FC Seoul vs. Incheon United Betting Preview – K League 1, October 31, 2020

| October 29, 2020 9:00 am PDT

So, it has come down to this. Incheon United will make the short trip into the capital city in an attempt to achieve the result that will keep it in K League 1 for another year.

FC Seoul has nothing really to play for but will probably still put on a good show in the Gyeongin derby.

FC Seoul to Win +153
The Draw +210
Incheon United to Win +156

BetOnline has taken Incheon United’s situation into account and made this game almost too tight to call. FC Seoul should be competitive, but it remains to be seen how long that will continue if Incheon United get an early goal or two. The odds for the draw or the away win are probably the ones to choose from here.

Team Assessments

FC Seoul will round off what has been a very disappointing season with a derby game against an Incheon United side fighting for its life. Professional pride should mean that the home team does put on a bit of a show – and there could be some perverse pleasure taken in ruining Incheon’s day.

A draw with Gangwon last weekend means that the capital city club cannot finish any higher than eighth, but the damage had already been done when it was unable to finish in the top half at the split. Everyone involved at the club will now be putting everything into the Champions League campaign.

If this game ultimately means nothing to FC Seoul, the situation is completely different for the Blue Black. It looked as though relegation was an absolute certainty earlier in the season when Incheon United failed to win a single one of its first 15 games. But now the great escape has lived on until the final game of the campaign.

It had looked as though everything had come to a premature end last week when Incheon United was a goal down to Busan with 15 minutes to play. But two goals in two minutes swung the game around completely – and now give the club an incredible final chance to preserve its K League 1 status.

  • The Draw
    +210

FC Seoul probably reserves most of its dislike and rivalry for Suwon, but Incheon is close enough for there to be some needle. But I’m not sure whether the latter’s position in K League 1 will bother the fans too much either way.

Incheon will be doing everything it can to stay up of course, but I would not be surprised if a draw here meant that the players will end up anxiously waiting to hear the result of the game between Seongnam and Busan.
