The K League 1 meeting at Pohang Steel Yard on Sunday sees home side Pohang Steelers go into battle with Ulsan Hyundai.
Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Pohang Steelers v Ulsan Hyundai game - as well as up-to-date odds.
Pohang Steelers will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-1 K League 1 triumph versus Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
Fixtures featuring Pohang Steelers have proved to be entertaining ones recently with plenty of scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past 6 clashes alone, the sum total of 24 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 4 goals per game) with 16 of these coming from Steelers.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Pohang Steelers:
- have not won against Ulsan Hyundai in their last 2 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their previous 8 league matches at home. A very good run at home.
Ulsan Hyundai come into this game following on from a 4-1 K League 1 win with the downing of Sangju Sangmu in their previous match.
The stats don’t lie, and Ulsan Hyundai have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in all. Defensively, Horang-i have clearly had some problems. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will persist in this upcoming game.
Heading into this contest, Ulsan Hyundai haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels going back to 04/05/2019, there has been little between the sides with Pohang Steelers winning 3 of those games, Ulsan Hyundai 3 and 0 being draws in regulation time.
In all, 18 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 8 of them for Steelers and 10 created by Horang-i. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.
Team News: Pohang Steelers
Pohang Steelers boss Soon-Ho Choi will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match owing to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Ulsan Hyundai
Ulsan boss Do-Hoon Kim has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Chung-yong Lee (Knee Injury) and Chul Hong (Knee Injury) are not ready for selection.
Pohang Steelers will have to perform well to be putting a goal past this Ulsan Hyundai side who we think will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore see a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Ulsan Hyundai when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
