Sunday in the K League Classic features all 4 sides from the AFC Champions League, with 3 of the 4 looking to kick-start their seasons after disappointing ACL campaigns. The standout games are the clashes between Sangju Sangmu & FC Seoul as well as the Hyundai derby between Ulsan & Jeonbuk.

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 Previews & Predictions (Sunday May 14th – Round 11)

Moving onto the days action, here are our brief previews and predictions for this Sundays 4 games;

Sangju Sangmu vs. FC Seoul @ 3pm

The first game of the day is also our highlight game as Sangju Sangmu host FC Seoul. Sangju Sangmu have hit a rocky patch losing their last two games and dropping into the bottom half. FC Seoul have also been a little off, winning 2 and drawing 2 of their last 4 league games. However a weaken Seoul beat Urawa Reds in the ACL during the week.
Prediction:  1 – 2
This could be a very interesting game, one that we see Seoul edging.

This is our highlight game of the day and therefore we’ll be covering it in extra detail via our Twitter Page.

Ulsan Hyundai vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai @ 3pm

The next game is the 55th Hyundai Derby between Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonnam Hyundai. Ulsan have recently found some league form winning 3 games straight, and they also won during the week against Brisbane in the ACL. Jeonbuk Hyundai won for the first time in 3 games last weekend beating Daegu and are level on points with leaders Jeju United.
Prediction:  1 – 1
This derby match is always a close one, and therefore we’re siding with a draw.

Pohang Steelers vs. Jeju United @ 3pm

The third and final 3 o’clock kick off comes from the Steelyard as Pohang Steelers host league leaders Jeju United. Pohang Steelers ended a losing run of 3 games by beating FC Seoul despite being 2 goals down. Leaders Jeju United are also the only K League side to progress from the ACL group stages. They’ve scored 8 goals in their last 2 league games beating Jeonbuk and Sangju.
Prediction:  1 – 2
Jeju have been the most impressive side so far this season, it might not be an easy win but we do see them taking the 3 points.

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Suwon Bluewings @ 5pm

The final Sunday afternoon game is between two mid-table sides as Jeonnam Dragons host Suwon Bluewings. Jeonnam have won 4 from 5 and smashed Gwangju last weekend 5-0. Suwon Bluewings were on a 3 game winning run, but lost to in-form Ulsan last Saturday.
Prediction:  2 – 1
Due to Suwon’s ACL exploits we feel they maybe a little tired and therefore we’re edging toward a Jeonnam victory.

Here are predictions for this Saturday’s K League Challenge games;

Busan I’Park vs. Asan Mugunghwa @ 3pm

Prediction: 1 – 1
Two sides that seem evenly matched and cannot really afford to drop points to each other. So we’re siding with a draw.

Bucheon 1995 vs. Daejeon Citizen @ 3pm

Prediction: 2 – 1
Bucheon maybe on inconsistent form, but Daejeon have lost 4 on the bounce and therefore Bucheon seem favorites for the win.
