Both teams to score

We're backing both teams not to score in what we think will be a tight and cagey affair. In  Osaka's last five league games, there hasn't been one instance where both teams have scored. In the group stages, Cerezo saw both teams score only twice out of the six possible games. For Pohang, three of their last 5 have seen both teams score but in the group stage of the competition, this happened only twice.

Under 2.5 goals

With the game expecting to be tight especially in a knockout game like this, we are anticipating both teams starting slowly and the goal count to be under 2.5. Pohang in their last four matches has seen the goal count rise above 2.5 only once. Expect Pohang to look to frustrate their opponents and keep it being a low-scoring game.

Cerezo Osaka to win

Despite defeat in their last match, Cerezo arrives at today's match in better form than Pohang. Having won five of their last eight matches in all competitions. Pohang has only recorded two wins from their last eight and will need to find a spark if they are to claim victory. Although it will be tight and cagey, we expect Cerezo to just edge it.

Match Preview for Cerezo Osaka vs Pohang Steelers

Cerezo Osaka will be looking to reach the quarter-finals of the AFC Champions League for the first time since 2011. The Japanese side is struggling in this year's J League finding themselves in 12th position. Looking to try and turn their season around, a lot will ride on how they fare in this competition. Cerezo only conceded two goals in Group J as they ran out comfortable group winners. They will see this as a golden opportunity to progress.

Pohang Steelers head into this match in 5th place in the K League 1, well in the hunt for a top 3 finish. The Steelers are three times winners of the competition with their last victory coming back in 2009. Since then they have found things more difficult only making the quarter-finals twice in 2010 and 2014. The Korean side has a great record in this competition, but current form has to be a worry as they have only won two of their last eight in all competitions.
