FC Seoul vs Busan I’Park
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Seoul World Cup Stadium.
The Royals had been promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season. They have not been completely hopeless this campaign, but their inability to deal with high-pressure situations have really been showing lately.
Meanwhile, Kim Ho-young’s men were one of the best sides in 2019 in the K-League, and they had even qualified for the Champions League, via a third-place finish.
Moreover, they also do have a great h2h record against this rival at this stadium over the years. And most importantly, the regular season is about to come to an end, and Ho-young’s men are attempting to get into the top-six. They are desperate for a win.
Considering these reasons, expect a winning performance from Seoul this weekend.
Seoul vs Busan I’Park: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ho-young’s men had recorded 10 of the preceding 14 overall wins.
- In the past six years, only once have they lost against this opponent.
- At this stadium, the hosts had recorded 15 of the past 18 wins.
- The hosts had also scored two or more goals in 15 of the preceding 24 meetings here.
Seoul vs Busan I’Park: Prediction
The Royals had just been inducted into the top flight, and they expectedly are inexperienced. They were also winless in seven of the former eight overall match-ups, and had lost five of their former seven encounters.
Going on, two of their sole three wins this whole year, had come against the bottom two sides in the table.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a two-match winning run at this venue, and importantly, they have a great h2h record against this rival.
In fact, they had recorded 10 of the former 14 overall h2h wins, and had registered 15 of the preceding 18 such victories at this ground.
As such, expect Seoul to post an inspiring performance this Saturday at the World Cup Stadium.
