Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors vs. Daegu FC Preview
It has been two narrow victories to kick off the season fro Jeonbuk. But there will be some worries for manager Jose Morais, as his team has not dominated in either of those fixtures. A last-minute winner from substitute Lars Veldwijk won the most recent game against Busan IPark, and it will be interesting to see whether the new arrival is played from the start here.
Morais will need to figure out how his side can take more control of a game if Jeonbuk is to win the league title for an unprecedented fourth consecutive season though. The good news is that his team is still winning games, even if the performances haven’t quite been up to standard yet.
Daegu followed up its goalless draw with Incheon United on the opening day of the K League 1 season by sharing the points once again last weekend, this time with a Pohang Steelers side that looks like competing this year. Daegu went behind in the first half, but some attack-minded substitutions in the second period contributed to the goal that won the point.
Things haven’t quite clicked for Daegu either this season as yet however, so this Sunday’s fixture will be a good test of both head coach’s ability to get their players to follow a game plan. It is likely that veteran league legend Dejan Damjanovic will get a run out at some point later in the game to give Daegu a chance if needed.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors to Win-145
It is very tempting to go for the draw here, with both teams unable to stamp their authority on the opening couple of fixtures. But Jeonbuk should be able to use home advantage — even without the fans — and come up with a third straight win that will keep the pressure on Ulsan at the top of K League 1.
