K League Playoff 2015 2nd Leg Preview and Prediction
When: Saturday December 5th 2015 @ 4pm
Where: Busan Gudeok Stadium
Who: Busan I’Park (11th Placed K League Classic Side) vs. Suwon City FC (K League Challenge Playoff Winners)
1st Leg Result: Suwon City 1 – 0 Busan I’Park
Suwon come into this game with a slight advantage from the 1st leg. Both sides have players suspended; from Suwon key defender Ha-Ram Lim, whilst Busan will be missing midfielder Dong-Hyun Hong.
Suwon come into the game undefeated in 6 with 4 of those wins. Busan on the other hand haven’t won since July and haven’t scored twice in a game since December.
However Busan have been giving away tickets to drum up support and do have home advantage here (although not their normal home).
This will be a close game and we see it ending in a draw, therefore giving Suwon City promotion to the 2016 K League Classic.
Prediction: Busan I’Park 1 – 1 Suwon City FC
