K League Challenge 2016 Round 9 Predictions
Sunday May 8th 2016:
Busan I’Park vs. FC Anyang (1.30pm)
Busan have lost 3 of their last 4 games and now sit just below mid table. FC Anyang are one place above them on goal difference. They’re also struggling at the moment. This one looks like a draw.
Prediction: 1 – 1
Goyang Zaicro vs. Bucheon 1995 (2pm)
Goyang picked up their first win of the season on Children’s Day thanks to an injury time penalty. Bucheon are currently in the playoffs with 3 wins from their last 4 games. Bucheon will be favorites to win here.
Prediction: 0 – 2
Daejeon Citizen vs. Gangwon (2pm)
Have improved since their awful start to the season, with 2 wins and a draw from their last 3 games. Gangwon have won 5 on the bounce and are now within touching distance leaders Ansan. This will be close but we see Gangwon edging this one.
Prediction: 1 – 2
Gyeongnam vs. Seoul E-Land (2pm)
Bottom side Gyeongnam have lost their last two games, however they’re only bottom due to a 10 point deduction from bribery. Seoul E-Land have also lost their last 2 games and have fallen out of the playoff places. A close game on paper and a draw seem the most likely outcome.
Prediction: 1 – 1
Ansan Mugunghwa vs. Daegu (3pm)
Ansan lost for just the second time this season on Children’s Day against a strong Bucheon 1995. However they’re still top of the league. Daegu are unbeaten this season and have the best defensive record in the league. This game could be anyway, however Ansan at home should have the edge.
Prediction: 1 – 0
