K League Classic 2014 Round 34 November 1st

The K League Classic moves into the 34th round of the season and it’s first since the league split. From this round the top 6 and bottom 6 will play each other 1 more time. The top 6 are aiming for a top 3 Champions League place and of course the title. Whilst the bottom 6 are trying to avoid bottom spot and relegation, as well as 11th and the relegation playoff.

K League Classic League Table

As there has now been 33 games played and we’ve pasted the leagues end of season split. Here for reference here is the latest K League Classic 2014 League Table; including Games Played, Points and Goal Difference. Also there are just 5 games to go until the end of the season:

K League Classic 2014 League Table November 1st

The league table does make for interesting reading and there are a number of tight areas. To make it a little easier we’ve split the preview by top and bottom.
Championship Round: Jeonbuk have a nice 10 point lead at the top whilst the rest all still have chances of picking up a champions league place.
Relegation Round: Sangju Sangmu are currently bottom, with Gyeongnam sitting in the relegation playoff spot. Seongnam, Busan and Incheon are all still in dangerous positions. Jeonnam are basically playing for pride now.

K League Classic 2014 Round 34 Previews & Predictions

This weekends round of games are split evenly across Saturday and Sunday. Games of course now take place in the now cooler (compared to the summer) afternoons. Here are brief previews of this weekends K League Classic Round 34 Games;

Saturday November 1st 2014:

Pohang Steelers vs. Jeju United (2pm) – Championship Round

Saturdays first game is between 3rd placed Pohang Steelers and 5th Jeju United.
Pohang Steelers won last weekend for the first time in 7 games.
Jeju United have 2 wins in 5 games.
Pohang aren’t on great form, but neither are Jeju and therefore a draw seems likely.

Prediction: 1 – 1

Ulsan Hyundai vs. Suwon Bluewings (4pm) – Championship Round

Saturdays late game is between league 6th placed Ulsan Hyundai and 2nd placed Suwon Bluewings.
Ulsan have won their last 2 games, but a champions league place looks unlikely.
Suwon Bluewings lost last weekend vs. leaders Jeonbuk. Their first defeat in 12 games.
Both sides are on form, but we feel Suwon maybe the stronger.

Prediction: 1 – 2

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Seongnam FC (2pm) – Relegation Round

Saturdays relegation round game is between 7th placed Jeonnam Dragons and FA Finalists Seongnam FC (10th)
Jeonnam have only won 1 in 9, but rescued a point in the dieing moments last weekend.
Seongnam have just 1 win in 4 games, but they were tough opposition.
We feel Jeonnam should have the edge, but don’t have much to play for now.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Sunday November 2nd 2014:

FC Seoul vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai (2pm) – Championship Round

Sundays first game is between 4th placed FC Seoul and leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai.
FC Seoul have 2 wins from their last 5 league games. But are in the FA Cup final.
Jeonbuk have won 5 in a row and are undefeated in 10, in the league.
Jeonbuk will be favorites for this and the title.

Prediction: 0 – 2

Sangju Sangmu vs. Busan I’Park (2pm) – Relegation Round

Sundays 2nd game is between bottom side Sangju Sangmu and 9th placed Busan I’Park
Sangju Sangmu have lost 3 of their last 4 and are now bottom of the league.
Busan I’Park have 3 wins and 3 draws from their last 6 games.
This is a tough one to call and honestly it looks like it may end in a draw.

Prediction: 2 – 2

Incheon United vs. Gyeongnam (4pm) – Relegation Round

Sundays final game is between 8th placed Incheon United and 11th placed Gyeongnam.
Incheon United have picked up 7 points from their last 4 games.
Gyeongnam won last weekend, their first win in 4 games.
Incheon will be slight favorites, but this is a real 6 pointer and therefore it could be very interesting.

Prediction: 2 – 1

K League Challenge 2014 (Round 34)

Here are this weekends round 34 fixtures in the K League Challenge. There are a number of interesting clashes, however the top vs. bottom clash between Daejeon Citizen and Bucheon 1995 should be interesting. A win for Daejeon would all but secure the title and promotion back into the K League Classic.

K League Challenge 2014 Round 34 November 1st

Also for reference here is the current league league. As you can see it’s still very tight with so few games to go, the gap between 4th and 5th is now 1 point but a few wins could still put someone new into the playoff places. Even 8th placed Goyang Hi are still in with a shout.
