Our prediction for this South Korea K League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Sangju Stadium pits together two evenly-matched sides. Sangju Sangmu kicked off the season with a heavy 4-0 loss at Ulsan, but they are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures. The hosts have been showing signs of improvement of late, but it has to be noted that talented midfielder Se-Jin Jeon is likely to miss the Pohang game with injury.
Moon Seon-Min is widely expected to step up. Pohang Steelers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Ulsan, with the team dropping to sixth position in the standings. In their last meeting in the Korean elite division Sangju Sangmu defeated Pohang Steelers 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. The Firebirds defeated Gangwon and Gwangju in the previous two home games in the national championship.
