Saturday March 7th 2015:

Incheon United vs. Gwangju (2pm)

Saturdays is game features Incheon United hosting playoff winners Gwangju.
Incheon United had a 2014 to forget, but a change of manager and a fresh looking squad might improve their fortunes.
Gwangju pulled off a shock playoff run to win promotion back to the Classic after 2 seasons away.
We see a close game, but Incheon should be able to edge it.

Prediction: 2 – 1

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Seongnam FC (3pm)

Saturdays 2nd game is a Korean Super Cup of sorts as League Champions Jeonbuk Hyundai host FA Cup winners Seongnam FC.
Jeonbuk Hyundai come into this game as reigning champions and won 4-1 in the Asian Champions League during the week.
Seongnam FC were last years surprise FA Cup winners and pulled off an impressive win over Gamba Osaka in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Jeonbuk with a favorites to win this one, but it won’t be a landslide.

Prediction: 2 – 0

Busan I’Park vs. Daejeon Citizen (4pm)

Saturdays late game features Busan I’Park and K League Challenge champions Daejeon Citizen.
Busan I’Park seem similar to last season where they finished mid table.
Daejeon Citizen walked the K League Challenge and return to the K League Classic after just 1 season away.
A draw would seem to be the most likely outcome here.

Prediction: 1 – 1

Sunday March 8th 2015:

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Jeju United (2pm)

Sundays first game features Jeonnam Dragons and Jeju United.
Jeonnam Dragons finished last season 7th and had a pretty awful run in.
Jeju United finished last season 5th and will be hoping to better that this season.
This is a tricky one to call, but we see an entertaining score draw.

Prediction: 2 – 2

Suwon Bluewings vs. Pohang Steelers (2pm)

Sundays second game features two of the leagues bigger sides as Suwon Bluewings host 2013 champions Pohang Steelers.
Suwon Bluewings finished last season runners up, but lost in the Champions League on Wednesday in Beijing.
Pohang Steelers failed to mount a successful defense of their title last season, but look to have a strong squad this year.
Another close game on paper, and once again we see this as a draw.

Prediction: 1 – 1

Ulsan Hyundai vs. FC Seoul (4pm)

Sundays late game features Ulsan Hyundai and FC Seoul.
Ulsan Hyundai finished last season poorly ending in 6th place.
FC Seoul on the other hand finished strongly claiming the final AFC Champions League spot. They beat Kashima Antlers 1-0 on Wednesday.
