Football Prediction of the Day Jeonbuk vs Suwon
In the K League, the discipline leaves much to be desired and many warnings are usually given.
Only in the last direct meeting 4 yellow and two red cards were awarded, and in the direct meeting in June 2019 8 yellow cards were shown!
There have always been tense duels between Jeonbuk and Suwan, so I have great confidence in the tip I propose: over 3.5 yellow cards.
The hosts approach this game from the position of champions of South Korea and aim for victory, the guests have visibly strengthened before the start of the season and they certainly intend to start the new edition of the championship with the right. I specify that this is not the first official match for the two teams in 2020.
Both have two games in the AFC Champions League, matches in which the referees had a lot of work.
In 3 of the 4 games the quota of the 3.5 yellow cards was much exceeded!
