Ulsan Hyundai vs. Sangju Sangmu @ 7pm
The first game of the day comes from the South East Coast and is between 3rd placed Ulsan Hyundai and 11th (2nd from bottom) Sangju Sangmu.

Prediction: 2 – 0
Ulsan will be favorites to take the three points here.
FC Seoul vs. Jeju United @ 7pm
The second game of the day is a top half clash from the Seoul World Cup Stadium. It’s between 5th placed FC Seoul and 2nd placed Jeju United, with both sides still in the hunt for at least Champions League spots this could be key for both. Prior to the International break FC Seoul have picked up 8 points from their previous 4 games, whilst Jeju United had won 3 in a row pushing them up to 2nd. This will be a close game.
Prediction: 1 – 1
Seoul and Jeju seem evenly matched on paper at least. Therefore we’re siding with a draw.
