finished 9th last time around. They have to improve pretty much in every aspect of the game. From the 13 games, they have scored only 9 goals which are the second-lowest tally so far.
For Seoul, the start of the season is nothing less than disastrous. A team that is the second runners up in the competition is second to last in the points table currently. They have lost 9 of their 13 games which are the most number of defeats. No other team has conceded as many goals as the team from the capital.

- Three matches during that spell of play had fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
- The visitors have won four of their last five trips to this ground.

- Both sides found the back of the net in three of those games as well.
- Seoul is winless in five previous league games on the road.
Seongnam FC vs FC Seoul Prediction
Even though Seoul had a dominant performance in the majority of the head to head games, Seongnam has shown signs of a comeback in the last two matches. They have a winning streak going on in these meetings.
Also, things are not going well for the visiting side that is winless in five away matches on the trot. At the same time, the Magpies have an unbeaten run going on in both league and Cup competitions. So I think we can see the hosts picking up all three points on Saturday.
The majority of their recent clashes at this ground saw both of them finding the target. Even though the away team is at the wrong end of the table they still have a good attacking unit. They have recently shown that power against Pohang in the league and Cup despite losing both those games.
But the home side has problems in defense which can be exploited by the team from the capital. So I am backing the hosts to win with both of them scoring.
