Pohang Steelers vs Daejeon Hana Citizen Predictions


Despite some indifferent recent form, I expect Pohang to get back on the winning saddle on Saturday.

A home win is my top tip at Steelyard Stadium. 

  • Pohang won 11 of their last 20 home matches 
  • Pohang won 5 of their last 6 home matches against Daejeon Hana Citizen
  • Daejeon Hana Citizen lost 4 of their last 6 matches
  • Daejeon Hana Citizen lost 5 of their last 7 away matches (K League 1)

Head to Head


Saturday's K League 1 contest will be the 45th meeting between these sides since 2000. Pohang lead the H2H record with 23 wins to Daejeon's six. 

The Steelers have dominated recent encounters, scoring victories in 12 of their last 16 meetings since 2010. Daejeon have not beaten Pohang since a 1-0 win 14 years ago.  

Pohang Steelers Form


Pohang return to action after the international break, looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss at Gimcheon a fortnight ago. Two goals conceded in stoppage time saw last season's KL1 runners-up slip to a 3-1 defeat. 

Down to third in the division, the Steelers have failed to win four of their last five matches played since the start of May.

Tough to beat at Steelyard Stadium, Park Tae-Ha's men are unbeaten in their last 21 home matches (W12, D9). Four of their five most recent home fixtures finished deadlocked. 

Pohang Steelers Team News


Pohang boss Tae-Ha is expected to make some changes to his selection this weekend. Lee Ho-Jae and Jeong Jae-Hee are likely contenders to return to the first XI. 

Jong-woo Kim is the only expected absentee for the home side.

Daejeon Hana Form


Daejeon finally broke their winless run with a hard-fought victory against Daegu two weeks ago. Peniel Mlapa's late strike secured a first win in six matches for Lee Min-Sung's men. 

Sitting second from bottom of the division, Hana Citizen lost three successive league matches before their much-needed win two weekends ago.

On their travels, Min-Sung's side have struggled to find much form. Daejeon lost five and won only one of their last eight road trips. 

Daejeon Hana Team News


Daejeon boss Jung Kwang-Seok is expected to make at least one change to his selection on Saturday. Peniel Mlapa should earn a recall to the first XI after his match-winner against Daegu last time out.

Vladislavs Gutkovskis and Anton Kryvotsiuk remain unavailable for the visitors. 

Verdict

Pohang can get back to winning form against a road-sick Daejeon.

A home win is my only selection for Saturday's K League 1 clash.
