K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday July 16th – Round 21)

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

Incheon United vs. Gangwon @ 7pm

The first game of the day is between two teams having contrasting seasons. Incheon United are currently deep in the relegation battle and were hammered 3-0 on the road against Suwon during the week. However that is their only defeat in 5. Gangwon drew during the week at home to Jeonnam to extend their undefeated run to 5 games.
Prediction:  1 – 1
Incheon are solid and don’t go down without a fight, whilst Gangwon lack that edge 10% to kill games off. Therefore a draw seem the likely outcome.

Jeju United vs. FC Seoul @ 7pm

The second game of the day is a key mid-table battle between Jeju United and FC Seoul. Jeju United beat league leaders Jeonbuk during the week, their first win in 4. A result that pushes them back into the championship picture. FC Seoul also won during the week beating Pohang, however they haven’t been strong on the road so far this season.
Prediction:  2 – 1
We see a narrow home win for Jeju, with maybe a late goal for Seoul.

Sangju Sangmu vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai @ 7pm

The the final game on Saturday is between 8th placed Sangju Sangmu and league leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai. Sangju looked much improved during the week as they eased past the 10men of Daegu. Their first week in 4 games. Jeonbuk Hyundai lost on the road to Jeju United, their 2nd defeat in 4 games. That result highlighted their weakness once again this season being their away form.
Prediction:  0 – 2
Despite Jeonbuk being on paper weak away from home, we feel they should have enough to beat Sangju on Sunday.
