Daegu hosts Jeonbuk Motors in round 15 of South Korean K League 1. The match will be played on Saturday, July 8th at Daegu Stadium (Daegu)
Daegu takes third place, and it recently suffered defeat from the leader Ulsan at home (1-3). Everything is relatively good in the attack, but the defense... The hosts concede at the level of outsiders. Yes, there were two rounds with clean sheets, but the team needs to proceed from the opponents it has to meet. Daegu lost to the Warriors without options in two last matches and did not even manage to score. Yes, the hosts will fight to get into the top three, but there are teams that look more promising.
The visitors will certainly try to catch up with Ulsan at a distance, but this will not be so easy. Jeonbuk shows a great game and practically does not lose points, although it held two last away matches unsuccessfully. But if you want to beat the Green Warriors, you need to score them. Jeonbuk is very attentive in defense, conceding less than a goal per round. If we consider the confrontation with Daegu, it will be possible to talk about unused opportunities. However, Jeonbuk didn’t have serious problems in head-to-head meetings of recent years.
I will choose the victory of the Warriors with a zero handicap. It is a cooler and more balanced team with a better selection of players. In comparison with the opponent, the defense of Jeonbuk works much better. This can become a key point on the road. What has Daegu to offer? The hosts look good now, but they combine good matches with failures. A zero handicap on the visitors seems to be the best option.
Prediction for the match: Jeonbuk to win with 0.0 handicap
