Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Seoul World Cup Stadium.
The Firebirds have been performing superbly in the last several weeks, and they seem determined to secure a podium finish at the end of the season.
As of now, they are placed third in the table, and have a lead of three points over the fourth-placed team. Not only that, but the fourth-placed Pohang are taking on the best team in the competition, Ulsan Hyundai next, are expected to drop points.
Likely, Kim Tae-wan’s men have a huge opportunity to improve their lead – especially since they are taking on Kim Ho-young’s men, who are struggling to show consistency in their displays at present.
Moreover, Tae-wan’s men also do have an impressive h2h record over the years as well.
Likely, expect Sangju Sangmu to be the better team on the pitch this Saturday.
