THE TEAM NEWS

GANGWON

  • Gangwon picked up four points from their opening three matches of the new K League 1 season with a win against Seoul, followed by a defeat against Sangju Sangmu and then most recently a draw against Seongnam.
  • They had looked to be on their way to victory against Seongnam last weekend when Ko Moo-yeol scored after 17 minutes but they were unable to hold on to the advantage and had to settle for a point.
  • Keeping clean sheets in home games has been problematic for Gangwon with only two shut-outs in their last nine home K League 1 fixtures.

JEONBUK MOTORS

  • Jeonbuk Motors maintained their 100% winning record with a 2-0 victory at home against Daegu in round three of the 2020 K League 1 campaign.
  • Murilo put them into lead early in the second half and just over 20 minutes later their quest for maximum points was made easier when Cho Kyu-sung added a second goal.
  • Some of the gloss was taken from the victory by the dismissal of Cho Kyu-sung in the closing moments of the encounter and he will have to sit this game out.

THE PREDICTION

Jeonbuk Motors will be looking to extend their 100% record with a three-point haul against Gangwon who have had a mixed start to the season. Jeonbuk have not been in dazzling form but have the quality and belief within their ranks to grind out a win even when they are not at their best and they might well do just that on this occasion by edging out Gangwon in a low-scoring encounter.
