Team News: Suwon Samsung Bluewings
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Suwon Samsung Bluewings boss Byung-keun Lee to be concerned with due to a largely intact group. Sung-geun Choi (Knee Injury) will miss out. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Jong-sung Lee and Ho-gang Han.
Team News: Daegu FC
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Daegu FC gaffer Won-kwon Choi to contend with. Cesinha (Fractured Rib) misses out for this game. Jin-woo Jo is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Daegu FC and Suwon Samsung Bluewings should play out a closely-fought contest here.
A draw is a real possibility, as we are expecting there to be little between them. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
