The K League Classic moves into Sunday and it’s headlined by the “Super Match” between Suwon Bluewings and FC Seoul. The Super Match is one of the highlight games of the season, and with both sides struggling in mid-table a win is much needed by both sides. Gangwon also take on Jeju and Incheon host Sangju a little later in the evening.

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 June 18th – Round 14)

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

Suwon Bluewings vs. FC Seoul @ 6pm

The first game of the day is the Super Match between Suwon Bluewings and FC Seoul. Suwon Bluewings are currently sitting in 6th having recovered from a poor start to the season. Before the international break they’d won 3 from 5. 7th placed FC Seoul have lost their early season form, and recently have gone on a 4 game winless run.
Prediction:  1 – 0
The Super Match is always well attended a played at a strong pace. We see Suwon coming out on top.

Gangwon vs. Jeju United @ 7pm

The second game of the day is between Gangwon and 2nd placed Jeju United. Gangwon have looked solid since returning to the Classic this season, and are currently on a 4 game winning run. However Jeju United are a strong side who can score for fun. They’ve won 3 from 4 coming into this game.
Prediction:  1 – 2
Although a draw seems the likely outcome, we’re siding with a surprise away win for Jeju.

Incheon United vs. Sangju Sangmu @ 7pm

The the final game on Sunday is a bottom of the half clash between two of the leagues out-of-form sides Incheon United and Sangju Sangmu. Incheon United have picked up just one win all season (which was against Sangju), and are 3 points adrift at the bottom. Despite a strong start to the season Sangju Sangmu have fallen like a brick recently gaining just 1 point from their last 5 games.
Prediction:  2 – 2
Both sides will have benefited from the break, but we see this ending in an entertaining draw.
