The Korean League is ready for initiation as the footballing world slowly but surely gets back into business. The first match of the new season will be contested between the Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and the Suwon Samsung Bluewings. The Jeonbuk Hyundayi Motors would have their hearts broken after not being able to secure the league title last season as they fell short by just a point. The Motors had 68 points on the board, while Ulsan finished at the top as the champions with 69 points. Interestingly enough, had both teams finished on level terms, The Jeonbuk Motors would have won the title due to a slightly better goal difference. As for the Suwon Bluewings, they would be hoping to improve from last season as they finished at the 8th spot with 40 points. That being said and done, both sides will be eager to set the tone in the right manner early on in the 2020 campaign.
Date- Friday, May 8
Kick-Off- 3:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Jeonju World Cup Stadium
Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors
The Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors will be without two of their top scorers from last season. Ricardo Lopes and Shin-uk Kim have both made their moves to the Chinese Super League. Quite recently, Ja-ryong Ku was signed from the Suwon Bluewings and should be fitting in as one the main men in defence. Gue-sung Jo and Lars Veldwij have also been brought into the club and will have the onus to be among the goals while being in charge of the attack. Gue-sung Jo did make his debut in the AFC Champions League and scored a goal on debut while coming off the bench.
As for the Suwon Bluewings, D Geon-No is in contention of starting in at goal. M-Jun-Jae, D Hendy, S-Ki-Min and J-Seong-Lee could feature as the back four. S-Keun-Choi, M-Uh-Kim could partner in midfield, while A Taggart, G-Heui Kim and K Hun-Yeom are likely to start up top for their sides.
JNB (Expected Playing 11)- B-Keun-Song; C-Sun-Choi, J-Ho-Hong, B-Kyeong-Choi, Jin-Su-Kim; K-Won-Han, B-Kyung-Kim, S-Bin-Lee; T Kunimoto, S-Ki-Lee, L Veldwijk
SSB (Expected Playing 11)- D-Geon-No; M-Jun-Jae, D Henry, S-Ki-Min, H Chul; J-Seong-Lee, S-Keun-Choi, M-Uh-Kim, K-Hun-Yeom, G Heui Kim, A Taggart
Lars Veldwijk made his move from the Spatrta Rotterdam in the Dutch League to join the Jeonbuk Motors recently. Veldwijk netted four goals from the last 15 games for his former club Sparta and will be one of the danger men in the attacking front for the Motors. His inclusion in the Dream11 Match Prediction could earn the user a decent amount of points.
Suwon Bluewings' Australian centre-forward Adam Taggart was one of the top performers for his side last season. Taggart scored 20 goals from the 33 appearances last season and can earn the user a significant number of points in the today match prediction side.
Gue-Sung-Jo bagged a goal on his debut game for the Motors in the AFC Champions League and will be hungry to add more to his tally. The recent recruit had an impressive outing last season as he scored 13 goals and had four assists from the 34 games.
Terry Antonis can also be pivotal on the attacking front for the Bluewings as he scored a goal for his side in the two appearances that he's made in the AFC Champions League.
The odds are in favour of the hosts Jeonbuk Motors with 1.70 which is 58.82% of a win.
