Our prediction for this South Korea K League 1 match:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Gyeongnam in the promotion playoffs, Busan secured return to the Korean top flight. Busan impressed in the K League 2 last term, but they face a difficult task against Pohang in the opening match of the new K League 1 season. The visitors are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in their opener, but preventing Pohang attackers from scoring is easier said than done.
The black and reds were producing fine displays in the Korean elite division last term, but they eventually missed out on a place in the AFC Champions League playoffs due to worse goal difference. The hosts aim to secure a top-three finish once again, and we are positive that they will pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match against Busan. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet in K League 1 for the first time since October 2015 when Pohang defeated Busan 2-0.
