THE TEAM NEWS

SEOUL

  • Seoul have bounced back well from losing their opening game of the season by claiming consecutive wins against Gwangju and Pohang Steelers in their last two outings.
  • In their most recent match against Pohang Steelers last weekend they recovered from the setback of conceding a goal after just five minutes to register a 2-1 victory.
  • A goal from Hwang Hyun-soo ten minutes before half time levelled the match against Pohang and then Spanish midfielder Osmar scored the winner after 73 minutes.

SEONGNAM

  • Seongnam have started their campaign with a win and two draws from their opening three matches making them one of only three unbeaten teams after three rounds of action.
  • They fell behind early in the first half against Gangwon last time out but responded well and hit back with a goal from Kwon Soon-hyung ten minutes into the second period.
  • Only three teams conceded fewer goals than Seongnam in the 2019 league campaign and they have been very pleased with their defensive efforts so far this season with just one goal conceded in three matches.

THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams will be fairly satisfied with their haul of points after three rounds of the 2020 K League 1 season and this has the potential to be a very competitive match. Seoul will certainly be buoyant after winning their last two games but they may need to score twice to win this game and that is a difficult task against a defence that does not give much away. Seongnam have drawn their last two outings and that sequence could well be extended to three draws in a row after this encounter.
