Ulsan Hyundai vs. Pohang Steelers (2pm)

In Saturdays early game the local derby of the day takes place as South East rivals Ulsan and Pohang square-off. Ulsan Hyundai have lost three of their last 4 league games, but won in the cup during the week. Pohang Steelers have won their last 2 games moving them upto 5th place.

Seongnam FC have had a great start to the season and have only lost once in their 9 games. They hammered Ulsan on the road last time out as well. FC Seoul lost their last league game and needed extra time to beat Daegu in the cup during the week. In will be close but we see Seongnam edging a tired Seoul.
Prediction: 2 – 1

Suwon City FC vs. Suwon Bluewings (5pm)

This is a game people have been looking forward too ever since Suwon City won their place in the K League Classic via the playoffs at the end of last season. It’s already basically a sellout, with special scarfs and other products being sold to celebrated the day.
On the field both sides have been poor recently, both have only won 1 game each this season and sit in the bottom half of the table. Suwon City also lost in the cup during the week on penalties against Daejeon, whilst the Bluewings narrowly beat Gyeongju HNP.
This will be a competitive, entertaining game played in a great derby atmosphere. However we see it ending in a draw.
Prediction: 1 – 1

They beat K3 League side Chungju City in the cup during the week which might help their confidence. A close game on paper, however we see Sangju maybe edging it.
Prediction: 2 – 0
