K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday April 23rd – Round 7)

Moving onto the football, here are our brief previews and predictions for this Sundays 2 games;

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Pohang Steelers @ 3pm

The highlight game of the day comes from the Jeonju Civil Stadium as league leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai take on 2nd placed Pohang Steelers. Jeonbuk Hyundai are still undefeated in the league so far this season, winning 4 and drawing 2 of their 6 games. However they lost on penalties in the cup to Bucheon 1995 during the week. Pohang Steelers only defeat of the season came on the opening day of the season, since then they’ve won 4 and drawn 1. However just like Jeonbuk they also lost in the cup during the week 1-0 aet to Busan I’Park
Prediction: 1 – 1
Jeonbuk Hyundai are odds on favorites, however we see this ending in a draw.

Sangju Sangmu vs. Gwangju @ 3pm

The second game involves Sangju Sangmu and Gwangju, in what might not be the most interesting game on paper but could be a dark horse. Sangju Sangmu have lost a little form recently drawing 2 and losing 1. They did at least win during the week in the cup. Gwangju also won during the week in the cup beating Yonsei University. In the league Gwangju have drawn 3 games straight.
Prediction: 2 – 1
Neither side in on-form at the moment, however we see Sangju Sangmu having the slight edge.
