Jeonbuk will host Yokohama in the final round of the AFC Champions League group stages to decide the winner of Group H.
Jeonbuk come into this game after a comeback win against Sydney in midweek. The win lifted them to within a point of Yokohama F. Marinos, who managed to get past Vietnamese outfit Hoang Anh Gia Lai. A win on Sunday will propel them ahead of the Japanese outfit in the final standings.

Jeonbuk Motors vs Yokohama F.Marinos Prediction
It will be a clash between the table-toppers of Group H. A win for either team will not only help them progress into the next round but also invite a lower-standard opponent. Both the outfits are veterans of the competition and have already shown their pedigree as two key contenders for the Championship.
Jeonbuk will gain a lot of confidence after breaking their jinx against Yokohama in the earlier round. However, they will have their own share of absentees, which may prove costly against a formidable Yokohama line-up.
A win for the visitors is on the cards.
