Team News: Daegu FC
Daegu FC boss André Gaspar has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Jeong-un Hong (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Soon-min Hwang (Muscle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We believe that FC Seoul will have to work hard as a team to register a score against this Daegu FC team who will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Daegu FC at the conclusion of the game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
