Team News: Incheon United
The Incheon United boss Sung-hwan Cho does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this game with a fully injury-free group available to select from.
We think that Durumi may well kick off with a 3-4-3 formation this time with Dong-Heon Kim, Yeon-Su Kim, Han-Jin Kweon, Ban-Suk Oh, Si-Hoo Hong, Hyeon-Bin Park, Do-Hyuk Kim, Woo-Jin Choi, Seung-Ho Park, Seong-Hoon Cheon and Bo-Sub Kim.
Team News: Ulsan Hyundai
Thanks to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the Ulsan Hyundai manager Myung-bo Hong has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.
We believe Horang-i seem most likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting Soo-Hyuk Jo, Tae-Hwan Kim, Kee-Hee Kim, Young-Gwon Kim, Myung-Jae Lee, Jae-Wook Lee, Darijan Bojanic, Yun-Gu Kang, Ataru Esaka, Valeri Qazaishvili and Min-Kyu Joo.
In our view, Ulsan Hyundai must be fancied to find the net against this Incheon United outfit, but that may not quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re predicting a narrow 2-1 victory for Incheon United at full-time. Let’s just see how this one goes.
