Ulsan Hyundai vs Gangwon FC
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium (Ulsan).
The runners-up last season has booked an early spot at the top of the table in the new edition of K League 1 and seems strong in their form this season. Gangwon is also a top part team and hence, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair.
Ulsan Hyundai vs Gangwon FC Match preview
Ulsan Hyundai has lost only one of their last ten fixtures in the campaign. They are on a two-game winning streak in the league, following a 1-3 win on the road against Daegu last time out.
The host has lost only one of their five home matches in the league this season. And at home, the Tigers have shown their strength in scoring 10 goals while conceding only 4 goals in the same period.
The 4-1 win at home against Gwangju in the last match in the contest put an end to Gangwon’s six-game straight winless streak in their schedule across all major competitions.
The Kodiaks have only one win in their 5 trips on the road until now in the campaign. They are winless in the last three outings with a double loss to the end of their away record.
Having a poor away form in the league will probably pull back the visitors from creating more chances in the game considering the host’s strength at home or in the overall league.

Ulsan Hyundai vs Gangwon FC Prediction
Ulsan Hyundai is a powerful side compared to Gangwon and with added home ground advantage to their side; the host is likely to come out victorious in the encounter.
The visitor had a couple of defeats in the recent fixtures and most of them were in their away games and this poor away form is likely to hold them back in the game.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet in the encounter considering the poor away form of Kodiaks in the game and the superior form of the hosts in the overall league.
Besides, a BTTS with 1.60 will also come in handy since both sides are in the top part of the table.
For the probability of a high-scoring affair as mentioned earlier, the tip for over 2.5 goals will be the best choice from the goals area for the punters to yield decent returns from the game.
