Following a giant midweek round and a big Saturday round of games, Sunday is a little small and more focused with 2 games in each division. The standout game in the Classic in the clash between 2 struggling sides Gangwon and Incheon United. The stadium maybe a little empty on the day but the game should be interesting.

A quick reminder that this season we’re going to the covering each match day separately (the last few seasons it’s been each round). Making the posts a little shorter and focused on a day. Video Highlights, Goal Updates and more via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

K League Classic 2017 League Table Update

After 9 games the league table has started to take shape. Jeju United returned to the top during the week, level on points with Jeonbuk Hyundai. 3rd placed FC Seoul down to 7th placed Pohang Steelers are separated by only 2 points.

K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday May 7th – Round 10)

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

Gangwon vs. Incheon United @ 3pm

The highlight game of the day comes from the Alpensia Ski Jumping Stadium home of Gangwon FC. Gangwon have only won once in their last 4 games and twice all season, both of those were away from home. Bottom side Incheon United have had yet another slow start to a K League season and won for the first season on Wednesday. Their away form however is a little better than their home.
Prediction:  2 – 2
Both sides have shown hints of form but neither has set the league alight yet this season. We see this being a good game, but ultimately a draw.
+Game of Day+ This is our highlight game of the day and therefore we’ll be covering it in extra detail via our Twitter Page.

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Gwangju @ 3pm

In the second game of the day 9th placed Jeonnam Dragons host 8th placed Gwangju. These sides are only separated by a single point and a win for either would push them closer to the mid-table battle. Jeonnam Dragons have won 3 from 4, losing a tight game during the week to FC Seoul. Gwangju have once won once in 5 games, however have a strong defensive line, their issue is a lack of goals.
Prediction:  1 – 0
Close game on paper but one we see Jeonnam edging.

K League Challenge 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday May 7th – Round 11)

Here are brief previews and predictions for this Sunday’s K League Challenge games;

Suwon FC vs. Seongnam FC @ 3pm

The first of Saturdays games features Suwon FC who are just outside of the playoff places and bottom side Seongnam FC. Suwon FC have only won 1 of their last 5 league games and lost on Wednesday against Asan Mugunghwa. Seongnam FC have been poor all season despite retaining  a good number of their Classic squad players. They look poor during the week losing against Seoul E-Land.
Prediction: 2 – 1
Both sides are lacking form and confidence and so this might be a small and cagey game. One which we see going to Suwon.
+Game of Day+
This is our highlight game of the day and therefore we’ll be covering it in extra detail via our Twitter Page

Daejeon Citizen vs. Gyeongnam @ 5pm

In the late Sunday game Daejeon Citizen host league leaders Gyeongnam. Daejeon Citizen have had a disappointing start to the season only winning once in 10 games. Their current form highlights this as they’ve lost 3 games straight. Gyeongnam on the other hand have looked impressive, unbeaten in 10 games winning 7.
Prediction: 1 – 3
Gyeongnam will start as obvious favorites by we can see Daejeon at least sneaking a goal.
