The K League moves into it’s third week of the 2018 season. On Sunday all 4 of the K League sides involved in ACL 2018 play. The highlight game is between 2017 champions Jeonbuk and 2016 champions FC Seoul. Previews and Predictions below;
K League 1: Sunday March 18th 2018 Preview / Predictions
There are 3 games in the K League 1 this Sunday;
Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. FC Seoul (2pm)
The first game of the day in a clash of titans as reigning champions Jeonbuk Hyundai host FC Seoul. Jeonbuk Hyundai slumped to a shock defeat last weekend against relative minnows Incheon, before losing in the ACL during the week. FC Seoul have only a single point from their opening two games and will be underdogs coming into this game. I see Jeonbuk bouncing back and picking up the 3 points.
Prediction: 3 – 1
Ulsan Hyundai vs. Jeju United (2pm)
Game 2 comes from down on the South East coast as Ulsan Hyundai host Jeju United. Both sides are still looking for their first wins in the 2018 K League season and are both struggling in the ACL at the moment. I feel that as Ulsan are at home they should have the edge, but this is a tough one to call.
Prediction: 2 – 0
Suwon Bluewings vs. Pohang Steelers (4pm)
The last game of the day and the weekend features Suwon Bluewings and early league leaders Pohang Steelers. Suwon have bounced back from their opening day defeat to Jeonnam by beating Daegu and then winning in the ACL. Pohang Steelers have a 100% record so far and have been the most impressive team so far during these early rounds of the season. I see Pohang edging this one, partly due to form and because Suwon have played a lot of game recently due to ACL commitments.
Prediction: 1 – 2
