Match Preview and Predictions

  • Pohang Steelers’ last three K League 1 (KL1) outings have now featured over 3.5 goals (W2, L1). Four matches in succession have seen them concede in the first half, but they actually possess the strongest first-half record in KL1 so far (W4, D1, L1).
  • Pohang are, however, on a two-match home losing run, with both featuring over 1.5 first-half goals. A late show is entirely possible in any case, as all six of Pohang’s clashes this season have contained a goal after the 65th minute, with the latest three seeing one after 75 minutes.
  • Jeonbuk Motors meanwhile, currently top the table and a return of three clean sheets across their five wins has certainly helped. Two of three goals conceded came in the first half, although they have managed eight second-half goals themselves (80%), for a second-half goal difference of +7.
  • Four of Jeonbuk’s six KL1 encounters this season have produced under 2.5 goals, but the two which ended over were both away fixtures. They are notably without an away clean sheet in their last five attempts across all competitions.
  • Players to watch: Stanislav Iljutcenko has opened the scoring in all three of Pohang’s league victories this season.
  • Forty-one-year-old striker Lee Dong-Gook has netted four second-half goals this season, with all coming in Jeonbuk wins.
  • Stat attack: Pohang have conceded an average of 1.50 goals across their previous 12 home matches (W6, D2, L4).
  • Pohang are averaging 1.67 yellow cards this season, whilst Jeonbuk have already received two red cards.
  • Six of Jeonbuk’s nine most recent away league wins have seen them concede at least once.
  • Two (33.33%) of Jeonbuk’s previous six league contests held this season have seen both teams score.
