It’s Saturday afternoon Football K-League style!
Narrowly avoiding relegation last year. Incheon United will look to start their 2020 K-League campaign as they host Daegu.
With a new manager and the new season comes new hope but many are expecting them to be down the relegation zone again.
This doesn’t necessarily mean an easy walk in the park for Daegu.
Coming off a heartbreaking draw to Seoul to miss out on qualification to the Asian Champions League put a real dent in what was a third-place overall finish in last years K-League campaign.
This game is very much a test for both sides – Incheon who will want to prove they are in the K-League not just to make up the numbers and for Deagu wanting to build on their fantastic 2019 season.
On paper, you would think Daegu should be able to get the job done but there’s always that element of the unknown going into the first weekend of any Football season.
I’m backing both teams to put up a fight and to split the points.
Saturday night is all about the Belarusian Premier League and we’ve got a fascinating contest between Slavia and Torpedo which gets underway 10 pm AEST.
Slavia Mozyr will be desperate to get back into some winning form, but it won’t come easy as they host their bogy-side Torpedo Zhodino where they have only taken one point from their past seven games against them.
Torpedo have found Slavia to be their bunnies over the years having only conceded three goals while scoring 13 of their own.
The head to head match up makes for a very one-sided head to head matchup.
Torpedo will go into this game taking in plenty of confidence having come off a massive 5-2 win against Minsk last weekend, which was their biggest score of the season.
They now sit in second place and are three points away from taking Slutsk’s position on top of the Belarusian Premier League table.
There’s no doubting Torpedo will make the most of this opportunity and I can’t see Slavia getting in their way.
Expect Torpedo’s dominance over Slavia to continue and to come home with all three points.
