K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Saturday June 24th – Round 16)

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

Jeju United vs. Pohang Steelers @ 6pm

The first game of the day is a top of the table clash between Jeju United and Pohang Steelers. Jeju United have lost both games since return after the international break, during which they crashed out of the ACL. Pohang Steelers on the other hand at least won during the week against Incheon, however the 3-0 scoreline was a little flattering.
Prediction:  1 – 1
Early odds have Jeju as clear favorites, but we see this ending all-square.

Gwangju vs. Jeonnam Dragons @ 7pm

The second game of the day is a bottom of the table encounter between Gwangju and Jeonnam Dragons. Gwangju haven’t won in 6 games and have only scored 9 goals all season in the league. Jeonnam Dragons drew for the first time this season during the week, either win big or lose heavily.
Prediction:  0 – 1
Jeonnam seem to find something extra when playing against fellow league stragglers.

Ulsan Hyundai vs. Incheon United @ 7pm

The the final game on Saturday is between two sides at opposite ends of the table, 2nd placed Ulsan Hyundai and bottom side Incheon United. Ulsan have won 6 of their last 8 in the league, drawing the other two. Incheon United have only won once all season and have the leakiest defence in the league.
Prediction:  2 – 0
Ulsan will be clear favorites to win this one.
