Seongnam FC vs Gangwon FC
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Tancheon Stadium (Seongnam).
With both teams taking a hit to slide to the relegation group, we can expect an action-packed encounter since they will try to climb out of it in the league table.
Seongnam is unbeaten in their last two league fixtures, following a 0-1 win on the road against Suwon last time out in their schedule. They have only two wins in the last ten fixtures across all major contests.
After five attempts as the host, the Magpies have won, lost four clashes, and drew one. They have conceded 9 goals so far and have scored only one at home.
In the meantime, Gangwon has tried to keep the goals coming in away from home. The visitors scored 5 goals while conceding 10 in their 6 trips on the road until now.
The Kodiaks have been winless in their last four tours in the campaign. They will visit after a 1-0 loss on the road against Ulsan Hyundai last time out in the league.
With a slightly better form in the league, the Kodiaks will probably create more opportunities in the game to get closer to the three points from the encounter.
Seongnam FC vs Gangwon FC Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Only one of their recent five fixtures has ended in a draw.
- Three of their last four meetings have seen both teams score.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Gangwon.
Seongnam FC vs Gangwon FC Prediction
Even though Seongnam is coming on the back of a win and Gangwon is running after a rough patch in their league schedule lately, it has to be noted that the results also depend on the opponents faced in the fixture.
Kim Nam-il’s men won against a bottom-dweller side while the Kodiaks have surrendered to the teams from the top 5 positions in the campaign as it stands. This shows that their losses can’t be that bad.
Compared to the Magpies, Kim Byung-soo and his men are in a better position in the table with a narrow one-point lead over the former. The visitor has a slight edge in their h2h history too.
Let aside winning the majority of their recent five meetings, the Kodiaks are unbeaten in three of their last four visits to this venue and have both teams scoring in all those wins.
Based on these stats, the double chance of favoring Gangwon at 1.40 odds will be the best bet along with the tip for over 1.5 goals with the same odds and a BTTS with 1.80 odds in ninety minutes to yield decent returns for the punters.
