Ulsan Hyundai vs Pohang Steelers
South Korea – K-League 1
Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium.
The Tigers had missed out on the title the last season, despite finishing level on points with the toppers and having a lead of 23 points over the next team in the standings. They are determined to make amends for this near-miss, and as of now, they seem well set to secure that objective.
They have been the best team in the competition this year by a mile, and have scored a total of 34 goals till now – with no other team managing even 30.
On top of that, they have dominated this opponent in h2h clashes recently, and importantly had recorded a 0-4 win on the road in the reverse fixture just a month back.
By the looks of things, a win for Ulsan Hyundai seems the likely outcome.
Ulsan Hyundai vs Pohang Steelers: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The latest encounter between the two had ended in a 0-4 win for them on the road.
- Five of the preceding six wins at this stadium had gone to the hosts.
- The guests had failed to score in four of the former eight encounters at this stadium.
- Ten of the former eleven clashes at this venue saw the visitors failing to keep clean sheets.
Ulsan Hyundai vs Pohang Steelers: Prediction
The Tigers were unbeaten in 18 of their previous 19 overall games, and their sole loss this year had come against the reigning champions Jeonbuk.
They had also won 11 of their preceding 13 overall fixtures, and at home, in the past twelve months, they have lost just twice.
They are also placed top-most in the table at the moment, and have easily been the best offensive team in the whole competition by a huge margin.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in five of their last seven match-ups, and they had lost the reverse fixture at home 0-4. Moreover, they have also been the weaker team in h2h games over the years as well.
Taking these factors into account, expect Ulsan Hyundai to secure the three points this weekend.
