Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming K League games of the weekend.

As we prepare for another matchday of the K League campaign, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 18 of the South Korean top-flight.

Don’t expect goals when Ulsan host Seongnam

Ulsan bounced back from their defeat against Jeonbuk by beating FC Seoul 2-1 last week. 

The K League leaders must host Seongnam, who have not been able to escape the table’s last place in recent weeks.

Despite their poor results, however, Seongnam have shown significant improvement in their defensive stats recently. 

They haven’t conceded more than once in any of their last four games, failing to win due to their out-of-form attacking line.

We expect Ulsan to push for a win on home soil. But Seongnam’s recent displays convince us they won’t find it easy to score against the guests.

Back Jeju to beat Gangwon

Jeju suffered their first defeat in four weeks when Daegu beat them on Tuesday. However, we expect them to bounce back from the defeat when they meet Gangwon this weekend.

Jeju have shown incredible attacking form lately, scoring twice in each of their last two games before the Daegu defeat.

We expect them to outscore their opponents, who haven’t won any of their last five matches. Having conceded seven goals in their last two outings, Gangwon will most likely struggle to resist Jeju’s attacks on Sunday.

Goals likely on both sides when Jeonbuk face Daegu

Jeonbuk have continued to chase Ulsan at the top of the table, despite the two sides’ eight-point gap. 

Following a 2-1 win over Suwon Bluewings, the title contenders must face in-form Daegu as their next opponents.

The guests have scored in all of their last 11 games, and we expect them to find the back of the net against Jeonbuk.

However, their opponents’ overall form and their superior firepower convince us they will also create enough goalscoring chances in the upcoming game.
