K League Classic 2017 Previews & Predictions (Sunday October 29th- Round 36)

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

Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Jeju United @ 3pm (Championship)

Prediction:  1 – 1
Jeonbuk are 4 points clear and a win here should secure a 3rd title in 4 seasons. However Jeju have won their last 2 and Jeonbuk sometimes struggle in the big games. So we’re siding with a draw.

Suwon Bluewings vs. Gangwon @ 3pm (Championship)

Prediction:  2 – 0
Suwon crashed out of the FA Cup during the week to Challenge side Busan (VAR was involved). Moving back to the league and they’ll be favorites to beat Gangwon, as the visitors have lost their last 2 game and seem to be planning for next season in Chuncheon.

Incheon United vs. Gwangju @ 3pm (Relegation)

Prediction:  0 – 0
A relegation 6-pointer here. Incheon are solid at the back but lacking going forward, whilst Gwangju can score but inconsistently. Based on recent form and past results a goalless draw seems the most likely outcome.

K League Challenge 2017 League Table Update

Gyeongnam have already been confirmed champions booking their place in the 2018 K League Classic. Busan are in the playoffs. Asan Mugunghwa & Seongnam FC seem the most likely to join them, but Bucheon 1995 could still gate-crash the party. Suwon FC, FC Anyang, Seoul E-Land, Ansan Greeners and Daejeon Citizen will all be looking at next season at this point.

K League Classic 2017 Predictions (Sunday October 29th- Round 36)

Here are predictions for this Sunday’s  5 K League Challenge games:

Suwon FC vs. FC Anyang @ 3pm

Prediction: 2 – 1
Suwon looked a little improved winning last weekend, so we see them edging Anyang who are on terrible form at the moment.

Seoul E-Land vs. Bucheon 1995 @ 3pm

Prediction: 0 – 2
Bucheon 1995 should have the edge here, and need a win to keep their playoff dreams alive. Seoul will be out to spoil the party.

Daejeon Citizen vs. Ansan Greeners @ 3pm

Prediction: 1 – 1
Bottom of the table end of season friendly here. 1-1 draw with both sides thankful there is no relegation down to the N-League.

Busan I’Park vs. Asan Mugunghwa @ 3pm

Prediction: 1 – 1
Busan may rest a few players with the playoffs coming up and following their FA Cup win during the week. Still we see it being close and maybe ending in a draw.

Gyeongnam vs. Seongnam FC @ 3pm

Prediction: 0 – 1
Gyeongnam have won the league and with a few key players rumored to be leaving they might rotate the squad. This opens the door for Seongnam to pick up a surprise win and secure a playoff spot.
