Tobias Gourlay's dipping into the K League as FC Seoul travel to the Pohang Steelers

"The Seoul Dragons have delivered BTTS in 15/20 away games"

Back Both Teams To Score @ [1.96] in Pohang Steelers v FC Seoul

Pohang Steelers v FC Seoul
Friday 11:30

Two results to catch up on from yesterday. First, BATE Borisov went to Dinamo Brest in Belarus and won 3-1 to land our bet on the away win. Estonia was much less fun, as FC Flora and Tammeka left us well short of our goals target with a goalless draw.

Today, we're looking ahead to a Friday-morning game in Korea. Pohang Steelers finished fourth in the K League last season and recently won their first home game of the new campaign 2-0. However, we're not sure they'll have everything their own way when they entertain FC Seoul, who finished one place above them last season.

Despite their decent finish in the 12-team league last season, the Steelers conceded at least once in 13/19 appearances at the Pohang Steel Yard. Backing Both Teams To Score was the right thing to do in 12/19 of those games.

Visiting FC Seoul are outsiders for this game, but have scored on 17/20 road trips since the start of last term. The Seoul Dragons have delivered BTTS in 15/20 of those matches and that's a strong enough trend to warrant a bet on BTTS at close to even money in this one.
