Inconsistent Sangju Sangmu host struggling Jeju United in the K-League

One team who have found consistency hard to find in the South Korean K-League of late is Sangju Sangmu who host struggling Jeju United on Sunday morning at the Jeju World Cup Stadium.

In terms of inconsistency, the home side has won just once in their last four outings in the South Korean K-League. Despite the recent inconsistent form, the home side still occupy a spot in the Championship Group. However, with teams below just a few points behind, they cannot afford a slip-up in this clash.

The visitors will probably look at the home sides recent form with envy, as they are currently tenth-place in the league table, having lost four of their last five league outings.

A leaky defence has seen Jeju concede at least two goals in four of those five defeats and contributed to the team’s lowly position in the standings.

Sangju really needs to improve their home form if they are to get out of their current rut. The home side has suffered defeat in three of their last five matches on home soil while winning just once.

Considering the visitor's recent record in the K-League, that is a record Sangju should improve this weekend. In fact, Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a low-scoring clash.

The fact that Jeju United have won just one of their last eight away games in the South Korean top-flight also supports the idea that the home side should get their season back on track this weekend.

Despite the difference in their current league positions this season, recent meetings between these two sides have been close encounters, with four of their last six meetings ending in draws. Three of those draws have been low-scoring, so at least this should be on paper a more entertaining clash than recent meetings of the two teams.
