K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Saturday October 14th – Round 34)

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

Jeju United vs. Gangwon @ 3pm (Championship)

Prediction:  1 – 0
Despite losing last weekend to Jeonbuk we see Jeju having to edge here at home against 6th placed Gangwon.

Pohang Steelers vs. Incheon United @ 3pm (Relegation)

Prediction:  1 – 1
Neither side will want to lose any ground on the rest of the relegation group, so we see this being a cagey draw.

Sangju Sangmu vs. Daegu @ 3pm (Relegation)

Prediction:  1 – 2
Sangju are inconsistent and therefore we’re siding with Daegu, mainly based on their performance beating Jeonnam 4-1 last weekend.
