K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday August 19th – Round 27)

Moving onto the days action, here are our brief previews and predictions for this Sundays 2 games;

Incheon United vs. Pohang Steelers @ 7pm

The first game of the day comes from the Incheon Football Stadium and features 11th placed Incheon United and 7th placed Pohang Steelers. Incheon United won for just the 4th time this season last weekend beating Sangju. Prior to that they’d won 2 and drawn 2. Pohang Steelers have drawn their last 2 games and could jump back into the top half with a win on Sunday afternoon.
Prediction:  1 – 1
Evenly matched based on recent form and therefore we see this ending in a draw.

 

 

Daegu vs. Sangju Sangmu @ 7pm

The final game on Sunday is a key game just above the relegation zone as Daegu host Sangju Sangmu. Daegu have won 3 of their last 5 games and jumped ahead of Sangju last weekend. Despite a strong start to the season Sangju Sangmu had lost their last 6 league games on the bounce and crashed out of the cup.
Prediction:  2 – 0
Daegu will be slight favorites to win this one based on recent form.
