Busan IPark vs. Incheon United Betting Preview – K League 1, September 13, 2020
This a very important game in the bottom half of the table as Busan IPark looks to consolidate its position in K League 1 after being promoted last year – and Incheon United attempts to escape relegation to the second tier.
The points gap is narrowing among the bottom teams in the division now and a win for either club on Sunday would be a huge result.
Busan IPark vs. Incheon United Odds
BetOnline’s pricing of the game reflects exactly how close it is in K League 1 this season. A few weeks ago Incheon United looked dead and buried, but a few wins have completely changed the club’s outlook and now the odds for an away win look almost interesting. The draw bet may be a better choice though.
There has been just one defeat in the last four games for Busan but the results have been very varied, making it difficult to successfully predict how the Royals will get on this Sunday. The draw in Seoul last week was impressive – but that came after a loss to Suwon and a victory over a Pohang Steelers side pushing for AFC Champions League qualification.
Busan has played a spirited style of soccer this season that hasn’t always been met with a reward in the way of points. It did look as though that wouldn’t really matter as Incheon went week after week without a win. But now that this Sunday’s visiting team has started to win games, this fixture becomes all-important.
Incheon made it three wins out of four last week as a 13-minute hat-trick from Stefan Mugosa gave his team the points away at Gangwon. There is a real chance that Incheon could escape relegation now and it is usually the form team at the end of the season that is able to grind out results.
When these two met earlier in the year Incheon was coming near to the end of eight successive defeats and had yet to record a single win. The season already seemed over but the team never stopped trying and that perseverance is now beginning to pay off.
Busan vs. Incheon Prediction and Pick
A share of the points is probably no good for either side, as it will allow the teams around them the opportunity to pull away. But with two teams that are pretty evenly matched, terrified of losing another game at this stage of the season, it may be the way to go with your match betting.
