  • Pohang Steelers’ solid start to the season (W1, D1) extended their K League 1 (KL1) unbeaten run to six matches (W3, D3). They have now lost only one of their last 14 KL1 fixtures (W9, D4, L1), and led 1-0 at half-time in both matches this term.
  • At home, Pohang are unbeaten in eight league games (W6, D2), a run that includes a 2-1 win over Seoul. Notably, eight of the 16 goals they scored during that period came on or after the 80th minute, whilst only eight of Pohang’s ten home league wins last season came by a one-goal margin.
  • Seoul’s 1-0 win over Gwangju snapped a run of six league matches without a win (D2, L4), although it was also the sixth KL1 game in a row in which they failed to score more than once. They have also picked up an average of 1.33 yellow cards per match across their last six KL1 fixtures.
  • Away from home, Seoul have not won in four league fixtures (D2, L2) with six of their last seven such games seeing both teams score. Furthermore, only one of their last six halves in KL1 away games featured over 2.5 goals.
  • Players to watch: Aleksandar Paločević has netted in both of Pohang’s opening league games, but neither strike came before the 40th minute. Four of his five goals last term arrived after the break.
  • Six of the last seven KL1 goals that Dong-jin Park has scored came after the 35th minute, including his strike against Gangwon in Seoul’s season opener.
  • Stat attack: Pohang have scored exactly two goals in five of their last six KL1 home games.
  • Last season, Seoul saw both teams score in a league-high 73.68% of their KL1 games.
  • Pohang edge the KL1 H2H stakes (W38, D35, L35), and have not lost any of the last three renewals (W2, D1).
