Prediction of Johor Darul Ta'zim vs Pohang Steelers 1 July 2021

AsiaDespatch.orgJohor Darul Ta’zim will face Pohang Steelers in the 3rd round of the AFC Champions League zone Group G 2020/21, Thursday (1/7/21) at Rajamangala National Stadium. The rise of Johor Darul Ta’zim’s strength in the second round made them able to reach the position they needed. While the Pohang Steelers themselves did not want to miss even though in the second round they had to lose.

When Nagoya Grampus is certain to be able to win the match against Ratchaburi, then it is certain that Nagoya will strengthen his position. At first the difference between Nagoya Grampus and Johor Darul Ta’zim was only 3 points adrift.

Where previously Nagoya Grampus had 6 points while Johor Darul Ta’zim still had 3 points. So if they wanted to strengthen the second position, Johor Darul Ta’zim should no longer be able to accept defeat, let alone draw.

Indeed, between Johor Darul Ta’zim and his opponent this time, Pohang Steelers, have the same points. Because the different aggregates make Johor Darul Ta’zim slightly advantaged.

Therefore, it is not wrong if Johor Darul Ta’zim now occupies the second position. Johor Darul Ta’zim itself is still trying to improve its position by seeking victory.

Although it seems that when facing the Pohang Steelers their plans are still vague. Because his opponent this time was very different from his opponent in the second round.


Unfortunately Johor Darul Ta’zim had to drop points in the first half against Nagoya Grampus 1-0. They also did not seem to be able to do better when they were able to win the match 1-0 against Ratchaburi.

It seems that Johor Darul Ta’zim is still quite lucky because they are not as bad as the Pohang Steelers. Efforts to get the victory did not seem as smooth as imagined.

Moreover, the Pohang Steelers are a pretty strong team. They were able to do better than Johor Darul Ta’zim when facing Ratchaburi.

But at least Johor Darul Ta’zim is still in a quite favorable position. So they should only need to maintain consistency.

They should not have fallen asleep with the victory in the second round. That victory alone they get with difficulty.

If you want to win this match, Benjamin Mora as a coach must find a way to change his strategy. Because so far Benjamin Mora only ordered Johor Darul Ta’zim to survive.

Johor Darul Ta’zim himself prefers to use a target man formation supported by five central midfielders. In a sense they put one striker with four attacking midfielders and one defensive midfielder.

This strategy is intended to counterattack effectively. However, it seems that when facing a team that has a maximum attack, Johor Darul Ta’zim will have a little trouble. It happened when they were beaten 1-0 by Nagoya Grampus.

  • Changing the Match Scheme

The second-half defeat by Nagoya Grampus dealt a crushing blow to the Pohang Steelers. It seems that they are conducting a massive evaluation where they are actually relying on the emotional side more than skills.

It happened when they lost against Nagoya. When facing Nagoya, Pohang Steelers should not have conceded three goals.

Unfortunately they made a misstep that got one of their players out. Playing too rough in fact makes them lose. This is something that needs to be improved to get better results in the future.
