Goals on both sides of the pitch
While we expect a tense fixture in this AFC Champions League opener, we think both sides have the quality to bag a good result on matchday. Both teams have reached this far by merit. And because the match will be played in Bangkok, Thailand, Ratchaburi will bank on familiarity to score goals on matchday. Pohang Steelers are equally a strong side and should bank on their quality to get at least a point in this fixture.
Given the quality both teams bring to this fixture, we expect a tense game on day one of the AFC Champions League. These teams have not met in recent memory and should adopt a cautious approach not to lose their first game in Group G. A point may not be good enough for either side but should boost the confidence of both squads in this competition. While we back goals on both ends, we also think this fixture will end with both teams sharing the spoils.
Under 2.5: Yes
We expect few goals in this match. This fixture kicks off the competition and should breed a tense atmosphere on matchday. Pohang Steelers may have lost only one match in the last nine games in all competitions, but a low scoreline that has been witnessed in seven of those fixtures should continue in this game. There have been four draws in the last nine games, all of which had fewer than three goals. Two victories for Pohang Steelers within that duration had a scoreline of 1-0. Their only 1-0 loss in the last nine games was to Ulsan Hyundai. Ratchaburi is equally a defensive side despite failing to register a win in the last three matches. Ratchaburi equally has 4 draws in the last nine fixtures, all of which had fewer than three goals.
Match Preview: Pohang Steelers Kick off their AFC Champions League Campaign Against Ratchaburi Mitr Phol
In our game preview below, find out what we think about these teams before this fixture kicks-off on 22nd June 2021
Pohang Steelers come into this match with back to back victories. They defeated Chungnam Asan FC 3-1 in round 4 South Korea’s FA Cup before bagging another victory against Gwangju FC in the K-League 1 fixture. They last played on 30th May and should come into this fixture with a lot of determination. Enough rest should, therefore, get Pohang Steelers to a good start in the first match of the AFC Champions League.
Ratchaburi has the advantage of familiarity in this fixture because the match will be played in Thailand. They come into this fixture with a 2-2 draw against Trat FC in the Thai League 1 lback in late March before losing 2-1 to True Bangkok United in early April. More than two months of rest should, therefore, get the Ratchaburi squad all fired up for this fixture.
