Seongnam vs Jeonbuk
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 09:30 UK/ 10:30 CET
Venue: Tancheon Stadium.
The Warriors are the reigning champions of the competition. However, they are currently placed second in the table, and are trailing four points below arch-rivals, Ulsan Hyundai.
Last year, the former had won the title, despite finishing level on points with Ulsan, as they had scored one extra goal.
Therefore, the Tigers are determined this season to secure the title at any cost. And this has made Jose Morais’s men extra desperate.
They have just four more match-days to overturn this four-point deficit. It surely does help that they are taking on a squad from the bottom-tier, over whom they have a great h2h record.
For the reasons, expect Jeonbuk to post a win this Saturday at the Tancheon Stadium.
Seongnam vs Jeonbuk: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Warriors had recorded 12 of the preceding 15 overall wins.
- It’s been five years since they last lost against this rival.
- At this stadium, the guests have lost just twice since 2010.
- In the past eight years, only once have the hosts kept a clean sheet at this ground.
Seongnam vs Jeonbuk: Prediction
Morais’s men have been one of the best teams in the competition for several years now, and along with Ulsan, have been a cut above the rest.
This season too, they are locked in an intense battle for the title with their arch-rivals, and are desperate for the win this weekend, as they are currently trailing in the second spot. Keep note that the regular season will come to an end in four game weeks.
On the other hand, their opposite number for the day are a weak squad. They have won just thrice at home in the past 12-month period, and they have been thoroughly dominated in h2h clashes over the years.
Likely, expect Jeonbuk to post a dominating win this Saturday.
