It all comes down to this in the 2018 Korean FA Cup. Daegu host Ulsan Hyundai in the second leg, and they’ll start as surprise favorites after winning 2-1 on Wednesday evening. This game is also the final one at the Daegu Stadium before they move to their new ground next year. Here is a quick preview and prediction for the 2nd leg;

Daegu FC v Ulsan Hyundai – Korean FA Cup Final 2nd Leg (Preview / Prediction)

Daegu FC v Ulsan Hyundai
(Saturday December 8th – 1.30pm Kick Off)

The first leg was surprisingly open at times with best sides having their moments. Daegu found a late winner via an Edgar header to give them a big advantage heading into this 2nd leg of the final. Daegu are now riding a three game winning streak and should be favorites to lift the cup. However Ulsan aren’t going to just roll over, so they’ll come into this game ready for a battle. Something extra to note, the weather on Saturday will be below freezing with possible snow. It’s unlikely the game will be postponed, but the weather will be a factor.

So I see this being another close game, and one that could be affected by the weather. In the end I see Daegu winning the game and the cup in a similar fashion to their win on Wednesday evening.

Prediction: Daegu FC 2-1 (4-2 agg) Ulsan Hyundai
