Daegu FC vs Ulsan Hyundai
Two teams who are rounding into midseason form are set to lock horns this weekend as Daegu FC host their visitors in Ulsan Hyundai in the 11th matchday of the 2019/20 K-League season.
Only four points separate these two proud clubs as they occupy two of the top-four spots at the K-League table – with Ulsan Hyundai placing second with 23 points while Daegu FC are not far behind with 19 points.
The home team will seek to win for the fourth consecutive time, whereas the visitors plan to make a winning streak of their own days after defeating Incheon United on their home pitch.
We are in for a tight match ahead especially after looking up the latest K-League 2020 odds.
Ulsan Hyundai and Daegu FC are priced at 2.42 and 2.86 respectively in the 1×2 market while chances of a draw are at 3.15.
With these two teams playing well on both ends because of their topnotch players, it is expected that fans will surely have this match marked on their calendars.
As we wait for the weekend to come, first, allow SBOBET to offer you a preview of this game.
Cesinha and Junior Negrao will put on a show
What makes this match a must-see for football fans out there is the impending showdown between Daegu FC’s Cesinha and Ulsan Hyundai’s Junior Negrao.
These two topnotch forwards are some of the league’s leading scorers with Junior Negrao scoring 12 while Cesinha has already found the back of the net seven times.
With these players on board, we can expect a lot of K-League 2020 highlights to come this weekend.
Their production might cancel each other out, so it’s going to be a matter on which team has more players that are capable of stepping up.
Daegu get their help from their youth
Save for Cesinha, who was voted as the league’s top player just last month, Lee Byunggeun has some interesting pieces that can surely help the team in one way or another.
They have the likes of Kim Dae-won and Lee Jin-hyun who are capable of providing attacking support for Cesinha and Edgar, and they’ve shown that in their recent matches to where they’ve contributed at least a goal each.
The Sky Blues have also a couple of national team standouts in Hwang Taehyun and Kim Jaewoo who have been the fulcrum of their defence, which only conceded 11 goals so far this season.
With their great mix of veterans and young players, Lee Byunggeun’s side continue to punch above their weight similar to what they did last term.
They will face another test this time in facing Ulsan Hyundai on their home floor, so this is a chance for them to show everyone what they’re made of.
Ulsan bringing in a key addition
A huge part of Ulsan’s success this season is their fortified backline, which only gave up seven goals so far this campaign – good for second overall in the league.
And lest you think that they’re already content with their roster, the Horangi have brought in a new cog which will further bolster their depth.
With his current deal with the Suwon Bluewings set to expire soon, Ulsan smartly picked up Hong Chul to add more experience.
It is said that Ulsan boss Kim Do-hoon has been chasing Hong Chul in recent years and he finally got his man. The 29-year-old full-back is expected to complement Kim Tae-hwan on the right flank, making them more dangerous overall.
Daegu FC and Ulsan Hyundai have going at each other in 24 matches so far.
Ulsan Hyundai have the significant edge with 14 wins, whereas Daegu FC won in five along with five draws.
Whenever these two face off, fireworks and tension are to be expected as exhibited in their recent fixtures.
Especially during the last time that they met back in October, five yellow cards were given away and eventually Ulsan came away with the victory with a 2-1 tally.

This match is sure to not disappoint, and I’ve had a really hard time in picking out a winner in this one.
But after careful evaluation, I may have to go with my gut to pick Ulsan Hyundai on this one, primarily because they have only lost once this season as of this writing.
Their loss came against the hands of the defending champions in Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, and one can argue that their loss came because of some bad luck.
However, Daegu FC are uniquely qualified to deal Ulsan Hyundai their second loss of this season as they have the players that can match up with their quality.
Moreover, if checking the goal count is what you’re looking for, you may want to place your wager on Over 2.50 @ 1.75 given that they have two of the top scorers in the league.
