Preview: Daegu FC vs Incheon United

Away from the glamour of the Super Match there is yet another relegation 6-pointer for Incheon United. The 11th place United host a suddenly resurgent Daegu FC side who have climbed to 8th in the table and separated themselves from the relegation battle with a four point gap.

Last Time Out

Incheon United were hammered 5-0 by Pohang Steelers. They were poor both at the back and going forward. A VAR awarded red card after 27mins basically killed off the tie as Incheon were already 2-0 down.

Daegu came from two goals behind to rescue a 2-2 draw on the road against Sangju Sangmu. Cesinha scored both of the goals bringing his tally up to 7 for the season.

Previous Meetings 

September 30th: Daegu 1-1 Incheon United 

Just 3 weeks ago these two evenly matched sides seemed to settle for a draw. A Ha Chang-Rae own-goal gave Daegu the early lead, before a Park Yong-Ji equalizer finished the scoring on the day.

During 2017 season all 3 of the previous games between Incheon and Daegu have ended all square. 1-1 in September, 0-0 in July and 2-2 back at the start of the season.

Over the years these sides have have played each other 33 times in the K League, with the record favoring Incheon.

Daegu Wins: 7
Incheon United Wins: 13
Draws: 13

Who To Watch

There are a few standout players for both sides, players who need to step up help their sides survive relegation.

Incheon United

Thirty-three-year defender old Lee Yun-Pyo have a game to forget last weekend but over the season he’s been very important at the back. He has 195 games for Incheon over seven seasons, which shows his loyalty and ability to adapt to new managers and teammates.

The current top goalscorer, Song Si-Woo, has developed a super-sub reputation this season. He’s made 29 appearances but only played the full 90 five times (including last weekend).

Pohang Steelers

Brazilian forward Junior Negao has found form over the past few months with 10 goals in 9 games. The former Pattaya United man looked out of the Daegu squad before André Gaspar took control.

Goalkeeper Cho Hyun-Woo has had a strong season which lead to a national team call up recently. He’s one reason Daegu haven’t been in more trouble this season.

Prediction

This season Daegu and Incheon have drawn every game they’ve played against each other. So therefore I should see this ending in a draw. However based on last week's awful Incheon performance we can back them winning or even drawing this one. Fingers crossed Incheon switch things up and rebound, but I have to give the edge to Daegu.
