Gangwon vs. Incheon United – K League 1, September 6, 2020

If last week’s results are to be taken as evidence there will be only one way this game will be going on Sunday. Gangwon provided one of the shocks of the season by beating Jeonbuk, while Incheon United lost to Sangju Sangmu.

But the bottom-placed club has been improving recently, so this fixture could be closer than many predict.

Incheon United to Win+347

There was no way that BetOnline was going to price this as anything but an odds on home win but the prices are not quite as far apart as they might have been. Incheon’s recent resurgence has obviously been taken into account – but the draw bet might still end up interesting a few.

Gangwon vs. Incheon United Match Preview

Gangwon completely deserved its upset victory over Jeonbuk last weekend – although when the Green Warriors equalized with just two minutes to go, it did look as if it might have to accept a share of the spoils. A stoppage-time winner from Kim Ji-hyun returned the advantage, however – and the three points went to the home side.

Carrying on that good form will be the main sticking point for Kim Byung-soo’s men though. Gangwon has not won two successive league games since the start of June and is probably fortunate to find itself in the top six with just four games to go until the split.

Incheon United’s dreams of finishing in the top half ended long ago – and this season is all about escaping relegation now. Two wins in a row against Daegu and Suwon lifted a lot of spirits at the club but last weekend’s defeat at the hands of Sangju Sangmu was a bitter disappointment, even if Stefan Mugosa did manage to grab his fifth of the season.

That defeat left the Black-Blues six points adrift of Suwon at the foot of the table. But with nine games still to go there is plenty still to play for. The Bluewings have been awful for the majority of the season and if Incheon can pick up a few points over the next few weeks the game between the two could be a relegation decider.

Gangwon vs. Incheon United Prediction and Pick

  • Gangwon to Win

I’m not sure that Incheon United will end up going down this season but I don’t think it will be able to get any closer to Suwon this weekend. Gangwon is too inconsistent to be absolutely sure that this will end in a home win but that excellent result against Jeonbuk last weekend must surely have some effect on Sunday.
