Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors vs Suwon Bluewings Preview, prediction and odds

Prediction and odds for the game: Jeonbuk (3/4) v Suwon Bluewings (7/2)

We are backing the home win

When: Friday 8th May 2020, Kick-off 11 AM

Where: The Jeonju World Cup Stadium

On Saturday morning, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors host Suwon Bluewings, as the home side kick-off their title defence in the South Korean K-League.


The home side won the title last season, which was their fifth league title in six campaigns. They have been something of a dominant force in the South Korean top-flight in recent seasons. Although Jeonbuk have been strong in the league in recent seasons, they only claimed the title by goal difference, beating Ulsan to the crown.

Jeonbuk finished last season on an eight-game unbeaten run, but four finish in draws. The home side has in fact lost just once in their previous 27 matches in the K-League. Towards the end of last season, their league games were tight, low-scoring affairs with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last nine league encounters.

The reigning champions have lost just once in their last 18 home games in the South Korean top-flight. They are currently also on a run of four home matches unbeaten in the K-League, having recorded three wins and a draw.

Jeonbuk have a very good recent record against the visitors, as they are unbeaten in six meetings, having recorded four victories in the process.

Suwon Bluewings

Last season was a mixture of success and failure for the visitors. They finished a disappointing eighth-place in the K-League table. However, on the flip-side Suwon won the South Korean FA Cup to book a place in the AFC Champions League. No doubt they will be hoping to retain the trophy but will be looking for an improved performance in the league this season.

The visitors have proven relatively successful in their 25 years history, winning the K-League on four occasions, while also finishing as runners-up the same number of times. Their FA Cup victory was also their fourth triumph in that competition.

The Bluewings finished their K-League campaign in an inconsistent fashion last season. However, they won just two of their last ten league games, which contributed to their poor league position last season. The visitors also finished the campaign with one away win in their last six matches on their travels in the K-League. Although their recent away matches in the league have not been that high-scoring, nine of their last ten matches on the road have produced over 1.5 goals.


The home team will be confident of opening their K-League campaign with a victory. We are backing Jose Morais’ team to come out on top in this clash in a high-scoring encounter, so we are also backing the over 2.5 goals scored.

Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 3/4 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 19/20. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
