The K League Classic moves into the 32nd round of the season, and with not much time left (2 games) in the main season (i.e. before the split) so every game is important. Also October is the final month of the main season.
K League Classic League Table
As there has now been 31 games played (so only 2 games to go in the main season) and everybody has played each other at least twice and the table to starting to take shape. So for reference here is the latest K League Classic 2014 League Table; including Games Played, Points and Goal Difference:
The league table does make for interesting reading and there are a number of tight areas. Jeonbuk Hyundai still have a 5 point lead at the top of the table with Suwon Bluewings close behind in second. Pohang are just behind them in 3rd with Jeju, Seoul and Jeonnam completing the top half. Ulsan have a slight chance of still making the top half, whilst the rest are in a relegation battle. Incheon have a little breathing room in 8th but the rest are only separated by 2 points.

Saturday October 18th 2014:
Incheon United vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai (2pm)
Saturdays first game is between 8th placed Incheon United and league leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai.
Incheon United have won 3 and drawn 1 of their previous 4 games.
Jeonbuk have won 3 in a row and are undefeated in 8.
Incheon have home advantage and are in form, but so are Jeonbuk. So we’re siding with a draw.
Prediction: 1 – 1
Jeonnam Dragons vs. FC Seoul (2pm)
Saturdays 2nd game is a clash between 6th placed Jeonnam Dragons and 5th placed FC Seoul.
Jeonnam have only won 1 in 7, and lost last weekend.
FC Seoul are also struggling with only 1 win in 5.
Neither side is on good form and therefore we’re once again siding with a draw.
Prediction: 0 – 0
Jeju United vs. Pohang Steelers (4pm)
Saturdays last game is Champions League place battle between 4th placed Jeju United and 3rd placed Pohang Steelers.
Jeju United only have one win in 6 games.
Pohang Steelers haven’t won in 5 games now.
Once again two side meet both lacking form, have Jeju are generally good at home and so we’re giving them the edge.
Prediction: 2 – 1
Saturday October 19th 2014:
Suwon Bluewings vs. Seongnam FC (2pm)
Sundays opening game is between 2nd placed Suwon Bluewings and 9th placed Seongnam FC.
Suwon Bluewings are unbeaten in 10 with 6 wins and 4 draws.
Seongnam have 2 wins form their last 3 games.
Suwon will be favorites too take home all 3 points.
Prediction: 2 – 0
Busan I’Park vs. Gyeongnam (2pm)
Sundays 2nd game is maybe the highlight of the weekend, a true relegation 6 pointer between 11th placed Busan I’Park and bottom side (12th) Gyeongnam.
Busan I’Park have 2 wins and 2 draws from their last 4 games.
Gyeongnam lost for the first time in 5 games last weekend, but that meant they replaced Busan at the bottom.
This should be an entertaining game which could go either way, so we’re predicting a draw.
Prediction: 2 – 2
Ulsan Hyundai vs. Sangju Sangmu (4pm)
Sundays final game is between 10th placed Sangju Sangmu and 8th placed Ulsan Hyundai.
Ulsan have lost their last 3 games and haven’t won in 5.
Sangju Sangmu won last weekend for the first time in about a month, but they are still in the relegation battle.
Ulsan have been pretty awful recently and so we’re siding with Sangju.
Prediction: 1 – 2
