Goals on both ends of the pitch

JTD and Pohang Steelers are meeting for the second time in the 2021 AFC Champions League. We expect a tougher encounter in the second leg as both sides battle it out for the top spot. While Pohang Steelers won the first encounter, the South Korean side should brace for a difficult second meeting. JDT learnt some lessons in the first leg that saw them score only one goal. We expect goals on both ends as both teams have the necessary firepower upfront to fight for points.

Johor Darul Ta’zim to score first

JDT netted first in the first meeting with Pohang Steelers a few days ago. The Malaysian team was the better side in average ball possession-45% in the first half and 63% in the second half. They converted the only shot on target in the first half. We think they will open the scoring again at the second meeting.

A tense game that will end in a draw by half-time

Pohang Steelers were the better side in the first half but lost the ball to JTD in the second half. With both teams fighting for the playoffs, we expect a tense second meeting that will be deadlocked in the first half. Both teams will likely adopt a cautious approach in the first half and a draw at the break looks plausible.

Match Preview: Which Team Become Group G Leaders in the AFC Champions League?

This fixture is as important to JDT as it is to Pohang Steelers. But the question is which side will qualify for AFC Champions League knockout stages?

Johor Darul Ta’zim

Johor Darul Ta’zim lost 4-1 in the first encounter with Pohang Steelers despite having most of the ball possession. Such an unfortunate outcome leaves JTD head coach, Benjamin Mora, with some tough decisions to make before the second meeting. JDT converted their first shot on target to go ahead at the 17th minute. However, the Malaysian side lost their grip when Pohang Steelers equalized ten minutes later and added a second goal 10 minutes before the break. JDT came back stronger in the second half but could not break through the backline of the Pohang Steelers. We expect Benjamin Mora to emphasize the need for clinical finishing and to beef up his defence for a better result on 1st July 2021.

Pohang Steelers

Pohang Steelers have established a firm grip in the second spot of Group G. The South Korean outfit is three points clear of JDT and has conceded four goals in this year’s AFC Champions League. Moreover, Pohang Steelers have scored 6 goals, four more than JDT in Group G, which further provide them with a goal difference advantage before this fixture. A 4-1 victory over JDT in the first meeting should provide Di Dong Kim and his squad with the much-need confidence going into this game.
