No K League Classic this weekend due to the international break so the K League Challenge will be the focus. The league is quickly moving on towards the end of the conclusion of the 2016 season. This is round 40 and so sides only have either 4 or 5 games still to play this season. This round includes a number of interesting encounters, however for us the standout game is between league leaders Ansan Mugunghwa & 5th placed Busan I’Park. Ansan cannot win promotion this season, but can still take the title and hurt Busan’s push for the final playoff place.

K League Challenge 2016 League Table Update


The league table is looking close as we enter the final stages of the 2016 season. Ansan Mugunghwa still lead the way with a 4 point lead over Daegu in 2nd. Bucheon 1995 and Gangwon are very close behind and complete the official playoff places. 5th placed Busan I’Park will also enter the playoffs as long as Ansan Mugunghwa finish 4th or better. The 6th to 8th placed sides (Busan, Daejeon & Gyeongnam) still have narrow playoff chances but they’ll need to good run of form. At the other end of the table, Goyang and Chungju are both well adrift of the rest now. But fortunately for them there is no relegation this season.
