The K League season concludes on Sunday afternoon with the second leg of the playoff. The Promotion / Relegation Playoff between Busan I’Park (K League 2) and Gyeongnam FC (K League 1). The winner over two legs takes the final stop in the 2020 K League 1, the loser drops to the 2020 K League 2. The first leg ended 0-0 in Busan on Thursday evening, so the tie is still wide open. Brief Preview and Prediction Here;

K League 2019 Promotion / Relegation Playoff 2nd Leg

When: Sunday December 8th 2019
Who: Gyeongnam FC vs. Busan I’Park

The first leg was unsurprisingly slow and defensive as both teams looked to save energy ahead of the second leg. This game should hopefully be a little more open and attacking, with in my opinion Gyeongnam having the edge whilst playing at home. In the end I see Gyeongnam narrowly winning and retaining their place in the top tier, and Busan sadly failing for the third season on the bounce in the playoffs.

Gyeongnam FC vs. Busan I’Park

Prediction: 2 – 1
