Daejeon Korail form and stats

Daejeon Korail are yet to win a home game, having collected 2 points from their first two National League games here at Daejeon Hanbat Stadium. Two draws in a row at home now for Daejeon Korail.

Jung Sung-Min was the last player to score a league goal for Daejeon and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Daejeon Korail haven't scored in 212 minutes. The Daejeon goalkeeper Hyung-Geun Lim is looking to record 90 more "clean sheet" minutes as his team have now played 180 minutes without conceding a goal in the National League.

A draw after 90 minutes last time out for Daejeon, who played 0-0 against Gimhae City. That match was also played at this venue (Daejeon Hanbat Stadium). Preceding that match was a FA Cup defeat to Gyeongnam (0-1).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Daejeon have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found four matches with the results: Won four, drawn zero and lost zero.

Daejeon Korail has scored 0 goals so far and conceded 0 goals from 2 home games. These are numbers from the league only.

Mokpo City form and stats

Mokpo City are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the National League, having played 2 games and collected 3 points (1 win, 0 draws and 1 loss).

There might be some fixture complaints from Mokpo as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the National League match against Gyeongju HNP (0-2). That result followed a home victory 1-0 versus Gimpo in the FA Cup.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Mokpo City playing away and similar expectations, we found four relevant matches. Results were two Mokpo City wins, one draw and one defeat.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The FA Cup trip to Gyeongnam.

It's early days yet, but Mokpo City has scored 1 and conceded 2 goals from their travels in the league so far (2 games).

Head 2 Head

As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's one Daejeon Korail victory, five draws and four Mokpo City wins. Over/under statistics; seven of these games ended with three goals or more, three matches with two goals or less.
