K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Saturday August 12th – Round 26)

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

Sangju Sangmu vs. Incheon United @ 7pm

The first game of the day maybe overshadowed by the bigger games at the same time. Sangju Sangmu host Incheon Unite in this one. Sangju Sangmu have lost 6 games in a row in the league, plus they lost in the cup during the week to Ulsan Hyundai. Incheon United have only 3 wins all season, and have a tendency to draw games 3 of their last 5 for example.
Prediction:  0 – 1
Both sides are in need of a win, and we see Incheon claiming an away double over Sangju.

Jeonnam Dragons vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai @ 7pm

The second game of the day is the 44th Jeolla Derby between Jeonnam Dragons and Jeonbuk Hyundai. Jeonnam Dragons have 7 points from their last 5 league games and lost to Challenge side Busan in the cup during the week. This highlights their inconsistent recent form. Jeonbuk Hyundai lost for only the 3rd time this season last weekend falling 1-0 to Ulsan. Prior to that they’d won 4 games on the bounce.
Prediction:  1 – 2
Jeonbuk will be favorites to win, but you never know when it comes to derby games.

Suwon Bluewings vs. FC Seoul @ 7pm

The the final game on Saturday is the always interesting Super Match between Suwon Bluewings and FC Seoul. Suwon Bluewings have won 4 of their last 5 games in the league, and required extra time to beat Gwangju in the FA Cup during the week. FC Seoul have 3 wins from their last 5 games with their only recent defeat being against league leaders Jeonbuk Hyundai. So both sides are in-form.
Prediction:  2 – 2
Both are strong going forward but sloppy at the back. So we goals maybe cards and overall a draw.
