Wednesday August 6th 2014:

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Suwon Bluewings (7pm)

This Wednesdays first game is a top of the table clash between Jeonbuk Hyundai (1st) and Suwon Bluewings (3rd).
Jeonbuk are unbeaten in 7 games, and easily beat Jeonnam at the weekend.
Suwon have won 4 of their last 5 games.
Both sides are on top form and this should be a great game, however a draw looks the likely outcome.

Prediction: 1 – 1

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Incheon United (7pm)

Wednesdays 2nd game in between 5th placed Jeonnam Dragons and 11th placed Incheon United.
Jeonnam have lost their last 2, but won the 3 games before those.
Incheon United won for only the second time this season at the weekend and have only lost 1 in 5.
This will be very close, but sadly once again it looks like a draw.

Prediction: 1 – 1

Jeju United vs. Sangju Sangmu (7pm)

Wednesdays third game is between in form Jeju United (4th) and out of form Sangju Sangmu (9th).
Jeju United have maybe the best form in the K League, as they are unbeaten in 10 games.
Sangju Sangmu have lost 3 and drawn 1 of their last 4 games.
Jeju will go into this one favorites.

Prediction: 2 – 0

Gyeongnam vs. Busan I’Park (7.30pm)

Wednesdays first 7.30 kick off is a relegation 6 pointer between 12th placed Gyeongnam and 10th placed Busan I’Park.
Gyeongnam have lost 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games, and haven’t won since the end of the March.
Busan I’Park haven’t won in 9 games and have lost 3 of their last 5 games.
Both sides need the win but neither has the form to do it, however we feel Gyeongnam might edge it.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Pohang Steelers vs. Seongnam FC (7.30pm)

Wednesdays 2nd 7.30 kick off is between 2nd placed Pohang Steelers and 8th placed Seongnam FC.
Pohang Steelers have now not won in 2 games, but are the league highest goalscorers.
Seongnam have found a little form recently but are the leagues lowest goalscorers.
Pohang will go into this one favorites, but it won’t be a walkover.

Prediction: 1 – 0

FC Seoul vs. Ulsan Hyundai (7.30pm)

The final game of this midweek round is between 7th placed FC Seoul and 6th placed Ulsan Hyundai. Sides who are only 2 points apart.
FC Seoul are unbeaten in their last 8 games (both league and cup) and still have a chance of making the top half.
Ulsan only have 1 win their last 5 games, and lost to lowly Incheon United at the weekend.
This one looks like it’s Seoul’s to lose.

Prediction: 3 – 1
