Johor Darul Takzim vs Pohang Steelers Predictions


Johor Darul Takzim can keep it close against Pohang Steelers. I am backing a draw in the AFC Champions League.

  • Johor Darul Takzim are undefeated in 37 of their last 40 matches (all competitions).
  • Johor Darul Takzim have won 17 of their last 24 matches (all competitions).
  • Pohang Steelers are undefeated in 12 of their last 14 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Pohang Steelers have a 1-0 advantage against Johor Darul Takzim. They won 4-1 on Monday in a closer match than the score suggests. 

Johor Darul Takzim Form


Johor Darul Takzim are leading the Malaysian Super League after 13 matches. They have the best attack and defence with 28 goals scored and six conceded.

Benjamin Mora’s side have won 16 of their last 22 matches in all competitions. They lost 1-0 against Nagoya Grampus in their opening group game in the AFC Champions League.

Johor bounced back with a 1-0 win against Ratchaburi, Bérgson seeing his penalty saved and Leandro Velázquez scoring the winner. It was a deserved victory after having 23-7 shots.

Johor Darul Takzim’s last match was a 4-1 defeat against Pohang Steelers. Velázquez opened the scoring but they conceded three penalties in a closer match than the score suggests.

Brazilian striker Bérgson has scored 11 goals in 11 appearances in the Super League this season.

Pohang Steelers Form


Pohang Steelers are undefeated in 12 of their last 14 matches. The South Korean club have won four of their last five games.

Gi-dong Kim’s side beat Ratchaburi 2-0 in their opening match in the AFC Champions League. It was a deserved win with Boris Tashchy opening the scoring early on and Sang-hyub Lim wrapping it up in the 81st minute.

Pohang then suffered a 3-0 defeat against Nagoya Grampus. They were 1-0 down when Kwang-hoon Shin was sent off and they couldn’t find a way back.

Pohang Steelers’ last match was a 4-1 win against Johor Darul Takzim. They fell behind early but hit back with three penalties to Boris Tashchy, Sang-woo Kang and Sang-hyub Lim and a strike to Gi-pyo Kwon.
