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 19 of the South Korean top-flight.

Goals likely on both sides when Jeju host FC Seoul

Jeju suffered an unexpected 4-2 defeat last week that exposed their defensive issues once again.

The third-place side hope to get back to winning ways after three weeks when they meet FC Seoul this weekend.

Based on Jeju’s excellent attacking consistency this season, we expect them to find the back of the net against Seoul. However, the guests’ recent goalscoring stats convince us that they will also have enough chances to score on Saturday.

Don’t expect goals when Daegu take on Suwon FC

Daegu continued their impressive run of 15 unbeaten games across all competitions when they defeated Pohang Steelers 3-2 in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

They will return to K-League to face Suwon FC, who come into the game on the back of a 3-0 win in the Suwon derby. 

Both sides have scored three goals in their last outings, but we don’t expect them to have many goalscoring opportunities when they face each other.

Daegu’s incredible defensive stats is a big reason behind our consensus. We expect them to take a conservative approach to the game due to their opponents’ brilliant form. 

On the other hand, Suwon’s attacking stats don’t convince us that they can overwhelm their hosts on Sunday.

Expect goals on both sides when Pohang Steelers face Ulsan Hyundai 

Ulsan remained winless for the second consecutive match when Seongnam held them to a goalless draw last week.  

The league leaders must face Pohang Steelers in their next match as they feel more pressure from second-placed Jeonbuk.

We expect Ulsan to push for a win in the upcoming match, and Pohang’s poor defensive form convinces us they can find the back of the net in the upcoming match.

However, Ulsan’s lack of defensive consistency suggests they might give away too many opportunities in the process.
