Despite the U20 World Cup continuing this weekend, the K League doesn’t stop and Saturday even features 3 games in the Classic. This is the final weekend before a 2 week break for International Fixtures and the U20 World Cup Final. The standout game is between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Suwon Bluewings, an important top half clash.

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 (Saturday May 27th – Round 13)

Moving onto the days action, here are our brief previews and predictions for this Saturdays 3 games;

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Suwon Bluewings @ 4pm

The first game of the day is between two K League giants, Jeonbuk Hyundai and Suwon Bluewings. Jeonbuk have drawn twice in recent weeks, with only 1 win in 5. Suwon Bluewings on the other hand have won 4 in 5.
Prediction:  2 – 1
Close game, that we see ending in a draw.

Pohang Steelers vs. Gangwon @ 6pm

The 2nd game of the day features two of the leagues in form sides as Pohang Steelers host Gangwon. Both sides are on 3 game winning runs. Also Pohang had only drawn once all season.
Prediction:  2 – 1
Despite both sides being in-form, we feel Pohang at home will have the edge.

FC Seoul vs. Ulsan Hyundai @ 7pm

The the final game on Saturday comes from the Seoul World Cup Stadium and is between FC Seoul and Ulsan Hyundai. Both sides had disappointing ACL campaigns and will now be focusing on the league. FC Seoul have only won once in 5 games, whilst Ulsan have won 4 from 5.
Prediction:  1 – 2
Tight game on paper, but form wise one Ulsan could edge.

Gwangju vs. Jeju United – POSTPONED
